An Article in the Moscow News

"Dogs need to go for daily walks-and because Moscow's sub-zero temperatures and sidewalks may be covered in ice or harmful chemicals to melt it, warm clothing and even shoes for dogs become not only practical but also humane."
"In temperatures of minus 15 degrees Celsius or below, it is imperative to put coats on dogs." Said Valeria Shishmaryova, a veterinarian at the Movet Clinic in western Moscow. When the weather is not that cold, Shishmaryova said, dog owners should take two factors into account: dog breed and dogs' age.
