So because of the salt I have been researching dog boots - I just received X-small pack of PAWZ - the rubbery snug dog booties that have been recommended to me by several people. I put them on - they are quite snug - I am a little paranoid when it comes to cutting off circulation although I don't think that they are that tight on him. They just fit snug. I just have no experience how snug they are supposed to fit? This is like a two edge sword: on one hand you need them snug or they will fall off on the other hand I don't want him wearing these if they are too tight. To get them on him I wish I had a video to share with you at twice the speed with the Benny Hill soundtrack.... So any input by somebody who has been using them for a while? Also how long do they last? I know they are semi-disposable (which is not great) but still better than paws that are irritated by the excessive salt on our street.
