No, Miniature Pinschers certainly don’t enjoy the winter. They have short hair, and they start shivering as soon as they are outside in cold weather.
We have recently had some very cold weather here in Canada, and our MinPin still had to go outside for doing his bathroom business. I felt sorry for the little guy! We usually make him wear a little dog coat if it is very cold, which certainly helps a bit. A MinPin needs to wear a dog coat if the dog is to be outside for more than a minute, if it is very cold out.
The Miniature Pinscher will lift up one leg, if the ground is cold. That’s a hint that the dog is going to ask to come in soon. Same idea here – you can get little dog shoes to make this more comfortable for your Miniature Pinscher.
