The do make dog wetsuits.
Oscar has been swimming in the fall and winter here in BC (which I think is not quite as cold) in the ocean and lakes, he starts screaming at the toy in the water when he doesn't want to go in any more, I have him go in to get it and then we stop.
When I used to take Oscar regularly, and as soon as we were done I'd towel him off and wrap him a blanket in the car, with the heat on. We did get weird stuff like sitting and then peeing and pooping at the same time
I think it was a combination of the cold and the fact that he loses his brain when we get to the water and then again when the water Kongs come out.
I'd think if you have a couple thick towels and he isn't spending a lot of time in the water then he shouldn't be too too bad
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
