Lilie My dog(s) stays out in the yard during the day. I have a hot wire on the top of my 4' chain link fence.

ladyb My dog stays out during the day. She has a large kennel, garage access, water, etc. I also had an invisible fence installed. I know that there are varying opinions about this containment system, but it works GREAT for her.

LoveEcho I'm confused by people who get this breed and then hate that they shed.

Anyways, she'll be fine crated inside- many of us crate during the day. She can relax, and have a treat like a filled kong to keep her entertained. If you really want to keep her outside while you're not home, a roofed kennel with a concrete floor is the way to go. The coyote rollers are an awesome idea for if she's outside while you're home, but I still wouldn't be comfortable giving her free roam of the yard while I was gone- they're not foolproof.

And worrying about you leaving may very well be because of the new house My guy always gets extremely clingy for a while after a move. A space of her own might help it to pass.

The things in top of the fence are called COYOTE ROLLERS and can be purchased or made for the intention of keeping coyotes out of yards or in this case keeping dogs in. Google coyote rollers...I was looking at these a couple years ago in case I had an issue with coyotes.

Its a cable wire run from fence post to fence post, the cable is inside of a small PVC pipe. Then putting a larger PVC pipe on, this will allow the larger PVC pipe to spill freely if to pup tries to climb the fence. Pretty easy and cheap to set up.

Germanshepherdlova Owning a GSD and vacuuming go together like peanut butter and jelly,
I suggest training her to stay off the furniture and letting her stay inside-that's how I leave both of my boys when I'm not home. Depends on the age of your dog and how well trained she is of course.

coulter And even if you do put them in a 10 x10 kennel or bigger. Take off their collar so they can't strangle on that
