Hello, I'm seeking advice, words of personal experience...anything anybody can offer on the topic of keeping a dog primarily outside in a well insulated kennel for 2 years. I'll try to keep this as short as possible, sorry. My living situation over the next two years will not allow me to have a dog inside. Specifically because my dog, has had serious separation anxiety issues and had been extremely destructive and costly with damage. To spare details, my relationship is on the line. My boy is a 2 year old pit mix who started off life in a bad situation, ended up in a shelter, went to two homes, then returned to shelter. I truly believe his issues were purely trust and not knowing if he had a place to stay for real or not. Now that he is attaching himself to me and appears trusting, the destruction has completely stopped. However, my partner has extreme anxiety and doesn't want him in the newly built house we will be living in as an investment, and then selling in two years. I attempted to rehome him with my best friend, however, she has cats...and we found out he is too interested in cats. Is it possible to keep him in an outdoor kennel for two years? And then transition him back into the home? He would be in the attached garage on extreme temp days and I plan to have him in doggy day care during the working week days. Please know that I'm absolutely heart broken and sick. Rehoming a pitbull is not easy and I refuse to dump him at a shelter where as a pit, he doesn't stand much of a chance. Has anybody ever kept an outside dog? Is it possible? Do you think it's possible to reintroduce him to being inside in two years? I know people have harsh things to say about keeping a dog outside. I'm just so lost and trying to come up with any ideas I can. I live a little southwest of the northern Virginia area. Any advice or personal experience stories are greatly appreciated, please!! Thank you!!
