Veterinarians and dog experts support the idea of dogs wearing dog snow boots during the winter months to protect from cold, rain, snow, and nasty chemicals on the roads. Even after the snow has melted, salt and chemicals that were used to de-ice the roads are left behind and are very harmful as they absorb through the pads into the dog’s system. Don't take your dog out without protecting his feet this season. When the winter months come along and the snow starts to fall, your dog still needs and wants his daily walk. To keep the snow from balling up in the hair on the bottom of the paws and the ice and salt from irritating paw pads, how about outfitting your best friend with practical yet stylish
dog snow boots? Add some comfort, traction and safety to your dog's wintry walks.
Why does your dog need snow boots?
Contrary to what you might think, paw-wear is more than a fashion statement for spoiled pets. Don’t let harsh winter conditions keep you and your dog indoors!
Keeps paws dry and safe from snow, ice, salt, stones, and abrasive surfaces
Ensures that hazardous chemicals used to de-ice and melt snow are kept off your dog’s feet and out of your home
Prevents snow and ice from getting built up between paw pads, avoiding discomfort and loss of traction on frozen surfaces
Avoids layers of snow getting frozen together with one another, which are hard to remove and can result in sharpened areas that can scratch or slice your dog’s feet
Keeps melting snow from dog’s feet leaving puddles and wet spots in your home

There are several methods you can use to measure your dog's paw and we highlighted the easiest and most accurate method below. Please
keep in mind that you will need to measure the entire part of the paw
that touches the floor - from the back paw pad to the edge of the
toenail. You will also want to be sure your dog's nails are trimmed to
ensure the most comfortable fit. It is best to measure your dog's paws
while your dog is standing so the paw is completely splayed. When your
dog is standing you will get a wider measurement (more accurate) than
when your dog is laying or sitting.
Place your dog's paw on a blank piece of paper and mark the front & back of the paw (include toenail) for length measurement. Measure the distance between the lines. Do the same on the left and right sides of the paw for width measurement. Do not trace the paw.
Size does matter. Incorrectly sized dog boots will not be comfortable or
perform well. We have a very simple 2 step sizing process. *Every
product page on the website has a specific size chart corresponding to
that particular dog shoe.* Most product pages also include a chart your
dog can stand to help you pick the right size. Please set ACTUAL SIZE or
100% setting for your printer. The actual dimensions the paw prints
should measure are listed on the images. It is necessary to measure the
paper to make sure it printed accurately. If your dog’s shoe size falls
in between two different sizes, choose the larger of the two to be sure
the boots aren’t too tight or uncomfortable.
