Keep Your Canine Warm All Winter With These Cold-Weather Essentials for Dogs
There's something to be said for winter days spent with man's best friend—frolicking in the snow, curling up under the blankets, and winter-wonderland walks together can be great bonding experiences. But winter weather can also create discomfort for your dog, in the form of cold temperatures, chapped paws, and less time spent outside.
To help keep your pet comfortable in cold weather (both indoors and outdoors), it's important to invest in some climate-control basics. Dog coats and sweaters, heated pet beds, protective booties and other products can help your four-legged friend make the most of cold weather. Something as simple as a soft pair of socks can help perpetually-cold pooches regulate their temperature, and interactive toys are great for stimulating dogs who long for sunny days spent outdoors.
Check out these ideas for making winter walks more enjoyable, chilly nights a little cozier, and fewer hours of daylight less depressing for your pooch. From organic wool sweaters to protective paw balm, we've rounded up the best cold-weather essentials to help your dog live his best life, even when the forecast calls for flurries.
