Some dogs love nothing more than going out for walks in the snow or running through muddy puddles! Other breeds, on the contrary, will categorically refuse to go outside if it’s a little windy or if there’s a light shower.
Check out the gallery above to see which dogs you’ll struggle to keep in a cold climate.
What is a cold averse dog?
Cold averse dogs are dogs who will start to feel cold a lot quicker than you would expect. These dogs could be senior dogs, dogs with chronic illnesses, or puppies! However, some breeds are considered cold averse simply because they don’t have a thick double coat to protect them from bad weather.
What is the most cold resistant dog?
There’s not one right answer to this question. Many double-coated breeds do well in cold weather. However, if we had to pick one, we’d say Siberian Huskies are pretty well-adapted to cold weather. In Siberia, Huskies were originally used as sled dogs and spent most of their time living outdoors, despite the snow and windchill. It is said that Huskies can withstand temperatures of up to -59°C! Despite this, they’d much rather live inside with their human family.
