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.

|Galathiel||I would LOVE to walk in the snow. Of course you have to HAVE snow to walk in it. *sigh* We've had cold temps (for Texas), but no real snow around here.|

|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.|

|arycrest||I voted NO WAY! only because we've never had a single snowflake in the 19 years I've lived here and it's seldom too cold to go out during the day.|

We haven't been on a walk in probably 2.5 months.
I have a couple of wimps. It's too cold for Draco and Sin always lifts his paws up.
They run in the yard for about 5 minutes and then they beg me to let them back in.

Yep, we go out in all weather. Nothing to brag about, my dogs love to be outside in the snow. We walk less in the cold rain than we do in just plain cold snow weather though. We have had numerous days this winter when in has been -40 with the windchill (which I understand is also -40F) and we still go out to play in the snow. Some of the dogs need booties to enjoy it at anything colder than -20C, but Eli never gets cold.
If it is snowing and blowing and there is a good layer of snow on the road then I pull out the dogsled and we all get a good workout in. I put those blinky lights on them and the sled and we are good to go.
There has only been a few days where I turned around halfway down the road - one day it was -40 with the wind chill and severe snow squalls, my eye balls just could not stand it.
