I have a 9 month old male border collie. He is a great pup and loves to play fetch. Living in North Dakota, the winter time has been a struggle with making sure he is getting out and exercising. For the past month ever time its been nice enough (above 15 degrees) I try to get him to the park to play fetch, but because of the ground being so hard and the snow being compacted he is always injuring his paws some way or another. 

So this is my question, has anybody used some kind of paw protection (dog shoes) to help prevent this? He has torn chunks of his pads off numerous times. I feel so bad not taking him to run because I know how much he loves it. Walking only does so much. He wants to "work" and be active. 

Any suggestions?
