Keeping Your Dog Warm, Calm, & Cozy During Winter
Winter has taken over and it is very important to keep our furry best friends warm. Dogs rely on the external environment to keep them warm. It can become difficult for dogs during winter months with walks in below-freezing temperatures, snowdrifts along fences, and coming home with cold wet paws. With some thought, preparation, and effort you can make sure your dog remains warm, calm, and comfortable even during the worst of weather.
Investing In A Heated Dog House
One of the best investments you can make is purchasing a heated dog house for your furry friend. You may be thinking, “Well my dog has been doing just fine all of these years with no house” or “My backyard provides enough shelter for my pup.” Yes, some dogs are lucky enough to have backyards that are big enough to provide proper shelter from the winter elements but most are not so fortunate.
You should consider purchasing a heated doghouse if your dog is outside for extended periods of time, or if your dog sleeps outside and/or your dog’s living space does not provide enough shelter from wind, snow, or rain.
Insulated and heated dog houses are great ways to help care of your dogs during cold seasons. Dogs can’t sweat as humans do, so they rely on other ways to keep warm, such as panting. While it may not be the same thing as sweating, this method is still pretty efficient. However, there are some breeds that will shiver even if their body temperature doesn’t drop which makes them more susceptible to infections while very young dogs (6 weeks -3 months) aren’t able to regulate their own temperatures at all.
A heated dog house guarantees lovely warmth during winters without risking any health problems for your pets. Warmed by electricity, these types of houses contain an internal heater and an electrical cord for warming the area. It can be nice during those chilling days when it snows really hard and everything outside looks like a winter wonderland! Plus heated dog bed is usually made with insulated walls so they can help keep your home’s heating costs down.
Self-warming or heated dog bed keeps your dog warm and prevents them from feeling too cold while sleeping. These beds help prevent your furry friends from freezing their paws off if they get up during the night and need to go outside for a potty break. Choose from different sizes and styles that are sure to fit any space your home might have.
Keeping pups calm and cozy
If your pup is having a bad day and petting it doesn’t seem to calm him down then a comfy calming dog bed can be just what you need! Its calming effect comes from its dark den-like structure that keeps dogs feeling secure and happy. They are usually made with material that helps to soothe your dogs while they curl up inside of it. It can be a great place for dogs to cuddle together if you have two or more furry friends, but many owners like them for their one pooch as well! If your dog has anxiety, this is probably the best product on the market to keep him calm and find some peace of mind during high-stress times such as fireworks or storms.
In conclusion, dogs can absolutely live through the winter! If your pup loves hanging out in the outdoors, investing in a heated dog house is probably best for them to relax on the deck or front porch while you’re cooking dinner. If they spend a lot of time indoors during the winter months, invest in a dog heating pad. Dogs love to cuddle and always want to be as close as possible to humans.
