Our dogs all live in our home, indoors. The dogs are part of the family, many of them have free run of the house and many sleep in our room with us. We also have 8 cats all rescued and 2 rescued aspins in the house, The 2 rooms we call "kennel" are actually just rooms in our house with bathing, drying, grooming areas.
Our kennel areas are airconditioned 24/7.
Below is a video of our main kennel area. We have another area for newly whelped puppies, and puppies being raised for the show ring.
Below is our Maltese area, we ONLY pen our dogs to sleep, they are out the rest of the day running around and exercising. The only dogs penned whole are those who are in season, so we do not have accidents.
Maltese unlike Shih Tzu have to be penned to sleep or you will never get any sleep.
As you can see they are really pissed as I was supposed to let them out as soon as I got in but I was busy filming.
