We do crate but only because tawny wants to be in hers. The way our house is set up you close a sliding door and its blocked in two sections so you are good. There have been times when we had multiple dogs who did not get along and it was a pain. our girls just don't get along now. Lived like this so long its a non issue. Would be nice if everyone could run in and out at once but not happening.

I have had up to 5 dogs at one time, and one thing I insist on is everyone gets along.

I would go bonkers if I had to c/r..

Yes well you can insist till you are blue in the face. But some dogs aren't going to be ok together. I used to think that way... after coming in to a blood bath (yes both dogs were crated) and having to have one of their gums stitched back to their jaw, I don't think that anymore.

This. It's dangerous to not be realistic.

I read it as they dont have dogs that need to c&r and dont know if they could handle it if they did. NOT as they are so awesome they can just 'insist' a dog not wanna kill the other

Perhaps. I just run into "well I just don't accept dog aggression so I just insist all my dogs get along and they do" all the freaking time. So that might be why I read it that way.

Hopefully the poster comes back and explains

I have five dogs currently and it's silly to imagine them all getting along at all points all the time. No one is truly hating towards another, but my Dachshund has a short fuse with my teenager, my teenager bothers every one to a certain point, and I have two resource guarders. When my second female was added my first DID NOT like her and I thought for sure we would be a crate and rotate home, but every thing has settled in a way where I can trust them to be in the same room together (when we're present)

No crates in involved, but we have an apartment attached to our house that my foster currently stays in. I am hesitant to declare her dog aggressive rather than just fearful, but she does not seem thrilled with the idea that other dogs exist so she is NOT allowed around them and vice versa. We are working to see if she could potentially become comfortable around other dogs, but I'm not for certain.

The rotation itself is stressful for me as well. I work every day from afternoon to evening. At this point I'm hardly sleeping because I am constantly worried no one is getting enough time. I get up at 9, feed my dogs and do things with them. Around 11 I venture to the apartment and feed her, do things with her, and then by 1 I have to get ready for work. When I get home from work I have about 2-3 hours to eat, do normal life things and spend more time with the dogs, and then I retire to the apartment until about 3 in the morning to hang out with her. It's worth it because she's alive, but it ain't easy. It would be SO MUCH easier if she was just fine with dogs and every one can be together, but we manage.
