10 Cold Weather Safety Tips for Pets

1. Know your dog’s limits

  • Certain dogs are more sensitive to the cold than others. It is important to adjust the length of time that short-coated, thin, elderly, and very young dogs are outside because they get cold more quickly. A great option for dogs who enjoy being outside is to purchase a sweater or coat for them to stay warm. Hypothermia and frostbite cause major risks to dogs – a great rule of thumb to follow is if it’s too cold for you, then it’s most likely too cold for your dog!
