Winter Tips for Dogs

28/02/2018

As the Beast from the East rolls into Scotland, we've put together a few top tips to help you keep your dog content in the cold. 

  • Keep walks and play sessions short and frequent, especially as it dips below freezing.
  • Check for ice or grit stuck between your pets toes - give them a quick clean after a walk.
  • Dogs can dehydrate just as easily when it's cold out - check their water bowl isn't frozen over!
  • Consider boots for extra paw protection, and a sweater for those with short coats.
  • Keep an eye on your furry friend and make sure they're happy - if they're cold, come back inside.
