Inevitably, your dog will need to be left alone sometimes. (After all, someone has to buy the dog food!) Unsupervised puppies and dogs can do quite a lot of damage, especially if they are anxious, bored, or teething. You certainly hope that your dog won’t destroy the house while you’re out, but as the saying goes, hope is not a strategy. Here are some tips to help keep your dog happy – and your house in one piece! – while you can’t keep an eye on her.
Compared to heat, cold might not seem like a big deal for dogs. After all, a dog’s normal body temperature is a few degrees warmer than ours, and many dogs have thick fur coats! But dogs can get frostbite and hypothermia just like we can, and it’s not safe for most dogs to spend long amounts of time outdoors in very cold climates. In addition, dogs’ tolerance to cold can vary widely according to breed, age, and health. For example, a sturdy husky won’t need a sweater or a coat, but a tiny Pomeranian might. (Sure, both dogs are fluffy, but the Pomeranian has a much lower body mass to help keep her warm.) Here are some important considerations to help keep your dog healthy and happy in the winter months.

If you have a large- or giant-breed dog, you’ve probably come across lots of dog products that are, well, dainty. “Yeah, right,” you think as you see yet another flimsy little dog bed. “My dog could maybe fit a paw in that thing, and it would be shredded in a minute!” Whether it’s a chew toy or a dog bed – not that there’s much of a difference to a Labrador! – you know it’s got to be big and rugged, or it’s a waste of your money.
Holiday entertaining can be a little tricky when there’s a furry friend in the house, but it needn’t stress you out. Here are a few tips for keeping everyone happy and comfortable during your holiday celebrations.
