Do dogs like the snow? Get out those boots and dog coats.

dog-in-snowWell here we are about a week before Christmas and near blizzard conditions are expected in the North East. In fact, the snow should start falling any time now and not stop until tomorrow. How do our furry little friends like going out in the snow?  If you own a small dog, it is important to keep them bundled.  Try to find a long legged dog coat to keep the snow from clinging to their legs. The most important thing to remember while walking them is keep them moving. Some dogs love to run and play in the snow and after it has fallen, taking them to a park covered with snow could be very good exercise for both you and your dog. A word of caution, we are expecting blizzard conditions tonight  so take your dog outside before the heavy snow starts and the winds kick up. Make the walk brief and productive. Oh, get out the salt and snow shovels, you’ll need them tomorrow if you are on the east coast!
