Most of us go out of our way to keep our dogs safe, but when it comes to traveling in the car, it's not that common to take measures to protect your furry bestie. However, in the event of an accident, the physics of momentum work exactly the same on dogs as they do on people.

Let's face it. Winter in Canada is rough. It's rough for us, and it's tough on our dogs. But while some dogs have no problem getting geared up with coats, boots and other cold weather stuff, there are some who flat our refuse. Fortunately, when it comes to foot protection, you've got other options.

Best Tool for Removing Undercoat

When your dog's undercoat builds up, it can also make them itchy and uncomfortable. But fortunately, there are some ways to control it.
