Inside. What's the point of an outside dog?

Mostly inside, but she has a doggy door so she can go out/in whenever she wants.

Is this you still trying to convince your dad to get one as an indoor dog? Because judging by your other thread it seems like nothing is going to convince him otherwise.

No. Just wondering. If you saw my previous post you know that me getting a GSD is a no go. This is just for fun. Getting people's opinion

My dogs have always been inside, with me. Just because they CAN survive outside doesn't mean they SHOULD. The entire point is to have a companion. If I go outside, then my dog(s) come with me. And if I'm inside, that's where the dog(s) will be. Simple as that.

Inside/outside. He stays outside when we aren't home and he sleeps outside. It's made his separation anxiety extremely easy to manage if he gets enough alone time each day. I can actually leave the house and leave him alone IN the house and not come back to a mangled crate, claw marks, broken windows, and stress diarrhea everywhere. But when he spends too much time around people and gets used to it, he goes back to his anxious ways if you try to leave him alone to do something simple like go get groceries.

I also like having him outside enough so that his coat adjusts to the weather.

All my Adult dogs are outside when we are not home.They have an open Run and the backyard. They are in the run at night. My puppy stays crated in the AC in the house while we work and mostly crated at night. We are very active and we go to the river alot in the spring/summer and hike. My adults also jog next to me during the cool parts of the morning or evening. We bike alot in the fall. In the winter I put on my Carharts and we walk through the woods alot. I used to try to keep them inside. After they lay at me or my girlfriends feet or both for an hour, they just sit at the door and stare at me.
They prefer to br outside. If they wanted to be inside thats where they would be.

Keep it Real with Yourself

My guys are mainly indoor, but I voted for both because they love to be outside to run on the property. Around the hottest part of the day, I usually have to make them come in.
