More of Our Favorite Dog Hiking Gear: Winter Edition
As everyone knows, we love hiking Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks with our dog Loki. Even in the dead of winter, it’s one of our favorite ways to have some fun and get some exercise. Over the years, we’ve tried out a ton of great dog hiking gear and love telling people about our favorite products. (Read our previous blog post with recommendations here.) But come winter time, there are few other must-haves on our list.
And as always, if you’re looking for a great trail, you can check out our blog post on the best off-leash dog hikes, the interactive map on our Resources page, the map board on our Pinterest page, or the City of Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks dog regulations map. Happy hiking!
Similar to dog coats, there are many dogs who can benefit from a little extra protection against the winter elements. These 100% leather moccasins from Dog Mocs help protect your dog’s paws from cold, icy and rough conditions. Stop by the store to check them out; available for dogs of all sizes.
Loki has a tendency to get really dirty after hitting the trails, and in order to keep our car free of mud, we always towel him off with a Soggy Doggy microfiber towel. These towels are the absolute best at getting dogs nice and clean after a wet, snowy, or muddy hike. Microfiber helps dry your dog’s fur faster, attracts dirt, and dries quickly between uses.
