Dog boots part 2

I posted awhile ago about dog boots. And after picking the ones I thought would work best for my dog and ordering them I thought I would let people know how they worked out. It also gives me another chance to thank people for the help.
What I ended up getting was a boot by Ultra Paws. They say they are easy to get on, made with a water resistant fabric, and the sole is a recycled tire material. I was surprised to find that getting them on wast that bad. As far as the price goes that was not to bad either I paid $41 shipped.
We gave the boots a test with a 3 mile hike fabric, at 16 degrees it was a little warm but not to bad. As you can see in the pictures we had snow but it was pretty hard right on the trail from a freezing rain we had on Chrisms Eve. But off to the side of the trail we had a good 12" of snow. Grizzly walked pretty funny at first but never tried to get the boots off. And after 3 miles of hiking they never fell off but when I took the boots off the ice cold stream did find its way through as his feet did get wet.

This is the video of some of his first steps.



Grizzly at the trail head ready to go.



When he gets thirsty he find out that he can just break the ice. So he gets a drink and tests the boots out even more.



After the hike he takes a breather and shows off his new boots.

i wasnt here for part 1... however, it just reminds me of "kitten mittens" from the show always sunny in Philadelphia.

My dog would rip those of asap, but im glad the product worked for you.

Your dog's head doesn't look like it belongs on his body. Is it an aftermarket head?

That dog was probably in an accident before you bought him and it wasn't disclosed to you. Did you get a Dogfax report prior to buying? That doesn't look like the original head to me. His entire body is white and his head is brown.

Grizzly is a snow dog hes a 140 pound Great Pyrenees. The problem is he gets ice balls that form in his foot webbing that make it painful to walk. Dog Boots are the only way to keep the ice from forming and make his hikes in the snow enjoyable.

At first I thought "Man, the OP babies his dog". Then I saw that it's 16 degrees there, and your dog is cool, so it's all good.

Glad they worked out for him.
Just out of curiosity, is he an inside dog?

Yes he is an inside dog. But I only use the boots when the snow is deep and we will be walking for awhile. The 16 degrees is not all that cold for Wisconsin. He likes to be out side more often when the temps dip another 20-30 degrees.

I'll be getting a set for my dog, he's got fur between his toes where ice balls can form while walking in the snow, it can get painful.
