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.

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.
