Winterfun with your dog

Grab the leash and get out in the snow!

In some regions of the U.S. we have the most beautiful snow landscapes ever. Most dogs love the snow and enjoy rolling, walking, running and pulling a sled through the snow. Winter can be a time of great fun or great distress for your dog.  I have always owned dogs that love the cold and playing in the snow.  However, even with breeds bred for colder climates, with coats bred to repel wet and insulate the body, I have to prepare them for winter.  Not all breeds are made for snow and feel discomfort. With some planning, your dog will not have to suffer through the cold. If you don’t know about your breed, ask your vet.
