Tips For Caring for Your Dog During Winter

Winter can be a fun time for your furry friend, playing in the snow and getting some quality fresh air. However, wintry weather does come with its cons. In this article, we are going to be sharing some of our top tips for keeping your dog safe and well during the winter season. So, without further ado, let’s begin! 

Wrap Up Warm 

Make sure you wrap your dog up nicely and warmly before going on a walk. So, make sure that you invest in durable and waterproof jumpers and coats for your dog, as well as dog booties/wellies. Yes, these are the real things! These are becoming increasingly popular, and they eliminate the chance of your dog getting snow, ice, salt, and grit in their paws which can be quite painful. So, investing in some dog wellies you can protect their paws and keep them warm while walking outdoors. 

Check For Snow, Ice, Salt, And Grit After Walks 

Once you have returned home from your dog walk, spend a couple of minutes inspecting their paws and give them a clean to ensure that there is no snow, ice, salt, or grit stuck as this can be a painful thing for dogs to go through. This is also a great opportunity to warm your furry companion up once they are out of the cold. 

Find Ways to Keep Your Dog Active Inside as Well as Outside 

There are so many ways that you can keep your four-legged friend occupied and active indoors this winter. Some dogs are very reluctant and will not want to go outdoors during the cold weather so having a backup option of an indoor playtime will keep them healthy. Make sure you have lots of toys, blankets, and even a mini agility course that can keep their brains buzzing!
