Brrr--I don't know about you, but here in N. Texas we've gone from triple-digit temps and sunburn weather to chilly rain and shivery winds. Other parts of the country have already experienced frost on the pumpkin. It takes me a while to get used to the frigid sweatshirt weather. You'll want to acclimate your puppy to the change in temperatures, too.
Yes, puppies have fur coats. But they don't fully "fluff" until adulthood and the shorthaired pups can get pretty darn cold. Maybe your little guy would appreciate a sweater? Without it, he might be reluctant to do his (ahem) business with the wind whistling around his tail and instead get creative under your potted palm! Bigger, woolier pups might enjoy the cooler temperatures. And you might have plans for your Husky to spend lots of time playing in a winter wonderland.
But even cold-loving-canines need shelter. And they need time to get used to the inclement weather. My latest article explains why puppies need more high-calorie food in cold weather, how to get her used to wearing a sweater, what makes a good dog house and more. Check out all the tips here--and please share your own cold weather tips!
