Our boots are here to help keep those paws protected for every adventure. Let’s face it our pups are our family and we want them to join in on the fun and be safe while doing it.
Our shoes come in eight sizes (sizing guide is located in the pictures - or just reach out if we can lend a helping paw). We recommend using the sizing guide as even dogs within the same breed can vary in terms of sizing. Some sample breeds based on average weight (for reference only - please do not guess based on breed). Since these are reference points your pup of the same breed may vary up or down a size, but please reach out to us with your paw measurements so we can better assist you:
- Size 1: Chihuahua, Boston Terrier (Dogs under 10 pounds have trouble with the weight of shoes)
- Size 2: Shiba Inu, Pug
- Size 3: Beagle, Corgi
- Size 4: Bulldog, Australian Shephard
- Size 5: Siberian Husky, Standard Poodles, Boxer
- Size 6: Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retriever, Goldendoodle, Pitbull, German Shephard
- Size 7: Rottweiler, Dobermann
- Size 8: Great Dane, Bernese Mountain Dog
If you need any help with sizing or once you receive your boots, we have tips and tricks - just reach out and we can help you right away.
Dogs should slowly adjust to wearing their new boots inside the house several times before going on a long walk or hike outside. By rewarding your dog with a treat each time you put the shoes on and fasten the two straps it will speed up the adjustment time. After using the shoes outdoors in the mud, rain, snow, and dirt please handwash and air dry.

Reading all these reviews and talking to friends guided my expectations as well as how I tried out these booties. Also, I read reviews on booties for actual mushing dogs, and it sounds like:
a) They can fall off if not strapped on tight;
B) They do wear out, especially if you're running/walking your dog a lot. (One musher dude said he brings like 3,000 dog booties with him on the Iditarod). So if you're walking your dog in them every single day, expect them to wear out fairly quickly.
C) I heard from a friend that her dogs' paws swelled up after wearing them, so I watched for this.
D) Be sure you clip all your dogs nails, including dew claws! Or else they rub and hurt your dog (blood!) and tear through the booties
So - got the booties - put em on the dog, and let him play around our house. Immediately one fell off. Called him back, strapped em on a bit tighter, pulling on them to make sure they wouldn't slide off, and set him free again. It's adorable the first time, by the way. The feel so weird to them, that they high-step around like a clydesdale, clopping around the house. We left them on him for ~30 minutes, throwing the ball around. They stayed on. He didn't mind them. No swollen paws.
Next night: it snowed! So we let him out in the snow. He played for ~45 mins around our yard, bounding through the snow. Chased us on the sled, bounded after a tennis ball. Booties stayed on. No swelling.
Next day: More snow! Took him outside and played dog snow frisbee for about an hour. Also played shovel-the-front-path-and-throw-all-the-snow-in-dog's-face. He loved it. Was adorable in his booties. None fell off. No swelling.
Yesterday: Played some more just around the house. Noticed a little blood in the snow, and he kept lifting up his right paw as though to lick it. Got inside, checked the paw.... his dew claw was too long, and it rubbed and rubbed on the bootie till it bled. So we clipped all his nails short, including dew claw.
Today: Still trying the booties out to make sure they don''t hurt him and we don't screw anything up. Took him on a 15 minute walk + 30 mins of snow frisbee. One bootie fell off because I did not strap it on tight enough. Put it back on, strapped tighter, oilá! No problems.
At this point, I think they are great and do their job. I expect them to wear out if I take him walking in them every day. I expect them to get lost if I don't put them on tight enough.
From the 10 or so negative or less-than-perfect reviews I have read, I think people are expecting too much. Dogs probably take a zillion more steps than we do per walk, hence, the booties wear out fast. LIke I said, Iditarod dude carries 3,000+ booties. Their claws need to be trimmed just like ours do so we don't poke holes in our socks or get black or bloody toe nails. And they gotta be strapped on tighter than you think. Then, START SMALL! 5 mins, ten mins... try em out to make sure you don't 'have any kinda user error.
NOTE: I mis-read the questions and thought i had to order a quantity of TWO items in order to cover four paws. But ordering TWO gave me two sets of four. I think I will keep them, since I expect the first pair to wear out.
Thank you My Busy Pet!
I measured Gus's paws by placing a blank piece of paper on the floor under one paw, then picking up the opposite paw (so all of his weight was shifted to the paw on the floor) and tracing the width of the paw on the paper. I measured both a front paw and a hind paw, since there can be discrepancies between them. Gus was kind of between sizes, so I opted for the larger size and the shoes fit great. It took him a few minutes to get used to walking with these shoes on, but he caught on quickly and was trotting around in our yard in no time!
I put these little shoes on him (size 1) and with in 20 minutes he was like "Super-Dog"! Running twice as fast and for as twice as long, jumping, climbing, and exploring places of tough terrain he had never wanted to go before. He is now filled with such exuberance! He is very happy with these shoes on. They fit very well, don't slip off, go on easily, and are attractive. My dog doesn't try to take them off or bother with them in any way while wearing them.
I still have to wait and see how long they last, he has only been wearing them for a couple of days.

First the size 7 boots - They are fantastic, a 5 star, the best dog boots we ever purchased and we have tried everything. Kodiak the large dog has very sensitive feet and the salt our apartment usees on the walkways and driveway makes his feet bleed. I found the boot itself to be very well made of quality materials. It opens very easily and is fast to put on and off and, best of all Kodiak likes wearing them.
Now the bad news!
The size 5 boots are only a 2 star, made with inferior Velcro. Right from the beginning, Bailey's boots the smaller dog were constantly coming off every time we walked him. I went to Canadian Tire and bought long strips of an elastic material with 2" velcro tabs on the end. Unfortunately, this didn't help either.
My husband sent a message to the Manufacturer through Amazon asking if we could exchange the boots for the smallest size that uses the better quality Velcro but we haven't received any messages from either party. We also asked to return the boots for a larger size because we tried Kodiak's boots on Bailey and they were fine even though they were too big on him.
Right now I'm sewing a cuff on Bailey's boots to cover the Velcro straps and hopefully keep them from falling off.
So right now I am an unhappy customer.
