Your pooch needs some pampering this winter, with the cold temperatures, salty walks and the wind blowing in the puppin’ bad winds. We know winter can be rough on us all, especially our furry, pawless, and snooty dogs. So we compiled some tips to help snowpups stay happy and healthy in the coldest months.
These winter care products are for dogs that will help you care for your furry friend all year.
Take care of your nose.
Happy pup, happy nose. Like hooman skin and snoots, the snoots contain cells that are sensitive to cold, dry winter air. Dog noses can become dry and cracked, just as hooman lips. This can be prevented by limiting the time your dog spends in front vents, keeping him indoors as much as possible, and using a nasal balm.
Enter Pawtitas Nose Balm. It provides protection against salt and snow, sunscreen protection, as well as prevents snoots getting dry and cracked. This balm is easy to apply and contains organic ingredients. Fido will love it. It’s hard to imagine anyone not wanting to feel better, smell better, and breathe easier.
Petco has it for $19.99
A Natural Dog Company Snout Soother Stick is vegan and easy to use for your pup. The stick is full of useful ingredients such as vitamin E, rosemary, and even jojoba oil.
Amazon has it for just $5.95
Tootsie Care: paws are meant to be used for walking.
Protect your paws from freezing surfaces. Paw pads can dry out, crack, or flake from cold surfaces. Salt used to melt pavement ice can contain hazardous chemicals that can cause irritation to already sensitive paws. In extreme temperatures, frostbite can occur on the pup’s feet. Talk about a trio! It’s time to put a barrier between your pup and her paws. Introduce paw balm!
Balms are essential to keeping your floof looking her best all season. Musher’s Secret offers a lot of bang for the buck. It is all-natural and non-toxic. Its natural scent is so subtle that Fido won’t be tempted to lick her paws, but will stick to the treats.
Petco sells it for $24.99.
It’s time to shop for shoes, because last summer was a miserable one. Winter warriors need to be prepared before they face the elements. Muttluks Original Dog Boots will protect your pads from sharp ice, frozen ground and ice melt. These fleece-lined, reflective booties are the perfect winter accessory for every pup.
Amazon starts at $60.00
Take care of your coat: Your pup needs to thrive.
Winter can cause severe damage to puppers’ hair and skin. The low humidity and cold temperatures can cause dandruff, itching skin and lead to dry and flaky skin. While shampooing less often and brushing more frequently can help to maintain healthy oils in the hair and skin, there are times when you need something more.
We love Zesty Paws Omega Bites. They keep your doggo happy and healthy from head to toe. These bacon-flavored treats contain fish oil, EPA and DHA as well as vitamin C. They provide glowing skin, strong and shiny coats, and improved immune system function. Your pup will be asking for more!
You can purchase them from Amazon for $26.97
Winter freeze is a good time to make sure your pup has a good hydration. Warren London’s Hydrating Butter is for dogs that love to feel silky smooth and without greasy residue. We recommend the Guava & Mango fragrance. It’s adorable!
Amazon has it for only $12.99
