Winter is hard on everybody – including our dogs!
Between below-zero temperatures, snow and slush, taking our beloved four-legged friends for their daily walks can be uncomfortable – unless your pup is well prepared with a jacket and some booties.
Should your dog be wearing booties?
In a nutshell – yes. Boots help protect your dog’s paws from the elements as well as potentially toxic and harmful chemicals used in road salts and ice melts.
Although most pet-conscious home-owners opt for pet-friendly solutions to removing ice, taking your dog on a walk can potentially cause injury to the paw – especially in urban or suburban areas where salting roads, driveways and sidewalks is common.

Canine winter bootie fashion doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, you and your pooch can make a fashion statement in matching Ugg booties this winter.
The VIP Dog Booties from Ugg help keep your pup’s paws warm, salt-free and stylish all winter long. The ultra-fashionable booties emulate the iconic suede and shearling design synonymous with the Ugg brand but feature synthetic and fleece-lined uppers and interiors as well as non-slip soles and an easy-close strap to hold the bootie into place.
