If your four-legged friend is the active type and has no intentions of slowing down despite the change in weather, picking up a pair of Bark’n Boots Polar Trex ($90) may save you a few trips to the vets. Brought to our attention by the outdoor fiends at Gear Junkie, these boots are engineered for snow and provide your pooch with warmth and traction while they run amok. Even if you don’t plan on walking fido in powpow, the boots can also provide protection from hard substances used in winter such as salt or anti-freeze that frequently make their way to sidewalks. Mercifully for your sake and the dogs, they’re also easy to put on thanks to their slip and clip design. As nifty as they are though, we doubt they’ll actually help convince your friend to step away from his place by the fire.
