Podcast – Cold Weather and Holiday Tips for Pets-2017

< Click to Listen to Podcast >

Like it or not the seasons are changing. With the change in season, we get colder temperatures, less daylight, and other changes in our environment which will affect both us and our pets. Add to that the fact that the last two months of the year are jam-packed with both the joy and chaos of numerous frenetic activities and holiday festivities. It can be a tough time of year for our pets who overall are not big fans of change and disruption of their routines. In this week’s show, Kate and Don discuss how to deal with snow, cold and ice and how to dress yourself and your dog when you are out at night or in the woods during the day. We talk about a wide variety of potential seasonal hazards such as antifreeze, wood stoves, wood piles, candy, and more. Lastly, we discuss how to deal with the holidays so that they are enjoyable for you, your pets and your guests.

Shared Blog Post – Should you shave your dogs this summer?

This post from Dogs Naturally Magazine discusses why you will NOT be making your long-haired dog more comfortable by shaving them in the summer. Dogs with double-coats (Alaskan Malamutes, Australian Shepherds, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Golden Retrievers, Newfoundlands, Siberian Huskies, and more) need their coat to protect them from the sun and to insulate them from the heat. Shaving a dog with a double-coat can cause permanent damage.
