Has anyone moved their dog to live outside, if so, how did you do it? I would like to make it a nice experience and not make him too upset.

Is 12 weeks still too young, or perfect time to do it? I know that when we are at home, he will most prob come and go inside as he is well behaved. It's mostly going to be to sleep at night and really to set a boundary for when were having dinner, have important things to do and go up to sleep.

All suggestions are welcome!
If setting boundaries is your goal why not crate train or build him a nice run outside where he can be safely contained when you need to. Just my opinion, but why get a pet if you are going to leave him outside alone? Any number of things can happen to a dog left unattended and alone. And 12 weeks is still just a baby.
