|3 works very well for me. Right now it's only two, though!! There is no "odd man out" when there's 3 because Socks just wants to take naps, she could care less if she was left out of anything... except for eating, there would be hell to pay if she didn't get to eat. So that leaves Jasmine and whatever foster is here at the time to play together and be best buds.
I've had five at one time, though... even then it wasn't too bad. Jasmine, Sawyer, and Wiggles would create a "chase chain" and run after eachother all through the yard, somehow avoided crashing into Max and tripping over Socks (most of the time, anyway). Occasionally Max would join in the running fun and even then it wasn't too bad. Then a pair would branch off to wrestle and the other would just watch and wait for their turn. Although Sawyer kinda beat up on Wiggles, poor girl. Anyway, it all depends on the dogs, I could not have lived with those 5 forever, it was hectic but doable for a short amount of time. There were 3 high energy dogs, that's what made it tough. Sawyer was an "in & out" dog and hardly ever rested! Geez!
Now, however, I am completely LOST with only 2 dogs!!! It is so weird! I cannot wait to get back up to 3... 3 is a very cozy number for me. 4 is not too bad, either.
