Hey Sarah

Welcome to the board. How different was it going from 2 to 3. We are considering a third although I am not sure I want to go with a 10 week old puppy again!

Hi,

By the time i got Disson Barney was 5 and Reeno was 3. I knew that Barney would cope with another new pup around as hes so laid back, Reeno i wasnt so sure on as he was the (and still is) the center of attention and my best friend.

Once Disson arrived (he already knew me as I was with him everyday from 2h old) he soon settled in mixed with the other dogs. He became best friends with our Border Collie and would play with hm all day. Once you have 2 Cavs you dont feel the differance of a 3rd. They all just mix and play with each other. The only problem we had was when he reached 12-18mth old when he hit the teenage stage. He tried to fight for top dog but top dog soon put him in place. You feel the differance when you have 1 then go to 2 dogs, but after that you dont notice anymore. Id never be without a Cavalier now.

One benafit is its easy to house train a pup with 2 adults in as they follow them and they dont cry or at least not much when left as they have someone to be with. :lol:

Uh oh, don't confirm my suspicions... :lol:

Maggie you had ONE cavalier when we first were on aboard together, now in just over a year you have acquired two more plus Nikko.. :lol: You are a bad example to us all...

Yup, a big huge bad example :P Going from 1 to 2 we definitely noticed... 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 was a much less noticeable change :P 3 to 4 was no big deal to us because we had already been fostering 1 or 2 at a time as well.
