how do ur dogs handle the cold?

for those of u in northern states or states that get cold, how do ur dogs handle the cold? its been getting down to the low 30's around here and tyson wouldnt have it any other way. during the summer he was HOT all the time, panting, and being lazy. now that it has cooled down i can exercise him more which means no more spaz attacks.

Re: how do ur dogs handle the cold?

It hasn't been cold for more than a few days here. Otto seems thrilled, this is his first fall and he loves chasing leaves. I won't leave them out for more than 15 minutes though, they don't have much coat yet.

Well it has been cold up here in Canada the last few days and Jesse loves it and gets more energy, ie went from 3 walks a day to 4 now cause the cold makes him go zoom zoom zoom.

Same here! Shane loves it as well, especially when it starts to snow he loves to chase it and romp around with his ball!

Risa loves the snow, but not the cold. I have to bundle her up for long periods outside. She's not fortunate enough to be a double-coated GSD. Just a single-coated mixed breed with no body fat.

As soon as TN got into the 50's and 60's Megga started getting hyped up more.

Re: how do ur dogs handle the cold?

Mine LOVE the cold and the snow, so do I. They are much more energetic in the winter, especially my cat. The heat is too much for them here.

Re: how do ur dogs handle the cold?

as of December 2007 my boy was 6 months old. this is his 2nd winter. last winter he enjoyed the snow. when it became very cold i cut our walks back. i let our dogs out to go to the bathroom and then back inside. i was worried about there feet in the snow if we went for a long walk. i guess they need boots.

Re: how do ur dogs handle the cold?

I let my dogs out in the snow to use "the facilities" and before I know it, they are either rolling in the snow or laying down in it, taking it easy. I think they love it.
