what ways can i keep my dog warm outside? Im getting straw for her house,should i get some wood shavings also? She just sits out there shivering,she has 2 thick fleece throws in her house at the moment.:rain:
What kind of weather do you have? Straw is enough for here. Crixus will still sit outside the house and shiver because she think it will get her brought in lol. We don't get snow though and 30's to high 20's is as cold as it gets here, which the dogs come in during that type of cold. I stuff the house with straw so that they can dig a house in the middle and be packed with warmth.
Wind blockage is very important as the wind will make the air feel colder to the dog.
