Q. He hates the cold and is holding back from using the restroom until he just can't hold it anymore. Is there anything you can suggest that might help

A. I'd highly suggest investing in a dog coat or jacket. Ruffwear and Outward Hound make great products that are easy to put on and are very warm. You can also invest in booties if your dog really doesn't like the cold ground.
