|Wild Wolf||You're lucky! At least you don't have to face blizzards and high winds, extremely low visibility and below -30 freezing temps.. not even safe for the dog at that point.. LOL!|

teach your dogs not to gate dash or door dash. when it's raining
wear a rain coat and boots or buy some water proof shoes/boots.
keep a towel or 2 near the front door and back door. lay some towels
on the floor in front of the front door and back door. make a trail
with the towels on the floor. get rain coats for the dogs.
i love walking my dog in the woods immediately after it stops
raining. i don't think 30 to 50 degrees, raining is that bad.

|Damianblade||30-50 degrees doesnt seem bad at all, considering the past week here in the mountains the temperature has reached -40 celcius.. not thats COLD! and unfortuantely since it has been that cold I haven't been able to take her out for a decent walk outside other then doing her business, since we both would freeze. But I am lucky enough to work at a large hotel, so I have been bringing her up to the hotel a couple times to walk her around inside.|

|Baillif||One of the things I was always taught to do was to make the dog go out to potty before food obedience training or any kind of play. That way when you take them out they tend to rush through the potty stuff immediately so they can get to the fun part. You can get em to take care of all that crap in 20 seconds and get back inside on those crap days.|

|Galathiel||I live in East Texas and it's been rainy here as well .. with a 50 degree change in temp within the week to boot. I keep a pair of waterproof boots, hoodie and gloves by the door, along with a towel to dry off my pup's feet. And a flashlight. I hate the time change. It's dark when we go out in the morning AND the evening now.|

Haha I would love to have weather like that right now! It's been 3 degrees out all week and rather windy. I wear long underwear and if I find myself getting cold, I jog for a bit. Works every time.
I really want some of those hybrid boots from LL Bean that are half rubber and half leather with fleece lining. My hiking boots just aren't warm enough anymore.

For rain == towels, lots of towels & a tile floor. My two, when I was in Arkansas, loved being rubbed down - we made a game out of it.
Now in Wyoming, there wasn't enough rain to worry about. In winter, I often walked at 2 am because that was when the wind died down. I was bundled up in long underwear, sweat pants and wind pants with fleece socks & lambswool lined boots. Top was more long underwear, a turtle neck, a sweatshirt, a down vest, a down coat, thinsulite lined fleece gloves, fleece face mask, fleece gaiter, fleece headband. If it was daylight and the wind was blowing and it was 10 below or lower, I'd wear ski goggles to protect my eyes. Mascara wouldn't have helped this outfit any! It wasn't pretty but I never got frostbite and SW Wyoming winters can be brutal.
