5 Ways to Protect Pets This Winter (LOOK)
Winter just reared its ugly head upon our state with a vengeance, in autumn! Wow, right?
I don’t have to tell you to bust out the winter jackets and boots for everyone. What about the pets?
In Montana, even in “autumn” snow, it still gets below zero at times. Does your pup need winter gear as well? Maybe, maybe not. Unless you have a husky, I’m sure the pup’s feet and coat are just a bit subpar for the cold snap.
My dog Penelope can be a bit finicky when it comes to winter wear. She likes T-shirts and harnesses to a point, and she does NOT like doggy boots.

Here are some examples of some stuff on Amazon that you may like and find useful, some of this stuff is for small pups like mine, but if you need bigger sizes, Amazon will surely have something for you.
It looks more like a gator. If your pooch can handle the cold for the most part, then this will keep the comfortable at an affordable price. Try it, and buy it here.

Elements can be bad for the pads. Protect those puppy paws from dirt, salt, and other chemicals. Pawtection is right here.
Dog Shoes and boots
