Another reason I, personally, don't like the idea of several young puppies (besides the extra work and stress!) is that they all will eventually get the same time. Which means you deal with health issues and potentially end of life care around the same time and that can be emotionally taxing. My family had three dogs that were within a span of 2 1/2 years in age. Two passed away last year within 6 months of each other and the last is showing her age as well (though I do think she'll live much longer!) it's not an easy thing.

Even mid life you may decide you want another puppy....only to already have three dogs under your roof.

I think your current plan is a good one, though :)
