Be mindful of salt, grit and snow on the roads, try to avoid letting your dog walk through too much of it and check their paws after a walk.
Snow can compact between their toes, which can be painful, and salt can irritate paws and cause harm if licked.
A thorough wash and dry of your dog’s feet will help make sure nothing is lodged between their toes; it will also stop your dog ingesting any salt if they try to clean their feet themselves.
Keeping the fur between the toes trimmed will also help prevent ice building up.
