Agreed with alll of the above, but how is keeping a dog outside all night abuse?Dogs are NOT outside pets. Dogs can suffer terribly from seperation anxiety, and keeping a dog outside all night it nothing short of abuse. Not only will the dog suffer, but it will become very detached and you risk aggression problems and a psychologically injured dog. Think of a dog like having a baby. Its about the same amount of work and they have many of the same requirements and needs. Would you keep a baby in a dog house?
