:I would recommend you allow him to walk around outside, for a few minutes at first. Stay very close to him, to keep him from eating things he shouldn't (plastic trash, or Azealea leaves), and so he feels safe, that birds aren't going to get him.

No way!! I tried that once. Only he didn't just walk around, he ran straight for the trees. I had to hack my way (very quickly, I might add) through some brush then get him down from a tree. I was very lucky that he decided to stop for awhile when he was only 5 feet up the tree. What he wanted to eat was not the problem. The problem is that if I let him do as you suggest, I may likely never see him again. I do not have a fenced in yard. I've tried a leash on him before, but he absolutely hated it, and was going crazy trying to get out of it.
