misslesleedavis1 Yes, and in ontario we still have snow on the ground in april my dogs lose their minds if they dont get exercise especially the border collie. If its something stupid like -32 then we will do a super quick run but thats about it

I hope you're planning to move further south than Atlanta. After the winter we had, you won't escape 10 degree weather (or below) here!

AnaleighK12k14 Kona loves the snow. She fetches snowballs and has a grand time. When we come back in she cries to go back out. Plus here in Georgia when it snows we get snowed in for a few days because no one here know how to deal with it, haha. (Not that I know better, I'm a Floridian!). So for her it's her favorite thing plus extra days home with us .

I do use common sense though. When it was 12 degrees we only stayed out an hour and when it was colder than that she only went out to do her business.

Yes I do. But I use common sense too. Bitterly dangerous cold, we either play outside for awhile or we greatly shorten our walking time and distance. We try not to stay out too long in dangerous cold weather.

Bear GSD It was -9 degrees out this morning, but Bear gets even more amped up to play in this cold weather! I did cut his walk short this morning by 20 minutes.

Mister C The only time we don't walk is when its very icy such that there is a high risk of falling down or there is a lightning storm. The dog doesn't care what the weather is doing and with appropriate clothing we can brave just about anything.

Bridget Heidi is 12 and I don't take her out if it is really cold, below 20 degrees. When she was younger, if it was over 12 degrees, we walked.
