Just remember that when taking your dog out in winter is not the same as a walk in the local fields. Some great tips here in the article above. I was out yesterday with Islay my friends wee Collie she loved the beach and the forest at Findhorn on the coast . She is a great hill dog well used to the mountains being brought up on the hills. She is very well behaved and a joy to be with.
We had some soup at the Captains Table in Findhorn they had a Dog Menu. Things have changed since I had a dog.
Look after your dog and like you a dog has to be trained to go out in the hills get used to the weather and travel safely especially in winter.
