At least some people take care of their dogs. So easy, even white trash can do it. So what’s everyone else’s excuse? 😉
thats what i need to do for my bulldogg he hates the heat
Why do people insist on keeping their dog outside? Especially in really hot/cold weather? I understand if someone doesn’t want hair all over, or messes in the house…but those can easily be cleaned up. Why get a dog if you’re just going to leave it outside, and ignore it most of the time? Your pets should be treated as part of the family, not some thing to entertain you and your kids…
Some dogs do better outside Zip, especially large breed dogs, which this dog house is obviously for. I do not agree with people that keep their dogs in a dirty kennel outside all day, everyday tho.
some dogs prefer the freedom of being outside i know a cpl of mine do, plus i hate dog poop /pee in my house
I am smarter than a dog and can housetrain them.
If you get a dog just to put in your back yard, that’s lame and annoying for your neighbors. Bored and lonely dogs bark constantly. dogs are social animals and are not happy alone in the back yard. They also need to be walked almost everyday. Back yards do not provide enough exercise or mental stimulation for them to be happy. When you get a dog, you are responsible for the animals well being.
Dogs are happy when they have a life. Backyards are not much of a life for them. Neither is indoor life if they never leave the house and don’t get to go for walks.
Zip, maybe if you think back a little you’ll realize that dogs were once wild animals that can survive on their own completely without the need to be taken care of. They don’t need to be in a house to survive or be happy. Yes, they are social creatures but that doesn’t mean they need to be with you CONSTANTLY.
For an outdoor-only dog, I think my rottie/shepherd has it pretty good! We live on a small farm, but keep the front acre + surrounded by the invisible fence. He’s fixed so he has no real desire to go anywhere else. He has that entire acre of grass to run around and play, he has a pond to romp around in, cats to chase, and for shelter he has an insulated dog house INSIDE an insulated tool shed.
My dog has a job to do, guard the property. He does what he pleases when there is nothing to do, and since we work from home he is often right there with us. He loves to play ball or tug of war with a rope. He chases cats if they run but would never harm them, in fact they are often found nuzzling him or curled up with him in the doghouse. We’ve had litters of kittens born on his pillow or on the roof of his doghouse. He is loose in his acre 24/7. He protects the cats from coyote or brush wolf invasions, there’s easier dinner out there than having to fight off a 150lb dog first! He guards the house against prowlers, visitors he doesn’t know will sit in their cars because he will be right there at the drivers window!
My dog is happy and healthy and very much a part of the family, but he is still an outdoor animal!
Just because we don’t keep him in the house or dress him up at halloween (lame) or get him boots for the winter (Uber Lame) doesn’t mean we neglect our dog! Who the hell are you guys to judge?
That being said, I think Bubba get’s an A+ for the air conditioned dog house, it could have a gate put in it so it cools the house normally and can also cool the doghouse on extremely hot days and not waste a lot of power when its not needed. I don’t think my dog would care too much as he’d just as soon go for a swim in the pond and roll around in the shade of a tree.
