When Can Puppies Go in the Snow?

I have a litter of 10 puppies that are 5 weeks old. When can they go out in the snow?

As long as it isn't so deep that they sink - they can go out now. They are so cute!

We had lab pups last winter - it can be a hassle to have them in the house - good luck!

Please ask your vet first. They should be able to answer that with a quick call. It would be a shame to let them be harmed by the snow just because you didn't know for sure. They're beautiful!

You could remove snow from an area and let them out there.

Hello. No, they cannot go in the snow. Their immune system is not fully developed yet. They need to stay warm.

I think that with them being only a month old (plus a week give or take) it's a bit too early to let them out in the snow. Also, remember to have the mother spayed ASAP.

If this is a potty issue just stock up on papers and I found out that laying down the training pad UNDER the newspapers did quite well and I would change paper quickly and could use the pad numerous times.

I think they are too small to be out there. You don't want 10 cute little dog-cicles. What a box of cuties what type are they?
