I really get very upset with people who buy one dog, expect that dog to stay at home by itself all day long. when they are gone all day at work, this is torture for a dog. I understand a lot of people get dogs when they don't have an understanding of owning animals. They're just like people, and as grumpy as some of us are, even we like company. Dogs need a buddy too...

Always at least a two dog household! People are just ignorant most times though. Now again....ignorant is not a bad word!

We had a single dog for years and she was just fine. Once we added her brother she was a bit more spry though.

But yes, 2+ dogs is better than 1.

And dogs should not live in apartments. Unless they're little yippy ankle biters, which aren't real dogs anyway.

In the first you can't tell where one dog ends and the other begins!

Fantastic.

Thought I would regret the decision, but they seem to be inseparable now.

Not mentioned, the TRAINING! I got 'Sophie' (a golden back) in 89, my best bud got one of her litter mates. They spent their 9-5 day in my fenced yard while we worked, and then of course we trained them together. Talk about learn fast! Wow... You tell them to stay, or fetch on demand for example, give the one that does as it's told a treat, the other figures it out immediately. Only wish I could have done this with the two dogs I have had since. Sophie and her litter mate Travis spent their entire life together (we ended up being neighbors on the bay in NJ).. Convinced raising the two together was the perfect way. Training Thelma, after Sophie passed was more time consuming, and she never quite 'got it' the way Sophie did.... Now Storm, a Great Pyrenees, just as sweet and loyal as a dog can be, but not as smart as a golden and surely 100X more stubborn and barks 1000X more.

We have a 5 year old lab who has become very needy. The more attention we give him- the more he wants. We decided to get another lab puppy to be his bud. Hope we don’t regret it. We have never had more than one but everyone we know with two highly recommends...
