|When we take our dogs out for a walk in the winter, we’re subjecting their little paws to salt, chemical ice melters, bad weather auto fluids such as anti-freeze, and the snow and ice themselves. There are many different types of dog booties available. Here’s a quick rundown:
1. Disposable Dog Boots – these pull on and are usually made of rubber. There is a natural rubber alternative as well. 2. Neoprene Dog Boots – these have a neoprene top and rubber bottom. They are usually zip-ups. 3. Velcro Dog Boots – these often have a non-skid vinyl sole with a fleece lining. They are secured with velcro fasteners at the top.
Consider ease of putting boots on, how well they stay on, if the material is comfortable and always measure for them accurately.
