It’s that time of year. Yup… Minnesota WINTER… holidays and cabin fever mixed together! Before you and your family (including the canine member!) jump in the car to visit family, or maybe just find somewhere warm, we have some things for you to think about.
Sub-zero temperatures are here in Minnesota and our time outdoors has become limited. Cabin fever can affect your pup just as much as it can you. If you’re looking for some fun activities to do with her during the winter – we have a few ideas for you to try!
The Minnesota snow can be so much fun for our four-legged friends . . . Running in it . . . Digging a doggie snow-fort . . . and catching those pop-up snow balls!
But with that fun comes potential danger too . . .
De-icing products – These chemicals are dangerous for our pups, and can actually cause chemical burns on their paw pads and between their toes.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and a table filled with goodies is a dangerous place for a dog. Here are some tips to keep Fido safe this year….
Preparing for the day:
First things first, make sure he’s wearing a collar with his name and your contact info. With people coming and going and kids running out to play, it will be easy for him to slip out the door unnoticed. Tell your guests to ensure the door is tightly closed.
Dogs are my passion . . . photographing them is my hobby. Lucky for me, my business, Minnesota dog boarding facility Top Dog Country Club, allows me to enjoy my passion and my hobby every day. I am all about action shots and capturing their faces . . . revealing the character and expression in their eyes. I don’t have the advantage of a controlled environment or lighting, so getting great photos can be incredibly challenging. I am thankful for digital photography and fast cameras.
