    Dog Bootie Pattern?

    I am looking for a dog boot pattern for two dogs. One is med/small and the other is large, his front paws are enormous but the bootie will need to have elastic or velcro or something to help it fit securely as above his foot (do dogs have ankels?? LOL) because that part of his leg is small. Do you have a pattern that you recommend? Also, please let me know if you've tried a pattern and did NOT like it. Thanks for any tips!!

    I am making them for winter when neighbors and the dept of transportation put salt and things on the roads during bad weather. They don't like their paws to be cleaned off after walks, especially my big guy but I do worry about the different solutions staying on their paws.

    On the above link is the pattern that I made ones from. I used an old suede skirt for the fabrics and they lasted a couple winters. http://www.sewing.org/html/paw_protectors_boots.html

    I've been making my dog a bootie from duck cloth for about 2 years now. I trace a sock; the kind that go below the ankle, then sew it with a 1/4 inch seam. They last for 1 walk...not perfect but works for me :-)

    Oh yeah; I just use a rubberband around her ankle to keep it in place :-)

    Also a good plan to use dog booties if you walk your dogs on cement in the summer months when it gets so hot!

    My dog tried to bite me when I tried to put the booties on his feet. Good luck! Yes, I made them too. Hahah!

    Well, this board is always giving me new projects to do. Having two small dogs that don't like their feet cold or stuck with sand spurs got me to researching "Dog Boot Patterns" on Yahoo. I saw several good ones. I have all the parts, now to trace their feet and sew them up. Got to go buy the Velcro.
