    To answer some questions. My dog responds very well to voice command and won't wander far away from us, I don't even think he'd go off the trail, in fact, he will even stop chasing animals when told not too (deer, etc.). His pads are not rugged but not soft, so since I do not plan on taking him until the summer, I will take him for long walks on roads and in my woods where there is alot of rocks. It should toughen his pads and I think he'll enjoy the extra attention haha.

    Default Musher's Secret

    Not to promote a specific product, but as I said in my previous post, I use Musher's Secret on my paws, it keeps the snow from sticking, and helps with nicks and cuts on the sharp Mount Washington rocks in the summer. A baby aspirin for tired bones helps, too.

    I did not know this was a secret. We use this ("Mushers Secret Wax") on our dog's paws in the winter.

    We tried the "shoes" and our dog said, "No Way".

    Not endorsing any product or retailer, but I came across this source a while ago.

    Of course as Brad said, the mutt might have other ideas.

    ahh I think I'll get some of that to bring just in case. I took him in the woods for a long walk and he was walking over some jagged rocks for quite some time. He had no problem climbing and he didn't get tired. After we got home i took a look at his pads and they showed no wear. When we bring him up the rockpile I'll check his pads periodically and if there's any wear I'll put some of that stuff on.

    Thanks for the responses.
