Although shelter is needed for dog such as dog houses, dogs should be outdoor pets. It is much cleaner to keep dogs on the outdoors. Much damage can be done to a house, if dogs are living on the inside of the house. Dogs can urinate and have bowel movements on the inside of a house and make it smell really bad. Dogs can cause fleas and ticks on the inside of a house and that can be uncomfortable if those fleas and ticks get on humans. Dogs can shed fur on everything in the house and that can be messy. Dogs can chew on furniture and other things on the inside of the house and ruin property for people.

It can be much trouble to let dogs out of the house so that they can urinate and do number two. Outside dogs can get fresh air and exercise so that they will be healthier. Dogs can spread germs on the inside of a house and make humans sick. It can be too hot or too cold for dogs on the inside of a house and that can make them sick. Dogs can track mud and dirt on the inside of a house and make a mess for people to clean up. People will have less work to do if they keep dogs on the outside of the house.

Dogs have fur so that they can live on the outside of a house. Dogs were really meant to live outdoors because of the physical traits that they possess. Dogs like to dig in the dirt and sniff around outdoors. Dogs can play much better on the outdoors than indoors. Dogs can be good guard dogs, if they stay on the outside of the house. Dogs bark and keep intruders away,and no one would want dogs barking and making noise on the inside of the house. Dogs can keep people up at night if they are trying to sleep by jumping in the bed. Dogs like to be on the outside so that they can see what is going on in the yard.

Humans and dogs should not be around each other all of the time and each need their own space. Dogs can be loving but I would not want to share my house with dogs. It is more fun to go outside and play with a dog that it is to have a dog in the house. Petting and playing with a dog outdoors can give people exercise that they need also. Doing outdoor activities with a dog is more rewarding that having them live indoors. Dogs have became indoor pets more so in recent times, but I still prefer that dogs live in the outdoors.
