Pet Winter Care Tips

“Winter is here and this means that your dog needs an extra special attention and proper care during this freezing and icy season.”

Winter care for dogs differs with their breed. There are some dogs that cope well with cold weather and there are others that don’t. You have to know the preference and biological constitution of your dog to decide upon the kind of pet care is appropriate for your dog. As they say prevention is better than cure so if you have earlier experience of problems then it is better to take preventive winter care measures for dogs.

Just like you, your dog feels cold at night. It might even urge them to pee in their sleep. You have to give them a blanket to keep them warm. Usually dogs are loving animals who like to snuggle up next to you in cold weather. If you don’t want to have them in your bed then make them a cozy and comfortable bed of their own, ideal situation is to provide them with a stylish Modern Dog House to provide them with a space of their own.

If you are giving your dog a bath, then blow dry their hair immediately. Dampness is very dangerous for dogs as the phlegm will accumulate in their lungs. If your dog is scared of blow dryers use a towel to give then a thorough wipe and don’t let them out for some time.

Your dog needs quality and proper dog nutrition intake during wintertime. Like humans, dogs become more susceptible to getting sick during the winter when our immune system abilities are lowered. Adding the proper supplements is the easiest way to ensure your dog is healthy. Give your dog extra calories to produce heat in their body. Feed more meat to your dog as a winter care measure. Give them only warm milk and no cold things like ice creams even if they drool over it.

It’s important to stay active during the winter, even if this means playing indoors. Rest is also important so your dog can build up and store the extra energy they need to keep warm in cold temperatures. A good balance of exercise and rest is the key.

Paw Care is very important for your dog as salt and other chemicals used to treat roads, in addition to the biting cold, can mean painful pads that leads to licking or itchy skin that leads to scratching. Wiping you dog’s paws after each time they’re outside will help remove irritants from the outdoor elements and prevent little cuts and cracks from forming. If your dog’s paws become irritated, try soaking them in warm water.

Proper brushing and grooming ensures better circulation and therefore a better ability to keep warm in the cold. It also helps to towel dry or blow dry (on low heat) to fully dry your dog after being outdoors in the elements.

Modern Dog House

AB2G0909c_LowJust like each one of us desire a good place to work, entertain and rest, our dog also deserves a place of their own to get away from everything, a place where they can be feel secure and comfortable.

There are virtually hundreds of dog houses on market currently and selecting a perfect dog house for your dog can be a very confusing and challenging task for many of us. Among many other important factors, there are few factors that we need to consider in selecting a dog house for your pet.

First of all, size of dog house is the most important factor in selecting a perfect dog house for your pet, it should be a just big enough space for your pet to walk into the house, turn around and lay down comfortably, it shouldn’t be too big for your dog as they feel more secure in a tight space then a large space.

Secondly, it needs to be easy to clean and maintain on daily bases. There are many dog houses made of different materials on market. If it’s made of soft material such as fabric and foam, it should be easily machine washable. Spot cleaning method is not a good option as you will eventually have to buy a new dog house not too long after. If it’s made of solid material, it needs to be easy to wipe clean the whole house with a wet cloth with some mild cleaning liquid.

Thirdly, it should also match your home décor, even though the dog house is for your pet, we cannot ignore the fact that it needs to fit into our home décor as it will be most likely placed in our living room area. However, considering that there are many hundreds of dog house designs on market, I personally find that it is very hard to find a dog house that is trendy, modern, luxury, well designed dog house that fits into my house interior. That’s why we have developed Modern Dog House to provide a top of the line product with quality for dog owners who are looking for a special gift to their pet.

I wish you the best in search of a perfect modern dog house.
