So how do you get your dogs accustomed to Paws dog boots and what other things can you do for paw care? Here you go:
Boots are FANTASTIC!!! They stay on and don't twist around! The double straps are perfect! I've attached a picture of Brady wearing them on his back feet. He's almost 12 and really isn't as sad looking as the picture portrays!....or, he's trying to make us feel sorry for him! NOT! He's fine! Once he figured out he needed to pick his feet up a little more, he's had no problem getting around SAFELY!! He can get up from laying down SO much easier! He doesn't get 'pushed around' as my other dogs fly by him., and best of all, when he gets excited and bounces around, his back legs no longer slide out from under him!!TRACTION!!! He's got it! Brady's such a good boy, and did his time in 'service' to others as a Leader Dog for the Blind for a gentleman in North Carolina. I got him back after his partner died. I was Brady's puppy raiser years ago. He's a yellow lab and as a lab, lives to eat! These are truly a lifesaver for him! Thanks so much! Janice W., Illinois (Ultra Paws® Durable)
Eureka! We have an elderly cocker spaniel with severe weakness in his rear end. He's had a terrible time staying upright on our slippery floors. We've tried every traction sock, balloon and boot out there. They wouldn't stay on or were so tight they caused pain and still wouldn't stay on. Today we received our Durable Dog Boots. He's had them on for six hours. They're still on and he has not stopped bouncing around. HE'S SO HAPPY! Thank you, thank you for returing his quality of life. They are a god-send -- really. He was falling 10-12 times a day and it looked like we might have to put him to sleep pre-maturely. It chokes me up to see him getting around so well, and it's obvious that he's delighted. Really, there is NOTHING out there that compares to these boots for elderly dogs. Rae G., California (Ultra Paws® Durable)

As with all Ruffwear products, fit is paramount in ensuring the highest performance of the Grip Trex boots. To guarantee the proper fit, measure the width of your dog’s paws.Your dog should quickly adapt to the strangeness of shoes on his feet and begin to walk normally again. Be sure to administer plenty of treats when you put boots on paws so your dog learns to happily anticipate their application. If he always wears his boots when he goes for a hike, they will become a reliable predictor of great times, and he will get as excited about seeing them in your hand as he does his leash.Another good option to protect pet paws is booties. Try Ultra Paws® Durable and Traction Dog Boots. Easy to put on with Velcro straps and skid resistant soles, they will keep paws warm and dry. Remember to check that Velcro straps are not too tight; the boot should be snug so that they don’t slip off but not so tight it constricts the paw. Dogs tend to not to like wearing the boots, so acclimate them by putting them on your dog for short periods of time in the house first.To that end, when you expect that your dog is likely to encounter damaging conditions on a walk, you have your choice of remedies. There are waxes and balms meant to go on before and after walks. There are dog boots, dog socks, and even snappy dog shoes, which all have the advantage of not requiring that you wash your dog’s paws after a stroll. The disadvantage is that outerwear isn’t natural for your pup and they might hate walking in them. Figure out what works best for your dog using our list of options here.
