The dogs have to be supported by temperatures as low as 25 degrees Celsius and a lot of snow so that they survive this difficult time well. Water in the troughs freezes, the youngest are fed warm meals of oatmeal and chicken stock if possible, so that they sometimes have something warm in their stomach. Straw is regularly brought into the dog houses so that the dogs can lie down warm in these huts.
Now before the beginning of winter the dogs must be fed with high-quality food, so that they can form also appropriate winter fur. Additional food supplements such as salmon oil are also very important. In addition, we try to equip all kennels in all shelters throughout the year with enough huts and roofs to provide some protection. But there is still a lot missing!
It is our aim to roof all kennels and to provide all dogs with a hut and good food. In order to feed all dogs regularly and to replace frozen water we also need enough workers for this very hard work, especially in winter. There is still a lot of room for improvement here.
