opinions please

I keep hearing tons of people(mainly on Facebook) saying that dogs shouldn't be chained outside etc etc. Well my uncle had a dog chained outside for 12 years,no health problems. Now he has a doberman that's been outside all its life(its older than 9 but im not sure on exact age) healthy as can be.

Bailey is outside,she has 3 fleece blankets in her house and I will be getting some straw for in there also. IMO she will be fine,but should I listen to all these people and bring her in ? shes very DA to small female dogs and my little dog is inside(i only have 2 dogs) and I dont want her getting hurt but hearing all these remarks makes me feel awful about her being out there.

We have an "apartment" we call it,above our garage,there's no heat but there is a couch and no drafts so when it snows iv been putting her up there.

So,in or out ? Thanks

Shew, I feel so much better,thank you ! It got down to 20 the other night and I did bring her in the laundry room and put the little dog in another room(small dog has severe separation anxiety,so its not easy). 13 ? wow that's awesome!

People are entitled to their opinion when it comes to chaining dogs outside, and having "outside" dogs.

In most cases, my first question for someone with an "outside dog" is why do you have a dog? Most people, like myself, tend to spend most of their down-time within their home, inside. The dog is a part of the family. Yes, there are dogs who do fine outside, there are kennel dogs and working dogs who do not live in the house. But there are risks to having a dog outside. They can get stolen, poisoned, harmed, tangled, escape (depends, but it can happen), have health issues go unnoticed, increased risk of heartworm at parasites, may bark and cause problems with your neighbors, and to tell you the truth I don't like the idea of unsupervised dogs due to all the things that could potentially happen, even if it's only a small chance. I'd rather have outside dogs living in runs with a dog house, not on a chain. I personally would never have a dog on a chain unsupervised, and not living on a chain, that is just me- I am not judging you. I want my dogs inside my home with me. And straw is a good insulator, by the way, don't use things that hold moisture like blankets, and keep in mind that their water buckets can freeze.

She has a kennel I got her but I wont put her in until we get the roof kit for it so she dosent escape. I am home alot and spend most of my time with her actually,if im not at work im outside with my dog or at the store. I volunteer and work with other dogs and I check both dogs(in and out) for problems daily. Teeth,belly,eyes,ears everything.

We go walking twice a day,and now that its cooled down, we usually hike up the mountains once or twice also.

There is a proper way to chain a dog and the problem is some don't and it goes those that do a bad rap. As long as there is adequate housing and water, food and a proper collar, not padlocks or chains like I see on some dogs, it can be very safe. It's as long as there is room to walk and not lay in waste. There are plenty of great owners who properly chain their dogs. As long as you keep your dog safe is what matters to me at least.

i agree, there is a right way and a wrong way to tie out a dog. i personally keep Odin inside with me because of where i live. My neighborhood is not the greatest and i would never leave him in the yard unless i had a very sturdy and well built kennel with a padlock on the door. and even then he would whine like hell. lol.

But Jessie (Circlem) got it right, people on FB dont know !

sounds like it gets pretty chilly where you live. my opinion, as far as mammals go, our dogs don't really have the coat or the fat layer for really low temps. the kennel is good. roof is better. but a small insulated shelter within your kennel would be best. or bring her inside at night.
