A great coat 

Your dog gets cold on winter walks just like you, so investing in a great coat for your pooch, like The Alpine Extreme Weather Puffer Coat, is a good plan. This coat is perfect for all your dog's outdoor adventures. It's affordable and well made with a waterproof exterior, thick fleece lining and fiber insulation. This coat comes in many sizes to ensure a perfect fit for your pooch.

Ear protection

Your dog's ears are highly sensitive to cold and often exposed to the elements in the winter. Luckily for your pup, the Snood Winter Ear Protector exists. It's the ultimate winter accessory for your dog as it will add warmth to any winter coat. The Snood protects your dog's ears from wind chill and cold. It's basically an adorable and warm fleece hood. It will keep your dog's ears from getting cold or frostbitten.  Best of all, it's adjustable thanks to its two elastic drawstrings.

Good dog boots

Your dog doesn't like walking barefoot in winter any more than you do. Protect your pet's tender tootsies with a good pair of booties, like these QUMY Dog Boots, this winter. These boots are waterproof with a well-made and rugged sole that will keep your dog warm and dry when the weather is anything but.

A warm and cozy bed

Many pet owners overlook the need for a warm and cozy bed for their dog in their home. Your pup can get cold on your bare floor, so a dedicated cozy dog bed is a must in the winter months. There are a lot of great options out there. We recommend a self-heating dog bed like the Aspen Pet Self-Warming Bed which is designed to keep your pet warm thanks to a hidden layer of heat-reflective material inside its mattress.

Timbercreek hopes you enjoy this winter with your pup. Stay warm!
