i suppose it is possible, but not ideal you would have to have a special kennel built with heating, you not allowed to have an out door kennel without it i don't think.
well i know thats what you need at boarding and breeding kennels.

Dawn your lucky our snow has started again. and it looks like it might be hear for a while.

Ben too loves being outside but I have been so nervous about leaving him outside especially when its cold.
But reading the posts above I think I can let him stay outside for a few minutes and he does have very thick long hair.

If Ben want's to be outside, let him. Once he wants you to hold him, goes to the door, cry's ect. Then bring him in, but dogs can really very in there cold tolerance. I'd just let him choose his limits.

Our Ben doesn't like being outside by himself. Someone has to be out with him. He's definitely an indoor dog. :rolleyes:

Cocoa loves being outside, but I don't think he likes being out there alone. If you go inside to get something while you are outside with him, he goes over to the door & waits for you to come back out :)

i dont compleatly agree with you. the poodle was origonaly bred as a french gun dog, and the cocker is a gun dog. most gundog breeds wre kept in out door kennels, so it is posible. however i would not like to have my girls live in an out door kennle prmanently. i work at a boarding kennle so i see a veriety of breeds who react differently to the tempriture.

I don't quite understand Jacob. If a litter is born inside or out, how does it affect there adult form as far as temperature tolerance? What adaptation does a lab have?

Teddy is an indoor dog, but loves the outdoors - getting out there whenever he can. As he's quite young, at the moment he's usually supervised.
