I go out with them but then come back in and let them stay outside to play. Sometimes I stay out with them. But 'cold' is relative to where you live.

I only got out with them when young. Otherwise I open the door and out they go. They come to the door when ready to come back in or I call when I'm ready.

The last few weeks I've had a young one so I like to make sure they're doing all right with the others. The adults I let out and bring back in when it's time, too.

Yes and I really hate it sometimes when they take forever.

Yea, I do the young ones or new ones. Still do with Axel a lot of times bc he will get into stuff like bricks, tree branches, dig, or whatever else he finds fun. Lol

Especially when you just want to go to bed at night.

Can you tell I was annoyed when I wrote that?  It is so cold and they refused to stay out unless I was out there shivering with them.

Yes. You know they need to go but then they decide it's play time. You can't force a dog to pee.
