Muttluks Snow Mushers Dog Boots - Blue with Black Trim - Set of Two
We visited our daughter in NYC a few weeks ago after their big snow storm. I noticed many dogs with boots - later I learned it was to keep the salt, which had been used for de-icing, off their feet. The dogs would have licked the salt off bare paws, which makes them sick.I didn't make them exactly like you did, but more or less! It was a few years ago and that dog has since passed on, but he LOVED these booties, and if I ever move back to that climate (one with snow), I'll make them again!There are winter boots to insulate your dog’s feet from cold, damp, ice, snow, and salt; summer boots to shield your pup’s paws from the heat of pavement and asphalt, and hiking boots to protect him from the dangers of sharp rock, brambles, burrs, cacti, and foxtails. They can be used to give a tentative dog traction on slippery floors, to prevent scratches on hardwood floors and snags on carpets, and to deter digging. They can prevent chewing and licking of sores, bandages and medications on the dog’s feet. There are even rubber boots that purport to keep your dog’s feet dry in rainy weather.So there you have it: my pattern and instructions for sewing dog boots. Feel free to use it as you like!Oh, and I’d love it if you could let me know if you come up with any improvements to the design. I’m thinking, for example, of making an even taller pair (with two fasteners) for when the dogs are walking in a real bit of snow…Well, are you freezing in -17 Celsius? You are undoubtedly thinking that because your dog has fur, he stays warm. But a Lab has short fur and dogs that can stand or are bred for that kind of cold are all Husky or Malamute type dogs. Their fur is a totally different matter, with several layers of different types of hair for insulation. And remember, the bottom of a dog's foot is hairless and exposed. Your dog (I hope), is an indoor dog mostly and therefore has no way to build up tolerance to that kind of cold like wolves do. In that kind of weather, your dog needs a coat or heavy sweater and definitely boots if he's out for any length of time to avoid ice and snow becoming impacted between his toes and pads which is very painful for them. Please reconsider. I'll admit that dogs acclimate to the outside easier than we do...but really, that is extreme!I am currently in the market for dog boots for my dog who lives with me in Minnesota and ventures out for many a snowshoe adventure and other snow adventures. We have yet to get through a winter without losing at least one booty. Last year I tried Muttluks and although the fit was better than most. In the deep snow in Minnesota the top elastic cuff would get packed with snow and required many stops to remove this packed snow. I was worried about the snow causing my dog's extremity to get cold and also, it seemed to contribute to putting pressure on the boot itself making it more likely to pull off in the snow. We started with 4 and ended the season with 2 boots. In any case, I am currently researching some other options and the A1 Dog Boot (from a small company in Denver, Co.) looks impressive to me. I like what I see especially around the opening. They have created what they call a stabilizer at the top and it appears it would not be possible to have any snow enter at the top portion as happened with the Muttluks. The webpage states that the stabilizer prevents twisting which would make a loss of a booty less likely. I believe this is the boot that I will choose this year. I will keep you updated as to any experience I have with this product should I obtain it.
