I don't think the bigger ponds will be completely frozen over Monday morning. Smaller ponds maybe. I'm planning on going out Monday morning. I've got a 2 year old dog who I'll be taking who has never hunted in those temps or ice.

In general she handles the cold well, great coat, never had any issues in 25-35 degree temps. She'll have a vest on.

Any tips on keeping her safe?

If the beaver was ever right, nobody in Texas would’ve shot a duck since 2009

Mine has been in single digits a few times with no problems. Just gotta make sure she has a dry spot to sit, not on snow or ice.

No problems with cold, but I do put a vest on the Pudelpointer when it's real cold. I think the cold hurts me worse than him.

Be careful with your dogs out there in the ice... many years ago I was hunting in Eudora, AR and my dog sliced his front leg up really bad. I bandaged him up and had to cut a good hunt short because of it. Once ice gets thick enough, it’s extremy sharp when it breaks. I won’t hunt a dog in those conditions any longer as a result of that experience. IMO, it’s Just not worth it.
