Greetings!  We hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  Just a few tips during these low temperatures:

During the winter season, many dogs feel the cold as much as their owners do, especially when they are not habituated to the cold. Understand your breed's particular susceptibility. Some dog breeds are more prone to the cold than others, while some breeds are adapted extremely well to the cold:

Dogs that are great in the cold include Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies and Chow Chows.[1]Dogs that find it harder include Dobermans keep them inside if possible!,, # , toy dogs, low hair or hairless dogs, and Greyhounds. Any shaven or excessively clipped dog will fall into this category as well because the thick winter coat is a dog's insulation.   Ensure that the bedding is warm and well placed. Bedding is an important part of keeping a dog warm through winter. If your dog sleeps on the ground or somewhere with drafts, place the bed up off the floor. A custom-made bed with cushioned insert, blankets, and old clothing make good, warm bedding.  For old and arthritic dogs, consider using a heated dog bed.[4]  Clean and change bedding regularly to reduce fleas, germs, and mess.
