Love my Grip Trex!!

I am really impressed with the quality of the booties. I love them! My fur baby recently had surgery on her leg and now one paws drags a little and scrapes the ground filing down 2 of her nails to the pink wick which causes it to bleed if I take her for a walk more than 15 min. I wanted a good quality boot which will last long and I got it I measured her paws just like the video showed but I think I may need a smaller size. The boots came off a couple times while on the walk. Can you please send me the next size down to see if it will fit better? I’ve been meaning to send you an email earlier letting you know this. Thank you for your time

Great boots!

These boots are a must for Extreme weather. We live in the desert so There’s no question that we need these for the hot pavement and trail walks. But please remember to buy these separately in sets of two for front paws and back paws since there’s a difference in size. Also keep in mind of their dew claws. For reference in photos, Ravyn is a 90lb Shiloh Shepherd and I bought the size 2.75” for her back paws and 3.00” for her front. They do stay on well, a couple times getting in and out of the pool, one has fallen off (probably my fault when putting them on) Our trail walk went great and they stayed on well and protected her from the hot sand and sharp rocks. As always Ruffwear is very durable and well made, I definitely recommend these!

Game changer for an old dog

I don't know if the dog loves them, but I do. He's 14 with bad knees. The shoes provide grip so he can get up easily, without doing the cartoon character slipping. There are sturdy and stay on really well. They do make his feet smell like Fritos, and we take them off at night. As soon as I put them on he runs to grab a toy so he can play tug-o-war. The shoes are very well constructed, from good materials. He only wears them in the house, so I don't know how well they would last on rough terrain. If you have a dog that needs more traction on hard surfaces, these are the shoes to get. Make sure to follow the instructions on how to size them, don't guess.

Well made booties, just don't fit our dog well

Our dog has small paws without much of an ankle to secure the boots around. The boots work well when they are on, but fall off every now and then on walks, unfortunately. On a 1-mile walk they rubbed one of her paws, making a small raw patch. I am sure these boots would work well for other dogs, but just not for us!

Bad design Great Idea

My wife and I do a lot of hiking, walking, and running with our dog. We bought these to combats hot pavement, cold pavement, and pokey rocks. We thought about getting these for a long while before we finally got them. Almost immediately we noticed that the boots would rub a lot of places raw and leaving lots of scrapes. Some his knuckles and in the area where the boot Velcro straps tighten. This happened during walks (short & long), hikes, runsThere was no sweet spot where they were tight enough to stay on and loose enough to not cause injury from rubbing. We thought it was the shoe size but, we determined that the size we had were the appropriate size. The main issues is that the aren't designed very well. The strap fixes on to where their ankle/metacarpus/carpus is. Since this area is always bending, it causes a lot of friction on those areas. If the strap were further up the forearm, this would help the strap issue. And make them harder to fall off. Also the inside of the boot is not lined and the material inside is coarse. Also, the surfaces have a lot of areas where materials are joined and create edges that bend in towards flesh. If they look at the mechanics and the bending of dog paws and change the material cuts and plan out the locations of stitching for more comfort.
