What are peoples views on those dog bootie things.
I swore i'd never turn my dogs into those paris hilton, tutu & bow wearing dogs and so i'm a little funny about perhaps buying Molly some booties.
It's getting damp up in the sunny state and M's feet turn pink on our early morning & evening walks, and they get worse at obedience (performed on grass from 8-9pm . I'm looking at way's to prevent the pink coming up and if anybody else can suggest something other than the boots i'd be glad to try.
During the summer she is groomed every 4 weeks and i leave her feet (they're one of her greatest attributes her big polar bear feet!) During winter i groom her every 8-10 weeks and the next time we head in (in two weeks time) i'm going to shave her feet & start all over again, but even with the trim the pink stays around. She chews her feet to sleep also which doesn't help (it's either her feet or my friggin duvet) either.
I'm embarrassed to walk my dog in boots & be labeled as 'that type of owner' but i don't want my dog walking around with an ugly looking bacterial infection either! I'll try and take a photo of her feet in the morning to post.
