Happy 2018! How do you like it so far? Or should we ask, how do your dogs and cats like it? This winter has certainly been colder than we have gotten used to around here, and you may find some of your pets don't know what to make of it. Hopefully you are keeping your cats indoors, having shorter walks for some dogs, and for those with Northern breed dogs enjoying this great Canadian winter. There is still a lot of winter left, so make sure you have all the gear you might need, such as dog boots, coats, paw balm, and LED collars or collar lights. We still have many coats in stock, and for those of you Leaf fans out there, we still have a few Maple Leaf dog coats. In this issue we will explain what happens to your dogs paws in the cold, and why it is important for many dogs to wear boots. And as always, if there is anything you would like to see us feature in one of our newsletters, please drop in or send us an email.
