The typical snow dogs are obviously better suited to winter temperatures and weather conditions. It is mainly the smooth and short-haired dogs, but also the nude dogs, which can be very cold in the winter. But do not forget the very small dog breeds , sometimes they walk with their tummy through the wet grass or the cold snow. You can imagine that it is not always warm and pleasant. Do not let your dog stand, sit or lie outside for a long time while walking. But make sure your dog is in good motion when he is outside.
