breed

Q. Are dog boots really worth it or are they just a gimmick? They're a bit pricey and I don't want to waste the money if he's not going to use them.

A. It depends on the type you are talking about. If the are for a particular reason such as protecting a foot that has a wound on it then they are great. I can't think of any other reason why they would be of use.
