Winter season is quite approaching. Thus, this had been causing numerous dilemmas to most working professionals. They will again leave their dogs vulnerable to various forms of health threats especially during this freezing season. Unlike summer, the number of dogs that get sick during these chilling months had gone tripling. This is the fact that most dog owners fear about. They cannot afford to lose their dogs- so as their jobs. As much as they want to stay at home to babysit their little cuddly darlings, they can’t. Thus, they need to work for the entire household.
Until such time that most dog handlers prefer to hire somebody to attend to their dogs’ needs whenever they’re out for work. Furthermore, at this certain point starts the significance of simple obedience and crate trainings to dogs. This option is a lot better as compared to the latter.
Let’s face the fact. Crate training demands time to let the dog master it. In this regard, what do will you do with dogs that are not trained with crate stuffs when winter comes?
Well, you might consider these ideas below.
Provided that your little pups are resistant to be put inside the crate, you can put them into a larger close space of the house. Bathroom is perfect. Through this, your dog is still given a bigger space to roam around. However, never forget to put the bowls for food and water inside the room. Your dog will hunger to death if you messed up with this.
Furthermore, make sure to provide dry bedding to your dogs. During winter months, bedding must be checked and replaced regularly; so that, it does not get wet and freeze. An insulator is best for this matter.
Doing so makes the dogs acquainted with the feeling of being left inside a certain space. Therefore, the moment that they will be put to a crate with a smaller dimension, they will not be as resistant as before. Readiness for this aforementioned training is developed in less sweat.
As the exhausting day of work ends, a handler’s responsibility to his or her waiting dog starts. Bear in mind that your dog might have been too much bored with being left alone inside the four corners of the room. And the best gift you can give them is your time. Spend some time walking in the park. Though it’s winter, you can do so. However, let me tell you one thing.
You need to protect your dog’s sensitive soft paws through making it wear a pair of dog booties. The salt as mixed with ice can cause damage and infection to your pup’s paws. Thus, dogs tend to lick it. If digested, a more serious health problem is expected.
Following these rules will surely shun you and your dog from unfavorable consequences.
