Some of us dogs voted and we agree ...boots and shoes can be awkward at first!
But our parents won’t take us outside for walks anymore without some kind of foot protection. After my $400 sticker in the paw incident attitudes changed at our house.
But we’re getting used to wearing them and you may want to consider some form of paw protection for your dogs too.
Right now, we’re using some of these soft rubber boots and we love ‘em.
There are a lot of boots for dogs out there, but most don’t fit us good.
They seem like they were made for humans to make dogs look cute and not for actual walking and playing.
It’s not cute when you can hardly walk with the dang things on!
It seems like our bigger brothers & sisters have an easier time with traditional shoes made for dogs.
But for us smaller dudes, the thick rubber bottoms don’t bend enough. It’s like walking on our tippy toes.
If we’re being honest, it sucks!
The more flexible rubber ones are a lot more flexible so wearing them is easier for me and Piper to wear.
If you can’t bring yourself to buy shoes or rubber boots, then try to wash our paws off after we come in from the outdoors ...please.
A bucket of warm water and a nice soft towel to dry us off works wonders to get the bad stuff off of our feet. Trust us ...your dogs will appreciate the extra effort you put into making them warm and toasty.
When we come in from the cold we like to bundle up in our blankets, so make sure your dog has something soft and fluffy to cuddle up in. Our favorites are these fleece blankets that are soft & warm and you can personalize them with your favorite photos.
