|You're training your dog to be a whimp.
Put him outside and shut the door.
Our 2 blue heelers absolutely LOVE the snow. They are outdoor dogs, they have invisible fence and respect it. We have a doggy door in an entry door to a small room at the back of our garage. That room is heated comfortably and it's where their food and water, along with a crate (open) and lots of bedding lives.
They come into the house with us in the evening when we get home from work, and get kicked out before we go to bed. Often, one or both will be scratching at the door to go out long before we go to bed. Not to go pee, but to go play in the snow.
