During the winter season, many dogs feel the cold as much as their owners do, especially dogs that are not habituated to the cold, or that have specific cold weather traits. Keeping your dog warm through the winter months is important to maintaining top health, and it won't take you much extra effort to ensure winter coziness for your canine pal. Here's how. Understand your breeds particular susceptibility. Some dog breeds are more prone to the cold than others, while some breeds are adapted extremely well to the cold:
  • Dogs that are great in the cold include Alaskan malamutes, Siberian huskies and chow chows.
  • Dogs that find it harder include Dobermans, toy dogs, low hair or hairless dogs, and greyhounds. Any shaven or excessively clipped dog will fall into this category as well because the thick winter coat is a dog's insulation.

Provide appropriate shelter. It is optimal if your dog can remain indoors throughout winter, going outside for exercising and answering nature's call only. This will ensure that your dog doesn't get cold while you're out or asleep. Young puppies should not be left outside as they don't have the ability of older dogs to keep themselves warm outside.

  • If you have an outside dog (such as a sled dog), ensure that he has access to a shelter and bedding inside the shelter. Fresh straw provides a suitable layer of insulation against the cold of the ground for an outside shelter; be sure to change it regularly though.
  • An outdoor dog shelter should have a sloped roof, insulation and heating, especially for very cold climate locations. For rainy winters, ensure that the entrance way is protected so that rain cannot get into the shelter.
  • Bring all outdoor dogs inside if the cold spell becomes exceptionally cold and long; even the barn is warmer than an outdoor dog shelter.

Ensure that the bedding is warm and well placed. Bedding is an important part of keeping a dog warm through winter. If your dog sleeps on the ground or somewhere with drafts, place the bed up off the floor. A custom-made bed with cushioned insert, blankets, and old clothing make good, warm bedding.
