Japanese Spitz sleeping outside needs company

Japanese Spitz is a social animal. Like humans, they don’t thrive if they spend too much time alone. Even introverts sometimes need company. In other words, not all Japanese Spitz need the same company. Some Japanese Spitz is independent so they can sleep outside. They make friends in their own way. Others are happy with other species, such as the watchdog and the sheep they will spend their lives with.

Japanese Spitz sleeping outside needs protection

Humans live indoors for protection. Walls and roofs protect us from natural enemies. They protect us from the heat and cold. They provide shelter for us. Of course, the Japanese Spitz has insulated double fur and teeth, which can be used as a weapon, but the Japanese Spitz needs to be safe. The minimum is a solid barrier that keeps wildlife away and a well-insulated house where they can always reach.

Because I work with buyers every day, I hear a lot of people tell me that they are looking for a yard for their dogs to play in. Do they really think their Japanese Spitz will be entertaining themselves and Japanese Spitz won’t need training or walking? Some Japanese Spitz amuses themselves in the yard. But most Japanese Spitz, if they stay outside, will eventually find themselves standing outside begging to be put back. All Japanese Spitz (like humans) have to think. Just because they’re outside doesn’t mean they’re doing it.

They find each other, their humans, and the environment around them very exciting. Buy a Japanese Spitz.
