Winter and Your Dog

Winter can be a depressing time for us as humans, but what about your dog? Well to be honest if you have a small dog that stays inside most of the time, winter probably doesn’t bother them much. But larger dogs that like to get outside and play may be affected.

Cold weather really doesn’t bother larger dog very much as long as the time they spend outside is limited. The colder it is out the less time you and your dog should spend outside.

Always keep in mind that the salt or snow melt they spread on the sidewalks and roads are not good for dogs. The main thing that is a concern – it dries out the pads of their feet and may cause cracking and bleeding. Always clean your dog’s feet off when they come in from outside to prevent this from happening.
