i often see postings about weather and their dogs.....i can't seem to find myself letting my dogs be out at night during the summer or winter even though i live in AZ. i somehow think it's too cold for them at any season. am i being silly? i would like to leave them out there but i'm not convinced that they won't get cold or freeze. maybe cause i'm always cold even when it's 76 if there is no sun outside. i would like to be convinced that they wouldn't be so that i could allow my dogs to stay out at night some nights. would they need at least a dog house to be left outside? does the type of fur matter such as long hair short hair? i have boxer and poodle but want to ad a small breed in the future.

Again, depending on where you live in AZ. I live in Phoenix and even when it's cold, it isn't cold to me. I'm from Chicago originally. A dog's fur will get thicker, if necessary, to protect them from the cold and shed when it's hot. I prefer to keep my dog outdoors and a doghouse gives them a luxurious choice. SMILE
