Your pet needs a warm, quiet place to rest, away from all drafts and off the floor.
Short haired dogs prefer to sleep on beds while long haired dogs sometimes do not prefer the same. Do not be disappointed if your dog rejects the bed you make for him and prefers to sleep on the floor instead.
You may wish to buy a dog bed, or make one out of a wooden box. Place a clean blanket or pillow inside the bed.
Wash the dog's bedding often. This helps to avoid the breeding of unwanted parasites and ensures hygiene for you and your dog.
If your dog will be spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure he has access to shade and plenty of cool water in hot weather, and a warm, dry, covered shelter when it's cold.
