While I understand that there are a handful of northern dog breeds who prefer cold weather, a majority of dogs will become chilly in cooler temperatures just as humans do. As pet parents it’s important that we keep our pets warm in the winter months, especially if they are small, senior or injured. For the sake of this blog post (and my dog mom parenting style since Wynston is a Chihuahua), we’ll say that a warm dog is a cozy dog. Therefore, here’s advice on how to keep your dog warm in the winter.
You all know that traveling with Wynston is my favorite hobby! Whether I’m heading out on the road or sky, I always have Wynston in tow. Traveling is much more fun with a canine companion! Something that I preach when traveling with my boy is safety, especially in the car. I’ve written several blog posts about traveling with dogs, but now we get to be a part of a first hand pet travel safety event at Earnhardt Lexus! The best part? You have the opportunity to join us, Sleepypod and A Girl’s Guide to Cars at the Earnhardt Lexus dealership on December 1, 2018 to learn more about the importance of pet travel safety. Plus, enter to win an amazing Sleepypod prize package!
Thanksgiving and Christmas are the busiest travel holidays of the year. This is no surprise, but a statistic that is changing is how many people travel with their pets. The percentage has drastically increased in the last decade. With that being said, up next in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents blog series is holiday pet travel tips. Whether you’re bringing your dog to visit family or you have to leave them at a dog boarding facility, I have some useful tips and advice for you!
I think as pet parents we can all agree that safety is always top priority for our pets. Often when I think of Christmas and the holiday season, I rarely think of the multitude of risks that come along with it. We’re so caught up in a holly jolly Christmas, that we forget about the dangers it can pose. Sounds silly, right? Well, not for our fur babies. The fireplace, Christmas lights and tinsel can put us at the vet’s office too quickly, so it’s important that we’re mindful throughout the season. I’ve compiled a holiday pet safety guide to get you and your fur friends through Thanksgiving and Christmas without any emergencies. This blog post is the first of twelve in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents.
