# of dogs --- 1 (BC/Aussie mix)
age of dog --- 3 years 3 months.
list and $ of any activities. ---- We've been to 2 Ob classes costing $100 each. Then we have been to 4 agility classes costing $40 each, totaling $160. (but we got about 3 agility classes free)
amount spent on food/monthly --- $20
amount spent on toys/monthly --- $5-$10
amount spent on necessities (other than food)/monthly --- $40 ( Vet visit, Heartworm, Frontline)
amount spent on vacations if you take your dog with and how much it cots to have the dogs go with, OR, amount spent on boarding/not monthly, unless you take a lot of vacations. --- Our dogs stay home, and we have some one coming to watch them for free. Otherwise it would be about $10 a day at the vet.

What I would need is:

# of dogs (1 Great Dane)

age of dogs (2 years of age)

list and $ of any activities (agility, showing, etc) dogs are involved in/monthly (just rescue volunteering appearances - no cost aside from Gas)

amount spent on food/monthly ($120)

amount spent on toys/monthly (Approximately $20 though some months we may splurge)

amount spent on necessities (other than food)/monthly (Medications: $215)

amount spent on vacations if you take your dog with and how much it cots to have the dogs go with, OR, amount spent on boarding/not monthly, unless you take a lot of vacations. (Haven't been on vacation since we've had Hannah aside from the occasional trip to the mountains, where she travels with us and doesn't cost anything)

If you buy your supplies in bulk, you can give that info as well, but please let me know how long your "bulk" lasts for. (Treats and chewies, marrow bones, etc - approximately $50.00 per month)

I would like someone with one, two dogs, three dogs, and then four or more dogs. I would also like to know size of breeds, small, medium, large, giant, etc.. as that will definitely play a factor in food amounts, etc. (Hannah is a, um, giant breed....der. )

You can PM it to me or include it here. No names necessary (i.e. dog #1)and a rough estimate is okay, as long as it's somewhat accurate and not something like "give or take $100".

TIA!

Hope this helps with your project.

Okay, I'll be basing this off of what our family pays. Blitz is sponsered, so his sponsers pay for most everything.

# of dogs: 1
age of dogs: almost 5 months
list and $ of any activities (agility, showing, etc) dogs are involved in/monthly:If obedience classes count, I am taking one in september, and the cost for the eight week course is 150, but the sponsers are paying 100 of it.
amount spent on food/monthly:0 dollars. (Sponsers pay)
amount spent on toys/monthly: Now this I pay for. I'd say...Maybe fifteen/twenty dollars??
amount spent on necessities (other than food)/monthly:Leashes, collars, beds, that kind of stuff, about twenty dollars a month, since I only get that kind of stuff every once in a while. (It's not like I get a new collar every month LOL)
amount spent on vacations if you take your dog with and how much it cots to have the dogs go with, OR, amount spent on boarding/not monthly, unless you take a lot of vacations:Seeing as it is a guide dog in training, there is no extra charge to take my puppy. (He hasn't gone anywhere big yet though, since he is still so young.)

Gosh, I wish I could help you out too Nikki. But I've never figured it out. The mere prospect of being enlightened terrifies me....what with Lyric's special needs in particular. Four dogs takes a lot. Maybe I'll add it all up one of these days and let you know.
