RSPCA winter tips for keeping your dog safe, snug and happy

The days are getting shorter – and darker – and that means winter is here!

Wet walks

Cold, rainy and windy weather might put us off going outside in winter – but dogs need their exercise to stay happy and healthy.

So gather your grown-ups, pop on a scarf, gloves, tough footwear and an extra jumper and off you go!

You and your dog should wear reflective clothing – or use lights – so traffic can see you easily. It can be quite dark in winter even in the daytime!

Snowy tips

Keep your dog away from frozen ponds and lakes as they can be very dangerous – for your dog (and for you!) as ice can break under a dog’s weight.

Check your dog’s paws after a snowy walk – ice can collect between their pads and that’s really uncomfortable! Putting their paws in a bowl of lukewarm water will gently melt the problem away.

The school holidays will soon be here – hurrah!!

Enjoy the build-up to Christmas!
