    What are some ways to tell how old a dog is?

    A:

    A person can tell how old a dog is by looking at the dog's teeth, which means that it is easier to tell a puppy's age than it is to tell an adult dog's age. When looking at the puppy or dog's mouth, look at the way that the teeth are forming and how many of them are there.

    When is it too cold to leave a dog outside?

    A:

    It is too cold for a dog to be outside if the temperature would be uncomfortable for a person to be outside for the same amount of time. The fur of a dog provides only a light layer of protection against the elements, and the wind chill makes it feel even colder to a dog left outdoors. A dog's ability to adjust to cold temperatures also depends on other factors, like the dog's amount of body fat, general health, activity level and age.
