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.

Snow Hiking

With the Velcro and zip these stay on well. It allows my smaller pup to hike in the low to mid snow levels and I don’t have to worry about his little feet getting frozen. Size is important.

Great quality product and best customer service!

Every winter My dogs have frostbite since we moved to Germany. We tried different brand of dog boots on them, they didn’t like any of them. But my dogs like to wear ruffwear dog boots. I am so impressed ruffwear customer service team, they are so friendly and so helpful. Thank you very much for your great service!!!

Once she got used to...

Once she got used to having them on her feet, she loved being able to go for long walks in the snow.

Needed help with sizing and had to Exchange one set -but- the Ruffwear team was VERY helpful and handled the switch very well Once i had the right size it took only two days to get my dog used to them and he did really well after that. Wrapping the dew claws in front helped also. Looking forward to another snow in a couple of days and I’m actually looking forward to using them again. These guys get high marks!
