The Ruffwear Polar Trex dog boots are designed for warmth, traction, and protection in winter conditions. Insulated upper softshell fabric creates breathable, weatherproof warmth in extreme cold and inclement weather. Ruffwear-designed Vibram® outsole provides optimum traction on frozen surfaces.

Closure system combines hook-and-loop with hardware, cinching around the narrowest part of the dog’s leg to provide a secure fit. Pullover stretch gaiter keeps snow out and improves retention by protecting the hook-and-loop ankle closure from the elements.

Just as you would with your gear, adjust fit and check tension of boots 15 minutes into your activity and throughout the adventure as needed.

Good. I used them on my springer spaniel when hunting late season (January 1-5, 2019) pheasants in South Dakota. It was winter on the Northern Great Plains. Temps below well zero and 8-12 inches of snow on the ground. Massive snow drifts in places. The boots did a good job of preventing snow from building up between his toes. They also protected his pads from frostbite. He did lose one boot the first day. The next morning I wrapped duct tape around the top of the boot and they stayed on the rest of the week. These are very good boots for working dogs. Jim Stutzman, Missoula, Montana

Great Shoes!

We have used them several times in very deep snow and frigid temperatures. Every time they did the job as advertised. I would highly recommend these shoes.

Shilo loves her new Polar Trex

I live where the terrain is rough on the paws, the ice is cold and slippery, so these boots are protective, stay on her paws when she climbs, runs, pulls her wagon, and runs the trails. This is my second pair. The 1st pair lasted from one very precious dog’s life to the present. The old pair is still usable, but the tread is gone, making her slide, so I had to purchase a new pair. I’m hoping the plastic zippers last long and do not break. Thank you Ruffwear for always making improvements for my fur baby’s well being.

Polar Trex

We are very happy with these boots. The soles are sturdy and our dog’s paws are well-protected. The only thing is that the gaiters don’t keep out snow, and consequently become soaked, as does our dog’s paws

Great for snow and salty streets

Bought these for my year old australian shepherd to deal with snow and salty roads during our walks and excursions. First, they can fit snugly for their purpose and putting them on is a two-handed effort. They don't slip on easily like the sock-type boots do. However, once on they stay on through the snow and rough-housing my aussie does with the other dogs in the house while playing in the snow in the backyard. Our town treats the roads with lots of chemicals and salts so try to use these on our road walks. They fit the purpose well. My only item of note is that after longer road walks, my aussie will lick his paws after removing the boots. Not sure if I improperly sized them. But it doesn't seem to be an issue when romping in the snow. Looking at the paws I don't see any hotspots when he's licking and I don't think there's chafing or anything. But that is just an observation. It was fairly quick to get him to be comfortable in the boots. A few indoor session and then he was fine when wearing them out in the snow.
