Need advise about a good brand of boots for winter.
Vivace hates her paws being cold. Not to mention the fact that people around here are salt crazy and her paws get really red during our walks. I bought her one pair of boots but due to her nails being on the long side,(we are working on slowly getting the quick to move back)the boots are wearing fast and after a month are almost garbage. Is there a good brand that has a re-enforced toe, not short as they fall off, and are not too expensive.

Boots are hard. If you can get them on, you spend half your walk worrying about whether these EXPENSIVE boots will fall off and be lost forever.
Velcro is CRAP once you're out in the snow for awhile, don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
Be careful if the dew claw is under neath where the straps are; this can be uncomfortable.
The only thing that has even remotely kind of worked for us (I've tried muttluks, hot doggers, ruffwear, neopaws, and gooby already!) are PAWZ. We only do them in the snow (minimal protection from ice and cold and mostly for the salt and chemicals on city sidewalks), on a big dog on the regular ground they tend to rip faster. They come 12 to a package and are reasonably priced and stay on. So you don't have to worry about losing them and they do wear down eventually but not too fast. And the dogs don't mind them.
