Just curious more than anything.. Been reading through several posts, and began to wonder what everyone prefers and why? Also if anyone thinks a kenneled dog would preform better than a house dog or vice versa? I understand pro trainers would obviously kennel for the simple fact of not wanting a bunch of dogs in the house.. Mainly wondering if anyone that has done both noticed a difference in drive and or willingness to work? Logically it would make sense to me that a kenneled dog might be a little more "excited" about getting to work since they don't have "free" roam in a house or yard.
I personally keep mine in the house, crate trained of course. She is my third retriever, all of which kept in the house and have never had a "desire" to work issue myself.
