Dog's Name: Ouray

We kick up our paws in: Denver

My canine companion(s): Lab mixed/service dog

High quality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Ouray wears these boot almost daily. She is a service dog. I have had no trouble keeping them on or putting them on her. The only thing I have to watch for is the top will sometimes twist to the bottom.

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.

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!

My canine companion(s): Standard Poodle

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.

Best boot ever!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

As my dog got older, she started slipping on the floors. I bought these boots and she has no trouble slipping anymore. I would recommend them for older dogs for traction. I've recommended them to many.

Excellent

These boots really stay on. Our dog drags one of her feet, so the boots keep her feet from being damaged.

Dog's Name: Abigail

Date of Review: 3/25/2016

We kick up our paws in: downtown Minneapolis

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.

Love Them!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Brady & Alex have had their boots 4 yrs & they are still great & like new. Zena will be getting a pair soon. Our dogs are service dogs so we try to make sure their feet are protected. Brady wears the biggest size so he has 2 pairs of boots(I had found out the extra large ones aren't made anymore :-( )

My canine companion(s): Boxer

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.

My canine companion(s): German Shepherd x

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!

We kick up our paws in: New Jersey

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

Great quality - works well.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

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.
