Does your GSD prefer to be inside or outside?

I'm curious. I have two GSD's, Harley and Uschi, with free access to the yard and inside via the doggie door. Uschi would prefer to be outside, Harley likes the inside. I find this odd, since Harley is LC and Uschi is a SC. They both go outside to play all the time, but when it comes naptime, Harley is always under the kitchen table and Uschi is outside laying in the yard. Anyone else have dogs that would rather be outside?

What do you think?




Seriously, Gunner wants to be wherever I am.
He loves going outside, but wants ME to go with him. If I put him out, he stands at the door looking in (like the picture). If I ignore him enough, he'll eventually lay down out there. Only if a squirrel risks it's life by going into my yard, will he go out into the yard.

I think Annie would be happy if we all lived outside. She'd stay out all day long if I let her.
Harley doesn't seem to care if he's in or out, as long as he's with his humans.

It depends on if there is or isn't snow out there. If there is snow they can stay out there day and night. If there isn't it's not as interesting LOL

Jasmine is the same as Gunnar. Normally when she goes out I have to have her on lead because we live in an apt. But when we go to my bf's parents they have a fenced in yard I let her roam. She's out there maybe ten mins and then sits on the porch waiting to be let in. We joke all the time that if it came down to it and for some wierd reason she had to be put outside for Lon periods of time the diva would never make it. Lol

Wherever I am. If it's a beautiful day and I leave the back door open, the dogs will often go outside and lie in the sun for hours. I can barely get them to come in. As soon as I shut the door, though, they're standing at the back window looking pitiful, wanting to come back in.
