One puppy for me at a time and then a 5 yr split until I even consider getting another!

Takes that long for me to forget how much work they are and just remember how cute they are and that wonderful puppy breath!

Only one puppy at a time. WAY too much work otherwise. And I think 2 dogs per responsible dedicated handler is about all a person can handle. DH and I have 5 dogs...but Ike's a senior and already trained. No way are we adding another unless someone gets to stay home and not work...

One puppy at a time with a minimum of 2-3 year age difference.

Not too sure which option to pick in your poll for that though...

New dog every year?


I have one now, but he's my first puppy since we got Rocky back in 2002.

I've had two puppies in the last 4 years. I love puppies! But my pups have been pretty good, no destruction and easy to train. I would love to be a puppy raiser if they were all like the two I've had recently.
I dread the day my "pup" turns 2(in a few weeks) but I'm not getting another puppy for a long, long time.
Puppy stage just doesn't last long enough, IMO.

We have adult rescues, except Skylar is my puppy (9 months)
I hate to say it, but I don't think i'd get an adult again- I really like raising a pup the way i want to, and being in total control of how they turn out.
