If you’ve opted for weather-resistant materials, you can place it outside in your garden (for example, next to the front gate to welcome your guests, by a tree, next to some flowers, on the side of the main path, or in the middle of the garden if the statue is meant to look as if the dog were running or playing)

Your patio is another clever spot, and you can always place your large life-size dog statue right next to the front door
