Our dogs are mostly indoor dogs but we have one Bernese Mt dog who loves it outside, even in the winter. Now I think he would stay out longer but I make sure he comes in to get the snowballs out of his feet when I think he has been out long enough. He then comes in and sleeps by the wood stove and hangs out.\n \nHere is my question. A few years ago when he was little we got him a dog house, one made for large breeds. My kids could go in it! It was huge! He never liked it, we couldn't even get him to go in it. We got it for him not because we want him outside but because we know how much he liked it, we thought a place to lay down out there would be more comfortable. But he was still allowed to come and go as much as he wanted to. He just never took to it. So, we gave it to a family with a new dog and they wanted one.\n \nIs this common with large breed dogs? That maybe he felt to big to go inside? I have never had a large breed until the last few years and I got to wondering about it awhile back.
