I agree with Swampcollie as well. Don't take it to personal linktrek while most people on this site have full time inside dogs many of whom sleep in bed with them not everyone does. I have pretty bad allergies so Daisy isn't allowed in our room and is only in the house when we are home. She sleeps in her crate in our garage at night. I installed a doggie door and during the day she has run of my yard and woods and most days I come home she is frolicking about chasing squirrels birds or anything else that moves. Sometimes I think she prefers her crate. We don't shut the door on the crate but often times at night around bedtime she'll actually go to the door that leads to the garage so she can get to her crate. We've all got different systems that work for us. My garage never gets below 40 degrees or so in the dead of winter. Of course she'll be outside when it's 10 degrees out playing in the snow. Actually I worry more about the heat. When it gets real hot in the summer we've brought her inside if the garage is over 80 or so.
