Does my dog really need booties? Keeping your dog's feet in good shape is very important to the working canine athlete. Booties do the trick and can prevent a whole lot of injuries that can be very time consuming to heal. For Sled Dogs or any Dogs running on snow trails the best booties are the simplest, cloth boots with a stretch Velcro closure at the top like our Standard or Finish Top Booties, they stay on well and go on easily after some practice. Though many dogs have "good feet", there are conditions that may warrant the use of booties such as extreme cold temperatures or deep snow. Making a habit of looking at your dog's feet is worth the time, pull the pads apart and look at the skin on the inside, this is where a dog can develop fissures that are very painful. If there are wounds it then becomes necessary to use various ointments like our Mushers FirstAid, Web-Med or Emu Oil Wound Salve on them to get them healed. Booties are also recommended in this situation to keep the wounds from getting worse and enhancing the effectiveness of these ointments. For dogs training on gravel roads before snow or dogs walking on city streets in the winter, something like our Tough Boots will last longer and is water resistant which prevents injury from salted streets.
