Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

In ohio we got a couple of inches of snow (so far) which Kemba loved more than me naturally. So I decided that he would like to go out for a run in it. Kemba after the run in the snow.

So this brings me to the question of what gear do you use to get out in the snow (human or dog) and not get wet and miserably cold? Also what activities do you do with your dog in the snow?

I have North Face everything cause I'm a crazy North Face junkie and that always keeps me really dry plus it literally lasts forever, so thats always great when things are expensive!

We haven't done a lot in the snow in the recent couple of years rather then just doing long walks in it, but this year I have a 75 ft long lead and that way they can kind of explore and not have to be right next to me, and then I actually am taking Monday off (its the day the snow is supposed to finally get to us) and we are going to try skijoring, which I am beyond excited for. I would suggest that if you have paths around you. As far as gear for the dogs, I use Musher's secret for their paws (so snow doesn't build up) and then just let them go outside.

My personal favorite is Skijor, next would be the kick sled. Maya hasn't needed any "extra" gear over what she came with, but last year was mild so who knows. I combat the paw snowballs by keeping the hair cut short. This year I will be adding a loaner dog that is not mostly Husky so she may need booties or mushers secret for her paws. Real cold she may need a belly warmer or coat.
