Even though we haven’t roasted the Thanksgiving turkey, winter is here (well, we live in Minnesota, so anytime after Labor Day is fair game for snow).
Katie K9 has a few recommendations to make the season healthier and safer for your pup.
Instead of using kitty litter or chemical-filled salt for your sidewalk, try using Chicken Grit #2 (here is an example of the product, but chose a brand that’s best for you) for your outside surfaces. It’s natural and while it may take longer to settle, your pup can walk on it safely!
And keep your pup’s paws safe from the elements. Try slipping on some booties – start with some socks if they are not used to wearing fabric on their feet. Or try Musher’s Secret, a paw balm used by sled dogs to protect their paws while mushing.
