The farm dog is getting ready to become a house dog, and I could use some tips for keeping a large dog in the house. She's been house trained by someone else, but she's had the run of the farm for a little over two years, so she may have forgotten. She'll have a doghouse and tie out in the back yard. We're looking into fencing part of the yard, but it will take awhile to get done. In the house she'll have a bed and a crate. All of my friends with house dogs have dogs under 20 pounds. Are big dogs really that much different? Any tips for keeping a big dog happy inside? She'll rarely be by herself since DH and I don't work the same hours. When we're out together, she'll be crated. If we have to be gone for more than a few hours, she'll go to "grandma" who has a large, fenced yard. She's a 65 pound Alaskan husky, in case that matters.
