    My opinion is go for something cheap at the moment in bedding for the kennel as pups can destroy things, they are good at that, lol.
    After the pup isn't chewing everything in sight, then is the time to go more expensive if you want to.

    I think I had some foam and old blankets over it in their outside kennel in the pen when they were young. Easy to replace.

    Later on when older and I had an old lounge in their shed they ripped that to shreds easily. It looked like snow in the dog yard.

    I thought the pup might chew though it
    Do u think an old pillow would be fine for a gsd pup if I don't care about the clean up

    This is for the pee problem.

    I would train a puppy to be happy in the kennel - same as a crate almost. Ie I'd give it yummy treats for being in the kennel.

    Potty training outside - it depends if it matters where the dog goes or you have a preference. Essentially you want to be there every time the dog goes to the toilet. If location is really important keep the puppy on lead, carry it to where you want it to go, wait for it to go, and praise it lots when it goes in the right place.

    Bottom line - never scold a dog or act angry if it pees in the wrong place. All it will learn is to hide before it pees.

    Sorry no tips on outside dogs but just a warning.My neighbour had a GSD puppy and it was left outside from a very young age and was sadly stolen.They have another one now and that is kept inside until it gets bigger.

    I must admit it was a bit of a shock coming to Oz and seeing outside dogs even if they were allowed in and just put out when the owners go out.My friend was just as surprised at my dogs being inside on my bed when I went out!

    My staffy cross though is a bit of a pest and when he was out the back he thought it would be a good idea to stand on the shed roof and look at the two dogs next door barking and throwing themselves at the fence at him.He was just looking a bit confused and was wagging his tail at them!So it is just as well I like him inside.

    I rent and have been in my house for 3years so far, initially it was a no pets lease, but I asked out of the blue if we could get a dog, as my children asked alot over the years. Luckily for me, my real estate and land lords said yes, I have always been a pretty good tennant. Oskar is predominantly an inside dog, but plays outside a lot, plus is toilet trained for outside. He sleeps inside. Our back yard is partitioned off as we don't like the idea of him being around the front much. I am afraid he will be stolen. When we fix the fencing up, he will be left outside when we are out, and be back inside when we are home. Dogs are social creatures so if your dog can be allowed inside when you get it, that would be good for everyone. Oskar hasnt really destroyed any part of the yard or house. There are holes in the yard, but those things are easily fixed.
