Dogs are sociable creatures and do want to spend time with their owners. Frequent attention and exercise does help a dog adjust to his area. Also, make sure the dog has a comfortable, dry doghouse and bedding. Also, make sure your dog has toys to chew and play with outside.

Some dogs are indoor dogs because of their people or their aversion to changing temperatures. You can use positive associations with outside like only giving them treats or affection outside.

First I would stay outside for a while with it. Then I would go into the house for a small amount of time, and increase both as the days go on. She needs to know that it is okay for her to be outside. Get her favorite toy .

You do this by increasing his time outdoors little by little and rewarding that good behavior with a chew toy, bone, food.

The best way to keep your dog happy is lots of exercise and attention. You could try a Kong dog toy for short outside stays. Your dog should sleep inside.

Dogs yearn for indoor companionship just as any human member of your family would. If you are not prepared to allow your dog to share your home, consider surrendering it to a family that is willing to spend the time and energy it takes to properly care for a pet.

Hello, the dog is a group living animal. A cat can live alone - but a dog needs company. There are many breeds ( Husky or other sledge dogs) which you should never leave alone. Why did you buy a dog? Not for company?
