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.

So the temps are dropping here in Indiana. This is my first winter with my husky Gidget. I know she is a cold weather dog, but how safe is it to leave her outside and at what point/temp should I not leave her out? We normally leave her on the back porch when we go out, she stays inside at night. Thanks!

Let me see if I can find the picture... Found it. It was 7° or so when this pic was taken.

Once the cold weather comes, I can't keep him inside. He has a dog house, only uses it when it is BOTH very, very cold, as in low single digits or colder AND high winds.

Caveat: make sure there is shelter available, somewhere without wind, and water. Otherwise, good Samaritans may you to police. Also, your local/State laws regarding shelter dogs outside. Our local animal control last just laughed when I said I afraid people would report me for s dog outside winter. She rolled her eyes and said He's a husky!

Thanks, that’s kind of what I figured. She always seems perfectly comfortable outside in the mornings when it’s cooler. I also do have plenty of “Good Samaritans” around me so I’ll be aware of that as well.

I remember when we picked up our Aussie from the breeder. She walked us outside to the kennel area where she had put in nice dog houses and concrete pads. I asked her about them and she said, humorously, it was a waste of money. She said she'd come out in freezing temperatures with snow on the ground and find the dogs laying in the snow.... right next to those nice dog houses. Smile

I don't worry about temperature at all with mine and the cold. I do try to keep the deck cleaned off though so that they have the option of getting their feet off the cold ice (we don't get snow much and instead gets ice). I will also use musher's secret on their feet to help keep snow/frost buildup out of their toe hairs and to give a little protection to their paw pads.
