adult gsd in outhouse? is it okay?
Hello everyone! im new on the gsd forums and im almost definitely going to rehome an adult gsd! i have never owned them before so i just wanted to ask a question on housing..
Im planning to take in a 5 year old who already sleeps in an outhouse and spends quite a bit of his time outside.
Would it be suitable to house a gsd in a heated, lighted outhouse/shed? it will be a good size. in there he will have his foodbowls and bed, and some toys. He will sleep there and stay there when no one is at home. 5 days a week from 8am to 4pm he will have the option to be inside his hut, or be in a portion of the garden which is 8 ft by 3 ft with a lot of toys and things to keep him entertained.
When we are at home, he will be taken for a walk/jog and exercised and have training sessions to teach him new tricks etc. in the evening he may be allowed in the house on some days and on weekends more time will be devoted to him outside, as well as some more time inside relaxing.
Since he is already used to spending his nights outside, even though his current situation is unheated but we will provide that, and in the uk the temperature never drops too low or gets too high, all seasons, i thought this would be okay but what do you think? let me know.
