Any dog no matter the breed should not be left outside on hot summer days that exceed 85 degrees without a nice cool place to relax from the blazing summer sun. This is dangerous for any animal. My daughter has a husky and during the hot summer days when she goes on a walk with the dogs, she always tries to take them to a place that has a stream of water they can go in to cool off and play. If you walk your dog on warmer days you should always take some water with you to give to the dog. Huskys have 3 coats of fur on them and cold weather is ideal for them. Again I would not leave my dog outside in below 0 weather for long periods of time. You should consider yourself when raising a dog. What is the hottest you can take during the summer months being outside and what is the coldest you can take during the winter months? I would not expose my dog to an extreme period of hotness or cold this is not healthy for them.

If the dog has no doghouse set up in the garage over winter, then here's my plan if he were my dog:

If the garage is not drafty and blowing in snow or rain. Then I would say yes, but I would make a really nice large and deep wood box for him to lay in and snuggle up to keep warm in a corner. Nail four posts to each corner and wrap with plastic on the bolt purchased reasonably at Walmart to shield your dog from blasts of cold air when the garage door is opened.


You can make an inexpensive pad of remnant fabric and fit to the size of box. Fill with bags of polyester filling used in pillows and sew closed. Cover over with remnant fleece or fur fabric, so you can wash the surface layer. Drinking water will freeze up, so that will need to be checked frequently during the freezing cold temps.

Keep in mind the age of the dog and if he has any arthritis or other health issues that cold weather can affect him. You might need to use a heat lamp during coldest days and nights so the dog is kept warmer.
