I'd need to know a bit more about your winter hiking conditions and duration. If you're erring on the side of active, I'd suggest a Labrador. If you're doing colder and shorter, something like a Bernesse Mountain Dog would do amazing. I love running with my Labrador since she can handle heat decently (I don't run with her when it's very hot), she's handle ...

I did this with my dog the other day. He seemed to quite enjoy the experience...It was much warmer in the bag than out.

As far as I can tell dog life jackets do not have different ratings as for human life jackets.

The worse that will happen is that your, or both, dogs will have to be leashed. I honestly don't see how this should be a community question because every campground, resort, or just someone's ...

Well, if one dog has to be tied up and they are worried about them being too boisterous, why not have yours tied up? In most campsites in England (I know it is different where you are) dogs have to be on leads and tied up at all times. If you plan on future trips with your friends, eventually she will have to go. If you follow the always on a lead rule to ...

Leaving a dog alone in an apartment for this length of time would be neglectful, even if you were able to provide enough food and water. Your girlfriend's logic doesn't make sense to me. Just having your dog there doesn't imply that the other dog has to be tied up. I would bring a long rope for your own dog and evaluate the situation once you get there in ...
