Thread: Dog Walking in the Rain

  1. #11

    Default

    Rainy days are indoor days at my house.
    My dogs hate it, when they need to go to the toilet outside they race out, wee as fast as they can and then race back inside!

    There are some great waterproof dog coats out there, and dare I say it.... you can even buy rain hats for them

    If your dog doesn't mind or even enjoys walking in the rain then go for it. But just be careful on cold days and make sure you dry your dog thoroughly when you get home or have a heater going inside.

    Very good advice.

    I walk Pipi in the rain but only if it's not heavy rain.

    I bought her a raincoat which covers head to her backside, it also has a hood so she stays dry

    I also have an umbrella and I find that because she walks with her head at the tip of my feet that she actually fits under the umbrella with me.

    Max and Teddy are a no no - they are still learning not to pull and I do not want to be pulled into large puddles and muddy patches because they can't walk properly

    I also keep a towel ready at the front door where I dry her off. After she is dried off I put her in a nice warm bath and dry in front of the heater where she then puts her jacket on.

    She hasn't got much fat so she has to be kept really warm after walks in the rain.
