It is double the work, you know have to fill the expectations of two dogs rather then one. So you play 30 minutes of fetch with one dog, the first one is all tired and happy and then round 2 starts with the next one. Same with training, you need to train each seperately and then together. All expenses are increased as well

In the end if you're willing to put in the time, it's well worth it. Both my dogs fill different needs and are treasured companions. I'd get a third in a heartbeat if I had the space, but 3 would be my personal limit. I'd love a female GSD and Delgado would love a companion to play with on a daily basis lol

My Pack:

Jasmine - Female Miniature Poodle - born Aug 15, 2010
Loker Delgado Von Stalworth - Male GSD - born Jan 26, 2012
Koda & Zazu - 6 year old male cats
Alex - Male Cocker Spaniel (rescue) - RIP Cuddlebug 2007-2010
