Pup's New Boots Lead to Awesome Dance Moves

By joslyngray |

I’ll be the first to say that I used to think boots for dogs were completely ridonculous. That was until I had a dog, and had to walk her in the winter. The rock salt and chemicals people put down on sidewalks to melt snow and ice can be extremely painful for dogs.

Dog boots are also helpful if you’ll be walking in an area with lots of burrs, and many owners like them for muddy walks to keep mud from caking in the paws.

But boots can take some getting used to for dogs, especially if they aren’t started with them as puppies.

Barkley’s owner, YouTube user KoshitheShiba, says Barkley needs boots because ice-melting salt and chemicals are so painful for the dog. The found the boots “came in handy again when he cut his foot and needed stitches. They kept his foot clean and dry during his walks.”

Barkley’s owner says it only took one walk outside for Barkley to get used to his boots, but the ballet he does when he first puts them on is still pretty awesome. By the way, the snacks he’s gobbling up are baby carrots.
