  1. How to care for my dog during winter?

    Dog Health
    It is not a rocket science considering the fact, that during the winter we should care about our doggy more. Our Pet is exposed to additional risks connected with cold. ** Dog’s pads We have to remember that dog’s pads are the main point of contact with the freezed surface and salt being...
  2. extra warm winter coat for little male dog

    Dog Gear and Supplies
    I'm looking for a very warm, preferably wool, winter coat for a small male dog. He is about 10-15lbs, we think maybe a chihuahua, terrier, dachshund mix or something like that. I would like a coat with a design similar to these because the coats with a belly type strap tend to touch is little...
  3. Do I need to try and put a coat on Zoey?

    General Dog Discussion
    So winter is approaching, and I'm starting to worry that Zoey might actually need a coat. She's a 2 year old Staffy, possible cross. She's NEVER acted cold out on a walk; no trembling, shivering, stopping etc. She's scared of the rain heh, but has never been bothered by the cold. My major...

    Dog Food

  7. Concerned about winter - mostly just venting

    General Dog Discussion
    So I got Cobber back when I thought I knew something about dogs and puppies, but now know that I really didn't actually know anything :) My personal situation is that I live on my own, am 54, have a bum foot (broke it a couple years ago and it didn't heal right), and all of that is why I...
  8. Cold Weather Exercise Ideas

    Dog Training and Behavior
    With most of us dealing with cold weather, snow, and ice, I find it hard to find ways to exercise Snickers and get her the physical and mental stimulation she needs. I was wondering what others do during the cold winter months when walks are not possible. All of the sidewalks are covered with...
