Hopefully, dog owners walking their dogs in the cold winter weather will want to consider some precautions to help their pets to stay comfortable and enjoy that walk!
- Examine your dog's paws for bits of salt, pebbles and other debris that may be picked up during the walk and gently clean by wiping with wet cloth or towel.
- If you have a small dog, you may indeed want to consider having your dog wear a sweater. Small dogs tend to be more sensitive to the cold, which leaves them more exposed to colds and viruses. Keep them warm when you take them out!
- Beware of extremely low temperatures if you own a dog whose fur is rather short and/or sparse. Shorter walks are recommended, and a sweater wouldn't be such a bad idea.
To you dog's comfort........
Life is hard
