Top 5 Best Summer Dog Booties
If your dog is like most dogs, he or she probably spends time outdoors either alone or by your side. Does your pal seem to enjoy the outdoors, or does he stand there panting nonstop? The dog might need some protection from the hot weather. If you can imagine spending any time in the hot sun with a heavy coat or walking barefoot on hot concrete, you can imagine what it’s like for dogs. Most dogs are affected by hot weather regardless of size or breed, but some are affected more than others. A dog’s feet can be extremely sensitive to hot weather. Alldogboots.com offers a great selection of summer wear and booties for your four-legged buddy.
Tips For Buying Booties For Your Dog
Your dog’s paws come in contact with almost everything they come in contact with outdoors, whether it’s lawn care chemicals, pollutants, sharp gravel or hot summer roads. Dog booties can offer protection for the dog’s paws and keep them safe from harmful elements. Your dog may not be too thrilled about wearing boots at first and will probably walk funny at first. However, once the dog gets used to the booties, he or she will barely notice them.
The best way to make the dog as comfortable as soon as possible is to make sure you get the best possible fit. Every manufacturer will provide recommendations on how to measure your dog’s feet. Follow these instructions, and you should do fine. Getting the dog the wrong size booties can make the dog uncomfortable or hurt the dog’s feet. If the dog is uncomfortable, he or she might not be too willing to wear them or may try to chew them off. When they’re a good fit, the “wearing in” period goes quickly, and your dog may come to love them.
