Us Labs are pretty tough when it comes to winters. Make sure that skylar's house is wind tight and that his door is not facing the wind, if at all possible under a tree or some other sort of cover. Also make sure there is plenty of hay or straw in his house to keep him warm. If you wanted to be sure he was extra warm and toasty you could build him his own dog house for pretty cheap. You could make his house so that when he walks in, he has to turn a corner so that when he's sleeping in there he is not right in the wind if it happens to be blowing through the opening. Then you could also insulate it with foam or fiberglass insulation, just be sure to cover it with another layer so that he dosn't eat it. (such as some cheap paneling or something). We used to build our dog houses so that they could be outside during the winter months up here in Wisconsin, and they would be fine out there in temperatures under freezing, we would bring them inside if it got below about 20 degrees. I am not sure exactly how cold it gets there in Kentucky butI would think if you had a warm house skylar should be fine out there.
