Keep Your Dog’s Paws Warm During Winter Walks!

It’s been a long winter!  Has the snowy weather preventing you from walking your dog as much as she would like?  Dogs that spend less time outide during the winter may become lethargic – or, in some cases, hyperactive.

No need to skimp on winter walks when you can get your dog pet boots!  The boots will prevent your dog’s paws from getting frostbit.  Dog’s paws are most susceptible to frostbite because of the constant contact with the snow.  You may notice if your dog’s paws become frostbitten if their pads change form its normal color to pale or gray.  Their paws will be cold and hard to the touch.  If you suspect frostbite, take your dog quickly to a warm location and soak the affected area in lukewarm water for about 20 minutes.  Always contact your veterinarian for further instructions.

Not only do pet boots keep your dog’s feet warm, but it also protects their paws from the harsh salts.  The salts used to melt ice and snow can get stuck in dog’s pads and cause irritation.

There are many varieties of pet boots available.  My dog’s favorite boots are Extreme All-Weather Dog Boots, pictured at right.  These boots are durable and waterproof, perfect for keeping my dog’s paws warm and dry.  There is also a suede-leather sole that helps with traction.  The Velcro strap ensures the boot will not fall off.  This boot comes in many sizes, from XXXS to XL – perfect for any size dog!

With these boots your pet can look forward to many walks this winter, giving you and your pet the exercise you need!

Winter Fun for Your Dog

Keeping your dog active in the winter can be a challenge when the weather gets cold and messy.  It is important for your dog’s mental and physical well-being to exercise your dog all year long.  When taking your dog outside for a walk, it is a good idea to choose a day that is sunny and not bitter cold.  It is also a good idea to use winter gear for your dog for those cold winter days.  Here are some fun activities that you can do with your dog on a winter day:

  • Take your dog for a brisk walk.  When you are your dog are moving at a steady pace, you can keep your body temperature up and won’t feel the cold as much.  Use a retractable leash to keep a tight rein on your dog and prevent him or her from stopping to sniff every minute.  A great retractable leash to use is the Flexi Elegance Retractable Dog Leash by Flexi USA.
  • Play a game of catch.  If your dog loves to play ball, take your game outdoors for lots of fun.  Use a bright colored ball that is easy to see and one that is made of a soft, waterproof material that is easy on your dog’s mouth.  One of my favorite dog balls is the Zoink Throw N Glow Ball.  This fun, colorful ball is easy to spot in the grass or snow and even glows in the dark for nighttime fun with your dog.
  • Don’t forget to snuggle.  After having some fun with your dog outdoors, spend some quality time snuggling together on the couch.  The Snuggie For Dogs is the perfect blanket for your dog to wear and stay warm in.  This wearable dog blanket is made of soft cozy fleece and coordinates with the adult snuggie.  Perfect for any winter night!
