    that they don’t get the training, exercise and socialization they need
    that they don’t need to own a dog to live out in yard
    dogs are pack animals they need to live in house with pack

    Depends on the dog. Our small dogs were only outside when we were and never left alone because of their size. Now my German Shepherd Dog prefers being outside. There are exceptions tho, if the weather is freezing or really hot he is in the house. At nite he is also in the house with me. He has access to the garage where his water is kept and it does not freeze in the winter, likewise includes carpet strips to lay on and his bed. My neighbor on the other hand has a collie that he leaves chained up, she has water, and never walks/plays with her, so why the h— bother.

    Personally, I think why have a dog if your going to leave it out in the back yard. Dogs are social animals and want to be with their people.

    Depends – there’s a difference between owners who put their dogs out for practical reasons (working animal for instance) and owners who throw their dog out because they can’t house train it or because “the dog’s too destructive.” IMO there are too many “outside dogs” that are outside because they have lazy owners who want the novelty of having a dog but don’t want to put the effort into training, exercise, stimulation, or socialization.

    I personally know a family who had a pair of hunting Beagles that had their own out outdoor run complete with heated/cooled dog house. The dog never went in the house, but they got their exercise and play time with the family. Then there’s another family i know that keeps their PUGS outside on a chain. I never see those dogs off the chains and i rarely see anyone outside with them.

    Like i said, some owners can swing it while others can’t.

    depends on what the dog is like… if it likes to destroy things then it is a good idea for it to be an outside dog. i personally dont think much of outside dogs, im a dog person so i think of them as family and them being inside makes them feel like part of the family. i find they are more happy inside, but then again it could be a very energetic dog so lots of walks would be good but i suppose it could be left out during the day and brought in in the afternoon and night….. outside dogs look more scruffy ad feral…..

    I personally wouldn’t have a dog if i was gonna keep it outside 24/7. I don’t see the point in owning one if that’s what your going to do with it. Your just gonna end up with a dog that’s miserable and has issues.

    I have two dogs outside and two dogs inside the larger breeds are outside and the smaller ones are inside and there really is no problem with the dogs being outside, as long as they’ve the apporiate shelter and water available at all times.

    i think that is messed up. my dog is an indoor/outdoor dog that sleeps in my bed, but he has a dog door to the back yard. hes a big dog too. some people are way to strict with there dogs. if you have seen some of the training videos, and you have already had your dog for a while it will make you kinda sick. they tell you to keep the dog in a cage until you want to walk it, or play with it. so stupid!
