I would like to know how many of you keep their labs inside the home, I would like to, since they are so friendly and they will keep cleaner!
not only as puppies but as adults as well.
I have a small apartment and Oona has lived her whole life indoors.
I can't imagine not having my pup inside with us, she is part of the family after all! ;D. Just know if you do this you will be vacuuming all the time due to the shedding..

I'd hate to have to go outside to visit my buddy. Rowdy is my 3rd one and I wouldn't have one if I had to keep him outside.
Sadie is mainly indoors. We have a kennel out side that we put her in if we leave to go somewhere. I am a stay at home mom so she is inside with me all day during the week unless I need to run errands then she goes outside to her kennel. My neighbor keeps his pup outside in a kennel while they are at work as well, but she is inside when someone is home. Oh, my neighbor's pup is Sadie's sister.
I think you'll find that here, pretty much everybody, including and maybe even especially the field folks, keep their dogs inside at least at night.
As for me, Theo is an indoor dog. To me, it's the best way to develop a relationship. I want my dog to want to be with me all the time.
Inside. Labs do better as inside dogs, wanting to be with people.
Inside. I wouldn't want to own a dog if they couldn't be inside with me. What is the point in owning one otherwise? our dogs are members of our family. I wouldn't put my family out in the backyard (even though that'd be nice sometimes!)

Inside. I wouldn't have got a dog if she couldn't be inside with me. She want to be inside when I'm inside and outside when I'm outside. She want to be where I am and I would say that all labs do.
