Not all dog owners like the cold, snowy winter weather and that's why people like us were created. THE OUTDOORSY PEOPLE! Bleh! We at BFF love the outdoors! It's kind of a requirement for the job as we spend a lot of time walking with your pups outside or running in the fields at the BFF Ranch. One of the things people don't take into consideration when getting a pup is the hours you'll have to spend outside making sure they're getting the required exercise for the breed. If growing up with high energy dogs has taught me anything, it's that a bored puppy is a destructive puppy.
Here are some things you can do to exercise your pup in the winter!
1. Doggie Playcare: I know I know, but you would not believe how magical Playcare is in the winter! At BFF the dogs spend the day playing, resting, playing, and they get a 30 minute walk! I told you already, we LOVE the outdoors!
3. Training: Mental exhaustion. It's the best. Have you been dying to try out a new trick or maybe practice the oldies? Hide-and-seek is a great training game to play as it forces the dog to use her nose. It's also a great chance to practice your stay and come commands.
4. GO OUTSIDE: I said it. Go outside! Put on snowpants, jacket, scarf, mitts, hat, boots, grab your pup and have fun!

1. Boots: This is the only thing on the list I would say is absolutely necessary. I've even got them on my 70lb pupper! You've got two boot options for your pupper; the balloon and dog boots. The balloon is probably my favourite because it comes in a pack, are pretty easy to put on (once
3. Goggles: If you do lots of hiking in the mountains, let me know where you find them in Ontario because I'm gonna go. Anyways, you need to think of your pups eyes. That snow is BRIGHT! Luckily you can buy goggles especially for pups to make sure their precious baby eyes are protected ALWAYS. They're also great for summer if you find a desert (again, WHERE!?).
