Dog Mocs dog moccasins are handcrafted, using American deerskin, often called “nature’s best leather”. The durable deerskin will protect your dog’s paws year-round, no matter the terrain or activity. And the deerskin’s natural softness allows your dog to still “feel” the ground, which is so critical, as it navigates terrains and explores unseen dangers. The “rubber soles” of the other dog boots don’t allow for this sense of touch, which is why dogs hate wearing them. The more natural the protection, the better for your buddy.
