    Question outside dog

    I have a few questions about the differences between a inside dog and a outside dog

    So I don't have a dog yet but as were renting(a friend of my family is our landlord so can stay here as long as we want) when I do get one it will need to be an outside dog

    1st is kennel training different to create training as most kennels have a door in them that's always open

    2 when potty training outside is there any major differences

    3 if puppy dose pee in wrong place how do I get rid of the smell so puppy is not attracted back to that place

    anything ells I really need to know about an outside dog vs a inside dog ?

    Well if you get a pup, I would keep it inside intially and then toilet train it for inside.

    Then move it outside when it is slighty older and you wont have to do anything else in regards to toilet training.

    Are you sure that you cannot negotiate on the inside bit? I personally find outside only dogs a bit sad...

    I think if you are a responsible tenant and pay for any damage that might have been done to the house, whether by pets or not, it should not matter to the landlord if your pets are inside. The worst they can do is piddle on the carpet, but carpets can be cleaned or if worst comes to worst replaced.

    But I know some landlords just don't get that... I do think it's worth trying to convince them if you can easily talk to them though.

    When you get the kennel try and place it in an area where it can hear/see human activity, dogs like to be close to what is going on around the place, try and make the kennel in one spot and it's feeding area in one spot, pups like predictability and a routine habit.

    The pup will most likely cry and whimper for a few nights being on its own in the kennel until it gets used to it.

    Toilet training is no different, pups need to go soon after waking up, eating drinking etc, praise the pup when it goes in the spots you want it to.

    Just scrub any accident areas with detergent soon after.
    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    I've only lived in one house where our dogs were outside only. When we got Harley he was inside all the time unless we were at work, we weren't allowed pets inside but we still brought him in anyway and the real estate didn't know any different.

    He had a kennel too and when he was a pup he would find his own way in there, I just put all his blankets in there and a toy. He won't go near it now and hates it though, but I think that is because Bella has claimed it. She would sleep in there with Harley when she was a baby and as she grew she kicked him out.

    Toilet training Bella as an outside only dog was easy, I just left her out there! lol She picked it up on her own and has never had an accident.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Some tenants do do the wrong thing and it was obvious by the damage and smell so it makes it very difficult for the good ones who follow them.
    Luckily dogs do get used to anything pretty well.

    I too would have the pup inside initially. Then outside. I wouldn't be giving huge attention when inside but when you take him/her out so he learns that outside is the most fun.

    I would chuck a treat or two into the kennel then just watch. Pup will go in there after the treat.
    Make a game out of it and when pup is happy to go in there make the treats random till you eventually stop.
    Some dogs do not like enclosed spaces though and I have only had one like that.

    One of my dogs hated the raised bedding I was putting in their shed.
    I put the bed in front of their milk crate of toys inside, chucked some dry cat food into the toys.
    Jodi HAD to climb onto and lie on the bed to get her head into the crate and to the treats.
    I just watched her indecision out of the corner of my eye while I was reading.
    Pretty soon she realised the bed would not bite her and she cautiously tried it.
    Later I did it again..problem solved.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    My Dad's tenant had an outside dog. No doubt the agent said "must be outside".
    The dog wrecked the flyscreens (not totally shredded by badly damaged by claw marks)
    and dug holes in the small yard.
    The entire yard had to be re-turfed as the remaining grass was pretty much dead.

    None of this was the dogs fault. I doubt if it was ever walked and it was not allowed inside
    with the family. The agent meant well but the result of the outside rule was very expensive
    for all concerned.

    Humm. Thats alot to think about we have a sunroom out the back that I can close off b4 u reach the back yard maybe I should start the pup off in there

    I do have outside only agreement I think it sucks but my original agreement was no pet allowed the only reason they said we can have a dog is because their friends of the family and I'm at home alone alot in the day

    What do u thinking of the use of a dog play pen ?
