Healers Urban Walkers Provide Winter Protection for your Dog

Standard

Healers Urban Walkers Dog Boots

Healers Urban Walkers are booties for dogs, and protect your dog’s paws when outdoors.  Now that there is a big snow storm coming up the Northeast, it’s time to remember that our dogs need protection from the winter elements.  Road salt is very harmful to the paw pads of your dog, and icy sidewalks are also treacherous.  Dogs with long hair tend to have fur growing between their pads, and ice and snowballs can collect on them if they aren’t protected.

Healers Urban Walkers are dog boots made in the USA in Portland, Oregon, and offer protection for your dog’s paws.

Healers Urban Walkers were designed by a former Nike Shoe designer and are tested by the National Guide Dogs for the Blind.   The dog boots are designed with a non-skid sole, and the upper is a shoe mesh so that they dry quickly.  it dries quickly. Even though the sole is thicker it is still flexible providing your pet a natural feel and movement as they walk or run. The wrap around design enables a great fit so the boot stays on. The hook and loop applied is high tensile strength hook that creates a firm hold even in snowy conditions.

In addition to protection against ice and road salt, they serve as a shock absorber, provide surface traction and insulate the dog from extreme hot and cold temperatures.

Healers Urban Walkers are available in 7 sizes, so they are sized for the tiniest of toy breeds such as Chihuahuas and Yorkies on up to the giant breeds such as Mastiffs and St. Bernards, and everything in between.  The Healers Urban Walkers are sold in pairs, because many dogs front paws are a slightly different size compared to their rear paws.

Healers Urban Walkers are available for purchase online at ShopForPuppy.com, where we are happy to support Rescues and Shelters through our generous donation program.

Standard

I found this testimonial on the Bowserwear blog, and I thought it was important to share it.  Healers Urban Walkers dog boots are proudly sold online at ShopForPuppy.com, where a portion of all revenue is donated to Rescue and helping dogs in need.

“I love your boots so much, wonderful quality. They stay on and keep Dylan and Trevor’s paws from this awful Kansas heat on the pavement. Our walking trail is asphalt and gets so hot. Now I can walk them knowing their paws are protected. Also the boots will be great in the winter. It gets very cold with ice and snow. Dylan my eleven year old had ACL surgery last year. I took him to a specialty clinic for Rehabilitating. Starting few weeks after his surgery. Once a week for six months every week. Water treadmill and cold laser therapy. He is doing wonderful goes to work with me and Trevor every night. In fact where we go Dylan goes also. I have my walking buddy back. I want to keep him healthy always making sure he is careful what ever we are doing not to hurt the leg. I love my babies.”  ~ Gloria , Perfect Puppy, LLC  Dog Training

ZenDog Calming Compression Shirt for Dogs

Standard

Like humans, pets have pressure points that, when activated, help calm even the most anxious dogs.  If your dog gets nervous during a thunderstorm or fireworks, you may want to consider using the ZenDog Calming Compression Shirt to help soothe his anxieties.  Professional behaviorists claim that a calming compression shirt will also help alleviate nervousness from dogs with separation anxiety, travel anxiety and general noise anxiety.

Dr. Temple Grandin is a well known author and Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University, has done some studies and stated that “pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system”.  Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years.  For further information on how pressure helps to relieve anxiety in dogs, reference an article from the Wall Street Journal entitled “Putting the Squeeze on Doggie Anxiety”.

Healers Paw Booties

Standard

Now there is finally something to help our dogs when they have problems with their paws — either from an injury, allergies or itchiness.  Healers Paw Booties are medical dog boots that are designed as a medical aid that is fitted for your dog’s paw.  They come in all sizes, and can be used for the teacup breeds as well as the Giants.  They are easy to put on your dog!

Healers Paw Boots

What is unique about these Healers Paw Booties is that they incHealers Paw Boots Replacement Gauze Insertslude replacement gauze inserts that fit the interior of the bootie so that you can apply ointment to the area that needs treated or protected.  The Healers custom non-adherent, triple layer gauze inserts fit the interior of the dog bootie and acts as a bandage to absorb moisture and allows owner to apply medicine if needed.  Adhesive backing on the gauze pads keep the gauze in place.

I like the reasonable price too!  They are priced according to size, and all sizes are under $30/pair.  Yes, they come in pairs!  Each boxed set also includes replacement gauze inserts for additional protection for your dog’s paw.

A friend of mine has used expensive socks to help treat her dog’s paw injury, and to keep the paw from getting infected.  The socks seemed to work fine (they were good, well-fitted socks), but I expect that one of the Healers Paw Booties will work much better as they are designed to fit the unique shape of a dog’s paw.

I haven’t tried these yet as there hasn’t been a need, but if for some reason either of my dogs develops a paw injury or allergies, you can bet that I will give these a whirl.  I don’t have much patience for trying to wrap a dog’s foot while trying to keep it clean.  These look like they are just what the Doctor (er, Vet) ordered!
