Westies dogs' owners delight in the companionship their dogs give them during long and leisurely walks. But this activity should be one that brings pleasure to both.
How can you ensure that your dog also enjoys these activities?
First, you'll need to get your dog accustomed to having his paws handled and manipulated.
These are important Westie health issues that come under the grooming umbrella.
When your dog is tolerant of such treatment it would be easier for both you and the veterinarian to carefully scrutinize your dog if there are cuts or bruises on, in and around his paws.
Where should these foot exams take place? Pick a spot that's comfortable for both of you, and is at the same time well-lit. Here's how to do it. Put the dog's paw in your hand. Run your finger around every pad. If you feel lumps, examine it closely to find out what it is.
Keep a pair of tweezers handy, to pull out bits of twig that may be stuck.
If the skin is broken, put anti-bacterial ointment or powder on the sore. Check the next day to ensure it heals completely. Refrain from taking a walk with your dog in the next couple of days, until the healing is completed.
Here's what you should do if you find a lump in one foot that's not present in the other foot. Get your dog to the vet. He or she may have an abscess or an interdigital cyst.
Examine and trim the paws regularly.
Regularly trim all the hair that's out from between the pads. Don't trim it too tight. If you see a matt of hair sticking out, cut it. Don't strip or pull the hairs. It's painful for your dog.
Here's what to do if your pet's paws are itchy. Look for these symptoms; the hairs and even the nails are a reddish brown. The pads are swollen. This means yeast and bacteria already be developing in the crevices between the pads and around the nails. Visit your vet so he or she can recommend medication to reduce the swelling and alleviate the itching.
Doing regular examinations on your Westies (Scottish in origin) dog's paw prior to and after your walks, will make your dog eagerly await each sojourn.

Because your dog lives with humans, he's going to have to learn to deal with frustration sometimes, because you shouldn't let things always go his way if you're to be a responsible dog owner.
