I hollered for my husband, who ran outside to carry her back in. A minute later, I searched for the best dog boots for snow so she could go outside more comfortably during frigid winter temperatures.

Herding breeds and many herding mixes have certain playtime needs to keep them stimulated and ultimately well-behaved family pets.
