I used to treat shoes for dogs mockingly condescending, as to pampering. Only it turned out that she was behind the times. Shoes this is no longer a master’s whim, such as a collar in bryuliki and gold varnish for dog nails. In cities, boots have now become a means of safety for dogs in the winter.

And secondly, dogs lick paws and can be banal poisoning, after getting into this poison.

The boots are not fitted with buckles from the baldies, but in anatomically correct places: above the fingers and above the bend of the carpal joint. so that the dog can move normally and not lose its footwear on the way. You can, of course, tie the shoe, but you still need to make the sole waterproof.

Tie the top of the socks inward and hem them in your arms. By the way, so that the socks do not fall down, you can insert an elastic band or lace, which will keep them.
