This is my first winter with a spoo, is there a remedy for keeping the snow from balling all over her? Three hour hike and I think she gained 2 pounds of snow. The snowballs don't seem to bother her until we come inside. Shorter runs brush out but after today it was like pulling burrs. I saw pictures of some coats but I don't think they would work very well in the woods, I'm afraid it would get snagged in the brush. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thats from both of us.

What lovely pictures of snow poodles! I hope you are all warm and comfy. Please be safe as you venture out.

My other 2 dogs are part Wiermaraner and one has no undercoat so I monitor them constantly to make sure they are moving enough to stay warm and check feet. The spoo is in a long clip, no bare toes or face because we are outside often and live in northern VT. The snow stays on the outside of her coat, she is dry underneath. She is only bothered by the snow when she come inside, as she is when she finds as burdock stuck to her coat. She comes to me to have it removed. Miss Priss!
