Usually that happens when there is salt on the ground. In fact, it happens a lot around here--I have to stop and brush off Rafi's feet.

However, when I lived in Wisconsin I do remember the cold bothering my old gsd Massie. I assumed she probably had a little arthritis in her feet.

Booties are a good solution but do be aware that if you walk a lot or walk in ta lot of snow, condensation will build up inside the boots and cause blisters.
