Default New to Forums, Boxers in snow?

Hi, i'm new to this forum, and this is my first forum in general. I have a white boxer pup at 10 months old, and I live in PA. With the winter here now, I am concerned with her paws walking in the snow, and through the salt on the roads, as with the first snow today, i found out she loves it.

I was wondering if any one had experience with dog booties, or in your opinions if they would be needed for protection against the snow and salt? If so, any recommendations as to which bootie works the best?

Also, i'd love to put a picture of her up, just haven't figured out how to yet.

Thank you

Go check out thedogsoutdoors.com and check out their boots. He has a video of his male running and playing with this one boot and they look excellent. Also you can use mushers wax on her feet to help protect them. I live in texas so snow isn't an issue. LOL

And hello and welcome from texas

Hey mom2jax&bay, your profile says you live in east Houston. I didnt know that, I thought you lived out in central Texas. I live in Crosby on lake Houston.

Here in North Dakota mt 13 week old Boxer HATES the snow and cold. The 1st 2 weeks it made house training tough, but now he stands at the steps when he has to go, we go out and he does his business in about 30 seconds and we are back in the house.

I have thinking about getting some booties for him too. I want to take him on short walks and whatnot to keep him active in the winter, but they are about $50/4 at the local pet stores for decent ones and he will outgrow them in no-time.

Hi & Welcome also from TX. I would love to find boots/foot coverings that fit my girls for when they are outside & it's muddy. Can't wait to see some pics of your pup. What part of PA. I was born & raised in SW PA.

Psst Katie...I'm the one in Central TX.

We have snow here and I tried Pawz on my girls. I bought the purple ones. I picked them up at walmart. They look like balloons but are thicker.

It takes two people to put them on but protects their paws. The first time the wigged out with them on. Until we went outside. Once we hit the snow they didnt notice them on. Now they dont spaz out when they are on, took a few times wearing them for that to happen. Now they know its snow-fun when i ask them to sit after putting their coats on. I think in a few days it just might be easier and only need one person to put them on.

Im definately going to try to get real boots for them since they are tolerating the Pawz so well.

I tried booties on my two and neither one of them was having it. My Shepherd ripped em off and my Boxer acts like he's dying. LOL. I know lots of people they work for though! My Boxer HATES the cold and snow and my Shepherd LOVES the snow She's never had any issues with her feet. If we've been walking on salt, i just make sure to clean them really good when we get home.

Wyatt loves the snow! What part of pa? I'm from SWPA. I didn't give it much thought about Jim being out there and more worried a out him eating salt than it being on his paws! I would say just wipe his feet when he comes back into the house. Bag balm would work, but I think it's kind of greasy.
