Protecting Pups’ Paws is a Priority

Zack & Zoey Rainboots

With 2011 coming in with a snowy vengeance, we must be mindful that our dogs need to go out regardless and we can protect their paws from the salt that is thrown to prevent icing. Below are my and Kenny’s top picks that not only look great, but can keep your pups paws safe outside. Just a quick note – it may take your dog a few outings before they are completely used to wearing any sort of footwear, so try putting them on in the house a few times, before going outside.

Dog boots by Zack and Zoey are my faves as they are insulated and have velcro wrapping so that you can adjust accordingly around the leg. Be sure to measure your dog’s paw “across” the pad, if you aren’t able to have them with you; as most footwear (along with most clothing) is non-refundable. Pricing starts around $25 and they come in great color combinations that can easily match your dog’s existing wardrobe. Kenny has them in camouflage green.

Pawz (rubber)

If you want to be more versatile and/or start your dog off in something a little less expensive, try the rubber Pawz, disposable boots. Pawz pricing is in the $15-$20 range, and comes in a pack of 12.

Soxy Paws keep your Pups' feet warm and salt free!

Paired with socks, by Soxy Paws, for warmth, this cute ensemble works and after walking in rain, snow and slush – Kenny’s feet are bone dry when we come back in from a walk. Pricing for Soxy Paws starts at $13 and they too come in amazing color combos.

If you’re in the NYC tri-state area, all of these items can be found at The New York Dog Shop on the Upper West-Side in Manhattan.
