Any help would be appreciated. My dog, Lewis is 12years, very active and mostly collie/lab cross, and has for the last 5years had the free run of approx 2 acres together with a comfortable kennel that he would use as and when he wished (with a dog flap). He has always used the kennel at night and if wet. This is or was a well adjusted dog, there is no gate on the drive and the fences are not great but even though there are sheep in fields all around us he does not wander. However he will no longer go into his kennel except for food, he stays out in ALL weathers and whilst I appreciate that he can live outside, I am wondering if he hasn't lost the plot? I would add that he does get taken out by the family & is let in with us in the evening. And indeed occasionally comes to work with me. Just to add that he has been in all night, I've just let him out for breakfast (which he ate in his kennel). Subsequently he is just mooching around outside and it is absolutely tipping down. What can I do?
