If I said to you that I worked with some dogs whose owner makes them live outside, what is your first thought? I know mine is usually dirty, parasite laden dogs who bark at strangers and don’t care much for being petted. That’s because those are the outdoor dogs I grew up around.
Some imagine that an outdoor dog is sad and lonely, constantly hoping for the chance to come inside. Some imagine a dog on a chain whose world is small and unfulfilling. Depending on where one lives, you might think of the shivering, wet dog who has no shelter while its owners are toasty warm inside.
