Salt, snow and extreme cold have always bothered my dogs feet. I do put booties on Tucker when I walk him in the city due to the salt and if its really cold cause he will stand on three feet and try and hold different paws up that are cold or are hurting. Then at the cottage he has the problem of snow balls which collect in between his pads and hurt his feet. For this I keep the fur trimmed down between his toes which prevents the build up. I have tried booties up there but they seem to get lost in the snow as he is running. When he gets snow balls in his feet he lies on his back and waits for you to pull them out for him
