I've never owned a dog who slept outside except for my Cocker Spaniel, Andy. He HATED being indoors ... whenever we brought him in the house he'd be happy for a few minutes then want to go right back outside. He had access to an outdoor dog house with a bed in the summer and we would put it inside during the winter (he had a tunnel and dog door to get inside the under-the-house garage anytime he wanted but he liked sleeping outside in the summer. He always had a bed in the garage when he didn't want to sleep in the dog house. When the temperature got bitter cold he had to sleep in my bedroom and he was MISERABLE ... he couldn't wait to get back outside. Other than Andy, all the rest of my dogs have preferred being in the house and stretching their legs outside for a couple hours several times a day.
