The best winter boots for dogs

It’s true, some dog breeds are better adapted to face Quebec winters. Despite everything, you have to be sure to protect the parts of the body most susceptible to frostbite: the legs. Here are the best dog winter boots.

During a walk in cold weather, it is necessary to be attentive to the behavior of the dog in order to ensure that its comfort is optimal. In an animal, the first signs of frostbite may look like stiffness in the limbs, pain when touched, or tissue discoloration.

Once home, rinse and dry the dog’s paws to remove excess snow and salt. During the winter, it is always better to keep the coat around the legs shorter. This method prevents snow from sticking and makes cleaning easier.

Before a walk, it is possible to apply a protective balm, based on vegetable fat or in the form of wax, under the paws of dogs. While this protection can help ward off frostbite, there’s nothing quite like donning winter dog boots, socks, or slippers.

Dog boots will not only protect against frostbite, but they will also protect the pads from calcium, antifreeze products and salt that accumulates on the ground in winter.

To choose the right dog boots, you have to make sure that they mold the legs, without being too tight. Ill-fitting boots can cause injury and cut off blood circulation. You have to think about adjusting the size of the boots according to the length of the claws.

There are several types of dog boots, such as nylon, fleece or rubber. It is enough to choose the boots that suit the season and the physical activity of the dog.
