#3 – Endura Luminite Waterproof Gloves

Gloves are essential, but so is the ability to handle the leash, clip/unclip your dog, pick up poop, or just throw the toy. So this means you need waterproof gloves that also allow finger movement. These stretchy, waterproof and windproof gloves are made for bikers so they allow dexterity while providing warmth. Amazon.com

#4 – Traction Magic

This is a good thing to carry around with you if you are playing in the snow away from home. This product does not melt the ice, but it creates an absurd traction on every surface. Traction Magic is made up from a blend of different highly specialized earth crystals that absorb any moisture on the surface and embeds itself into the ice sheet creating a sand paper like traction that can be used on all surfaces and is even safe on freshly poured concrete.  Sticking with total safety, this product is non-toxic and won’t harm anything.  Is your car stuck when you get back to it? This works on black ice, and the most amazing part is that it works instantly. TractionMagic.com
