Do you leave your dog alone in the yard day and night?

That is abusive, because dogs are social and need daily companionship, exercise, mental stimulation, hugs, fun games, and praises.

I agree... Growing up I wasn't allowed to have pets in the house, so yeah our dog stayed in the yard during the day and the garage at night. But every time I was home alone I would let the doggie inside :)

[@889684,Carazaa] Family had work, I had school. At least I took her for hikes every day.

God no my pugs are spoiled lovely creatures who sit on my lap every night I’m home , they get walked every evening and feed twice daily. Bought to the vets when needed and once a year for their boosters . It costs me a little fortune but I do love them.

That is so great to see people loving their animals! Very cute! [@373155,Killroy59]

The hairy man is outside in the colder months. He has an 800 sq.ft. run and an indoor/outdoor doghouse. He gets loved on but prefers to be outside.

Hell no he barely leaves my side even if I put him out he'll howl to come back. Not about to start a city dog choir

[@438734,KittenPaws] I'm with my dog all the time except at work.

She is my best friend and quite accustomed to the air conditioning, cushy bed etc.

[@423488,curiosi]Wonderful!

No. She's alone in my room till I get off of work.
She's alone in the yard for a few minutes each morning because she likes to watch kids go to school. I don't think that's fun, myself, so I go back to bed. To each their own. 🤷‍♀️

I wholeheartedly agree and I feel sorry for my mom's dog. I'm thinking of calling animal services on her because talking to her hasn't helped.

[@711208,DamnStraight] You are the only voice that poor dog has.
SW User
[@423488,curiosi] True. I guess I should do the right thing.

No. It's entirely too hot around here in the summer; plus, she's accustomed to the A/C and cool tile floor after a few minutes outside.
