Winter Tips For Mans Best Friend

CUTEDOGSTUFFEDMany dog owners don’t give their dogs enough exercise during the winter months. They could become more destructive during this time because they need to use their energy. It is important that you continue to exercise your dog during the colder months. Here are some tips that can keep your dog warm in winter.

  • Keep your dogs nails trimmed so it gives him more traction in the snow and ice.
  • If your dog is fairly small and older with arthritis, carry him to his spot to do his business. It is difficult for older dogs in cold, snowy weather. Many times they won’t want to go out at all. Be sensitive to your older dog and make him as comfortable as possible.
  • Put a dog coat on if your dog has short hair.
  • If your dog has trouble walking in ice and snow, consider buying dog boots to make life a bit easier for him. The rock salt on sidewalks often burns your dog’s  paws and boots will certainly alleviate this problem.
  • If your dog has walked on salted snow and does not have boots, clean off his paws as soon as you get home.
  • Brush your dog more often in winter to keep the natural oils distributed on his skin. A dogs skin will dry out fast in colder weather.

Always give him some exercise. He may really enjoy running and fetching in the snow!

Remember, your pets count!
