    19 Things No One Tells You About Having A Lot Of Dogs

    It's a ruff life.

    1. Your personal space doesn't matter.

    2. Dog hair has become a part of your wardrobe.

    Life w dogs: Pick hair out of my coffee Blow hair off my makeup pallet Brush dog hair off my leggings Lay down w dog hair on my pillow

    3. And part of your bed, too.

    How To Get Rid

    4. They may not always get along.

    5. But they are always incredibly protective of one another.

    Always (im)patiently waiting for the next handout.

    7. Your house has a certain... smell.

    Gave my dog a bath, he wouldn’t let me dry him afterwards so now my whole house smells like wet dog...

    8. Sleeping can be quite the struggle.


    9. And leaving them everyday is a constant battle.

    10. You have different voices for each dog.

    "Why do you talk to your dog in weird voices like it's a person" First of all, he has feelings

    How else will they be able to know who you're talking to?

    11. And about a million names for them, too.

    I’m that annoying dog mom that has 100 different names for her dog that legit make no sense whatsoever. 🐶🐾❤️

    12. You're always buying new toys for them.

    I speak from personal experience when I say Target's toy section is equal parts cute and dangerous.

    13. Giving each dog an equal amount of attention will be tough.


    Who should you pet first? The answer is all of them, at the same time.

    14. Their sleep schedules will mostly depend on you.

    Life With Dogs

    After all, you are the one they spend the most time with.

    15. And figuring out their bathroom schedules is no walk in the park, either.

    I’ll just consider this dog pee all over my bathroom floor an act of love

    Don't worry, you'll get their routines down in a year or two.

    16. Speaking of walks in the park, LOL good luck.

    You never know your true strength until you take five dogs on a walk.

    17. Barking will become part of your everyday life.

    Like, A LOT of barking.

    18. At least one of your dogs will end up doing something incredibly dumb.

    But it will only make you love them that much more.

    19. But at the end of the day, no one tells you how satisfying it is to walk into your house and be greeted by your dogs, who act like they haven't seen you in 87 years.

    Hate coming home to three happy dogs and only two hands to love them
