Trying to come up with solutions to the million trips out side after midnight as our neighborhood has been having break in issues and such. All of my dogs are outsided trained and during the day when everyone is awake enough to keep a good eye on them. At night is a totally different story. None of them sleep with me anymore at night (traitors ) and sleep with either my mom or one of my siblings. My mom is a night owl and is usually up and takes them out but is getting worried with all the news about break ins and people walking around at night. So after this wordy explination my question is do you think it will confuse them if they are gated in a small area with their beds and a pad for night time. I'd love to be able to crate them but don't have enough crates for them all to have their own. TIA for you advice.
