ejano Posted December 29, 2011 Report Share Posted December 29, 2011 It was a brisk 15 degrees when we went to the farm this morning. None of my dogs have a heavy coat - they are house dogs. Ladybug is 12 and really doesn't like the cold anymore. Lacking anything else, I slipped on old wool sweater over her head while she waited briefly in the car for her turn at a run. (I can't say she was pleased with it. By the time I returned, she had it off.) I also worry about Brodie -- light coat, no fat. And Robin, a heavier dog with the heaviest coat, gets heated pretty quickly even in the cold. Three different dogs; three different needs. How would you coat them for the cold weather when you would expect them to work up a bit of a sweat either running or working the sheep, then have to wait for me while I finish the barn chores - say 15 minutes to a half hour.
