You might think that dogs only need boots if they’re doing serious hiking, but they can also benefit from a pair of boots during the warmer months. The temperature of the sidewalk, asphalt, and even dirt gets much hotter than the air temperature in the warmer months, and can cause burns and blisters to unprotected dog paws. These Ruffwear boots(opens in a new tab) are the ideal form of paw protection, and they actually stay on your dog’s feet.
If you do happen to be the outdoorsy type, the Grip Trex boots also work well on the trails. The Vibram outsole is as grippy as the soles of human hiking boots, so your pup will have maximum traction and stability while hiking. They’re also ideal for avoiding dirty paws, and protecting from sharp objects outdoors, too.
