There was a time when I didn't have collars on my Hav's in the house or yard, but then I thought if they got out or if we had an earthquake and had to leave the house what would we or someone grab them by?
Of all the dogs we have had over the years (we are on our seventh) we have always kept collars on them and never had any problems. (theren are break away collars available)
Another thing you have to keep in mind about letting your dogs out at night is that skunks can squeeze and dig under the smallest places. Our two Aussies were sprayed once and then about a month ago one got in our yard at night and was sitting in the corner when I let Sophie and Gabe out. Thankfully, I had started to leash them at night
Sophie saw the skunk first and started barking, which made it run across the yard with it's tail staright up! I was so relieved that it didn't spray.. Now I not only leash them, I use a flashlight to check out the yard first!
