Dogs that don’t like the snow

Sunday, December 30, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Most dogs love to run and play in the snow but there are some that really don’t like it and refuse to go. This can be very frustrating for the owner. ┬áThe ice treatment on pavement and sidewalks will irritate your dogs feet. This will add to the problem. If your dog refuses to go out in the snow, I would clear a spot down to the pavement for him. Make sure that there is no snow or ice treatment on the pavement. Buy a pair waterproof dog boots and slip them on his paws. Take him to the spot and hope for the best. You may have to do this several times before he get used to it. ┬áSometimes you may have to take him in to warm up and try again in about five minutes until he gets the message that it’s time for them to go.

Good luck!

Remember, your pets count!
