How to Keep Your Dog Warm in the Winter

Monday, December 14th, 2015 at 6:25 pm

When the chilly Lincoln, Ne weather hits, it is always tempting to stay

home, snuggle under a blanket, and drink some hot cocoa. But do not assume your dog never feels cold just because he has fur. There are steps you can take to keep him warm and happy too.

Provide A Suitable Bed

You would not

want to nap on a cold floor, would you? Give Fido the same courtesy by placing a bed in an area where he likes to rest. Make sure the bed is at least three inches off the floor. This will help prevent drafts.  A trip to your cialis generique local pet store or a quick search online will yield dozens of pet bed options. There is bound to be a bed that suits your tastes and household budget.

Keep Him Indoors and Keep Outdoor Excursions Short

When the time comes to let Fido do

his business outside, do not walk away and come back later. This is dangerous for his health and general well-being. Keep an eye on him and exercise caution. If you do not have a backyard or prefer to take him on walks, make it

quick. If you’re miserable, Fido is too.

Invest In A Sweater or Jacket

If the inside of your home tends to feel like a freezer, a sweater or jacket can help Fido feel safe and

warm. Look for something that has a waterproof nylon covering for any outside adventures.

Do not forget to talk to your A Pause for Paws pet sitter about additional options. With his or her years of experience, he or she should be able to help you in your quest to keep Fido toasty.
