We just got a new inventory of clothing from the new London designer “Ready to Wag” and let me say the clothes rocks! It fits very well, made with impeccable quality, and is picture pawfect! Check out photos of our Brownie. Looks pretty hot for the next pug playdate!
We are back on the booties topic. Last post, I had done some research on shoes for dogs and any bad impacts from wearing them. So, shoes are good and protect the paws…but are they comfortable and will your dog wear them? I tried them on mine and took it a bit further by taking it out to the dog park for our monthly pug meetup. Here are pics. It rained really hard this last weekend. There was thunder and lightning right before our 9am meetup. The mud came on as Brownie ran like crazy and chased after dogs and balls. After two hours, the shoes stayed on and was easy enough to clean. I hose the dog down and the shoes rinsed off easily (Vinyl tops are durable). Check out the photos! Our website will be selling these fabulous booties in baby blue, baby pink, and other bright and fun colors. Coming in June 06. Mark your calendars!
I was wondering how you, pet parents, feel about dogs wearing shoes? We have never put shoes on our dogs before but they were so cute we could not resist. I also researched and found an article released by Cornell University’s Science News on dog coats and booties (see link below) and it basically said dog booties can protect their paws. We at first thought the idea was unheard of but later changed our minds as we got more use to the idea. It helps to try it on for a few minutes while supervised by parents everyday for a while before they get use to it and stop trying to chew it off. It’s just like humans, breaking in a new pair of shoes is not fun!
