If you’ve ever seen a pair of Pawz boots, you’ll know what I’m talking about – they look like a small, deflated balloon. The problem I have is stretching the small opening to get it over Oscar’s paw, nails, dew claw and fur. This is not an easy feat, especially with a dog who’s shaking in your lap.
Earth-conscious choice for your pet's dog boots.
My biggest concern about trying the Pawz boots was thinking that the thick, oversized balloons might be difficult to get on the dog’s foot, but Tyler was very patient as I practiced getting his feet into the rubber booties. Although I can manage to put the boots on Tyler by myself — holding the boot open with one hand and guiding the dog’s foot with the other hand — I do find it very helpful to have another person help with the process.

The boots did not slow Tyler down in the least. In fact, our winter walks took less time when he was wearing the purple Pawz because he no longer limped over the salty sidewalks and spent less time stopping to chew at the snowballs that form on his feet. The rubber boots have not only proven useful for cold and snowy days, but also for wet and muddy days — a great way to keep his feet clean when the mud puddles can’t be avoided. I was so pleased with the first trial set of boots, that I bought my own package of 12 Pawz — a set of four to keep at the cabin for snowshoe walks in the deep snow, a set to keep in the car for dog park adventures, and a set at home for a daily jaunt around the neighborhood.
These "balloon" type boots are good for keeps no moisture/water out.
