For those of us that live in colder climates, make sure to keep a close eye on your dogs when taking them outside. Things like dog boots and coats, while to some are silly, could bring great comfort to your dog and prevent them from freezing. Also, when letting dogs out into the backyard, also keep an eye on how long they remain out there. Not every dog is like a wolf, and some will freeze within minutes if it’s cold enough, much like we as humans would–though we can put on layers. No one wants their dogs to freeze, so be wary!
