Both our dogs sleep inside, outside our bedroom. A husky and staffy. They always have. I personally would prefer them outside so i wouldnt have to get up in the middle of the night and let them out to wee. If i dont wake up they wee inside and i am sick of cleaning it up. But that said, i couldnt actually bring myself to kick them out as they are part of the family and i love them original.gif

I have a Boxer as well and I wouldn't sleep her outside in a cold climate as Boxers have very short hair and sometimes it can be very thin as well as short. We are in Canberra and she sleeps inside.  I would happily sleep long-haired dogs outside in Canberra.

Any tips for a 5 year old maltese who doesn't like sleeping in her kennel?  As it's starting to get cold I hate the fact that she might be cold sleeping outside and not in the kennel.  She is way too noisy to sleep inside at night and I can't put her in the garage or laundry as she just scratches at the door until she is let out.

I have a 1yr old labrador that has slept outside since he was 5 months old. Like debbiedos dog he has a kennel but doesnt sleep in it. Any ideas on how to get him to sleep in there?
