Winter Weather and Your Australian Labradoodle

These last few weeks, you can’t catch me without a warm drink in my hand.  This polar vortex has got me looking for all kinds of ways to stay warm!  Even with these Pawcold temperatures, your puppy will still enjoy getting outside to exercise.  Our puppies love to get out and romp in the snow, especially the fluffy snow! 
However, there are a few things to be cautious of.  After your puppy returns from his time of play, make sure to dry off his feet and clean the snow in between his toes.  You don’t want your puppy to get frostbite.  It is also helpful to keep the hair well trimmed  around his feet.  The picture on the right is a well groomed paw.
You can regularly take him to the groomer or you yourself can trim the hair around his feet with a pair of trimming shears or clippers.  To find out more helpful tips please check out the following website 
 

Keep your dog healthy this winter!
