    Default One in one out ?? Thoughts ??

    Hey all,

    My first stumbling block (of many no doubt) with having 2 big Goofs.

    Mojo has been sleeping inside for the last few months much to the wifes disgust......It was cold you see and i didnt want the big fella to get the man dog flu.
    (Plus he gives better cuddles in bed )

    And Bronx has always slept outside, so there's no way the wifes gunna let him inside. He dosnt seem to mind been out and Mojo in but it's only been a few nights.

    The wife see's this as the perfect time to kick Mojo outside..."ya cant have one in and one out, thats so unfair to Bronx".

    So what do you guys think. Is it unfair ??.....will it cause jealousy or some sort of issue between the dogs ??....will Mojo be put out by been kicked out of his comfy carpeted kingdom??....does anyone else here have one in and one out ??

    I see it as a good way for 'time out' between them but i sure dont want it to cause a issue either.

    Thoughts ???

    Laundry as a compromise?

    I want Mags inside at night, my argument to my reluctant man was she is no use as a guard dog if they come in through the front and she is locked out the back. Might work for you?

    Hi Sean, my friend bought a golden retriever as a pup and he has always slept on his bed. A couple of years ago he rescued a female golden retriever from the pound. She wasn't house trained and my friend was in exactly the same dilemma as you.

    He continued to let his dog sleep in his room (he was 4 years old) and the other one outside. A couple of years have passed now and I think the newer dog sleeps inside but still not in the bedroom. The dogs are fine with it.

    We got Ruby at 4 months old and she'd never been inside. We left her locked in one day as I wasnt sure if she'd jump the fence but she panicked big time and trashed the place! She was frantic by the time we got home. Outside dogs are familiar with outside. It's different now, she sleeps on the bed when she can!!

    I think as long as Bronx has a nice cosy spot, outside is fine. I think Mojo would hate being put outside though, let him stay inside.

    I don't think you'll have any problems with the new dog sleeping outside, that's what a friend of mine did when he got a new dog, old dog stayed inside, new dog outside. Mojo might get a bit upset getting kicked out, there will be people more qualified to answer, but if i was going to kick him out, i'd leave it a few weeks to hopefully make sure Mojo doesn't associate getting kicked out with the arrival of Bronx.

    If the new dog is happy outside I'd leave it that way.

    As to moving your own dog outside, now might be a good time as he will have company - if that's what you/wife want.

    The choice is yours not the dogs.

    Thanks guys.

    I want Mojo to stay in for sure. He's used to it now and so am i. I think i'll just leave things as they are and see what happens.
    Farrview....good idea. I'll tell the misses we now have protection inside and out.

    Oh well if she wants to say that...

    just say well why not house train the new dog. WORKS BOTH WAYS hehehe.

    Mojo will teach new dog how to be housetrained with your help.

    If you do bring him inside just treat him like he is a puppy and take him out every half hour. Or every hour till he gets it.
    He can probably hold his bladder for a fair while so you will just have to learn when he needs to toilet.
    If it was me, and my dad says the same thing. i refuse to let my dog stay outside as i am not really an outside person and rarely go out there. so whats the point of my dog being out there if i wont see her? Besides she loves being with me inside and rarely has accidents anymore.

    I guess it depends if you want to avoid conflict or not.
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    Mojo will take a couple of days to train bronx what would take you longer. To pee outside.

    Id go for both in laundry compromise if you must. Or one in, one out. You got both back covered that way. Neither dog are used to spooning with another. So it not like they are going to miss it.

    Personally, i dont like dogs in a bed i might want to have 'special cuddles' in. Way too much contraceptive effect for my liking. Also, clearly you cannot have both of them up there! And if Bronx gets to be top dog. And Mojo is on the bed. He might put a stop to it for you.

    Kick em both out while you have the chance.

    I'd vote for both inside Tell yourwife that an inside dog can alert you to a fire in the house if the fire alarm fails. Plus the snoring sounds like ocean waves ... just to add a little ambience.
