Cold, wet winter weather brings with it a slew of challenging walking conditions for pups on the go. Sheets of ice, rock salt and ice melt, and generally the least pleasant temperatures to be outside with no footwear. Dog boots keep your dog’s paws protected from the cold, moisture, and irritation or even chemical burns that can result from prolonged contact with non-pet-friendly ice melt products.
As a first layer of defense, grab a container of Vitamin E-rich Musher’s Secret. Just smear a layer of the waxy balm on your pup’s paw pads and let dry (it only takes a few seconds) before walking in any extreme conditions to avoid cracking, burning, and small cuts on the skin. Pair it with any of these winter wonderland-ready boots and the two of you will have no problem taking winter walkies by storm. Note: Check the size guide and measure your dog’s paws before purchasing for the best fit.
These shoes are your winter boots in miniature. A tough rubber anti-slip sole, stitched (not glued) water-resistant fabric, reflective strips, and velcro straps all work together to keep these shoes on and everything else out. They’re also useful indoors if your dog is not very confident walking on slippery floors!
When you don’t have a yard, walks are the only way your dog will get the chance for a potty break and a little exercise. Even a dog averse to the idea of wearing booties should have no problem with these sock-like shoes. Much like a balloon, Pawz boots are stretchy with thick rubber to provide a barrier against paws and the elements.
And if your dog steps in something yucky or you’d just like to try a new color, these boots are completely reusable and disposable.
We don’t go for a stroll through the snow barefoot, and we certainly don’t do it wearing boots with no socks. These Muttluks are fleece-lined to keep your pup’s feet extra toasty on long walks. They’re built with a self-tightening, reflective strap and pliable leather soles, and have a stretchy, sock-like cuff that you can roll up or down to your liking. Everyone loves a good knee-high boot.
You dog won’t have trouble gripping even the slipperiest of surfaces with these boots. The rugged anti-skid soles provide excellent traction and are completely puddle-proof. Two adjustable straps on each boot ensure little paws won’t slip out while wearing the correct size, and the wide opening makes putting them on much less of a hassle. Perfect for squirmy pups!
These booties were built for long hikes in the woods, romps in the snow, and walks on hot asphalt and ice melt alike. Two velcro straps keep your dog’s paws securely inside, and the tough nylon fabric and recycled tire soles keep dirt and moisture out.
