Many people assume a dog's paws are tough enough to withstand most any surface. However, the truth is that, like us, the canine body acclimates to its day-to-day environment. So, if a dog generally lives indoors with daily walks on smooth sidewalks and you take him on a 9-mile hike on a rough trail, he may well suffer varying degrees of paw damage. We’ve heard many times of dogs needing to be carried back down the trail due to paw injuries. If this happens to be the first day of a two-week vacation, you have a problem on your hands. Paw protection can save a trip from disaster. The Ruffwear Grip Trex Dog Boots are an all-terrain boot with a tough Vibram sole suitable for on or off-trail use.
City streets can be problematic for a dog as well. Cement and asphalt can be extremely hot in summer, icy in winter or have unknown contaminants or chemicals that can cause injury. These dangers can be nullified with Ruffwear’s Summit Trex Dog Boots. They are more flexible than the trail boots with a lighter sole.
Other boot applications include traction on boats and help for dog’s requiring some mobility assistance. Dog booties for hardwood floors are a popular accessory.
We offer Ruffwear’s boots because they are the best dog boots in terms of fit, durability and comfort for the dog. They are also the best dog boots that stay on!
Each boot product page contains links to helpful instruction on selecting, fitting and using dog boots.
