As you know, last winter wasn't the worst one we've had. We do have a neoprene vest for him, and some booties (it is hilarious to see him walk in them) But honestly, we hardly used them. He didn't even notice the cold last year when he was playing. He couldn't handle the cold if he was just standing, but he never stopped running. You can't plan on putting him outside for extra long periods during the bitter cold days. He was always up for a game of fetch, even if it was below zero. We just made it short, and dried him off when we came back in.
Sometimes if it was too cold he would stop to pee before he got to his designated "pee spot," but really most of the time it was us that din't want to go outside, not him.

We are in Utah (just south of SLC) and we got our Kaylee in the winter. Her favorite place is by the fireplace in the winter I don't know how she can stand to lay so close to it lol.

Even here in calif. where we never see a winter temp. below 46, I'm doing it in my garage just to keep the muddy dog tracks out of my house when the rain ( what little we get) comes. I think it is the best Idea I have ever read!!! Also... get your pup a warm outer garment.
and maybe some boots... check out gundog catalog for both, or ask for suggestions from the forum. It gets blistering cold in MN... be prepared. Your pup will love your for it.

Nash.the.vizsla We're in Afton, Minnesota. Our little Nash is our first Vizsla and he's 5 month old. I'm curious to see how he handles his first winter!

A third! You're a crazy man. (I'm jealous)
Hahah well one is my brothers so I technically don't own her but I still claim her as mine. We also have a springer spaniel kicking around often and she is the wildest one!

Male this time. This one is coming from a friend of mine in the Prairies.
