HOW TO PROTECT YOUR PIT IN COLD WEATHER

What is the best way to protect your pit in cold weather. It's gonna be 13 degrees tonight and I am trying to find how to prepare for this weather for the next couple of weeks. I have put a bag each of cedar chips in their dog houses but wanted to see what other owners are doing to keep their babies warm. I have too many to bring in the house......

I have went thur too many dog sweaters......They must not like them.....The next morning my babies have them on the other side of the kennel...lol

Thanks

Well I don't know much about keeping dogs outdoors but increase their fat intake. More oil or crude fat if you feed raw. Also, you can feed a bit more during the cold season to keep their calorie count high as dogs will actually burn calories in the cold (they do this if they shiver)

More than anything, I'd increase the fat intake. If you feed kibble add fish oil, flax seed oil, or even olive oil.. If you feed raw, then add more crude fat. That really increases the caloric content and its not as unhealthy as overfeeding. I don't know what you feed but double sounds a bit much. Also, do they have dog houses that you built or are they store bought? Consider insulating the panels if it's somethign you built.

my big dog Delilah stays in our garage during the winter, she seems to be fine out there. she had a blanket even but carried it to the other corner of the garage and put it there lol... she stays inside part of the day and will go out there to stay at night. we also use straw inside the doghouse

I believe from reading the OP this person has too many dogs to keep inside a garage... But hey, if there's enough crates you could try it ??

Ok well lumber isn't THAT expensive I'd suggest building another couple of insulated houses if not crating the three dogs inside, three crates in a garage is not that much space. 13 degrees is cold, and if you were running a kennel of 7-10 dogs, I could understand but 3 is not too many to keep indoors JMO
