    DefaultWhat I have learned with 7 dogs in the house

    First and foremost, you are not IT. Collectitvely, they are. You just pretend and posture like you're IT. With so many dogs of varying sizes, I have learned:

    Wooden-soled clogs are going to damage little paws. Put clogs on top shelf and carress them from time to time.
    Walking sideways like a crab is sometimes the best way out.
    Deception: Who wants a treat? (Throw treats into the back yard while you get the he!! outta Dodge through the front door.)
    Adopting a really annoying high-pitched sing-songy voice to say "good dog" really has its merits.
    Juggling three small dogs and one medium sized dog on the couch works, with maybe one lab thrown in for good measure.
    One-on-One time with this many is a myth! (go ahead... Snopes it)
    The smaller dogs are far more demanding than the larger labs. Ignoring littlies does NOT work. Smaller dogs are like Langeliers.
    Your home will never be dirt free for more than 10 minutes at a time.
    They don't ALL like their faces washed.
    You CAN comfortably make room on a queen sized bed for 5, but not all 7. Size is crucial to the combination of dogs accommodated.
    The kitchen is theirs, not yours.
    The bathroom is theirs, not yours.

    And finally, "All SIT!" is a wonderment of the pack doing what mom says. It's short, but sweet.

    I only have one dog and I've got the crabwalk down!

    Guilty! I do this when I absolutely need Taffy to do her business because I'm leaving for awhile. She doesn't need to go out, doesn't want to go out, but if I throw the treat, she'll follow. Then I figure if I get her outside, the idea will hit - outside/potty! In reality it means outside/treat.
