I want to get an outdoor dog run/kennel for my pug puppy. He needs more outdoor time and I can't take him out for any length of time because my fibro is really bad with the colder weather. I would get a good size one (maybe 10' by 10' or 5' by 15') and only put him out for maybe 30 minutes a couple times a day. I am just wondering, for when the snow comes, how long can a small dog stay outside? Is 30 minutes too long in the colder weather? Also, DH says we don't need the dog run/kennel because we have a fenced back yard but I am concerned he will get into trouble out there by himself (get stuck under the deck, eat something he shouldn't, dig through by the gate and get out, etc). Who is right? He doesn't want to spend the money on a kennel but I think it's a good investment for years to come.
