With the cold weather here in Vermont it is important to keep an eye on your furry companion. More like their feet. Some of your dogs have fur that grows under their paws. In the winter this can collect the snow and make it difficult to walk. Trimming the hair as short as possible will make the snow harder to collect and easier for your dog to pull out. There might be some products available that might help. Check out your local pet store. Booties are also another option.
