I saw them live a few years ago. KILLER group!! I met Chuck Negron,who was on lead vocals. What I'd read about them,they got their name from Danny Hutton's girlfriend. She suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground while embracing a dingo (wild dog). On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and, if the night was freezing,they would sleep with three dogs,and it was a "three dog night".
Danny Hutton from 1965,The Bats. I have this 45:

1970 was a killer time for rock and blues. 3DN, Chicago, Moody Blues, Led Zep, etc.
Wow! You guys are making me so nostalgic. I loved those groups. Add to it Deep Purple, Doobie Brothers, Seals & Crofts, Eagles, America. There has not been, and there probably never will be, another era with as great of rock and roll.
I saw Three Dog Night in concert at Utah State University in, I believe it was 1971. I was too young to have a driver's license yet, so my friend and I caught a ride from a guy that worked at the local stereo store, but lived on campus at the fire house.
I also saw them about 12 years ago at Madisonville Community College in Kentucky.
I love Three Dog Night, but admittedly they are one of those groups that have a lot of members that have came and gone over the years. A lot like the axe that is a family heirloom. The handle has been replaced twice and the axe head three times, but it's an original family heirloom.
