Ok I will start by saying I have grown up with dogs from Great danes - Yorkies. Blue Hellers, Black labs,and Dobbies. They were all outside dogs only inside in the boot room part in the winter when it was to cold for them to be outside.
Before Zeus I had a husky who wouldn't come in the house even if you tried bribbing her with a treat she wouldn't step in. Even on the coldest days and blizzarding weather she would stay out never wanted in we tried to get her to come in but no way.
She (Nikki) ended up passing away 2 years ago
She was a great dog loved to run.
Well I have been looking things up and have read lots that rotti's should not be an outside only dog that they well dominate etc.. and they need to be in the house with there owner all the time.. If i could I would have him as an indoor dog but he seems to love it outside also Letting him be an inside dog would not go over good due to my hubby doesnt like big dogs in the house and believe there best place is outside. In the winter sence i live in Northern Alberta he will be in the porch on them cold cold days
Well I dont know if there is any one else on here that s dogs are outside only and I know on another message board I was reading at that is for rottis only I Was alarmed how ppl got very ignorant with a question about a dog spending most time outside.
Zeus has a huge dog house that sheldon built him for out side with a big blanket in it. He is feed all the time and We go outside with him for long periods at a time. Of course when it is raining we dont go out as much to see him but we still go out and play with him a little. We do take him with us to town and also will be taking him on holidays like camping etc. Im just now even more so worrie dthat Im going to mess up on him and he wont be a good dog if he is outside only does any one have or know of any one that has or had a rotti that was outside only?
