He has a very nice 2 stage kennel outside. He has a 5x15 inside kennel with a nice big insulated dog house with electric heat in the ceiling for added warmth during the winters and a dog bed to sleep on and a 30x60 outside run to stretch his legs lol. I have been fighting the same battle over and over about having him in the house but no luck. But once I finish the basement (man cave) he will be allowed down there only while im down there so its a start! But I hope I make the right decision getting another pup ir not due to he is not a pheasant dog strictly duck dog due to his tempermant.
Maybe instead of getting the new pup, you spend the time training your current dog to be a better indoor dog. Can you train it so it won't piss on the furniture? Hard to blame the wife for being POed (:wink:) about that. Pitching in with the vacuuming of dog hair and dog debris might go a long way, too,
She grew up with no pets in the house, I grew up with 5 dogs in the house! She just doesn't understand the bond that it makes :-( but I didn't want horses at home and low and behold we have 3. Hayburners at home lol. I guess im just too good of a husband lol!
At some point you will have to man up and let your beautiful wife know your dog is comin in.
we just got a new pup and I have convinced my wife to keep him inside. So far it is going well. Like said previously help with the vacuuming of the hair. Hell our pup even curls up on my wifes pillow with her in bed now. Good Luck
Have you looked into placing her as a "started wife"? Maybe some kind of take over payments type arrangement? Life is too short.
Sometimes drastic measures are barely enough regards
Get a "belly band" and put it on him any time he is in the house. They can't mark if they are wearing one.
You need a case of beer and a lawn chair, sit in the kennel with the dog while the wife is home ...if you wake up in the kennel, you lost the argument.
