Thank you!

We have boots because this trail has a lot of rocks, burs, tree roots, and can be a bit harsh on their paws and footing. Plus the sugar sand here gets hot hot hot!! It'll burn their paws after a little while. It's just to keep his paws safe. Also, ticks are abundant in this area of the woods and the last thing I want is getting them in between his toes. It just makes everything more visible for me.
