Nice he wanted to keep his cat (and family) safe, but I've never heard of a DS breeder known for cat-friendly litters.
As far as owning more than one DS because it helps keep them busy with each other, that is not an absolute. It's wonderful that you have had an experience where that holds true--because of the dogs you own and your abilities. This wouldn't work for most of the average dog owners, IMO.
I love your passion for the breed, please understand that. I think you have a situation (for lack of a better word) that not many average Joes could handle. And handle well. Without the dog(s) receiving the short-end of the stick.
My trainer thinks I'm crazy for having three of these dogs. Thing is a lot of people on here own more than one I thought. Two usually. They are a lot of fun and definitely keep me busy.
