one that will fit well, not too tight, not too loose, preferably with fleece or
faux fur lining. As for paws, you can buy booties, but not all dogs tolerate
them and often times you end up losing a bootie here and there during walks,
finding ones that will stay on can be a challenge. I use a mixture of baby powder and
vaseline, you simply mix the two until you get a nice thick consistency and rub
them on all paw pads before each walk. Once you come home simply wipe off
the residue, or wash the paws if you like. With a good coat and protection on
the paws there is no reason for your Chi to not walk, so do not give into fits or
tantrums, stay positive, encourage her, make the experience enjoyable, if she
does not want to walk you can use treats to entice her, if she is chilly you can
pick up the pace and walk quickly or run, most importantly keep up the walks, do
short by frequent walks if you like, but don't stop walking, it's so good for both
you and your pup. I am from Russia, now live in Canada and all of my dogs, no
matter the size always walk all year long, be it rain, snow, wind or hail, when
you are well equipped there are no excuses to miss out.
Ok thank you (sorry for late reply ) but I will try the powder and Vaseline thank you! And wow you're a champ for surviving the cold hahaha
