    I have one dog and no children now (but we plan on getting a second dog before we have kids).  But growing up we always had 2-3 dogs and there were 3 of us kids and there never seemed to be a problem.  As kids we loved helping feed them and play with them and go on walks and such!  Obviously when the kids are really little, they can’t share in the responsibilities but I still don’t think you’d have a problem.  I’m the oldest and my parents had 3 dogs when I was born.  I’ve been told I was the “baby from hell” and almost didn’t have any younger siblings because of it and “baby from hell” me and 3 dogs weren’t too much to handle! 🙂

    I have two dogs and no children. I think getting them now and training them before kids is much better since they are already starting to be under voice command and walking off leash. I am so glad that my kids will be able to always grow up with pets. I would just be worried that if I didn’t have them now it would be too much work to train a puppy while having an infant and would need to wait until my kids were older.

    Amd they keep each other company. They can entertain themselves for a little while, at least much more than one would.

    I have one dog and no children. But I’ve put a lot of thought into another dog, and children. My hubby is very against it (second dog, not children) mainly b/c our dog is such high maintenence. He has seperation anxiety so our house is suffering from it, he’s always doing something to tear it apart when we’re gone. Also, he’s a big dog, and I wouldn’t trust walking him with a baby, so two of him and a baby just won’t happen. If he were smaller and more well behaved, I might have a chance in convincing my hubby for another dog!
