Can rain hurt dogs ears?

With the recent media interest in lack of exercise for dogs, if raining at the only time you can take the dog out, do you have to be mindful that the rain will hurt their ears? (I go out whatever the weather)


Hi Emma, I exercise my dog in the rain all the time and he loves it!

There is no need to worry about the rain hurting his ears or any other part of his anatomy, he will be fine and will benefit so much more from the exercise. A

s long as you towel him off and keep him warm once back home he will be fine.

Best wishes
