Experiment with people proves outside now is too cold for dogs overnight

Saginaw County Animal Control reported on a January 12 experiment designed to see what dogs experienced when staying out in shelters overnight in 11 degree temperatures.

So some of their officers volunteered to stay out in those conditions. The bottom line is that it was too cold for the officers. Some were not able to endure, even though they had blankets. One officer found that his core body temperature had dropped to 95.6 degree, which the report said is just above levels of hypothermia.

What should you do to help care for your dog in this sort of extreme cold weather?
