Prevent ice balls from forming on your dog's legs using this simple hack

Thursday, December 23rd 2021, 9:05 am - Your dog may love the snow, but the snow doesn't always love your dog back. Here's one way to keep your furry friends protected from the elements this season.

A dog's love for snow is too deep to measure, but sometimes the joy of being outdoors in fresh powder gets weighed down by ice balls that form on their legs.

It's a result of your dog's body heat which melts the snow stuck in it's fur to form ice balls — which then continue to pick up more snow.

Now I did some internet sleuthing, and according to a blog post on, an inexpensive and simple solution lies in baby, toddler or children's socks.

For a demonstration on how this hack works, watch the video above.
