Alright, here's my question: I'd REAAALLY like to have another dog in the future. Of course I can't right now due to finances, school, and generally dealing with the Rock. But my question is, is the bond stronger with JUST one dog? I know the majority of you here have 2-3... but I realize that you're generally doing the same thing with 2 or 3 dogs that you're doing with one, so you'd think there wouldn't be any difference, right? Well: If you have one dog YOU, the owner, are the one who plays with it. You only do this a portion of the time when you have 2-3 dogs because all of the dogs wear each other out. So if you're playing with him, you're developing a bond-- in my opinion and in my experience. Also, with 2 or 3 dogs you're generally focused on all 3-- not one. The same goes with the dog, he's focused on his other companions. So he has to kind of share the love, if you will. Therefore, you don't get much of the love if it's divided like this. This is all speculation-- I'm really not trying to offend anyone with multiple dogs. But based on what I said, and possibly from your own experiences, if you've ever owned 1 dog at a time and then 2 or 3 dogs, I would love your input. Thanks.
