Fall is well underway and winter is right around the corner. This makes now the perfect time to get your four-legged friend ready for the bone-chilling weather ahead. After all, we humans aren’t the only ones who need extra layers and cozy blankets to survive winter in Chicago. Here are our top five winter essentials for keeping your dog happy and healthy as we prepare for yet another season of ice and snow.

Luxury Cozy Cave Dog Bed If your dog is anything like mine, he loves burrowing under the covers to give him an extra sense of security. This unique dog bed allows your pup to do just that! The Sherpa interior fabric will keep him toasty warm all winter long.

Paw Balm The winter elements can be brutal on your dog’s paws. Keep your pup’s tender foot pads protected from ice, salt, and snow by applying an all-natural paw balm before going on winter walks. This one from OnlyNaturalPet.com moisturizes your dog’s paws and makes them feel good fast.

Field Coat for Dogs When the temperature dips below freezing, it’s important to give your pup an extra layer of protection against the frigid winter air. The Field Coat for Dogs from L.L. Bean is insulated for extra warmth and comes with a snap pocket on the back for holding treats or clean-up bags.

Antler Chew To prevent boredom this winter, invest in a long-lasting chew toy that will keep your pup entertained and challenged. Antler chews are extremely durable and will last weeks or more. Remember: Always supervise your dog while she’s chewing in order to prevent choking.

Snuggle Safe Pet Bed Heating Pad Allow your pup to snuggle up in safety with a microwaveable heating pad. The non-toxic thermapol compound inside the Snuggle Safe Pet Bed Heating Pad retains heat for up to 10 hours without the use of dangerous electrical wires. Simply heat in the microwave and place beneath your pup’s sleeping spot for a warm night of rest.
