    Buy In pairs!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These are great if they fit right. However my doggos back paws are smaller than his front and the first set i got for him fell off immediately. Once i sized a new pair correctly they stay on well, even when running full tilt.

    Wanted to love these! But didn't stay on

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I purchased these for my dog because her paws get snowballs stuck to her fur and they freeze. I measured her paws and ordered the correct sizes. I can tell they're high quality boots but they simply didn't stay on. After one run she lost a boot in the sage brush. I hope that Ruffwear can iterate on these to make them even better, it's a great idea and I love the brand.

    Failed in Many Ways

      First of all, they do not stay on. I have two ~18 lb Bichon Cockapoos. I'm convinced that there are no dog boots anywhere that do stay on. Another reviewer suggested mitten clips; and I've been using those with fairly good success, clipping them to my dogs' coats (take care that you don't clip their hair). Inside the zippered portion of these boots is a velcro strap. The way the strap is situated makes it impossible to really tighten it. I considered deconstructing the boot and removing the velcro strap, given that I'm using the mitten clips, but for $200, I don't think I should have to deconstruct the boots. I also bought the Ruffwear socks to go inside the boots, but these proved useless, as they slid down into the boots. I considered including the sock in the mitten clip, but worried about how comfortable tugging on the sock might be for the dogs. The biggest issue I had with these boots, though, was that they are so hard inside that they rubbed on my dogs' legs and caused blisters. I went on one walk with these on my dogs and had to take the boots off 15 minutes into the walk because they were irritating the dogs to the point where they kept stopping and licking at the sore, rubbed spots. I saw that another reviewer mentioned this as well. So, as cute and durable as these were, they were an epic fail. Back to the search. Ugh.

      Dog Boots

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought this for my friends dog and it definitely took a little while for her to get used to them. Now that she is they seem to work great, no more frozen or torn up pads.

      Dog Boots

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The first few times that i put these on my dog were fairly challenging due to his lack of experience with having boots on. Once on, the first few steps are always fun to watch him walk. He walks/runs normally after the first few steps, though. He wears them on colder days when it's snowy and has yet to have any problems. The gaitors on the top help to keep the snow out and lock the boot on his paws. I would recommend them to anyone looking to go on a longer adventure with a dog who gets cold paws in the snow!

      Great Boot So Far

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      We're just getting used to wearing these but they are definitely doing the job protecting my dog's paws. The materials are tough and the traction coming from them seems to be helping a lot with slick icy conditions. Good quality, pretty easy to put on, I recommend them.

      Great - once your dog gets used to them

        We bought these for our German Wirehair Mix after she started yelping the first cold day of the year from cold paws. Make sure to measure correctly - not the easiest thing to do. We put them on her for the first time when she was lying on the coach - can’t say she loved them!! Tried not to laugh but it was definitely pretty funny. She got used to them eventually.

        Nice quality boots

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        We bought these boots for our dog for the winter with the snow and salt on the roads. They take some getting used to, but seem to stay on securely. The size chart is very helpful in picking the right size.

        Decent quality; Awkward fit

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        I ordered the 1.75 in shoes for my 25 pound 1 year old blue heeler
        I wish these would have worked out for my dog, the materials seem durable and high quality. They are super cute, however, they do not stay on his paws. I had to cinch the velcro down as far as it could go and it was still too loose. They would fall off if I were to take him out to use them in the snow. If your dog has abnormally thick legs they might work for you! But if your dog has normal legs, im not sure I could recommend these.
        They come with a nice little bag to store the boots in and in a nice ruffwear box with a sizing chart for your dogs paws!

        Initial Thoughts

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Just tried the 4xs on our 19 pound Welsh Terrier seem to fit fine. The 3xs were too big. We tried some off market fleece booties/socks, but kept losing them. These are more sturdy for sure with the velcro and zipper. Hoping they stay on.
