Checking on y'alls opinions on dog boots or duct tape. I'm headed to an area with sand spurs in a couple of weeks and trying to decide whether to pull the trigger on some Lewis dog boots or just stick to duct tape.

I have never used either on my dogs, but my yellow got a huge thorn in his paw earlier this season. I'll watch for educated opinions.

Go with the Lewis Boots...DO NOT USE DUCT TAPE. If you don't want to spring on the Lewis Boots, buy some cheap bicycle inner tubes and make some boots.

My vote is for motorcycle inner tubes. Made a big difference in my hunt in the sand hills this year.

Don't go barefooted in your motel room.

I like the LEWIS boots. Iíll usually only boot a dog on the front feet when they get to where they canít run. I have had to boot dogs every day, at least on the front when hunting public NM land every year. This year the grassburs werenít bad enough to boot up and there werenít many bird either.

I use Lewis boots for rocks. Sand burs I use dogbooties.com. 1,000 denier. Dog booties are a whole lot easier to put on if your new to dog boots

Many, many years ago, I used motorcycle innertubes.
Today I have converted to Lewis boots, but I always carry an innertube and some duct tape in my vest, in case a dog throws a boot. I have only lost one Lewis boot and that was because it was put on when the rubber was wet, and the boot pulled off the boot.

The dogs never seem to notice them in the field. It takes less than 5 minutes to boot em. Even if burrs are not too bad, I really notice a difference in how the dog runs the second day.
