Best Outdoor Dogs

If you’re thinking about getting an outdoor dog, be sure to take your area’s climate and the dog’s coat into consideration. The Great Pyrenees, for example, has a thick coat to make cold weather more tolerable. Regardless of the outdoor dog you choose, provide him with plenty of fresh water, warmth in the winter and shade in the summer. Browse our list of outdoor dog breeds below to find the right one for you.
