Run In The Snow With Your Dog
Special Interest: Running
Not all dogs can run in the snow for a variety of reasons – they are too small, the snow is too wet or icy, or some would rather sit by a cozy fire. If your dog loves romping through white fluffly snow, then consider going on a run – a short one that is! Make sure to bundle up and provide paw protection. Have fun in your winter wonderland and keep an eye out for your dog so he does not get lost in some deep snow drift. If your dog is off leash make sure he has good recall.
Submit a picture of your dog running through his winter wonderland! Did you stop and have some fun along the way?

Safety: Please consult your vet on running with your dog, especially if you have a puppy. You may also need to consult your own doctor to see if it is safe for you to run. Pay attention to your dog's abilities and start slow. Please wear proper protection and check/wash your dog’s paws after your run (no licking off salt and chemicals from the road!). Go home if your dog’s paws start bleeding or get too raw. And of course go home if your dog shows any signs of hesitation or injury! Same goes to you - running on ice can be very hazardous so pay attention to conditions and use your best judgement.
