    Dog Boots

    Most puppies do not tolerate dog boots on their paws, but during the winter, rough ground conditions can take their toll on a dog’s feet. Most owners would scoff at the idea of dog boots, leaving them instead for the spoilt pups of celebrities. However, boots for dogs do have their uses.

    Dog Boots Protect Against Winter Freeze

    Some say that dog boots are not only cute and comfortable (although our pets have not been willing to comment on this matter...), but useful too. Small breeds kept in a warm flat can hardly bear the winter cold, unlike other hardened dogs used to living in harsh circumstances. Gritted roads can easily damage the soft, sensitive paws of small-sized barefoot dogs. Some dogs may be thankful for soft dog boots for this reason.

    Do not be surprised if your pet will not be willing to move an inch in the padded, waterproof little boots. There is not much you can do in this case, and you will have to start your winter walks without any protective clothing for the dog.
