They love to lay in the sunshine comin thru the window, and every once in a while I will take them out weather permitting. In this situation that close to the road, WOULD NOT GO THERE.

My dogs love it outside and i am not about to take something they love to do the most away. They whine when they want outside their not lay around kind of chi's so if they wanna go outside by all means they will go outside. Not to be rude of sort.

I agree. I think dogs need the mental and physical stimulation of being outside. The smells, the noises, the fresh air is good for them. I believe that buying some pens would really be your best option to keep them safe AND let them play.

I agree, I think they seem outside time. It stimulates the brain and helps the dogs o be happy and healthy. Then pen or long run sounds like a fantastic idea!

Everything needs fresh air & sunshine as much as possible. Why couldn't you put a little fence up. It doesn't have to be tall. I built a 2 foot fence around my front yard. All it cost me was the paint & my animals & children are safe from the road.

I personally would buy a lead that you can let them run on but you can control where they go.
We live in an apartment and honestly I would never let Jaxx off of his leash because you can't control elements like other dogs running up out of nowhere or vehicles that could easily hit a small dog without even seeing them.
Our apartment complex has a pet park for dogs to run free in but I don't let Jaxx in it because he can get through the opening in the gate.
Jaxx gets to run around off the leash but in a controlled environment when we take him to local parks that have baseball fields and such that are fenced in where we know that he is not going to run into traffic or anything else where he could get hurt.
We have found various places around town that is open to the public that is fenced in where we can take him. This means he might not get to run around free every day but we take him a lot and if we don't take him he can get a lot of exercise running on his leash on long walks everyday.

I made a 20 foot leash out of window blind cord. Very light. Got a small clip and made a handle too. Bonnie loves it when she goes out. I am at the back end of a small street and have a large side yard. Unfortunately my other two have learned how to go underneath that fence! So their time off leash came to an abupt end. I also have a double exercise pen for them, but they don't even want to go out, unless they are off leash. Oh well, I ask them and they run away if I have their leash and harness in my hand.!

I was going to suggest an xpen or something like that. No way would I let my dogs off leash so close to the road.... good luck in finding something!
