How to Keep Your Senior Dog Comfortable This Winter

Let it snow, let it snow! Winter is a wonderful time to celebrate gratitude and family with your senior dog.

  Winter Season for Dogs? Keeping Your Dogs Happy Unfortunately, with the cold weather comes more dangers and discomforts for your pooch. Read on below for some easy ways you can keep your senior dog happy and comfortable during the cold season.

Getting Outside

No matter your dog's age, exercise is very beneficial to your dog's well-being and comfort. Exercise can reduce the risk of obesity, and help your dog enjoy their last years feeling their best. Your senior dog might grow accustom to lounging around inside, so even a short stroll in the fresh air will be the perfect activity to raise their spirits and enjoy some easy exercise. Try taking your dog for a short walk around the block. If it's snowy, equip your dog with snow boots and a jacket so they can stay warm. Be aware of your dog's energy levels while you're out. Huffing, panting, and shivering are all signs it's time to go back inside and snuggle up. If the weather is too cold, but you still want to give your dog a fun activity away from home, try taking your dog with you on errands. Your senior dog will love sniffing around the new environments! Just make sure you have a 4Knines Car Seat Cover to avoid dog odors and fur from collecting in your car.

Vet Check Ups

Cold weather causes joints to stiffen, noses to run, and variety of other discomforts you might not even notice your dog is experiencing. That's why it's important to schedule at least one veterinarian appointment for your dog during the winter. Take notes on your dog's behavior before visiting. Are they having trouble standing up? Do they eat less than normal? These notes will help your vet understand any issues your dog might be having. Make sure to give your dog a fun activity or tasty treat as a reward when you return home.

Sleeping Quarters

One of the most important places in your senior dog's life is their bed. Many older dogs develop joint pain and aches, so it's important they have a quality bed to sleep on at night. Another important factor is where your dog bed is placed. Is it in a warm, comfortable area? Sometimes dogs will retreat to lounging on your bed or the couch if they don't like where their bed is placed. A good area for your dog's bed is warm, cozy, and close to food and water. In order to keep your dog's bed a more comfortable place, consider using a washable 4Knines Dog Bed Cover. These durable covers are a great way to keep your dog bed free of moisture and odor, which helps your dog bed last even longer!

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
