Hot dogs happier
Dog owners are being urged to make sure their pooch stays warm during the winter months.
SPCA national chief executive Robyn Kippenberger says dogs need a toasty place to sleep, just like people.
“Dogs lose body heat very rapidly and, just as with humans, a cold dog is extremely likely to be a sick and miserable dog,” she says.
Failing to provide proper shelter is an offence under the Animal Welfare Act.
