    Default Just for fun .... how many dogs is too many??

    So this is just for fun!!

    At what point does somebody have too many dogs!!!?????


    We came over from England with just the two (shih-tzu poodle mix and mini schnauzer) and in the 3 1/2 years we've been in Ohio have managed to increase that by another 4, to make a total of 6!!!

    I found that once you get past 3 dogs it becomes a "pack" and so the hairy crowd that follows you around the house merely gets a little bigger. So actually not that much of a difference ... just more friends following you around when you're cleaning the house.

    So why do I get greeted by this look of astonishement and amazement when I happen to mention I have 6 dogs like I'm some kinda alien .... :p

    One client actually said to me .........." You have six dogs .... six... thats SIX dogs?!!" So I burst out .... "You have eight children!" Childish I know ... but she does ....... (I'd rather have the six dogs).

    Like I said .. just for fun .............. please do not take offence if you too happen to have eight kids. <o

    I have two, and want at least one more furry kid. I have had to "oversee" seven dogs at once, but they are owned by a dog trainer so it wasn't really too much work. Four or five would be my personal limit but also live in a smaller three bedroom home.

    We have 3, 2 Bulldogs and a Belgium Malanois. I don't know if there is a magic number. As long as you are capable of taking care of them and their needs, go for it.

    We were watching Discovery the other night and they advertised a show about hording. The next episode was on animal hording, cats. Terri looked at me and said "Hey if you don't stop looking at puppy and rescue pictures, that may end up to be us" Who ever heard of a dog lady? It is always a Cat Lady.lol

    Always with me

    As long as you can keep up with personal care, vetting,cleanup and most importantly love I think there's no upper number.

    For some one is too many, for some the sky's the limit.

    Great answers.

    I love having 5. They are each different too, so I have no favorites. One thing I must admit, that I miss about have one is the personal one on one spoiled love and attention. Try sitting on the floor with 5 bulldogs for some love. You WILL get mauled!!! So one on one time has to be made, and planned. Organization and planning for me, because 2 don't get along. So yeah, it is much more difficult than just having one. Two is nice cuz they can be playmates, and you can still manage that one on one playtime and not get completely mauled on the floor!

    Everyday is a party when you own a bulldog!

    I havent thought of how many is too many really. We only have the 2 now, my eb and my pug but I SO would LOVE another bully wether it be french or english etc. My hubby and I are both animal people and I think I am actually the rational 1. He would have already brought home 4 more dogs if it werent for me being logical about it all. haha. Our bed is full with the 2 we have so I dont know where we would get more room, the beds dont come any bigger than cal king. :p The limit here legally for the lot size is unfortunately 3, we didnt know that when we bought the house or we would have looked at a bigger lot size. SAD!

    Right now at my house I own 3 dogs. 1 American Bulldog, 1 English Bulldog, and 1 English Bulldog/Black Lab mix. But, then I foster French Bulldogs. The last one stayed for almost 9 months (because of health problems). So, usually 4 here.
