I understand the "out of sight, out of mind" tendencies, but this is not a sign of a responsible pet owner. It's up to the owner to make sure that a pet that prefers to be outside gets the same amount of love and attention and inspection as any other dog. I do also recommend bringing them in frequently to remind them that they are "part of". I should add that my spitz is housetrained, etc, so there will never be a reason for me to prefer her outside rather than in. (Her house manners are impeccable). It's simply her own preference to be outside most of the time.
