Pet Health 101 – Exercising Your Dog in the Winter

Cold Winter Exercising Your Dog Will Appreciate

The leaves finished falling a while ago. If you live in the north, you probably look outside to see a blanket of snow; in the south, the air is brisker and you’re probably spending more time indoors. Many people enjoy exercising indoors and the same can be said when it comes to exercising your dog.  Likewise, your dog isn’t enjoying the freedom of warm weather and long walks these days. Being cooped inside a house all winter can make your dog bored and anxious, and anxious dogs often act out by destroying your possessions. All dogs need to work out their energy during the day, but that’s hard to do when the temperature drops.

Pick the Best Puppy Food

Bringing home a new puppy is a rewarding and exciting experience. What a lot of people don’t talk about is how it’s also confusing, especially if you’re a first-time puppy parent. Most common puppy care questions will hit you as you’re pushing your cart down the pet aisle. You’ll see tons of different dog foods and each one claims it’s the  best. You can’t simply feed a puppy any dog food; their stomachs are sensitive and some puppy foods aren’t made with quality ingredients. Not only that, but puppies require a different diet than adult dogs. Puppy food has nutrition that encourages healthy growth. Not only do you need to pick the right brand, but you’ll need to figure out your puppy’s feeding schedule.
