Considering new boots for your dog or puppy? Petco has plenty of styles to choose from for your canines, both big and small. Dog shoes and boots help keep our pets walking and running all year long, no matter the weather or terrain.
Benefits of Dog Boots
Dog shoes, boots, and booties can protect your pup from hot pavement. Protective boots help our pups’ feet in the winter, too. Did you know dogs can get frostbite on their paws if they’re out in the snow too long? Check out our cold weather shop for even more winter essentials.
Dog boots with silicone bottoms or special grips can help your pup take on fast turns and hard stops on hardwood floors, in the rain, or any slick surface with confidence
Depending on the footwear you select, dog shoes and boots may also keep your pet’s paws safe from any loose gravel, glass, pointy burrs, and other bits of rough terrain.
Tips For Introducing Your Dog to Their New Boots
All dogs are different, and some are more sensitive to having footwear than others. If your dog is uncomfortable wearing shoes, don’t push it. Otherwise, have patience and ease them into the process of wearing shoes or boots by letting them get comfortable inside before you go out on a long walk. Once it’s time to debut their doggie footwear outside, don’t forget to pick up a matching collar and leash.
Dog shoes don’t have numbered sizes like human shoes. Check the description of each product for specific measurements, and then measure your dog’s paws. They should still be able to flex their paw when wearing the boot, but it should fit snug around their ankle.
