Learn How to Make Sure Your Pup Stays Warm in Cold Weather

While we may be moving into Spring already, the weather, especially in California, is just starting to hit its cold peak. Our four legged family members might be covered in fur but while that gives them some protection, they still freeze just like us. Here are some tips to make sure Fido stays warm:

1. Bring them inside!! While some dogs are built for freezing temperatures, your Chihuahua sure isn’t. Leaving a dog like that out in the cold winter months at night is actually considered neglect. Huskies on the other hand will definitely survive and some actually love it and would prefer to be outside. So if your dog isn’t acclimated to cold climates naturally, they need to be inside, no exceptions.

2. For those whose dogs do stay outside whether it’s to protect livestock or whatever other reason, shelter is needed no matter the temperature but especially in the cold. They need a way to protect themselves from the element and keep the heat inside. Especially during rainy weather, a kennel with plastic strips is essential.

3. Again, if your dog HAS to be outside, give them the option of being raised off the ground as the ground can suck up a lot of heat. This can be any from a kuranda bed or wooden pallet with blankets.

4. Our favorite thing in the world: doggie jackets! Yes, we all love to dress up our pets but sometimes, there’s actually a benefit to it. During colder weather, putting them in a nice, knit jacket or puffer jacket could really help keep their body temperature up, especially for the little ones who get cold easily. Also, adding booties for winter walks in the snow also prevents burns from salt and antifreeze! (It helps that it's absolutely adorable as well)
