It's all good. I know dogs better than they know themselves.

Had a lab Shepard mix for 15 years. She preferred to be outside as much as possible. We got her a dog-loo shelter. Her only concession to it was that in the rain she would lay on the ground with her head in it.
She caused a certain amount of chaos her first year but after that was the most reliable dog I'd ever had.

Funny story. When my wife was in grad school in Austin, we lived in an apartment complex and had to keep Monica inside at night. In the morning we'd let her out in the courtyard while we dressed for the day. One morning we came out and discovered that someone must have had a party because the dog had brought about 200 colored plastic cups down and split them all open like little plastic flowers all over our lawn!

She also liked corn on the cob. And wouldn't eat a cheeseburger if it didn't have mustard and onions on it! (not a frequent treat as omg the gas...)

She did not require a leash and even loved the vet!

Feeding dogs pizza, hamburger, spaghetti, and other table scraps with onion can cause Heinz body hemolytic anemia. Onions are toxic to dogs. The toxicity is dose dependent, so the bigger the animal , the more onion need be consumed to cause a toxicity.

As long as your dog is potty trained and isn't known to tear up things/furniture, I think it will be fine.

I don't know!!
Between him and the cats, there could be a party.

I always have 2 or 3 cats hanging outside when I come home!

My 2 yo boxer is crate trained.
She feels out of sorts when it is past bedtime and she is out.
She will not go in by herself, but never gives me problems when I put her there.

My wife just went back to work after having our baby 3 months ago. My dog is a little "off" being home alone all day again - you can tell she got used to someone being around. She should snap back into it in a few weeks though.

We have a 2 yo basenji chihuahua mix that is crate trained. Allowed to be free during the day when we're gone, crate at night. He has a large crate covered with a quilt with a dog bed and water dish inside the crate. Going in the crate is one of his favorite things, it's his home. If we forget at night, he goes there on his own, with the door open. If he's scared (storms, fireworks, etc.) he heads straight to his crate, it's like his security blanket.

This enables us to take him with us to relatives' homes on visits, where he cannot have free run of the house. I will always crate train any dog I own in the future, best thing we ever did.

Our Corgi stays in his office (the upstairs bathroom), because he likes to "keep busy" when we're gone. Our Mutt does this while we're gone.
