So, some of you may know of the problems I've been having with my dog. For those who don't, my husband and I separated and he kept our 1 year old Alaskan Malamute. Hubby is having real trouble coping with the dog (Jaz) because being a typical Mal she's a handful and a half. I would love to take her but i'm living with my parents at the moment and space is a bit of an issue. My folks also have an old deerhound who doesn't like Jaz, so they have to be kept apart.
My question is this: could I keep Jaz outside during the day when I'm not at home?
My folks have a large garden which although it's unfenced, I could pay for that to be done. They have two large sheds in the garden, and my mum has suggested that we convert one as a huge kennel for Jazzy during the day when I'm at work. Has anybody done this sort of thing? I'm just wondering what I'd need to do to the shed to make sure Jaz would be safe and secure. Since she's a mal, she has a great coat for surviving outdoors, so if it got cold it wouldn't be a problem. I'm thinking I could get a window or two put into the shed so that we could make sure she had ventilation during the summer, but I'm concerned that i might need to do more.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
