5.Ensure your dog is active while indoors
Although sometimes dogs opt to idle indoors or stay very reluctant to play outside in the cold, it is essential not to force them out but instead offer them plenty of toys that will keep them occupied playing with them.
6.Keep alternating their food when necessary
Remember, your dog isn’t much active during the summer months, and this inactivity can result in your dog gaining more weight. Therefore, it is essential to regulate the food amount for your dog to avoid it gaining excessive weight.
7.Ensure your dog has a good recall
Note that poor recall is mainly caused by the reduced visibility in the snowy or foggy weather condition. Yes, to avoid your dog getting lost, ensure you update their microchip details and your correct contact details.
8.Make your dog visible
Yes, attaching a small light on your dog’s collar can be very important since they can easily be seen even on reduced visibility roads and paths while out on walks.
9.Only leave your dog in an attended car
Remember, the internal car temperature fluctuates according to the surrounding weather condition. For instance, during the winter, the interior car temperature can drop to adverse temperature, so never leave your dog in a car for a long time?
10.Refrain from visiting around frozen rivers and lakes
Ensure your dog is away from frozen water bodies since it is hard to determine how secure the icy water surface is at the moment.
