When putting booties on your dog, stand over your dog with your dog between your legs, and lift one paw at a time. This position allows you to maintain control while helping your dog balance when lifting each paw. If your dog is not comfortable with this position, you can sit next to them and lift one paw at the time.
Before putting the bootie on, brush away any snow or dirt. Guide the bootie over your dog's paw and attach the hook and loop fasteners, ensuring they sit over or under the joints.
Ensure that the hook and loop fasteners are tightened well. For short training sessions lasting a maximum of two hours, the booties should fit snugly. However, for long-distance mushing or trekking lasting many hours, avoid tightening the booties too much to prevent swelling.
We recommend securing the bootie in place with one finger and then tightening the strap over your finger. This ensures it does not become too tight.
When taking a longer break or finishing your training, remove the booties.
Dog booties will naturally experience wear and tear, and their lifespan is influenced by factors such as the type of surface, the length of your dog's nails, and the quality of the material used. Generally, it is important to have realistic expectations regarding the longevity of dog booties. Among our range of dog booties, the most durable option is the Protector bootie.
To extend the lifespan of your dog's booties, a helpful tip is to turn them around halfway through your training session. This is especially beneficial when training on rough surfaces, as it can prevent holes from forming under your dog's paws. Even if there is a small hole on the upper side of the booties, it is not a significant issue. By employing this trick, you can effectively double the distance you can use the booties before needing to replace them.
