Dogs may not be getting the exercise they need during the winter as some owners do not want to go out in the cold and snow. Professional dog walkers go out in all weather. We gear up with multiple layers as it may be very cold in the am and then warm up. Yaktrax are great to put on your boots so you don't slip on the ice.
Dogs are loving playgroups in the new play yard. They get exercise and socialization with other dogs. We pick them up from your house, bring them to the play yard for around 3 hours (we have a shed where they can go in when cold or snow/rain), then we bring them home, all while you are at work. You come home to a happy tired pup. There are still some playgroup slots open.
