Ok boys ive got a bit of a dilema in my mind over getting a dog or not. I rent my house and my landlord has agreed that i can have a dog as long as it is housed outside. I live next door to the fella so there is no way i can pull the wool over his eyes with regard to where the dog is kept. I have a decent sized garden and hardstanding to put up a kennel and run but no way of putting any electricity in it for any heating. Remembering this is Scotland would it be cruel to expect it to be out at night 365 days of the year. The dog will likely get the run of the garden and be allowed in the house (on the sly ) through the day and walks/training time will not be an issue. Any dog ive had was in the house. I have decided on a lab but the housing issue is giving me doubts. Any thoughts?
