I'm a nervous Nellie, so my dogs do not spend any time outside unsupervised. Our property while large, is not fenced so they could easily decide to chase a cat or fox or deer into the next county. They are only outside if we are outside with them. We do have a small fenced in play area, but they won't really play in there together unless we are there to help facilitate the play (throw the ball or whatever).

My husband works from home, so they are not crated when they are inside the house.

Mine have always been inside, however, if I'm out they are out, and they often times are out by themselves with me in the house. I do have a huge fenced yard

When I work, they are inside, the male aussie is always crated, the two girls (aussie and gsd) have free roam of the house.

We have runs outside which they are in at times when it is nice but when we are home they are inside with us and sleep inside. They are never loose outside unless we are with them.

Mine lives inside with me, partially for safety reasons. He can jump the fence so I don't leave him out side unsupervised. I also have a large out door kennel for occasional use but he does not live in there. He is part of the family so he stays inside where we are.
