Guest maya's mom Posted January 16, 2009 Report Share Posted January 16, 2009 Here in Pittsburgh, we are in the middle of that nasty cold spell. The high today is around 5, and with wind chill, it is around -15. I'd like to get opinions on when it is too cold for your dog to be outside, even for a short play session. Usually in the winter, we go out for 30min to an hour or so, 2 or 3 times a day, and sometimes take a 30 min walk at night. We have started cutting back on the walk, b/c of poor road conditions, but I haven't yet had to completely cut out the outside play time. That being said, even the shorter outdoor play sessions, make me feel bad for Maya........I don't want her to get bored in the house. We do play frisbee catch inside, we chase her around, play hide and seek, and do a few short training sessions a few times a day. Am I right to not be outside right now? I guess I just feel guilty and don't want to have her get a lot of pent up energy, since she is used to running it off outdoors. Thanks.
