My dog cant live inside

Iv lived in a guest house behind my house, So taz can stay inside with me and sleeps in his crate inside. But I have to move into the main house and my mom will not let me have my dog inside. What should i do! Fence up an area for him outside and get a dog house? Can dobremans survive outside?
( there is not way to change my moms mind )

Where do you live? Dobermans do not do well in weather extremes so if you live somewhere with significant seasonal changes, Taz probably won't be too happy about it. Dobes are also velcro dogs and need to be with their people and have a lot of interaction with them. So hopefully if he's spending all of his time outside, you should be out there with him for a good chunk of it. He will definitely need a dog house to shelter him from the elements. Why doesn't she want him in the house?

Short answer NO. Dobes don't have the coats to withstand either cold or heat. Furthermore, they need to be with their people, you will likely have behaviorial and temperament problems with putting them outside.

I think it would be more compassionate to rehome your dog via a rescue. Hopefully to a home that will allow you contact with him every now and then... you dont want your dog to suffer just because you can't bear to let him go...

They can survive, with proper shelter, but they sure cannot thrive.

You love your dog, why make him miserable?

Love him enough to rehome him thru a proper rescue, if there truly is no way to keep him as an inside dog with you.

OUr neighbor has a dog that he keeps outside during the day, but his mother lets him bring him in to sleep in his room at night. Couldyou do that? Then when you get home from school you could walk him, run with him, play with him?

If not, perhaps a rescue/rehome might be the best option for the guy, they need LOTS of love and attention.

Also, maybe ifyou got him training your mother would not mind him being inside more?

I know my girl loves to go in and out. On weekends, she loves to laze about outdoors and when she wants my company, she comes to let me know.

Taz, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't your dog less than six months old?
Please consider any other options before making him an outside dog. This is just not the best thing to do for him. If you absolutely can not keep him in the house, he really should be rehomed. How far away is the time you will be on your own and can take full responsibilty for this dog and yourself and not subject to your mother's rules? There are alot of people who can help you, so just ask if you need it........but again.....your dog is too young to even consider leaving him outside.

My dog was in the same problem, but i showed my mom that he was potty train and everything and she let me keep him inside the house, but my dobe spends most of his time outside, we have a door where he could come in and out whenever he wants and he loves being outside, except when hes tired he just comes inside and sleeps

I think the responsible thing to do is rehome the dog. Once you've achieved your independence then you can do what you want responsibly.

Why did she let you get the puppy in the first place? Did you all not research the breed and know this would be a problem? Shame on your mother for not being more responsible as it will be the puppy who will pay for this mishap. I would think it best for the puppy to be rehomed through a rescue so it will go to a responsible owner and not be continuously rehomed.


What would I do without them?

If you r pup has been use to sleeping in a crate next to you at night where he can see you that is what the pup is use too.Now that he will have to sleep outside not being able to see you he may start doing allot of barking and howling.It may not be up to you if neighbors complain he is barking all night you may get a ticket or worse.

because dobermans do not have the coat to live outside.. they also are extremely close to there humans and do not do well alone !!

German Shepherds coat and a dobermans coat is not the same...
GSD can live outside but due to their short coat doberman is not suitable for outdoor living. That's what's wrong!!

Did I miss why you can't stay where you are and continue doing what he's used to? If you have to move and leave him outdoors, then I would say rehoming him is the kindest thing you can do for him.

How old are you Taz? Did you not speak to your mum before you got the dog?
Can't you get your own place where you can have as many dogs as you like?
