According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), “having a multi-dog home can be great, but it’s not for everyone or every dog.”

Before adopting multiple dogs, the AKC says individuals should remember that there’s an increased cost to owning several dogs.

“You’ll want to do long-term financial planning for the costs of adding additional dogs to your family,” the organization suggested. “When looking at your budget, pay special attention to added veterinary costs for senior dogs or injured dogs that need surgery or longer-term care.”

Additionally, multiple dogs require extra supervision and are ultimately a greater time commitment.
