Winter is here! 7 Tips to Keep Your Dog Warm This Winter!
Dec 21, 2016
Winter is the most warm-hearted season of them all. Sometimes we forget how cold it really is outside. Families and furbabies get together to celebrate love and being together! When we go out for a stroll, our furbabies must be kept cozy. Here are seven tips on how to keep your dog comfy warm this winter:
1.Their hair is their best friend
During the summer your dog needs constant grooming because it's too hot. It is a different story when winter is coming!! We have to make sure our furbabies stay warm and don't get sick. If your dog can grow long hair, let it grow. Their extra fur will keep them safe from being chilly.
2. Keep bath time short
Giving your dog a bath is a lot of fun! During these holidays wait until his or her hair completely dries out before going outside. Their hair can dry slower in the winter time. Imagine walking with your hair wet outside; you can get sick so much faster! Catching a cold is never exciting.
3. Careful with your furbaby's paws
Some dogs have long hair between their paws. Make sure that you cut the extra hair, the snow and ice can get stuck and hurt their little poofy paws. If not, it will make it really uncomfortable for them to walk in the snow.
4. Wipe your furbabies paws
There is a lot of salt and other chemicals on the floor during winter time. These can all hurt your dog's paws; please wash them carefully when you come back home. Your doggie will be free from all the strange chemicals.
5. Use boots
The best way to avoid the paw problems mentioned is to get snow boots or little balloons. Your dog can be more comfortable walking in the snow and ice! The first time they wear the boots might make them look really funny, but they will be happy the floor doesn't hurt their paws anymore.
6. Dress warm
If you have a small dog or a short-haired dog especially, it will make a big difference to get them a coat. Just like us we need coats and sweaters to stay warm in the freezing winter. Of course, big dogs and long-haired dogs like staying stylish with jackets too. Extra coziness never hurts!
7. Lots of love
There's nothing more exciting and peaceful than being surrounded by your family's love. Keep your doggie close to you this holiday and give them a lot of hugs and kisses! They always return all your affection.
When you are away, you can see if your doggie spends most of their time with their favorite blanket or tries to escape upstairs to your warm bed. Having a pet camera helps watch over your dog, making sure everything is ok while you are away. Furbo Dog Camera gives pawrents around the world peace of mind.
You and your dog do everything together — from enjoying long walks on sunny days and playing in the park to curling up together on the couch when the weather isn't so cooperative, you're two peas in a pod. You can't imagine life without the friendly panting, tail-wagging and begging of your best friend and baby, so it's hard to picture spending a vacation without him or her. Who will feed her? Will your caregiver give him enough cuddles? Is your dog better off at home, out in the backyard, boarded at a kennel or left with a friend or family member?
Can all dogs swim? Because we call a specific swimming stroke the “doggy paddle,” and plenty of furry pups do seem to take to the water without ever needing swimming lessons, many people assume all dogs are good swimmers — but this is a common, and potentially dangerous, myth. While there are plenty of dogs that swim, some struggle with water, and some are even at risk of drowning.
