Greetings. We live in northeast Pa. where it can get cold and snowy. Both my boxers love to play in the snow. I do not leave them out more then 1/2 hour at a time though and we do have an igloo box filled with straw, in their playyard, should they want to get it out of weather. They like snow much, much better then rain. When it rains I practically have to give them a push out the door and they they try to stand under my umbrella.
