My Rottweiler just can't bring him self to stay out all night. He gives us this look like I am a big boy & i'm not scared of the dark. Then about 2-3 hrs later he is crying at the door to be let back in. Last night there was a little thunder & lighting He ran back into the house and jumped right into bed with my boyfriend lol
Personally I see no reason to make a dog sleep outside?! Why do you insist your dog be alone all night? Dogs don't do well being isolated from their human pack, it can create behavior problems and you don't need that with a Rotti!!!!
First of all before anyone thinks I am a bad mom My little boy wants to sleep outside we put them out before we go to bed when we go to let them back in he will not come. Then he gives me the look "I am a big boy" I even try to give him treats to come back in the house. Then we close the door and if he dose not come to it we go to bed then get up & try again. He has never spent 1 night outside alone without me. Even when we go camping he sleeps in our tent. I just found it funny that he tries so hard to sleep out side but he can not bring him self to do it. I leave the light on for him and I get up and check on him through out the night because I hate him out there. But he thinks that is where he wants to be I guess...till he hears a sound then he comes running.
Thats so funny he tries to act like a big guy. Mine does the same thing, it takes forever to get him back in the house. ONCE we get him back in and tell him to go to bed, he walk so slow into our bedroom.....
