fibreart Posted January 4, 2014 Report Share Posted January 4, 2014 hi all! I adopted a lovely female BC in march- she was a pure outdoor dog with a super thick winter coat when we got her, very happy to sleep out in -10 in her kennel, and often far too hot when indoors. However, she has been of late indoors about as much as she is outdoors, and though she seemed to shed her summer coat, she has not developed the thick winter coat I would expect, and seems sometimes (not all) a little chilly outside. she does sleep outside and spend the time we are away at work etc outside but i am a bit worried her coat may not develop to the same degree as when she was a fully outdoor dog, and she may get cold. I would say before anyone says I am freezing my dog, that for sure her kennel is super reinforced with carpet walls and good flooring and blankets. I would rather not have her as a house dog as she needs things to stimulate her and loves being in the garden. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
