As you can see, he's a little unsure about his newest accessory.
His team can be heard encouraging Jary, who eventually seems to get the hang of walking in winter booties.
While Jary may feel silly, snow boots are important for our four-legged friends, because they protect their paws from snow, ice and salt -- all of which can cause injury and discomfort.
