Puppy love: keep your best bud warm this winter
Although you can't give your dog a hot chocolate to sip on to help warm them up, there are plenty of other ways to keep them cosy. From blankets to clothing, your best bud will be living it up this winter.
Beds and blankets
When winter arrives, we usually put on our flannelette sheets and thicker blankets on the bed to keep ourselves warm, so don't forget to make sure your dogs bedding also adjusts for the new season. Whether it's extra blankets or a warm new bed, there are plenty of things to do to make sure your pets are warm when the temperature drops at night.

We know it's cute, but dog clothing is also very functional during winter. The breed will affect how much help they will need to stay warm, as will the age and size of the dog. If they are spending a lot of time outside, opt for a waterproof coat to protect them if there is any rain.

A lot of dogs spend an extended amount of time indoors throughout the cold season, so make sure you keep them entertained. Plenty of toys should keep them occupied and happy, and hopefully stop them from touching anything else in the house.
