Its important to carefully plan your indoor and outdoor setup to ensure the safety and comfort of your dog/s.
Outdoor Shelter or Access to Indoor Shelter
With temperatures falling the priorities for your dog safety change. While you still need to make sure they have a shady spot to rest and water you now also have to provide indoor warm shelter for the evenings or harsh weather.
If you have a gifted and talented dog who is known to be a escape artist the increased number of outdoor critters such as bunnies and squirrels create a compounded problem with their chase instinct. Make sure they are properly tagged or chipped. This will equip others to help your dog find their way back home
Weather Appropriate Outfits
Dog clothes are not necessarily a fashion statement or evidence of a spoiled hound. If your dog participates in outdoor activities such as hiking and hunting and they have a smooth coat or had a recent haircut consider using a coat.
