Short-Haired Dogs And Coats/Sweaters

hispring1The above picture is of Dexter, a very handsome boxer mix, that used to stay with us often.  Since Spring is taking its time to arrive, make sure that your canine companion is properly attired when you go out with him.  Dogs that have short hair like Dexter need to wear a coat or sweater or both to keep them warm.

hispring2Dogs that are very lean, like my Alex, also need to wear a coat when the weather is cold.  In Alex’s case, I make her wear both a sweater and a coat.  She is not too crazy about it, but I need to make sure that she is warm.

Dogs look adorable in sweaters, that’s for sure, but remember that for many dogs like short-haired dogs, and lean dogs, wearing a coat or sweater is a necessity.

Spring is Coming – 2015

spring151Do you know how Alex is going to welcome Spring?  She will start by taking frequent naps specially when we go out sightseeing and/or shopping.  She has to have her beauty sleep.

spring152Alex’s naps will be followed by walks throughout the day.  She is a senior, almost 13 years old, and as such it is very important that she keeps her mobility, therefore exercise within reason is essential.

spring153Aside from naps and walks, Alex will also be working on some training.  She enjoys it as long as the reward is food so that is easily accomplished.  How will you and your furry kids be welcoming Spring?
