I have a female golden she is 10 yrs old and she's mostly outside but now that she is older we bring her in at night and let her be outside during the day.
Well me not being used to not having a dog indoors all the time I would love to have her stay indoors but I can not stand the smell of her when she comes back from outside I try to let her go out just to go potty but even then she smells when she comes back in.
So to keep her from stinking up the whole house I have her leash tied to one leg of the kitchen table and there she stays with some old sheets, she doesn't mind being there but I can tell she wants to be with us when she sees us all in the living room. I want her to sit with me but I do not like the dog smell no matter how much I try.

Baths & the spray on shampoo would work. I agree with the others that it's not an ideal situation for your dog. They are pack animals & need to be with people or other dogs. And goldens are about the sweetest, most loving dogs there are, so it's sad that this poor dog doesn't get the social interaction it deserves. Please do what you can to make her "golden" years more comfortable & loving.

Goldens are smart, so when someone is home, you can have her in with you & let her out when she needs to go. It won't take her long to learn to go to the door to let you know.
