Spending time outdoors in the winter is an incredible way for you and your outdoorsy dog, to get a lot of pure air and training. However, there are many risks that come with the cold and the icy weather.
Even though winter offers a lot of outdoors activities, for dogs and dog owners alike, you must ensure you’re focused protection first, to avoid what had happened to these owners, who allowed their dog to run off leash when it only to fall into a creek that had frozen over.
They immediately called the fire department for help, firefighters from the Swift Current Fire Department in Saskatchewan, Canada, run out to rescue the poor pooch.
The Fire Department Chief is now using this as an example to warn people and owners of the dangers that these bodies of water pose to pets and children during the winter months.
