Booties for Dogs

Pampered Pals: Booties For Dogs

Winters in San Francisco are pretty mild, so North can still enjoy outside playtime . . . even in December. But, for many of you, winter means snow, ice, and fewer chances for outdoor recreation.

If you venture out into the slushy mess with your pup, be aware of the dangers that come with the season. Snow can cause dogs to lose their scent – and their way home – if you get separated. It's also an opportunity to ingest salt or antifreeze that may have been on the road when Fido licks his paws after your nature escape. One way to combat
this danger
is to outfit your furry friend with booties.

Not just for fashionable companions anymore, booties can help prevent icy cuts that can lead to infections, and from picking up poisonous liquids that he may try to taste later! These Wool Booties are sure to be Fab approved and will keep your doggie's paws safe. To see a few more styles,

Feh. We bought some for our Boxer to protect her feet from the rock salt on the pavement, but she spazzes and eats them off her feet.

likethedirection, my dog Ozzie has been wearing booties for 2 years when we go bicycling together. The Ruff Wear Granite Gear boots have absolutely saved her paws from broken glass and rough asphalt, especially after a few miles running alongside my bike! She loves her booties after she starts running—if she's not wearing them she doesn't want to run for more than a few blocks, but if she is, she'll run for miles. That said though, she STILL does the high prancing goofiness when she first puts them on, especially if she's inside the house. I recommend getting your pup outside ASAP after you put them on, and your pup will soon realize that the boots are friend, not foe. Good luck!

I wanted to get Bailey some, but he's very weird about his paws. For example, he won't let anyone touch them, unless your clipping his nails, and he hates anything on them. I don't think he'd like them very much.

We have some from RuffWear for our miniature schnauzer and he kind of acts funny when we first put them on. The key is to start the walk right after you put the boots on the dog. Our guy has started to associate the boots with a walk which he loves!

I just bought some boots for my dog and I feel bad making him wear them! He lifts his feet so far off the ground that he falls over and he's almost afraid to walk. I feel like I'm torturing him. So far I've just been putting them on for a few minutes at a time and making him walk to me for little treats. Will he eventually get over it and walk normally? Thanks in advance for any advice!
