Winter is a wonderful time to be outside with your dog. Many dogs love running through the snow and are excited to partake in a variety of outdoor activities despite the chilly temperatures. Meet 5 Dogs who are ready for anything when it comes to winter fun and learn how they make the most of the season.
Lilah from @mountain_cow & @photocait
Lilah is a rescue dog living in New Hampshire and had never seen snow until last year. She quickly became a snow-loving dog! Her favorite thing to do in the winter is go hiking in the White Mountains, especially after a storm. She bounds through the fresh snow with a big smile on her face. She also enjoys skiing in the back country with her human, Cait, a talented photographer. Cait can extend Lilah’s time outside by toweling her off on long hikes or dressing her in a jacket or sweater to keep warm on the way down.
Asher from @asher_stout_harrington
Asher Stout Harrington, “Ash” for short, is a tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi who loves winter. His favorite activities include rolling around in the snow and sliding across the ground using his body as a sled! He’s happy to spend countless hours outside in the colder months and relies on his thick hair and his Kurgo loft jacket to keep him warm. He lives with his family in Oregon and enjoys adventuring around the Mount Hood National Forest area for camping and hiking trips throughout the year.
Squall from @sr_drummond
Squall is a winter-loving 4-year-old Australian Shepherd who can be spotted adventuring around the White Mountains of New Hampshire. He has summited Mount Washington more times than his humans can count. He loves hiking year-round. His fluffy coat keeps him nice and warm, and he would sleep outside if permitted to! The chilly temperatures don’t slow him down a bit, and he enjoys accompanying his human along on nordic and alpine skiing outings.
Winnie from @life.with.winnie
Winnie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her humans. Her favorite winter activity is snowshoeing, but eating snow is a close second! Her favorite spot to snowshoe is Mt. Baker, Washington. She recently moved to Mt. Hood, Oregon, and reports that the snow there is pretty tasty too! She greets each day with boundless energy and enthusiasm, but when her zoomies have all been exhausted in the mountains, she loves to come home and cuddle with her humans.
Riley from @adventures_with_riley
Riley is a Golden Retriever from Seattle, Washington who is lucky to have the best of both worlds when it comes to winter. He loves rolling, jumping, and bouncing through the snow when he is up in the mountains with his human. Like most dogs, he loves eating snow too! When he’s not in the mountains, he enjoys going to the beach and on hikes. He likes to take runs through the streets of Seattle with his human year-round. As you can see, Riley is also a very stylish winter dog!
