Top Winter Products For Your Dog

November 29, 2012 • Author: Ruff Haus

Here are some of our fave products to help you and your pet enjoy the winter weather…

Heated Water Bowl

With temperatures dropping and snow falling, it can be easy to forget about the fresh water you set out a few hours ago. Pets don't innately know to paw through ice to find water (if it isn't already frozen solid). Eating snow isn't an adequate way to take in water, either. Keep the pet water unfrozen and readily available with a heated water bowl.

Heated Pet Bed

For arthritic pets, a heated bed is a helpful addition all year round, in all climates! For the cold days of winter, a heated bed is a welcome comfort for indoor pets and a necessity for many outdoor pets. Different beds are available for indoor or outdoor use. Find one that fits your pet's needs.

Dog Sweaters and Jackets

While some people dress up their pets for fun, harsh climates make dog coats a necessity for some breeds. All dogs are not suited for all types of weather. Short-coated dogs benefit from a weather-resistant coat. Older dogs can keep a chill off even indoors with a sweater. Caution is advised for pets wearing clothes — supervision is advised.

Dog Boots

Dogs can be very picky about their feet and what touches their paws, but if they will be tolerant of boots, these are a great way to protect paws from snow, ice, cold temperatures and chemical deicers.

Pet Safe Ice melt and Antifreeze

Keeping things from freezing or becoming icy and slippery are top concerns for winter. These endeavors used to pose a potentially deadly hazard from pets who lick paws or boots that had deicer on them or by tasting deadly antifreeze. 

 

Paw Rub

Paw rubs are great in cold weather and can help with sore or split paws caused by cold weather. They improve the healing process, improve moisture retention, soothe and protect the skin from environmental damage. Most are natural and safe for licking dogs!
