Getting Your Yard Dog-Ready For The Fall & Winter

by Gayla on July 7, 2014

If you and your dog live in a four seasons region it is important to carefully plan your indoor and outdoor setup to ensure the safety and comfort of your dog. Summer is a great time to plan and purchase dog containment systems. The better, milder weather of fall often motivates dogs to expand their boundaries and frequently get in trouble by wondering beyond your property and finding it hard to find their way back. With cooler evenings the risk of dog hypothermia increases. Another risk associated with dogs straying too far from their home, particularly in wooded areas is the risk of perishing in the jaws of predators such as mountain lions and bears.

Outdoor Shelter or Access to Indoor Shelter

With temperatures falling the priorities for your dog safety change. While you still need to make sure they have a shady spot to rest and water you now also have to provide indoor warm shelter for the evenings or harsh weather.

 

Proper Tagging

If you have a gifted and talented dog who is known to be a escape artist the increased number of outdoor critters such as bunnies and squirrels create a compounded problem with their chase instinct. Make sure they are properly tagged or chipped. This will equip others to help your dog find their way back home

 

Weather Appropriate Outfits

Dog clothes are not necessarily a fashion statement or evidence of a spoiled hound. If your dog participates in outdoor activities such as hiking and hunting and they have a smooth coat or had a recent haircut consider using a coat We use and recommend the three-season sport coat.
