My canine companion(s): Dalmatian

Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I just put these boots on Georgie today and they are doing fantastic. They don't seem to bother her and haven't fallen off while she's been running and playing. I got these shoes for her to help with her delicate feet while we hike and walk. They have exceeded expectations. Thank you Ruffwear for letting us enjoy painless hikes and walking again!

Love these durable and easy to use

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

One thing that's extremely frustrating is the measuring process especially with a crazy 90 lb puppy!! There needs to be an easier way than the small little measuring strip that is posted. But I love these it took my puppy a little bit to get used to !!! But these are great for walking on the hot pavement and great for protecting my puppy's paws!! Well made and amazing !!

Date of Review: 7/25/2016

We kick up our paws in: Texas

My canine companion(s): Boxer Mix

Does not work for us

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I bought these with the hot TX summers in mind. I take my little gremlin with me everywhere, and I did not want her to burn her paws on hot pavement or sand. She has wide paws and skinny legs. Even cinched all the way down, these do not stay on very well. They twist around or slide off constantly. It took months of putting on just the front or back boots for increasingly longer times before I could get her to wear all four. Seriously, we've been at this since February. And we have to stop at least every 5 minutes to fix them. I recently got the boot liners hoping it would help with the boots twisting around and working their way off, but the liners just end up walking down into the boot and end up in a wad under her paw. Now we are back to her running away and resisting having them put on. They will probably sit in the drawer unused, and we will just stick with paw wax.

Very well made. Great color

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I want to love the booties. Unfortunately I ordered what seems to be a 1/2 too large and the front booties are too big and fall off when Baby Dill walks. I got the Griptex to be his summer bootie. He has a sturdier pair for the snow. The design seems very good though for a stiffer soled boot

Dog's Name: Kai

Date of Review: 7/20/2016

We kick up our paws in: Northern Ontario, Canada

My canine companion(s): Standard Poodle

Excellent quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I ordered these planning a trip to Orlando, Florida in July 2016; unfortunately I had to postpone the trip. However, ironically we have had some of the hottest weather ever here at home so I needed them anyway. Kai looked like a new born foal the first few times we worked on him wearing them but a few minutes of "puppy sit-ups" and he adjusted fine. I still need to fine tune some of his task work (He's a service dog) when he's wearing them because they're a lot harder on me than his paws alone! I do find that I have to make sure that the velcro straps are as tight as possible (and might try socks underneath them) or else he will take them off to give me if we settle for any length of time somewhere!

My canine companion(s): Yellow lab

Not a waste of money

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

E was tearing his pads up on the hot concrete when we would play fetch so I thought the booties would help. They work great when he's not playing too hard but when he takes off the back booties tend to turn. Maybe when it is time to replace them I will buy two singles in a smaller size for his back feet...

unreliable and expensive

We tried these 2 years in a row and each time the boots irritated my dog's dew claw and the pad near it. In addition, one flew off while he was running and was never found. Waste of money!

My canine companion(s): Siberian Husky

City dogs need these!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We are from a suburb in CO. We have always planned to be active with our pups. We haven't gotten a chance to build their pads up or experience any different outdoor terrain other than cement and grass.These boots worked perfectly on our hikes in the Rocky Mountains. The only problem was that one boot turned while he was running and that was it. We recommend that you take your pup into the shop and try on before purchasing. It helped that the REI sales lady was knowledgable about the boots!

We kick up our paws in: Santa Barbara County, CA

My canine companion(s): Australian Cattle Dog

Stellar foot mobbing capability!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My pup is known for having tender toes compared to her crazy Labrador side kick. These boots are a game changer!! The quality of this company keeps me coming back and adding to Shelbaloo's Ruffwear collection (Collar, backpack, jacket.. now booties) and i couldn't be happier. She is extremely comfortable in them, never wearing booties before i thought it would take her a while to get used to them, but i thought wrong. During her first adventure in them she was jumping & running acting like she wasn't even wearing booties. Her front booties did catch on her front dewclaws but since then i have wrapped her dewys with sports wrap and there has been no problems! The boot seems to stick to the sports wrap and Shelbaloo can set off on her adventure without tender toes!! Thanks Ruffwear for always blowing mind with your amazing products!!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have a service dog who had sensitive foot pads after running around a wet pool deck a few days prior. We put these on and she was able to go on a walk on asphalt. It took her about 10 steps and she was happy as she could be.

Good.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

She seems to like them. I was surprised she even let me put them on her. But she did and doesn't seem bothered at all. I do not like that her dew claws stick out on her front fewer. That looks like it could be a problem. So maybe if the boot was a little longer for the fron feet?

I cut into the side of shoe to free his dew claw. From than on these boots performed better then any I tried. I don't know why Grip Trex is listed as a new product. I hope nothing has changed.

We kick up our paws in: Orange County

My canine companion(s): German Shepherd Mix

Disappointed

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I bought these for intense running because my dog loves to pull me on a longboard. I bought two 2.5" and two 2.25" grip trex boots for my 70 lb German Shepherd mix. I went for a test walk and everything seemed fine, but when I got home and took them off my dogs dew claw had been rubbed raw and it was bleeding. I thought maybe because there was no socks this happened, so I went out and bought baby socks. Her claw healed up and we were ready to try the socks and shoes, We go for a run and when we get home, again the dew claw was rubbed raw and bleeding. Overall I was pretty disappointed and upset at this product. I wasted $75 :(

Dog's Name: Tank

Date of Review: 6/18/2016

We kick up our paws in: Edinburgh

My canine companion(s): Staffordshire bull terrier

I expected better

Would you recommend this product?.: No

These are expensive, more so than my shoes and they are made from material that are breathable and waterproof so how come this material has not been used here. Living in Edinburgh we experience rain a lot but having a staffie we have lively walks. Also... The back legs are skinny on my dogs/most dogs compared to the front which makes fastening a nightmare as it fits my dogs back paws but is not holding on as there is to much material to fasten around the leg. Otherwise they are good but much improvement needed considering there claim to them and the price!

fantastic boots

I got these for my rescue pup who had back surgery and sometimes drags his back feet. The boots stay one well, don't seem to bother him at all, and work well with the boot liners, and do a great job protecting his feet.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

As a service dog handler in south Florida it is VERY important my big guys feet are protected from the burning pavement! We've tried countless brands of boots and every single one of them do not fit correctly and fall off! These are HIGH quality boots, the sizing is spot on and they will NEVER fall off! We will never buy boots from anywhere else! Thank you so much Ruffwear!

Great

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Fonzie is my service dog and wears these boots daily when out and about. They look nice and protect paws well. Easy to put on and Velcro closures stay put. The only problem I have is boots twisting around on paws with bottom of boots ending up on top of paws with frequent readjustments.

My canine companion(s): German Shepherd black lab mix

High quality construction

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

These things work great to protect my dogs paws in the 100+ degree heat in Palm Springs. If you're walking or jogging with your dog these things work great. However if you're running your dog hard like I do (chasing geese) daily than you'll lose a boot quick. I'd still buy these boots in a heartbeat. Again, only complaint is they fall off when your dog is running and making hard cuts.

Date of Review: 5/9/2016

We kick up our paws in: Desert southwest

My canine companion(s): German Shorthair Pointer

Very good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Sizing is tricky. If you really need a boot you probably should get one size smaller for the back feet. I have problems with the rear coming off. 2nd Velcro strap would help. I run my pointers hard across volcanic rock and cactus. Competitors boot wears holes, but they do stay on. Going old school with duct tape and chunks of inner tube stays on also but looks like bizarre flippers. Ask yourself, does your dog really need a high performance boot? When they stay on, these are the best. I own 3 sets one size apart to get the right fit for two dogs. I've lost 3 boots. Expensive...... They look great though!

Best boots on the market

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We have been using the grip trex on our service dogs since 2009. We still use the original set and they are holding up great. Our dogs are trained as guides to work with the blind and as such, are out every day putting in the miles. We are in the Palm Springs area and with the extreme heat of the summer (115+), the pavement would cause severe burns to our dogs pads. Ruffwear boots provide the safety and comfort that allows our dogs to work year round.

My canine companion(s): Mini Goldendoodle

Excellant

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

It took me 3 different tries of boots that did not stay on or were very slippery for our dog before I found these with our previous dog Ellie a full Golden Retriever, When we got Abby a mini golden doodle it was in December and she was 8 weeks old. I had her wearing them right out the chute, now its second nature to her, she runs like crazy and with her white and brown coat they look great in Red on her. I found that they are the most expensive but they stay on and work very well thorough mud, snow and salt. No issues with quality, normal wear and tear as with any shoe your kids would wear growing up.

Grossly Disappointed

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I bought these shoes twice. First pair fell apart the first day, took them back and replaced them at the store. Second pair fell apart in about 2 days. Velcro straps broke, stitches came apart, velcro came off the strap, the cinching buckle turns sideways which loosens the boots and then they fall off. The stitching that holds the sole on came apart. And this is on 3 of the 4 boots- not just one lemon, and on two sets of them.

High quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Great quality. However, I am not convinced that the design is the best, but it may just be the anatomy of my dog. Booties come up and just underneath the Dew Claws, and I believe that causes some annoyance to her. Rears appear to be fine. We did loose a bootie last week climbing the Manitou Incline in Colorado :/. It was a front too.

Best boots out there.... I tried 'em all!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Durable and provide great protection. My model is the re-design from circa 2011. Love all the sizing options as that's critical. Don't be surprised if u need smaller boots for the rear paws. I do have to use the socks and some horse wrap under the boot to keep my rowdy girl from throwing the boots when on a run. They're almost perfect, save for having to wrap all Allie's ankles with the stretch wrap before putting them boots on.... sucks to lose these boots!

My canine companion(s): Golden Retrievers

Love them!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have 2 pair of the older model and I can't believe that they're still is great shape. I ran on the street with 2 golden's for 3 years with these boots, to protect them from the chemicals, grit, or hot pavement. Both boys have since gone to the Rainbow Bridge. I now use a pair on our new golden and they're still great! You do have to readjust them at times. I joke and say that the dogs can expand their feet when you put them on just like horses expand their chest when put a saddle on them. The boot liners make it easier to get them on and adjust to the proper tightness. I like the new color blue and will get them when and if these ever wear out.

Could be great, but fails

Would you recommend this product?.: No

The rubber is good vibram rubber, and they fit the dogs feet well, staying in place, not turning too much, etc. A couple big problems with them, first, the first ones we got fell apart the first day, stitching pulled out, so we had them replaced. Second pair lasted 3 days backpacking. Design flaws, cheap velcro poorly sewn on the tightening straps, tears pretty quickly. Even bigger design flaw, the straps are not rigid, so the "cinching buckle" it feeds through doesn't stay oriented, and eventually turns sideways, which makes it longer, letting the boots loosen and fall off. Fix those two issues, and then make it with more durable straps, and it'd be an awesome product. Until then, solid rubber clam shell boots will prevail

Did 3 hours, the first time wearing boots, at the Minneapolis Loppet a winter ski/dog event. Hundreds of dogs and cross country skiers in attendance. Alternating street salt slush and frozen lake snow. Paws stayed dry and warm the entire time. Normally city road salt slush causes frozen paws. A great urban salt slush winter solution.
