Iv kept all my working dogs in kennels. a good warm bed up of the floor thats dry and out of the draught will do all but the most thin skinned whippet or imported salukis. I do put my smoth dogs in jackets if they struggle to keep weight on in the very cold winter. I would only ever give heat to a bitch with pups,

lurchers and terreirs are built of sterner stuff than some think mate. :thumbs:

i would keep away from hot waterbottle idea as it might expect the same treatment all the time ,every else what has been said is sound proven advice

Makes no difference either way mate.

 

Edited to add - having a pup in the house might make socialization etc much easier, and some basic training.
