How many dogs do you have, and what are their breeds?
What is your limit on how many dogs you feel you can responsibly handle?
I am curious if anyone else out there has 5+ indoor outdoor dogs..
If you do, how do you make it work? Any tips?
We have 5 dogs and are thinking about adding a 6th. two are small breeds under 15lbs. the other dogs are all above 60lbs. we are thinking of adding another dog, but not another large dog.. maybe like a sheltie or a corgi, or smaller border collie mix.
We live in town, there is not a limit on how many dogs are allowed. we do have a medium sized yard and it will be fenced soon! thank goodness!!!!
Luckily all the dogs get along great and they are mellow. We dont have any problems with having so many dogs but it does take extra time to give them all walks. i always have to have help where we can walk 3 or 4 at a time. the chow mix of mine has to be crated while he eats, and we cannot leave bones out either if my two males are out.
other than that we have been lucky and things have went very smoothly!
We do not feed as good of dog food as i wish we did because of the number of dogs i have to feed, but they eat pretty good stuff. I dont think anyone is suffering for attention either, they all have seemed to learned to take turns and are not jealous of each other MUCH! lol
since our yard in not fenced a few times a week i take them to run in a safely enclosed area too. sooo cant wait for the yard to get fenced!
it is a lot more money and a bit more work, takes more time for sure.. but i love having a house full of dogs.
