Mushers's Secret is an invisible boot which protects your dog's paws from deicing chemicals, rock salt, ice, snow and cold.

It is also recommended to wipe off your dog's paws and belly when they return in from the cold.

You may think it would be fun to see your dog sliding around on an icy pond, however each year we hear of dog's rescued from freezing waters. It also puts firemen and women in danger as the rescuers.

Dogs can get frostbite on ear and tail tips. If it's excessively cold stay in. Food puzzles and enrichment games can help burn off some energy until the cold weather passes.

Frosty Paws!

When the sun is toasty, hot surfaces like asphalt, metal grates and stone can burn your dog's paws. Be sure your dog has access to shade, water and cool surfaces to lie on.
