Pets in Finland


I was asking my self what kind of pets do you have in Finland and Google didn't give me the answer, so I decide to ask...

What pet do you have or what's the most common animal that Finnish people adopt?

Do you need special cares 'cause of the cold??

Thanks!

Well I do know that the Hotel Presidentti in Helsinki allows dogs during the winter. I know this because I was woken up twice at 6am by dogs howling in the room above me.

Many people have cats and dogs. Also rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, domestic rats, some may have corn mice or gerbils.

Depending on where the people live, the cats and dogs can be indoor or outdoor. I know people who keep their dogs outside year round, but they have their own doghouse. Some people consider their dogs as family members, so they stay indoors and just get walked outside. There are some small breeds that need special attention in the winter time, but otherwise there isn't anything special to the Finnish climate.

Not sure if this answered your question, so let me know if you want to know more in specific.

I don't know if you were expecting Finns would have some exotic animal as a pet, like raindeers or so but someone already listed the most common pets, no matter dogs and cats are the most popular...

Well yes, you have to take special care of your pet during winter time, my doggy "Aku" has his own rain coat and a snow coat that really keeps him warm when we are walking around, below zero. He really enjoys to jump on the snow... well when temperatures are going below -10 -15 degrees it's no fun anymore for him, so he only wants to go outside to do what he has to do and go back immediately to warm home...

I was not thinking about exotic pets, I was actually asking if "common" animals can survive with the cold... I didn't know it, so I'd need to ask...
