Boots for the sloppy snow event here in the east

Anyone putting boots on the havs for outdoor activities??
I just had henry groomed - he's so sweet smelling and fluffy.

I have boots for him but they will not stay on him.

Anyone do home-made remedies?
I'm thinking a sandwich baggie (4) with rubber-bands?

Ok, I'm going to hop to it and see if that'll work......

Daniel posted these in another thread. They're disposable dog boots which I just ordered from Amazon.

Yesterday or the day before I ordered a set of smalls for Tucker. Anxious for them to get here!

I dont know if it would work in the snow, but I did do the sandwich baggie/rubber band trick on Mouse when I had to keep her cast dry every time she went out to potty~

Sandwich baggies? Hmmm...not a bad idea. I wonder if they would slide too badly with just the baggy, though?....May try it! Would certainly be cheaper. I know when I was little my mom would put bread sacks over my shoes when it snowed. Worked fine as far as I was concerned.

That would be all we need, bags to bug Moxie on his feet. He is so puzzled by the snow that he hasn't pooed or peed since it began. I am not sure how this will end up. He is not a big fan of pads, but I have them at the ready.

those look interesting, I guess Medium would be good for the hav?
I tried the sandwich bags with rubber bands. Did not work, he lost them in no time and happily galloped thru the snow (and therefore became a hav-sical!)

So far I am very happy with them. Just one thing I noticed is that it's better to go a little smaller than larger. Brando has small ones, and those sucker don't come off ever when running through the snow like a madman. Bogart has medium and after he's worn them maybe 4 or 5 times the seem to stretch a bit. On two occassions one boot fell off. You can tell they might fall off when you put them on and they seem to have lost some of their stretchiness. I think I am going to try a small pair on him...although I now have about 2 and a half pairs. Ryan had ordered mediums for Beamer and they were too big so he gave them to me.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

Daniel.. Then they are not tight enough to affect the circulation?

I talked to the lady at the on line store and she said you don't want them too tight, but too big won't work, either. They have the measurements now on the site I posted up above. I got the smalls...we'll see how they work when they get here. I'm glad to read that the smalls might be working better on Daniel's and Ryan's Havs, (since that is what is on it's way to me )

Okay, so the baggies didn't work well...

Debra, hope Moxie decides to use the outdoor facilities soon. I had to laugh at Tucker! He wouldn't do his business the first day, just held it in. By the second day he really had to go, but every time he squatted down he'd look so shocked and his rear end would pop back up and he'd whirl around and glare behind him. I shoveled out an area so he doesn't have to sit in the snow, and he's now going outdoors just fine.
