How to Keep Dogs Warm Outside in the Winter

Black dog in the winterWondering how to keep dogs warm outside? A few simple steps will keep your pup warm all winter long.

If you live in a cold winter climate, you may be worried about how to keep dogs warm outside. Since I live in Rhode Island, I’m all too familiar with how cold it can get in the winter months. Since I’m a fluffy dog, everyone always comments on my “warm-looking winter coat.” How frustrating! Just because I’m covered head to paw in fur, doesn’t mean I don’t get cold. Same goes for all dogs – especially dogs who spend most or all of their day outside.

If your dog spends a lot of time outside, look into purchasing a dog house to shelter him from the wind. If money isn’t an issue, there are certain heated dog houses to keep dogs warm outside in the winter. If budget is a concern, there are many DIY options to help your dog stay warm in a non-heated dog house. The best dog house roof will be sloped, and an insulated house is always recommended. If you’re looking for a way to insulate your outdoor dog house, adding fresh straw provides some warmth.

Personally, I’m glad I get to snuggle up in a warm house with my family. If your dog stays outside in the winter, I’d recommend finding them a warm place inside to sleep at night. You wouldn’t want to sleep outside in the winter, would you?

If your dog’s outdoor home is big enough, we recommend including bedding, to keep him both comfortable and warm. Think strategically when placing bedding in the dog house, as it should never be put directly on a damp floor. Consider using a tarp underneath your dogs bedding, or even better, purchase a raised bed for your pooch.

Now this suggestion won’t be popular with all dog breeds, but I highly suggest purchasing some dog sweaters for your dog, especially a small dog. Like I said before, dogs still get cold, and wearing a sweater can really help keep your dog feeling warm. This next suggestion is something I’d never be caught dead wearing, but if your dog’s feet go numb from the snow, you may want to consider buying dog boots. Yes, dog boots! While they may be a fashion faux pas, they will protect your dog’s feet from the snow and ice. If you don’t want to invest in dog boots, but are worried about your dog’s feet, you may want to clip the hair between your dog’s paw pads. This will prevent snow and ice from collecting between paws. Trust me – this makes our feet so chilly.

Finally, if you’re looking for an easy fix, exercise helps keeps dogs warm during the winter! Take your dog out regularly for a walk or run. Just be sure to have clean water on hand when you return so your dog doesn’t get dehydrated. Oh, and follow his cues. If it seems your dog is tiring more quickly in the cold weather or is lifting his paws, it may be time to finish exercising.
A few things not to do in the winter: Don’t bathe your dog outside. The winter weather is too cold to clean your dog outdoors. A trip to the groomers or bathing in your bathroom is the only necessary grooming that needs to be done in the wintertime. Also, never leave your dog in the car during the winter when it’s freezing out. I like to pal around with my parents as much as possible and don’t mind hanging out for a bit when it’s nice out, but I prefer to stay home when it’s really cold out.

Some dogs – like Siberian Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes – love the cold weather. They could spend all day outside. Other breeds, such as toy dogs or hairless dogs, may have a more difficult time adjusting to warm weather. Get familiar with your pet’s tolerance to the outdoors. Some breeds are more susceptible to the winter weather than others.

    Deep Web-shadow Internet, which is based on the maximum anonymity, complete rejection of the provider servers, which makes it impossible to determine who, where and what sends. This is created using onion routing. Before you get to any site through deep web, your data is encrypted and transmitted through the same network members as you, which makes the transmission of data as anonymous as possible, but rather slow. Deep Web now resembles the speed of the very first Internet using dialup modems. The sites are on it are encrypted with the domain names .onion. It was Tor that created the largest onion network. It is a network in which there are no rules, laws, and countries.What can be purchased in the domain zone .onion? Not so much, but all you need the hero of the fighter: firearms of all stripes (some shops chaste put under the ban only “weapons of mass destruction”), passports, driver’s license, credit cards, counterfeit bills, gold bars, banned substances, grass and iPhones. They say you can still buy killers, slaves or human organs.

    How to get on the Dark Web Technically, this is not a difficult process. You simply need to install and use Tor. Go to and download the Tor Browser, which contains all the required tools. Run the downloaded file, choose an extraction location, then open the folder and click Start Tor Browser. That’s it. The Vidalia Control Panel will automatically handle the randomised network setup and, when Tor is ready, the browser will open; just close it again to disconnect from the network.
