Dress them in coats & booties | Shorter Days not Shorter Walkies
When you leave the home dress your dog appropriately. We here at Capalaba Produce have many coats for your dog available in store. Whether your dog needs a little bit of extra warmth or protection from the rain, be sure to look out for your four-legged friend.
You can even put booties on their feet to keep them warm and protected from the cold. The pads of your dog’s feet generate heat, which can be lost quite quickly on cold concrete. Your dog may take a while to adjust to walking normally with booties on or may unfortunately just out right hate them.
Dogs which are small, have very short fur or have minimal body fat, will need the extra protection that coats, and booties can provide.
Wait until the day is at its warmest | Shorter Days not Shorter Walkies
On cold days it’s best to walk your dog during the warmest part of the day, so check the weather forecast and determine which part of the day is going to be best to go for a walk.
Talk to your vet | Shorter Days not Shorter Walkies
Every dog is different, so when it comes to yours, who would know better than yourself or your vet?
Your dog’s breed, age and health all play important factors in your dog’s overall well-being and how well they will manage the colder weather, so talk to your vet and see what they suggest for your situation.
Walking your dog during the colder months is not only beneficial for your furry friend but also for your own health. It not only helps to maintain your great summer body but helps fight feelings of loneliness and isolation. Don’t wait any longer! Grab a ball, put on a jacket, leash up your doggo, and embark on a walk today!
