Dogs, cats and other animals are not immune to the cold as may be a misconception because of their fur coats.
By taking a few precautions and using common sense, pet owners can keep their dogs safe this winter.
Jenn Vallimont, a recreational dog musher residing in Kersey, has vast experience with caring for dogs in cold weather.
She also draws on her training in animal science, which she earned a masters degree in from Penn State University, to focus on nutrition, behavior, physiology and much more with her dog team.

MT. JEWETT â€“ Plans have been discussed for years to convert the defunct Knox and Kane Railroad corridor into recreational trails.
And, as long as there have been plans, there has been opposition-- especially from property-owners along the 73.8-mile route from Clarion County to the Kinzua Bridge State Park near Mt. Jewett.
