During the colder and wetter winter months it is easy for us to keep ourselves warm and dry but what about our pooches? We can pop on an extra layer if we are cold and change into lovely warm and dry clothes if we are wet, our dogs need us to do this for them.
One of the most important things to remember is to dry your dog off throughly and not just after the rain either, your dog can become quite wet walking through grass covered in frost and for many dogs the urge is too great to resist a good roll in the frost! Also a dog covered in snow will become wet too so it is imperative that your pooch is dried off after its winter walk. Always dry behind the front legs well, at the tops of the legs and between the back legs, take extra care with older dogs as they may well be suffering a little from arthritis so require gentle handling but also need drying throughly.
