I have a 15 week old labernese (he is completely gorgeous by the way) but a total wuss about the cold weather. We had such a lovely couple of days out with the sun this week, but today it rained and he was back to shivering on the door step and staring at me like I was the worlds meanest person.
He literally has to be dragged out the house on a cold day, despite having long hair and supposedly being descended from a breed that lived happily and worked happily in the swiss mountains
Get him a waterproof dog coat, my staff is the biggest wuss ever when it comes to the weather, as a puppy she would stand shivering pathetically in the rain for 15 mins, come back inside and wee within a foot of the door. Drove me nuts until I worked out she needed a jacket. She will still hold it 12 hours in bad weather now and she's 2!
We got our gorgeous new puppy on monday[bichon frise]
He is adorable...we are doing well with toilet training [thanks to this topic]i take him out on waking after meals after play on way back from school etc...but yesterday and this morning it has been vile weather[we are on a scottish island known for wind] raining and windy....and he hates it.I stayed out with him 15 minutes yesterday and he was really really crying and shaking but I knew he needed a poo[caught him just about too.. but when i took him out he stopped
he was soo stressed out he was shaking and just went to sleep...
the weather calmed down and then we went out at 11,1.30 and 4 [3wees and 1 poo]
so this morning weather rubbish again ..but take him out..he does a wee ..but then nothing so we come in....and he promptly goes into squat position ..so i pick him up again ..and we go through exactly the same as last night...no poo...poor stressed puppy who i dried off and cuddled and put in his bed covered in his blanket an he still there an hour later....
i know this is long ...but am i being cruel..i really want to get this right..
