Salt hurts their paws, they can get painful balls of snow, if between the paw pads is not trimmed right down. I've only ever used paw wax and kept the hair trimmed. Some dogs are more sensitive than others, my Scotch Collie, was out, do business and in, usually limping for no reason, Oz he'll stay out all day and goodness help you if you shovel snow and he cannot participate and my Saint, well, the rougher the cold, the more snow, the less likely she is to come inside ROFL!
