Q: Why do dogs need boots?
A: Dog paws are like our hands and feet; they're made up of many tiny bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments, layers of fat for warmth and cushioning. When our hands and feet are exposed to snow, salt, freezing temperatures and rough terrains they are likely to get chapped and damaged.
Q: When should I use dog boots?
A: You can use boots to keep the paws clean during rainy days. You can consider using boots when the temperature drops and there is snow on the ground, especially if there is salt and other corrosive chemicals on the ground.
Q: How do I measure my dog's paws?
A: Please use our how to measure guide or watch the video on our product page which explains this in detail. You basically need to measure the width of the paw and follow our size guide.

A: The surface can be spot cleaned. You can also soak the boots in luke warm water with regular soap and detergent then rinse with clean water. Gently wring out excess water before hanging to dry. Do not use a dryer or direct heat source, as this can damage the boots.
