More and more dog owners are looking to booties to protect their beloved pets' paws.
If you live in a city, it's easy to forget that Man's Best Friend is also susceptible to rough terrains and harmful walking conditions. If the sidewalks are too hot or cold for your feet, they might also harm your pup's paws. Dog booties will help protect your dog's feet from freezing snow or super hot pavement, plus provide protection from painful cuts and scratches. Plus, they look pretty cute. Here are five of our recommendations for dog booties for your city dog.
1. Ultra Paws Durable Dog Boot
These boots are water-resistant, non-slip, and abrasion resistant, making them a good option for an everyday walk through the park, or a trekking through the snow. These have great traction for older dogs, and flexible skid-resistant soles that perform well in wet and dry conditions.
2. Healers Dog Boots for Paw Protection with Non Slip Sole, Reflective Pet Booties, 1-Pair
This protective dog boot is made with a strong, non-skid sole that is perfect for slippery surfaces and all terrains. The top layer of fabric is a breathable shoe mesh that dries quickly and allows air flow so bacteria does not build up inside.

The non-marking Vibram outsole is rugged and resilient, providing traction and flexibility on all kinds of terrain. Choose between a set of two or four boots depending on your dog's needs.
