Pup Products for Winter Fun
Heading out for fun in the snow shouldn’t mean leaving your furry friends hibernating at home. Fortunately, Colorado-owned Chow Down Pet Supplies offers top-notch products and customer service to keep your dog active and comfy in cold weather. Visit their Grand Junction or Fruita locations for high-quality food, treats, and toys made in the United States. Manager Autumn Udovitsch recommends the following items.
Papa Tatanka Bison Snacks will energize your dog along the cross-country trail. These nutritious baked treats are all-natural, sourced in the U.S., and free of grain, corn, soy, wheat, and gluten. They break easily into smaller pieces to suit all sizes.
Kurgo Loft Jackets provide warmth and visibility in several bright colors. This lightweight, reversible vest is functional for town or in the mountains.

Ruffwear Polar Trex Dog Boots are designed for warmth, traction, and protection in winter conditions. The insulated upper shell is soft, breathable, and weatherproof, while the Vibram® sole provides optimum traction on snow and frozen surfaces. A secure closure and stretch gaiter keep the snow out. Two-packs let you buy different sizes for front and back paws.
Musher’s Secret is ideal for playing in the snow without boots. Developed in Canada for use with sledding dogs, it protects paws in extreme conditions throughout the year. Made from a blend of food-grade waxes, it forms a dense-but-breathable, non-toxic barrier on your dog’s paws. Rub Musher’s Secret up in between the pads to prevent snowballing.
