People look forward to winter because it is the period where they can have different kinds of fun with friends and family. Snow fun can only be had and enjoyed at the winter time of the year. The dog is ‘man’s best friend’ and it is also a part of the family, so it is important to think of ways to have fun with your dog as you plan the fun activities for yourself, your friends, and your family.

However, before you take your dog out in the snow, take the following into consideration:

  • Smaller dogs are closer to the ground and they have fewer fat reserves to conserve their body heat, therefore they get cold faster than bigger dogs. The bigger your dog, the more it can cope and play for a long time in cold weather.

  • Some dog breeds are resistant to cold, so if you check your dog’s coat and discover it has a double-coat, then your dog is a cold-resistant breed. Lucky dog! Lucky you!

  • If your dog is short haired, buy it a sweater to give it more protection from cold.

  • Fun in the snow is not for you and your dog if your dog is aged. You should always keep your old dog warm at all times.

  • Snow can get stuck in between your dog’s pads, causing discomfort and cuts to your dog. If you plan on playing with your dog in the snow for a long time, consider ways to protect their feet such as booties.

Hiking

If you enjoy going on a long walk, taking your dog with you will not be a bad idea. However, buy your dog booties to protect their paws. Also, make sure your dog does not get in contact with frozen water.

Snowball Fights

Cross Country Skiing

If you have a dog that likes to run, then cross-country skiing will be a good way to have fun with it in the snow.

Skijoring

Skijoring is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog or a motor vehicle; however, people prefer dogs for skijoring. The dogs provide power by running and pulling, and the skier guides them with their voice instructions. Dogs used for skijoring are dogs that have the required strength, body weight, speed, size, endurance, and energy. These are the reasons why skijoring can only be done with big dogs.

A walk through the snow-covered street

You and your dog can enjoy outdoor fun in a blanket of white snow covering the yards and trees. Don’t skip taking photos of your puppy in the snow!

A game of fetch

Dogs love playing and fetch is one of the best ideas to have fun with your dog especially in the snow. It will be a lot of fun for both of you.

Adopting a dog is undeniably one of the most rewarding transformations which will turn the tide in your life. Canines are the most endearing of all animal species yet to embrace human lives. Owning a dog changes lives in more ways than one. This data speaks for itself which says that over 46.3 million households are proud owners of the furry friend. Similarly your house will be filled with joy in welcoming this latest addition to your family.

As always, there are certain ground rules that you need to observe while adopting a dog and these five tips will erase all doubts you harbor on raising these affectionate canines in your household.

1) Adopting a dog may come without the usual pup tantrums and playful puppies tugging at your heart. Adopting a dog could also be less irksome, but don’t count on it. Because pups can be trained and brought to your style of doing things though you could get an earful for lost shoes, neighbors’ complaints in the beginning. Nevermind, adopting a grown up dog will cause less troubles but it will be short on compatibility which is hard- pressed for the dog as it has lost out on the training part.

2) Dogs are man’s best companion. It is a lifetime of sharing and giving and your dog demands all the attention he can get without ruffling a few feathers at home. All this should not happen at the cost of your job and job changes.

3) Walking the dogs should be undertaken on a daily basis and dogs are not accessories that can be dumped as and when you feel. They have to be regarded as a family member and lots of care and attention is their birth-right. Regular visits to the Vet is mandatory and you need to shoulder this responsibility as well. Older dogs need to be taken to the Vet care a few times at least every year.

4) Dogs need cleaning and bathing regularly which is not too much to ask for. They need to be taken to pet parlours and mobile pet grooming services that are mushrooming in and around the vicinity. The grooming includes nail trimming, shampooing, conditioning and blow drying. Experienced groomers could come home for a session with the dog to brush the dog’s coat off fleas and germs.

5) Dogs cost the earth which means you need to be quite well placed financially and ready to shell out money. A visit to the Vet alone could put you back by a few hundred dollars. This asks for a sound financial health in the long run.

Dogs are fun and frolic though, adopting one is not without its share of responsibilities and might well burn a hole in one’s pocket. But all the same, dogs are the most beloved animal and adopting one will bring loads of cheer and sunshine into your life.

Trail running or running off-road such as going down mountain slopes to get into shape is a good start to burn those extra calories. What’s more better is running with your favorite pooch in tow. Trail running can become more enjoyable and less strenuous having your dog as your favorite jogging buddy.

Pros and Cons:

But it’s always better to set out on your jogging regiment keeping certain do’s and don’ts related to the dog in mind. For instance, it’s always better to start hitting the trail with your pup but not before having consulted a doctor. A very sound piece of advice for joggers and sprinters is to take the pup running only once he attains six months of age and never before. For certain breed of dogs the starting age could vary from one to two years. This is recommended so as to prevent damage to the dog’s bones and joints in formative years. In the same fashion, continuous running can cause lots of unwarranted damage to older dogs who get tired easily and need to preserve their stamina for short sprints. They could easily fall prey to hip dysplasia, joint pain or a stressed out heart.

Trail Running Basics:

If you are three months into marathon running, you be extra cautious with your dog before setting out on a 10 miler. Build up distance over time and notch up incremental gains in easy steps. Chart out a running itinerary that offers both walking and running and keep a strict vigil on your dog’s stamina. Look out for tell-tale signs such as limping, excessive panting and slowing down along the route.

It would be a whole lot better if you stick to a plan while running with your dog on that favorite jogging strip of yours. The reason dogs are to be scrutinized thoroughly before embarking on a cross-country of this magnitude is that they tend to get overweight and suffer from complications just as overweight people do. So the marathon serves a dual purpose of removing the body flab of dogs and getting yourself in shape too. Just walking does not cut it any more and rigorous training entails some serious running out in the middle for both the dog and you, lest the dog becomes a trip liability, sniffing and snorting all the way through. But an exception to this statement is the difficulty in making overweight dogs run until they shed some extra kilos.

Walking the dog is very much advisable because dogs have to carry the excess weight on their legs with legs being most vulnerable part of the body. Until the dog loses some flab, walking will be very helpful.

Some precautions such as having secure laces on your shoes has to be heeded to help prevent you from falling headlong over yourself because the dog just veers to the left and right, stops to pee and stops all of a sudden to smell the tree nectars. All this could prove to be disastrous.

Wrapping Up:

Adding a multi-purpose leash to the dogs purchased from a wholesale pet supplies distributor before running is mandatory and as a thumb-rule do remember to hydrate the dog, especially in summer.

Walking a dog is a fun thing to do and it seems like an activity that anyone that can hold a leash can do without having to take lessons in dog walking. However, as strange as they may sound, there are some mistakes people make when walking their dogs. They are mistakes that anybody can make regardless of their age, size, height, and location.

Here are six common dog walking mistakes you are making and how to avoid them:

Disregarding Safety Hazards

When you walk your dog, it is very important to be mindful of anything that could harm you and anything that could harm your dog. Some of the things that can be dangerous to you and your dog as you go for a walk are cars passing, broken bottles, wet or slippery floors, sharp or pointed objects, spilled chemicals, water bodies, and electrical connections. To avoid any form of harm, be mindful of everything around you and your dog; move your dog away from anything that could harm it; and put booties on their paws.

Using The Wrong Leash

One of the reasons why people like to use a retractable leash or a long leash while walking their dogs is to give their dogs a lot of freedom to walk around them and to make sure they do not bump into their dogs. This seem like a good idea, but it is not advisable. The reason is that it is difficult to control a dog using a retractable or long leash. When you do not have a good control of your dog while walking them, they can run off when they see an animal they would like to chase and run into danger.

Approaching Unknown Dogs

Some dogs can get hostile with each other, especially when they are meeting each other for the first time. Also, some dogs can attack you if they do not know you. Therefore, it is advisable to be wary of unknown dogs when you approach them without your dog and when you approach them with your dog. Ensure the situation is safe before you let yourself or your dog get close to another dog.

Stopping For Stubborn Dogs

Some dogs, especially smaller dogs are generally more stubborn than bigger dogs when you take them for a walk. Stubborn dogs move haphazardly and frequently stop while you walk them, making it difficult for you to control them and difficult for you to enjoy walking your pet. Instead of stopping intermittently, take a handful of kibble with you and use it to motivate them to continue walking.

Ignoring Pet Behavior

It is never a good idea to ignore any changes in the behavior of your pet. Changes in the behavior of dogs could be a warning sign that they are sick, injured, or around danger.

Not Rewarding Your Dog

Rewarding your dog with treats during and after a walk will make your dog look forward to the next time you both will go out for a walk.
