Keep Your Paws on the road
Dogs need to chew – it’s how they clean their teeth and release stored up energy.
Just like little babies, young puppies like to explore/experience the world around them with their teeth.
You can give your dog stuff to chew on or your dog will find it for himself. If you leave it up to your pooch, he may choose your carpet or your shoes.

Even if you do not live in Arizona, you probably considered getting some doggie boots for your pet at some point. If you walk your pet on asphalt or concrete you should consider them during the hot summer days, or during cold winters, when boots can insulate your dog’s feet from snow, ice, and salt. They are also great for keeping your dog's feet dry and clean when it's raining and muddy outside. If you hike in different kinds of terrain, boots can make sure your dog's paws aren't injured by protecting from the dangers of sharp rock, brambles, burrs, cacti, and foxtails; and if you have a senior dog or one with mobility issues, boots can help with traction on slippy floors in the home.
