Make Your Own Dog Hiking Booties
Help protect those tender paws with dog hiking booties.
Make your own dog hiking booties! We love our dogs! And we love to hike and camp with our dogs! Help protect those tender paws with dog hiking booties.
Prevent paw-pad cuts and scrapes with this easy do-it-yourself project. You will need fabric (midweight nylon, fleece, denim) and 1-inch-wide Velco strips.
Here are the easy steps to make your dog hiking booties:
1. Cut two rectangles of fabric. Width should be 1 inch wider than pay; length should be 5-8 inches depending on size of dog.
2. Cut a strip of Velcro. Length should be the circumference of dog’s ankle plus 1.5 inches.
3. Sew rectangles together leaving a .25-inch seam.
4. Turn right-side-out. Sew 1.5 inches of Velcro to top of dog hiking booties, hook side up. Sew the rest loop side down, leaving enough extra Velcro to secure dog hiking booties around dog’s ankle.
Happy Hiking with your best Buddy! Enjoy the outdoors. . .
