If you have an area where he can get warm if he needs to and he doesn't want to go in, then he is warm enough.
I keep two dogs in the yard when I'm at work. I'm in South Texas, so it doesn't get that cold, but it's all relative. My dogs aren't used to really cold weather. I have three igloo houses that I put hay in when it gets cold (they'll take blankets out and run around the yard with them). Rarely do they ever go in. The igloos are on my covered porch, so it keeps them out of the wind and rain.
However, if we're expecting bad storms and it's really cold - I'll kennel them in the house. More for my benefit then theirs.

|zgil86||It's just a metal create. He seems pretty active in there since when I came home from work every plush toy was shredded. The igloo seems like a good ideas. The only problem with that he never stay in. Oh well....|

|Sarah~||I think it will be fine, then. They have pretty thick coats I thought about it some more and I guess that's not so bad.|

|Lilie||Is he able to get out of the cold? Do you have a igloo type dog house in your sun room with a blanket, that he can curl up in and heat with his own body?|

|zgil86||He does have blanket, carpet, yes.|

|Sarah~||That's pretty cold... Does he have a blanket to lay on? How long are you going to be at work? I'm no expert but that really does seem awfully cold to me. Then again I don't have a fur coat.|

|zgil86||Also, I forgot to mention that obviously inside will be wormer, no wind.|

Is this OK?
So I have a 5 month old GSD. I left him in my sunroom. The current temp outside is 37 degrees F. Today, the temp shows between 35f-40F. He will be sitting there until I get home from work. Is this too cold for him? Can puppies withhold such temperatures or will it be too cold for him? Itís a huge space where he can run around in instead of being locked in crate all day.What would too cold be for a 5 month old pup?
