dog-in-snow-w-boots-onLots of snow, lots of road de icer and and road salt. These chemicals should not be confused with common table salt.  These products are made of strong chemicals that cause severe pain and burn your dogs feet. They also burn your dogs mouth and tongue as your dog licks his feet. If you want to sand your property, then buy the harmless sand that is put in a kids sandbox. It does the trick and will not harm your dog or the neighbors dog. Kitty litter and wood ash also provide safe footing. Get a large rug or doormat to wipe your feet clean and not drag those harmful chemicals around your home.  When you get inside, wash your dogs feet and for long haired dogs, brush his underside. If your dog comes in wet, he probably picked up some road salt along the way. Wash him with warm, soapy water, properly rinse and towel dry him. Consider buying him a dog sweater and dog boots to protect his feet.
