Are Two Dogs Twice the Fun

By MKClinton. | Dog Info

Have you thought about adding another dog to your family? It is not a decision to be made lightly. There are several things to consider before making a lifetime commitment. I love having two dogs, but it is not for everyone.

Here are a few things to think about before adding the pitter patter of four more paws to your home.

  • Does your current dog enjoy playing with other dogs? You don’t want to become a referee instead of a pet parent. Scheduling a meet and greet with both dogs can be extremely beneficial before making a final decision.
  • Do you have plenty of room for two dogs? Dogs are going to play chase and wrestle. They need some space where they can just be dogs. Size matters.
  • Are you financially able to add another dog to the family? Consider food, vet bills, heartworm/flea preventatives and supplies. Twice the dogs = twice the expense.
  • Do you have the time to commit to two dogs? That includes feeding, training, grooming, playing and taking them for walks. Two dogs also mean twice the poop you’ll have to scoop!
  • Would you be bringing home a puppy or an adult dog? I don’t have to tell you that puppies are A LOT of work! They are precious, but an older dog might be less likely to wreak havoc in your house.

If you have answered these questions and feel confident, then congratulations! You are ready to bring home another best friend. I cannot imagine having only one dog. My personal experience living with two dogs has been extremely positive. I highly recommend it if it suits your lifestyle.

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Perfect seat cover- just what I was looking for

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.
