Keep Your Dog Inside
Even though your dog will still need to go outside for bathroom breaks while recovering from being spayed or neutered, these outside trips need to be supervised. A dog recovering from surgery can still irritate the incision or get the area dirty out in the yard. If at all possible, your dog should go outside leashed during the recovery process. Otherwise, your dog should be in the house, especially if nobody is at home to provide supervision. Any dog can get into too much trouble outside when left to their own devices, including escaping from the yard or getting injured, which makes staying indoors all the more important.
