Here is a solution for dogs that won't pee outside in snow? Grab a tarp from your local hardware store. You will need 4 stones, cinder blocks or anything around the house to hold down the corners. Place it on ground before it snows, close to the door you let your dog outside. Then when it slows down on snowing or even stops, you can uncover the tarp and you have fresh green grass for your puppy to poo!
Salted sidewalks will injure your pets paws. If he goes outdoors on salted surfaces, get some booties and teach him to wear them, or be sure to wash his paws when he comes in.
Editor's Note: Here's what the Humane Society has to say: "De-icing salts used to melt snow and ice are paw irritants that can be poisonous if licked off. Paws should be washed and dried as soon as the animal comes in from the snow. Other options include doggie boots with Velcro straps to protect Fido's feet, and making cats indoor pets."
