Rain, Hail, Sleet or Snow - The Dog Must Be Walked!

My dogs, being hunting dogs, are energetic and must be walked, run, and play with other dogs. Cody needs to sniff and pee on everything and Copper needs to run.

In the very mild winter of Southern California, this is rarely a problem except when it rains. The only way Cody takes care of business is if he is walked. So I bundle up in my property manager's rain coat and get soaked while he thoroughly enjoys himself. Copper just doesn't care except he really likes mud.

So when it rains or snows, what behaviors do your dogs have and how does it differ from sunny weather. They are all so different.

My grand dog is a true water lover! So when it rains and there are puddles she finds every single one, looks you in the eye, then rolls!

I have a big fenced back yard but walks are much more interesting!! We have a doggie door for them to come and go as they need but my dogs are cold natured and will pee in the floor rather than go out in the rain to do their business.
