A third dog?
We're thinking of adding a third dog to our two-dog, one-cat household. I hadn't thought about the possible down side of it until today, so thought I'd get some input from the pros.
Our ACD mix girl is 7, and we have an Aussie/Border mix girl that is a year old. My initial thought with getting another young dog was to give the Aussie another companion more her age so that the ACD girl can get some rest! That and the rescue where we got our Aussie has another similar male pup available.
Of course there will be additional feeding and vet expenses. That's not an issue. We live in dog paradise with three fenced acres, so room to roam and run and dig and rip and snort is not an issue. He'll get obedience training and be crate trained like the other two. And the cat is actually pretty dominant over the two existing dogs -- he sets the tone. But is there anything inherently more difficult with three rather than two? Other than just handling the "extra" pup if we take them out somewhere on leash?
