Outside or Inside

I just got a 7 week old beautiful baby girl. I was planning on her being an outside only dog. But she is just too cute. Should I let her in the house as well or just keep her out side. I have two other small dogs that do come inside.

Pup
by: Donna

Your pup should have been with its mother until 8 weeks. Every day counts with its mom for those 8 weeks. They learn so much from their moms about handling themselves with other dogs.

Make sure you socialize the heck out of your pup for the next 7 weeks. Have many many people come in and handle your pup and play with it.

That said, puppy can be outside with a sheltered dog house to come and go as he pleases during the day in a well-fenced yard. Make sure she always has fresh water.

Puppy needs to come and go as she pleases in and out of the house.

Ours is an inside dog
by: Nashville

Our quirky rescue loves being inside. I can't imagine him sleeping outside. He's just a super dog to have around.

I think it depends on your situation.

We've had an outside pyr, because he loved being outside. The current one is an indoor dog.

If you planned for her to be an outside dog, ask yourself why. If you can imagine when she is an 80-100 pound dog who sheds ALL the time and can reach onto your kitchen cabinets, and you still feel you will think she is too cute to be outside, start housebreaking! But if that thought is causing you to shudder, fence your yard, make her a warm, dry shelter, and put her out NOW. Much better that you do that then cause a one or two year old dog to go to a rescue because she was once cute, but now a messy burden you can't handle.
