If you are lucky enough, or, depending on your outlook, unlucky enough, to live in a cold weather state, then these pictures of pups romping through the snow may look like your typical winter.
These dogs are running, jumping and flying through the air, just loving the cold weather! I think it’s pretty obvious that they are having so much fun!
What types of outdoor activities do you like to do with your dog in winter?
Need some ideas? Here are some suggestions!
Fun Activities To Do With Your Dog In The Snow
- Playing Fetch
- Build a snow fort to play in
- Build a snow man and a snow dog
Keep in mind:
Dogs with lean frames and short hair, such as Greyhounds and Chihuahuas do not tolerate cold weather as well as breeds that have full, longer coats.
If your dog has short hair and tends to get cold when the weather dips, just make sure to put a sweater or coat on your pooch if you are going to be in the cold for any length of time.
I have 2 small dogs that hate sweaters, coats, and booties. So when the weather gets really cold, you won’t see them outside for anything besides ultra speedy, bathroom breaks.
Breeds That Do Better In Cold Weather
Here are some Dog Breeds Best Suited To Cold Weather.
- Alaskan Malamute
- American Eskimo
- Australian Shepherd
- Border Collie
- Welsh Corgi
- Chow Chow
- German Shepherd
- Icelandic Sheepdog
- Old English Sheepdog
- Saint Bernard
- Siberian Husky
The dogs in the pictures above sure seem to be having a great time. The main thing I noticed is that they were almost all running! Gotta keep that blood pumping to stay warm.
