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

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.
