For many of us, the cold weather is reaching its peak this time of year. Time to pull down the sweaters, put on the gloves and get those shovels ready! Now is also the time to make sure your dog is prepared for the chilly days ahead. To help, DogWatch has put together a list of 5 cold weather safety tips for dog owners.
At DogWatch HQ in Natick, Massachusetts, we are preparing for a major blizzard. In addition to stocking our fridges and getting our shovels ready, we are also preparing our pets for the storm. We’ve already covered cold weather safety tips and paw care on the blog. Today, we’ve collected some fun indoor games for your dog, to help him channel his pent-up energy and exercise his brain and body even when he’s snowed in. Ready, set, PLAY!
A dog’s paws are tough – they run over rocks, skate along the ice, stand up to the summer heat and dig through sand and dirt. These paw pads see a lot during a dog’s lifetime, so do your canine best buddy a favor. Check out our seasonal guide to paw health, and help him keep those feet running safely and comfortably all year ’round!
Happy New Year, DogTails readers! 2014 was a busy year for us on the blog. We covered popular news stories about dogs, brought you training and health tips for every season, tackled some of the challenges of life with puppy, and (hopefully) made you laugh with photos and videos of dogs being dogs. 2015 looks to an even more exiting year for us at DogWatch, but before we get there, we wanted to review some of our favorite blog posts from the past year. Happy reading!
