ReTail Scene: Cold Weather Gear for Outdoor Dogs

We recently posted an article about Dogs and Cold Weather. Carolina Mountain Dog does not endorse dogs living outside. We feel, as do animal experts, that dogs need to bond with their human families and be part of a pack. Dogs are susceptible to dangers living outdoors, including changes in climate and potential attacks from other dogs or animals who live in the wild.

We recognize, however, that there are owners who choose to have their pets live outdoors. The recent cold weather is extremely dangerous for outside dogs, so we urge anyone who keeps their dog outside to take special precautions. Two products that are especially useful for cold weather conditions are:

Lectro kennel heated pad 1. Lectro Kennel Heated Pad - This pad can be used on the ground or attached to the wall of a dog house and it is designed for outdoor use. It is made of rugged plastic and a steel wrapped cord and comes in three sizes (small, medium, and large). Available from our partner, Cherrybrook.

Heated water bowl  2. Heated Water Bowl - A water bowl designed to keep water from freezing even if temperatures reach minus 20 degrees F. All electrical elements are safely sealed in the steel cord. Available from our partner, Cherrybrook.
