Some technicalities: you have to velcro them on pretty tight, but they stay on. As you can imagine, it takes a few minutes to put 4 boots on a dog (and in her case, a hoodie and a coat). They are worth the time when you can take your dog out to poop guilt-free though, and in my Sophie's case, she's very agreeable to wearing them. She actually only walked a little weird in them the first time and after that they didn't seem to bother her at all. Over all, an expensive purchase but sometimes you get what you pay for. Four paws up on these Muttluks!
Update: I added a video to give you an idea of how Sophie moves in her boots. Our other dog (who is way tougher than Sophie is) refuses to wear boots and I had to be carry him home just before I made this video due to cold toes. As you can see, she wasn't having any issues in the cold and snow. Plus, she's super cute (:
One of my dogs get's hotspots on his feet and during the winter months with snow, salt, and chemicals applied to the NYC sidewalks and streets life for his footies can be painful. I've searched everywhere for something that would be comfortable to wear, wouldn't fall off and would protect against salt and chemicals with no avail.
Mukluks by far are the best boots I've found they fit him well and don't fall off on walks but their NOT waterproof. As the saying goes necessity (desperation) is the mother of invention. I happened to have a bar of Otter Wax i had used to waterproof some material.
For all four boots I'm not going to lie it took about 2 hours but it was well worth it! Below are all the steps i used. I'm confident my boy's feet would stay dry walking through small puddles but i think they would leak if fully submerged. As with any other waterproofing this would require maintenance of keeping them clean, washing with leather soap and re- waterproofing on occasion. The Otter Was doesn't stretch the material and as time goes by like with any other waterproofing product the more you maintain and reapply the more waterproof the item becomes.
Note: The company suggests putting them in the washer... after the wax is applied that would be a really bad idea.
Needed: Hair dryer, Ottor wax, a soft toothbrush, some rags
Step one: unwrap the velco tabs and move them aside so they don't get dirty (the black leather does bleed a little (not much)
Step two: use a hair dryer to warm (I used high heat) the soles including the seamed areas.
Step three: rub the wax into the leather and make sure to get plenty on the seams If you get any on the front heat the wax; it wipes off.
I used a soft toothbrush to rub the wax into the seams as well as into the leather itself. reheat, reapply wax until the rigid and rough leather surface
is %100 percent smooth. It took about 30 min per boot but again for us it was well worth it. although i did waterproof the seams i was careful not to get wax on the front nylon portion although if i needed I'll go back and rework that area.
I posted pics below... The boot on the right hasn't been touched. The boot in the middle is finished and the one on the left is almost finished.
After i was finished i put them in the sink and left them there to test my handy work and they held up as expected!
There are plenty of how to videos on you tube you can find that may help. I'll add that the boots actually being water proof depends entirely on your handy work. For many it might not be worth the two hours and maintaining the waterproofing but for us it is.
A friend immediately recommended the Muttlucks. I scoffed and said that I had already tried them and they were ridiculous. He laughed at me and said that I must have bought the wrong size, directing me to the company website for sizing instructions and tips on how to acclimate your dog to wearing the boots. After reading the product information and recommendations in detail (the earlier pair I had bought retail at a pet supply store) I decided to give them another chance.
The size needed and color I preferred was not available from the manufacturer, so I came here to Amazon and found a pair. Had I bought them earlier in the season, I could have bought them for half the cost, but I was clearly not the only dog owner looking for a solution for frozen paws in 2015. I worried again if this was going to be an expensive failure.
Putting them on for the first time was just hysterical. My dog was reasonably compliant but he had this...what are you doing to me....expression on his face that was just pathetic and very funny. The manufacturer instructions were to get them on all the way and then use the velcro straps to secure them tightly. I learned that really, the tighter the better. I also kept the knit sock portion pulled all the way up his leg, which was very silly looking, but this was all about function over form. When he took his first steps in the kitchen with the Muttluks on, I was pretty skeptical. He was walking like Bambi when he first stands up. But others had told me that the key was to get your dog out and moving with them on. And so we did. The first walk was not easy. He was walking like Bambi and I kept worrying that the boots were going to fall off. They didn't. The walking got better as he realized that he was outside and his paws were not cold. The next day it was a little easier getting the boots on. By the end of 5 days, he was really fine with me putting the boots on. I think the association with boots and walk had already been established.
We walked every day for about an hour with the boots on (and a coat) through March. After the snow had melted quite a bit and it was not as bitterly cold, we still used the boots because they were now keeping his paws dry and preventing all of the snow, ice melt and chemical and winter slop from being tracked into the house. I didn't see any other dog wearing boots this winter, but we were stopped regularly by other dog owners asking about how they worked, did my dog like them, etc. When we went to the vets for an annual physical, his vet was so impressed with the product and how my dog wore and walked in them that he took him to two other examining rooms to show other dog owners who had been lamenting the difficulty getting their dogs out in the winter, what they looked like and how they worked.
I washed them twice. Once midway through the winter and another time at the end of the season. They had plenty of mileage on them but stood up to laundering well and we are all set for next winter. I am so happy with my purchase and I really recommend them enthusiastically to any dog owner. One bit of advice - buy them before the season starts. You will be able to find the size and color you want and will most likely not have to pay the premium price you will have to pay if the weather increases demand. That said, I think these Muttluks were worth every penny that I paid for them two times over this past season.
