Will not keep Snood on ???

Buddy the Dork is driving me crazy he will not keep his snood on he has the long show cropped ears.Oklahoma is suppose to have 0 wind chills Tuesday/ Wednesday hardly gets that cold here.For those who have that type of cold how long should I leave them out to do their business??? Of course Buddy does not want me out there watching.Thanks for any ideas not sure how long it would take ear tips to freeze in 0 degree weather.

Well where I am it is -14C and with the windchill it is -20C!!! Gunner goes out, does his business and sometimes is out there for at least 5 minutes; he has to rid the backyard of any squirrels, crows etc.!!! But when he's cold, he will come in!

Yesterday the weather was similar although the sun was out in full and Gunner and I took a walk for about 20 mins (including sniff and pee breaks it was about 25mins) he wore one of his new jackets he received for Christmas (snood attached) and I didn't bother with boots and he was fine. When we arrived back home, he was zooming through the house happy as anything! And Gunner has long show cropped ears as well.

I think just the fresh air etc. is of such benefit for them (and humans too!) that as long as the total time out per trip outside is not hours!!! They're okay. Of course each dog reacts differently, and there will be signs if your dog is getting cold, but all my 3 males have always been able to spend some time outside and it was never too much!

I live in northern MN and we just had a freezing weekend (-30 F windchill)! Wic went out for her hike both days. It's too cold to go in the morning so we waited til afternoon. She wore her jacket but no boots. I think as long as they are moving they are fine.

Well I am not sure about that cold of weather and hope to never experience it. But I was hoping to see a pic!

What would I do without them?

Hi Ann,

How long is Wic's hike? I left Jersey home on Saturday b/c I thought 10 degrees above zero would be too cold for her ears and feet... I wasn't sure if we were going to be out for 2 hours or 5 hours.... and I though 5 hours would be just too long ....

Any insight would be helpful b/c Jersey is holding my boots hostage until I get her the right gear for winter hiking...
