I think my dog is trying to kill me

We’ve got a bit of snow lately and the sidewalks can be a little icy, well I swear everytime we reached an ice patch Chloe decided to run, pull or cut out in front of me! I think she’s trying to kill me! I bet my neighbours had a good laugh tonight

Get yourself some "studded snow tires".

There are different brands (YakTrax, Get-A-Grip ice cleats, etc.). I happen to like the stabilicers best for dog walks.

Seriously, they help a lot. The post office and package delivery people around here use them.

Here is one link :

Be safe!

I have a pair of Yak Trax. My experience is that the work well on snow, and rough ice, but not glare ice. In some cases, it can make it worse.

I've made these myself over the years for running in the winter. They work almost as well as spikes, and will hurt less if you step on your dog's feet. In the spring, just take the screws out, and they're as good as new.

Thanks! I have winter boots but I still do the running man sometimes. I will look into the ice cleats, they look like a great idea.

Thank you for a good belly laugh at your message along with your awesome signature photo that makes me smile every time. What a great mum you are. It is amazing what situations we find ourselves in for the sake of our goldens. In all seriousness I hope that you don't hurt yourself! May you enjoy many happy and safe walks together.

Thanks Doug!! Its true, I can't count how many times I've thought to myself "in what other situation would I do this??? Only for Chloe." I will try to be safe and not break anything. I really think those cleats might be a good investment.

I was actually thinking the same thing about Jess yesterday, and even told him so. It's an icy mess here with ice under a thin layer of snowy, stupid me I went out yesterday without the ice cleats or my best friend in winter, my hiking stick, and of course I did take a little tumble. Still recovering from last winter's fall where I injured my knee.
Getting old and not as agile as I used to be.
If only dogs could go to the gym.

We have the same situation here. We live in what was once a small village, now part of the city. The road around the corner from us is not on city property, but they do plow it. There are restrictive covenants on the roads which do not allow them to be widened or straightened. The road we live on is a two-way street,but really only wide enough for one vehicle. When you meet another car, one of them has to back up or turn off into someone's driveway. And that's without piled snow on the sides of the road.
