What do you do with your pets when the temperature gets cold? When the temp gets in the lower teens I will bring the dogs into the basement at night and put them in a dog box and back outside for the day. My dog pen has a roof on it and I have placed metal and plywood on the north and west sides of the pen. When the temp gets much colder (0 degrees) I will bring them in at night and let them out first thing in the morning for about an hour then bring them back inside. I don't allow them in the house just the basement in a dog box. What do you do? Is there anything else you do to help them out? Thanks.
