Keeping Dogs Comfortobale Outside in Bad Weather

If your dog is too big to bring inside you need to think about bad weather. This includes both storms and cold weather so if your dog is not house trained and can simply not be put in you need to think about how you can make everything comfortable for him outside for when bad weather arrives. This is especially a problem during winter as that is when cold can cause problems. Let us take a look at some tips that you can do in order to keep your dog comfortable during bad weather.

First of all you need to think about where your dog will go for shelter. The truth is that you decide this for him as the dog will actually go where he is going to be warm. In this case it is plain to see why a dog house is the best solution possible although old sheds can also provide suitable shelter. We recommend that you put blankets in the dog house or shelter. You can also purchase dog clothes or even use shirts and modify them so that your dog can wear them. Flannels are highly recommended.

Hygiene is always important with any pet so you need to make sure that the blankets and dog clothes are dry and clean. Placing a trap over the roof of the doghouse in order to stop cold air is also a very good idea. You must also pay attention to the distance the dog has to go through in order to reach food and water. Pay attention to the small details and all should be perfect for both yourself and your dog!
