What type of dog-safe ice-melt do people like?

We use a LOT of salt in the winter. This will be our first winter with our GSD and I don't want to burn his sweet paws. What have you had success with? What doesn't work well? Thanks! Also, since I can't control what other people put on their part of the sidewalks (we're in the city) should I be putting boots on him when we're off our property this winter? Other solutions?

I don't use salt, I use play sand... May make a mess, but it works.

Safe Paw, I've never used it but a friend did and said it worked great.

No clue what the cost is, probably quite high

Be the person your dog thinks you are

I don't use anything but my snow blower and an ice pick. Cheaper than buying ice melt and good workout. I also found its a good stress reliever from the ex wife...
