Teaching your dog to track scents is a sneaky way to exercise his mind and body at the same time. Command your dog to sit and start dropping small treats along a track that leads to his favorite toy. Gradually, increase the length of the track and drop fewer treats as he begins to understand the game.
If you will be taking your pets outside in freezing temperatures, then be sure to wrap them up warm to avoid sickness and hypothermia. Large dog breeds such as Labradors, huskies and German shepherds are generally fine with the cold, but smaller breeds may require a fluffy sweater or waterproof coat in order to be comfortable. What are your dog’s favorite winter activities?
