This winter, El Paso, keep your dog safe outside with a few helpful hints from the Buzz Adams Morning Show.
It's January in El Paso and it's finally getting cold. Well, everyone may like the cold once in a while, but native El Pasoans are most certainly not used to it. That includes their dogs too. Here are a few, hopefully helpful, tips to keeping your dogs safe outside this El Paso winter.
HOW COLD IS TOO COLD FOR DOGS?
For every dog out there, the time of how long they can safely stay outside really depends on the TYPE of dog you have. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), there's no one-size-fits-all solution or answer. Everything depends on the breed, size of your dog, and length of hair.
WHAT ARE THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MY DOG SPECIFICALLY?
According to lifeHacker:
" Puppies fewer than 8 weeks old: Keep indoors during cold weather
Toy breeds: Keep indoors during cold weather
Brachycephalic breeds (i.e. dogs with short noses, like pugs and French bulldogs): Keep indoors (especially when exercising)
Smaller breeds: Limit outings in temperatures below 32ºF to 10-15 minutes
Larger breeds: Limit outings in temperatures below 32ºF to 30-60 minutes
Arctic breeds: Can stay outside in the cold indefinitely, as long as they are acclimated."
