Essential protection in winter conditions and ideal complement to the coats.
Dog boots are products that have more evolved in recent years, especially those for sports activities and high performance, but are also very important all those types of footwear suited to protect their paws and pads in any situation.
They are ideal for coats of which I spoke in the last week article. They are also essential in situations where the ground can present hazards either because it is too cold, hot -in summer – or because they can do damage or cuts by stones, sticks and even crystals. With this model boot, your dog’s paws are highly protected and have great grip. This boot is worn by K9 dogs.
The dogs accompany us on a wide range of activities such as hunting, trekking, hiking, rescue, mushing and even his own rehabilitation. There are boots to cover each of the specific needs of the dog.
Certainly there are dog breeds that can withstand the cold better than any human being, but always think about your overall health and wellness by protecting and preventing possible illnesses and discomfort caused by snow, rain and even frozen ground by it is difficult to walk. Also, avoid unnecessary loss of heat to your dog is always advisable to protect your legs especially his pads.

Other situations where the boots are important for dogs: Any outdoor activity for any terrain. Where they serve as protection against the broken or bad quality asphalt, stones, rocks, hot summer pavement in areas such as asphalt, dirt or sand.
Play an important role on slippery surfaces, where it is necessary to increase traction. As well as to improve traction in older dogs, injured or with orthopedic problems.
It is very important that in winter both you and your dog will steer away from ponds or icy surface water. Ice is a serious danger. It seems firm but is not. If the dog falls and even you could drown trying to save him. Not an alarmist situation that I explained some cases all the years pass as that I´ve just described. Therefore, does not encourage your dog to play on the ice, in addition to the terrible situation that I have described to you, it can cause sprains and strains to him and to you.
But there is only one reason purely prevention, it is these boots in addition to being designed with the latest techniques to make them as effective as possible and are also pretty comfortable.

If your dog does not wear boots for dogs, make sure to clean their paws salt and chemicals to remove snow after each ride. The chemicals may be toxic and salt become an irritant. You must keep the foot pads in perfect condition:
- The Fur around them should be well trimmed to avoid snowballs or ice remain there after the walk.
- Check That there is no cuts, cracks or any foreign debris such as twigs or stones or crystals.

You should avoid sticky fingerprints that your dog can go leaving through the house. To do this, nothing better than indoor socks and boots that will be more convenient and comfortable than outdoor and he will accept more easily.
