5 Tips to Help You and Your Pet Get Through Winter

January 3, 2018

Whether you have snow on the ground or you’re lucky enough to have warmer temperatures, here are 5 easy ideas to make the winter more bearable for you and your furry friends.

5 Winter Weather Tips:

  1. Let in some fresh air.
    When you start to feel cooped up – even though it might be freezing cold outside – open your front door, grab the dog, step out for just a few moments and take a deep breath. Look at the sky and perhaps the snow. Simply take a break and fill your lungs with fresh air. Doesn’t that feel good? Now get back inside, it’s cold out there!

  2. Have fun no matter what the temperature is.
    Embrace the outdoors like your dog does! The best way to enjoy the colder months is to appreciate it through your dog’s eyes. Don’t you wish you could play outside without a worry in the world? Give it a try.

  3. Get out and about.
    Go shopping at a pet-friendly store and don’t forget to bring the furry companion! Sometimes all you need is a little retail therapy. Does the dog need a new sweater, winter booties or calming support chews?

  4. Take time to relax.
    It’s ok to lounge around with a warm blanket, cuddly cat and hot cocoa watching your favorite flick. Sometimes being cooped up in the house all winter reminds us of the things that need to be done around the house. Don’t forget to take time to simply relax and unwind. Plan a movie or game night with your friends or family members! If you can’t be outside, you might as well be having fun inside. What fun activities are you enjoying indoors while the weather is less than ideal?

  5. Cuddle up with a nice book and a furry friend.
    There are many advantages to being inside with your pet. For one, you get more cuddle time. Read a few books that you haven’t had the opportunity to get to. Sit by the fireplace, book in hand and your best four-legged friend relaxing next to you. Take advantage of having more time indoors. Enjoy your home and your company.

We hope these 5 quick tips serve as a nice reminder that you can have fun even when colder weather is taking over your life! Please be careful and stay warm.
