Dogs put a lot of wear and tear on their paws and they need to be properly maintained in the colder weather. There are winter boots that your dog can wear, but many dogs find them too disorienting and uncomfortable. If they won’t wear them, make sure to trim the hair on their paws, as wet hair can keep the paws damp even after they have come inside, but don’t cut the hair too short! Dogs in city environments may require a balm or Vaseline to soothe their paws from the salted sidewalks. If you don’t want to risk your dog licking Vaseline off their paws, you can have their paws cleaned regularly at a groomer.
