I'm sure it's obvious that two dogs requires almost twice as many dog things. What's not so obvious, is what exactly you actually need to duplicate when you add another furry family member. Some things can easily be shared or handed down between dogs, but you can't easily share a single leash - at least not if you're all out together! Here, we're sharing a downloadable checklist of all the things that we had to double when Gilfoyle joined our pack.
Download the checklist here and a few notes on the list:
Play. To avoid brawls, we usually buy chews, special treats and toys in multiples of twos.
Eat. Your newest friend may require a special type of kibble, but be sure to keep things separate. Gilly eats a puppy formula of kibble, while Pierogi has recently moved on to something a little different. We store their food in glass jars on our kitchen counters.
Essentials. Don't forget all the little things, like: another poop bag dispenser, an identification tag and updating your Dog Binder. (This would also be an important thing to update.)
What else would you add to the checklist? Does anyone have three or more dogs? Does that affect the checklist even more? Does your pack just pile onto one giant dog bed instead of separate beds?
Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days. Because life's more fun with your best (furry) friend by your side. So grab a bone and follow along as we stop to sniff the flowers...
