Default Dog Shoes?

No, not shoes for your dogs, shoes you wear while out with/taking care of dogs!

Since I've started dog sitting and having to be outside in all sort of weather I've gotten myself a pair of proper rubber boots. They're awesome because I could be in water up to my knees and not get wet and if Becket decides to nom on my foot, his teeth aren't getting anywhere. These are to super awesome shoes I have:



So, what shoes do you wear for dog chores?

I wear these out in the dog yard. Handy in case you step in something they wash right off.

If it's dry out I use these:



And if it's wet out I use these:




The agate ones fit tighter and dry faster than the black ones, which is why I use them for wet conditions. It also means I only have one pair of wet shoes.

See, I was wearing my VFF Treksports at first but if you step in poo it's a massive pain to get out of the tread, worse if it gets between the toes. Also, they are no warm at all when it's 30* outside.

I've worn them below freezing before. Yes, they are cold especially when they're wet. But most of the time I just don't care lol. I suppose when it gets to be nasty and cold and snowy I'll probably wear something else, but not sure what.

OMG, those boots are soooo cute! I love them. Are they Hunter boots? I've been wanting a pair.

I need to invest in a better pair of shoes. As it is, I don't have a good shoe for ANY occasion, certainly nothing good for dog stuff! In the winter I usually go for walks/dog park wearing my Emu boots (think Uggs), which is probably not very smart and more wear and tear than I should put on them. But they're the only warm pair of anything that I have!

What I need is a comfortable, all-purpose, waterproof shoe for the 3 seasons other than winter, and for going to work in.... and a warm rubber boot for winter.

I have a pair of waterproof shoes from Lands End for walking Lucy in the snow. Otherwise, it's just sneakers.

Flip flops. Haha, no joke! I used to wear boots alot in the winter but the cheap rubber pair I had (similar the pair you posted, Izzy, but think from Wal-Mart/Target) came apart after one season. I used them for everything, though. Herding, woods, rainy days, etc. I loved those boots.

For herding, right now since it's so dry outside and sunny with no tall grass, I just wear tennis shoes.

I'm saving up for Muck Boots right now, so hopefully I won't need to purchase new boots for a long time. Specifically these, in purple: http://www.amazon.com/Original-MuckB...4411564&sr=8-1
