    Default Dog Bootie Recommendation

    I know that bulldogs generally do not need boots but I thought, perhaps, someone might have experience with another pet.

    I posted this in the health thread but I was recently hiking with my friend and his dog, a German Shepherd. She suffered an injury to her pad and is very unhappy and sore.

    Does anyone have any experience with dog booties and might be able to recommend a brand to me? I am clueless when it comes to these things but I think they would be useful to avoid more injury and protect from the Arizona heat.

    Thanks!

    we had bought some for our lab cause he was scratching our hardwood floors and they kept falling off him we were always havin to pull them up... we got some old socks and put on his feet and used electrical tape to hold them up that worked better than the boots

    ya it actually worked poor thing pouted when they were on his feet... guess that tape just held better than velcro. of course if you do use tape make sure its not to tight around the legs

    Dave is a hunter, comes from a hunting family. Their lab had camo booties for when they were out hunting that we ended up getting. We put them on Sam and he walked like a complete weirdo with them on. It was so funny! He was not down for that at all! Not sure where they got them though

    What was I thinking, of course I know where they got them, Cabelas!

    http://www.cabelas.com/product/Home-..._SEQ_103906980

    They are just like these only the ones we have (wherever they are) are camo. Cabelas makes a good product so even though I have never actually tested them for their quality I'm sure they would be better or just as good as another other bootie on the market.

    Thanks everyone! There is a Cabela's in the area so I will definitely make a stop there before the next hike and report back!

    We were in Cabella's yesterday and I actually had a pair of those in my hand considering buying them for Gracie. Decided against it but they look to be well made.
