according to English Grammar, should that sentence be that there are three different sorts dogs at their home, and they often takes them to outside for walking after dinner?

See example:

There are three different sorts dogs at her home, and she often takes them to outside for walking after dinner.

There are three different sorts of dogs at her home, and she often takes them for a walk after dinner.

  • sorts OF dogs
  • you don't go TO outside, you just go outside
  • 'for walking' should be 'for a walk'
  • I would suggest that going for a walk is considered to be an outdoors activity, therefore there's no need to mention it.

Yes, I agree with Han and Di. I would also say that, although 'sorts' would be understood, it's more common to refer to different 'kinds' or 'breeds' of dog. I'm not sure why that is, but it's certainly the case in UK English.
