Concerns for a south florida GSD vacationing in the snow

by brian

We live in central Florida. I plan on taking my 3 year old female gsd to my farm in ky for a few days. She is in good health and very active.

However, there are several inches of snow on the ground (6-8) and temperatures will be below 30. We will be outdoors for extended periods of time 5-6 hours.

Do I need to be concerned about her staying warm or providing protection for her feet? Any other concerns that I should be prepared for?
