    It's still hot outside, but I started to wonder how to protect my dogs' paws during winter months. We live in Montreal, and have to walk on salty streets for at least 4 months. City workers put tremendous amount of salt and chemicals to melt the snow.

    Any ideas/recommendations for the protection? I was thinking about dog boots, but I'm not sure my girl would be happy to wear them. And if this is the only acceptable option, then I need to train her with her boots now.

    What else might help? Vaseline? Or I'm worrying for nothing, and dogs are fine to walk on anything?

    I appreciate any suggestions!

    You can buy a product called "Mushers Secret" to protect from snow and ice, but to protect against salt and chemicals I would strongly suggest booties. Usually once dogs have the booties on and are walking for a few minutes, they seem to forget about them.
    A company that I recommend to get dog booties from is NeoPaws. Great boots, great service and they are a Canadian company too !
