Most of us can’t be at home with our pets all day, and we often need to leave them outside–even when it is cold out. Here is a tip to make sure your pet is comfortable outside in the winter months:
If you must keep your pet outdoors, consider this: Would a fur coat alone (even if it is faux mink) keep you warm against the elements? No? Well, your pet’s fur coat isn’t enough protection for your pet during winter, either. Be a pal and provide your dog with a warm, dry, and draft free shelter outside; the shelter should also comply with any state laws that apply.
