Bichon Frise Boots  -  Protect their Feet From Ice And Snow

Are boots for dogs silly or a smart idea?

There was a time in my life not too long ago, when I would have thought the idea of putting boots on a dog was a silly concept. In fact, I would have suspected the person speaking about this thought I was gullible enough to believe dog boots were a real and useful item. I mean come on, dog boots?!

Yes, dog boots. Fast forward three years, and I am the proud and protective owner of a Bichon Frise. I want to do everything I can to keep my dog safe, comfortable and happy. I worry about his diet, his coat, his behavior, and yes, even his feet.

Why would you want dog boots?

I live in Michigan, and our winters are typically cold, icy and include quite a bit of snow on the ground. Because sidewalks and roadways are dangerous for drivers and pedestrians when they become icy, salt is often spread to melt the ice and snow to make safer travel possible. Both the cold and the salt are tough on the feet of dogs including the Bichon Frise. The icy cold can make your dog reluctant to go outside, and the salt can irritate and even potentially burn the pads of the paws with extended contact. Boots are a practical way to solve both of these problems.

How do I know which dog boots to buy?

The widest selection of boots for dogs I've found is on Amazon. Many people don't realize that Amazon offers a huge selection of products for dogs. I like to read the reviews posted for each product by other customers. Their first hand experiences can help you figure out which item is the best for your needs. Amazon's pet department stocks inexpensive items like multi-packs of disposable booties perfect for keeping in the car or having on hand for infrequent use on rainy or muddy days. You can also purchase premium boots for extreme winter weather, excellent and effective for hiking, regular runners or joggers, and long term durability. There are options for just about every situation out there. Whether you own a Bichon Frise or another breed of dog, they have a size and selection for you.

Boots for your Bichon Frise are kind.

We all love our dogs, and if you have a Bichon Frise like me, you don't want his paws to be dry, chafed and sore this winter. Open your mind to all of your available options, and consider purchasing a pair of dog boots for your pet this winter. They will keep him warm and comfortable and dry. It is a small step you can take to keep your precious pup looking and feeling fantastic this winter.
