One of the big perks for me about having a cat and not a dog is I don’t have to ho-humm every winter when it’s time for the (twice) daily walks. My cat is strictly indoors so I don’t have to fight over the temperature, snow drop and get my cat winter-gear-ready.
The same is not said for dogs though. They need to be walked outside (preferably) usually a few times a day — regardless of the weather. They need the exercise and, well, they’re not litter box trained.
I can see it as a bonus in that it forces you to move during the winter, which can be hard to find the motivation to do, but me — no thanks.
If you live in an area where winter and snow are a reality, there are some cute products you can get for your dog to help keep them warm during the cold winter months.
Check out these cute winter finds for dogs I found on Etsy:
