A couple of years ago, during the off-season, I picked up a set of Muttluks for Jacoby.
Since they were on super-sale (something like 75% off, as I recall), I didn’t have a choice of colour; hence the blue booties.
Since last winter was so warm, and there was so little snow, we never had a reason to use them. I found them while digging out the cats’ Christmas stuff and figured we should give them a trial run before actually wearing them outside.
This turned out to be a good idea; evidently, they take a little getting used to.
The FAQs say that dogs (and cats) accept their Muttluks more readily when they have them on in the snow, but Jake was getting the hang of them before too long despite being inside.
Although, perhaps the hallway wasn’t the best place to test them out, given his fondness for rolling on the carpet out there.
The reflectors work well, though!
A little more practice with the boots, and I think Jake will be all ready for a Boston winter. Muttluks were invented and are made in Canada, where they know winter; they’re like Sorels for the four-legged set.
Now all we need is some snow…
