my wolfhound (5-years old male) lives outdoor for all his life in cold weather, rain or snow...and he is maximally happy.

Do you really think ANY dog enjoys outdoor living, especially in Canada? The only exception I can think of is a Husky, but you must provide good shelter against wet/cold/winds etc.....

You are aware that all dogs did originally come from the outdoors, and while you may think its mean, its what they are genetically wired for.... As long as you are putting them in the same climate as they originated, they will do just fine.

Technically, humans used to live outside too. I'd be willing to bet that you don't want to be outside in the cold rain and snow.

Our 3 IW live in our home just as anyone would expect family members to do. That said they do request to go out to lay in the cooler grass all hours of the day or night. These souls require interaction with their family unit almost constantly. If only to sleep at your feet, walk from room to room with you or share a sad t.v. show. They thrive on the attention and affection given them by their bonded humans.,no matter how small or fleeting. THESE ARE DOGS OF ROYALTY., we are the ones who should be thanking the Gods daily that these Gentle Giants share their roofs with us. One of two Owned by 3

We've had two IWs, sequentially. They both like to be with their people at all times. Our current IW will nap in the next room and doesnt like to climb steep stairs so doesn't sleep upstairs with us. Our first IW would always rouse from a nap and follow us if we left the room - every time! She also always slept in our room (and sometimes in bed!)- wait and get a dog your dad falls in love with so you can keep it inside. No tying or chaining outside, either! IWs are the best but are also a big commitment.
