Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Ruins are at Mt. Falcon.

i just put the booties on and make them walk in them! they have to put their feet down at some point lol!
i shop dogbooties.com love them, cheap so when they fall off i don't care to much.

Why do you put boots on your pups? I have 2 young Siberian’s we hike a lot and haven’t had any issues with the feet....is it for injury protection or more so for cold? Just curious! Thanks

I see most mushers do it?
I think it has something to do with their paws getting frozen when running in snow.
They sweat through their paws, so ice can form on their feet, and also they don't have fur protecting their paws.

My dog walks/plays happily in snow without booties, but we're only out for less than an hour. I think if longer, he might get uncomfortable.

oh, and beautiful photos!!

i have mushers secret and find even using that they still end up with ice balls that stick to the bottom of their feet. the booties just make life easier on both of us! no snow balls on feet and my hands don't get cold melting said snow balls off their feet.
in the summer i will use them if we are on really rocky areas with talus. the feet do get sore with long days and booties protect them.
we are out for long days most of the time.
i do not use booties for walks around the neighborhood with snow.
