Vermont Popular Breeds and Winter Dog Safety Tips

Labradors, Golden Retrievers, and Beagles are the three most popular breeds in Vermont. Whichever breed you choose, there are some things you’ll need to keep in mind during the cold, snowy winters in Vermont. Here are some Vermont winter dog safety tips to keep in mind.

  1. You’ve probably heard about how dangerous it can be to leave a dog out in a car during warm weather. But did you know it can be equally dangerous to leave your pets in cars during cold wintry weather? Vehicles can quicky plummet to freezing temperatures and your pooch could potentially freeze to death, so never leave your dog unattended in a car during a Vermont winter.
  2. Even if your dog is a breed that is well-adapted to Vermont winters, keep in mind that when the temperature drops, you’ll need to bring her inside. Even the best cold weather dogs can’t survive Vermont’s icy rain and snowy conditions.
  3. Keep in mind that dogs burn more energy during the cold winter months. This means when winter comes around in Vermont, you’ll have to feed your dog a few extra calories. Also, remember that cold weather does not mean your pet doesn’t need to stay hydrated. Ensure your dog has plenty of fresh, clean water to drink at all times, and make sure the water is unfrozen.
  4. There are additional dangers for dogs in the Vermont winter. For example, sidewalk de-icers contain chemicals that can be lethal for dogs. Even brief contact with your dog’s skin can cause severe irritation. Similarly, antifreeze is dangerous, so be sure to clean up any spills. Antifreeze products that contain propylene glycol are safer than those that contain ethylene glycol, so check the labels and consider buying the former.
  5. During the winter months in Vermont, you should regularly check your dog’s paws, paying special attention between the toes where ice crystals can become trapped. Applying some petroleum jelly between the toes may protect them. Every time you bring your dog back in from the outdoors, be sure to dry him off with a towel.

If you have further questions about dog care in Vermont, your vet is the best person to answer specific questions. If you have breed-specific questions, there are many reputable breeders in Vermont who will be happy to help you with your concerns.
