|Another vote for dog boots! Or at the very least, bring the supplies to make a makeshift boot should one of the dogs cut a pad (old cotton socks, duct tape, gauze, vet wrap...).
Also, find a dog friendly product that will keep the bugs away (esp. since boxers have such short fur). We've only backcountry hiked with Rexy once (she slit a pad), and the bugs were horrid. She would bolt for the tent and try to paw her way in....I had to resort to wiping my DEET-repellent filled hands around her face and on her legs in an attempt to keep the bugs away.
Oh, and Ruff Wear packs are awesome!
