    Occy, I'm fairly sure there is nothing toxic in the garage. All of the poisons (except for the big cans of diesel, etc) are underneath the kitchen sink. Him being in the garage was only a concern because of his chewing.

    Where do you keep all the car stuff then? That's all toxic.. A good but expensive solution is a cubby house

    You can always tie him up.
    Buy him a kennel, put it in the garage with a 2-3 metre lead. Tie him up at the very last minute and let him off as soon as possible in the morning. Considering it will be night, he'll be sleeping the majority of the time.

    Does he have a coat?? If you can not take him inside and he had a kennel outside and you are worried about him being cold why not just give him a coat to keep him walm?? You can get coats that he will find it difficult to get out of, admittedly we make our own so I cant say off the top of my head where the best place to get them is, but I have some for my Cresty. They are full body coats with legs and all so even if he was the kind of dog to try to ditch it, he couldnt!

    Occy, all the car stuff is currently in the back of my step father's ute, since we've been having some car troubles with it (admittedly, we don't have much car stuff to begin with xD).

    Myf, I'd prefer not to tie him up, but only because I don't really like tieing him up unless I have to. Our last option was to tie him up.

    Ash, I hadn't thought of a coat >.< We did have one for him before, but he got out of it and destroyed it. I hadn't thought to find one that is a little more escape-proof. I'll have a look around

    even if hair is a problem we make ones out of a meshy sort of material that stops so mych hair getting around. I have to make one for my BC so she can travel in the car with my Father who is very alergic. But yes, a walm coat that is a little harder to get out of would be a good idea

    Ash, I'll be going to have a look around at the pet stores around the area. I know a few of them stock coats.

    Clea, a pen might work if I can find one high enough to keep him in. I've seen Leo jump up to ledges that are my head height o.O I think he might be part gazelle lol. I'll have a look for a coat first, and if that doesn't work, see what kind of pens are around

    good luck
    BTW it is a good idea to get one that has a "tuck" in the rear of the rug so it sits down over their tail and ones with a chest strap that tucks under into the belly strap are harder to get off, also you can easily put rear leg straps on to which is good

    How cold does it get in Qland?
    My pups will be outside most of winter till I am sure they are toilet trained, non destructive.
    We have made a pen. It has a snug dog box in it. Would this be an option in the back yard?
    We used star posts and heavy wire.
    As the house on the farm has no fencing the pen (15ft by about 23ft) is great too to contain them if we are away and they have room to romp and play.
