winter diet??

is there such a thing? I "HATE" cold weather 40deg is cold for me, I let Sonny out for 15-20mins to do whatever in the back yard he's running and going bonkers on the bushes sniffing out the cat which is fine since he's moving, i dread walking this early, i did it yesterday and didn't know it was 36deg. i couldn't feel my left hand. besides the obvious of fattening him up a bit which i don't want to do, do your dogs crave something different during the winter? i see him sniffing around the bbq pit more often we have never given him hand outs close to the bbq pit but we do bbq quite often and i've seen him lick the grease and got right on him. He's become more food motivated lately, he's on 1 1/2 2xs a day and treats during walks but no snacks in between.

During cold weather dogs need more calories so you just have to feed a bit more. You could get him a coat or sweater so that he is not using so many calories when he's outside playing. How much does he weigh and what food are you feeding?

I feed him BB wilderness kibble and BB wilderness canned food and Vital Cold cut salmon. His food very low on carbs so he's on the lean side.

You didn't say how much he weighs, but that's OK. Just feed him more in the winter time.

I have to feed Vendetta more in the winter or if I exceriser her more as she drops weight fast.

You could add a tsp of lard to his diet. I did this alot when I had all the rescues here. In the winter I would make them rice and hamburger and add the lard. They would get this once a day then one feeding of dog food.

I have a 3 year old who I took on about 2 months ago that was pretty underweight I have been feeding her 4 cups a day for 2 months straight she has put on enough weight to be healthy and make it through the winter. During spring time I will drop it back down to 2 1/2 cups. But I think for an adult 4 cups daily of a good feed is more that enough to put on just enough weight without going overboard it will also maintain that added weight throughout the cold winter months.
