Dog's Name: Celeste

Date of Review: 7/19/2014

We kick up our paws in: Lebanon, MO

My canine companion(s): Beauceron

Best I've found in quite a while!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The Summit Trex boots are great for my Service Dog. Having to be on hot concrete and pavement is a problem in the summer months. These protect her paws very well while giving her enough traction to avoid slipping. Plus, with her double-dewclaws, the way they fit around her "ankles" is SO much better than any other boot I've used. I'm very pleased!

Dog's Name: Pitchou

Date of Review: 7/18/2014

We kick up our paws in: Dakar

My canine companion(s): Coton Mutt

Pretty good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I knew, before buying the shoes, that small dog owners were not impressed by them --- I'd read the comments; but given the place I live and the extremely filthy, nearly non existent sidewalks, not having dog shoes was not an option, so I bought the shoes anyway, hoping that the shoes would work with my 6.5lbs. mutt. He's had them for about a week, now, and that's how long it's taken him to learn how to walk with them (given I walk him about three times a day, for about 30 minutes) --- not that he couldn't walk with them... just that the shoes would slip off easily in the beginning and I'd have to slip them back on again and again and again.... and again. It takes patience, especially as the walks get longer; but it seems like it was worth it as they finally stay on! I'm not sure why they kept on slipping off in the beginning while they don't know; maybe I chose the wrong size when I bought them (although I'm not sure I'd have been able to slip the shoes on as well, had they been smaller); maybe because the tread part is too long (someone else has comment on that and I do believe Pitchou would have had an easier time learning how to walk with them had they been shorter); or both. But I guess what it all comes down to, in the end, is that the boots work and my dog is happy with them on --- a week's time isn't much when I'll look back after a year, especially as they look really well made, and made to last! I do recommend them but I also do think Ruffwear can make some improvements.

Dog's Name: Sulley

Date of Review: 7/12/2014

We kick up our paws in: United States

My canine companion(s): Catalan Sheepdog

Rubbed his dew claw pads completely RAW!!!

Would you recommend this product?.: No

Since Sulley is my service dog, he goes with me everywhere and sometimes that's on hot pavement. I wanted booties that would keep his poor feet from getting burned. After trying all we could in various stores I settled on these. The guide was helpful on the box and they fit well. They stayed on well minus when I accidentally flat-tired him and that one popped off. My issue is this... BOTH his dew claw pads were rubbed COMPLETELY RAW in just a few hours of wear. Yes, I'm aware that there are "socks" you can buy with them, but if these boots are going to RUB OPEN SORES ONTO YOUR DOG'S PADS, then they need to just up the price a bit and INCLUDE the socks. I'm absolutely horrified and now my poor guy is laying here next to me with bandages on both his front feet and IN PAIN while I have to either be vigilant in watching him to keep him from licking/tearing the bandages or make him wear a cone. I bought these boots to AVOID medical problems with the pads of his feet, NOT to CAUSE them! So disappointed...

Date of Review: 7/7/2014

We kick up our paws in: Rancho Cucamonga, CA

My canine companion(s): Boxer

Well made but don't work

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I did my research and was sooo excited about these. But after having them on my the spin around when my dog runs and every 30-60 seconds I have to stop him and spin them back around. I sized them right and pulled the Velcro as tight as they would go. If they were any smaller I wouldn't be able to get them around his paws. But they just won't stay in place and after two wearing they have holes on the tops of the shoes because after they spin around he is actually walking or running of them upside down. I think you should make these with the same material all over on the top and the bottom so when they do slip around they won't get holes in them.

I thought I had the boots on tight enough, but one turned over on her foot the very first time we walked, and the street damaged the top. I like them though for the durability of the sole. Florida streets are hot and they take care of that.

My canine companion(s): Border Collie Mix

Good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The quality of the boots is very good. I used them for hiking around rocky areas to protect my dogs paws. It took a little getting used to, and I had to tighten them down quite a bit. The first hike, a couple of the booties would fall off until I figured how tight they needed to be. The paw measurements I took for her size are pretty exact! I am glad I did not go any smaller, I could have possibly even gone a little bit larger as they fit her pretty snug. Overall though, they work great and she got many compliments and photos taken because of them :)

Very well made.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I got these boots for the warmer months. The pavement get hot and I do not want my service dog's feet to get too hot. I used these boots twice and they are holding up wonderfully. I was extremely accurate with the sizing and they fit like a glove. The front right boot would rotate around my dog's feet but I'm at fault for not tightening it enough. Overall, these are the only boots my SD likes, and I think the work wonderful. No complaints!

Dog's Name: Scooby

Date of Review: 5/15/2014

We kick up our paws in: Denver, CO

My canine companion(s): Aussie Cattle Mix

Very Frustrating to put on my dog

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I purchased these for the super cold winters we have in Denver. I purchased the socks and the boots for my dog. Although impressed by the quality of the product. I was super disappointed in the complexity of physically getting these on my dog's feet correctly. These are so hard to get on correctly that I have never been able to get my dog to sit still long enough to get all four on his paws and adjusted to the point I would feel he was ready to go outside in them. These were a waste of money for me, have never been used outside and went right back in the box and into storage in the closet. The two that I was able to get on my dog, fit very strangely I am not sure I would trust these to actually stay on if he were running around in the snow outside. Oh, buyer beware, they do not come with any suggestions for easily getting them on your pet's paws. Which would be very helpful, as I am sure there is a method for putting these on your pet quickly. I don't know of any dog that would sit perfectly still long enough to wrestle these on their paws the way you are required to do for a proper fit. I am only giving 2 stars for the quality of the materials used to make the product. Fit and ease of use I would give maybe a 1 star.

My canine companion(s): Pitbull

mized

Would you recommend this product?.: No

My dog has terrible allergies to fresh cut grass. In the spring and summer, she needs boots to protect her. These boots although high quality just don't fit well. They are difficult to get on, and then once her foot is in them, they are too large and slip off and spin around. I measured the way they suggested, I'm just not sure if this design will work and that's a shame because they are not cheap boots. I am going to try ordering a zip up boot w a smaller "pad" area and see if that works.

I bought these boots because the Grip Trex rubbed my working dog's dew claw and for that situation they work nicely, however they are considerably harder to put on, and the quality of workmanship and materials does not seem the same as the grip trex.

great

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

This is the first of four products used from among the dog boots on the market that actually stay on their feet, don't soak through, don't wear down when my older dog drags her back paws, and go on and off with relative ease. If I could change one tiny detail--I would add a brightly colored tab to the end of the velcro strip to assist in removal of boots.

Great !

Our golden has always had trouble in the winter with ice balls between his pads. With these boots, he can run through the snow all he wants and no issues. This winter has been extreme and we can still get him out for walks in the cold weather and through the deep snow and salted streets & sidewalks. Without the boots - no way! No problems keeping the boots on either.

Great product for active dogs

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I got these boots for my dogs after the first polar vortex that came through the midwest. Bentley, my shepherd is high energy and he loves the snow, the deeper the better. So I decided to try boots, that way my dogs can stay outside longer to play and not freeze their feet in the bitter cold. Their feet stay dry and warm no matter how deep the snow. And they stay on, I use them with socks. I highly recommend Summit Trex. Riley and Bentley are much happier in the cold, I will always look at Ruffwear when I need something.

well-made, but didn't work for our doggie

Would you recommend this product?.: No

This is a very well-made product, but they turned out to be too big for Snoopy's paws, which I measure according to this site's instructions. They therefore slid off easily, but I wonder whether a smaller size would have fit him. I also found them very stiff; not good for a small dog's more delicate paws (he weights about 25 lbs).

Well made but not designed for very small dogs

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Since this season has been particularly cold our dog needed something to protect her from the salt and freezing sidewalks. These boots are very well made but the front boots don't fit as well as the hind ones. It would appear that they should not be sold as a 'one size fits all' model but rather with a front pair and a rear pair to accommodate the different shapes of a dogs feet. That being said, they are certainly protecting Tsypa from the elements and we haven't come across any other brand in this quality.

The seam on 3 out of the 4 gaiters have already come undone. Henry's only worn the boots less than 10 times! I'm so disappointed because they fit well and the gaiters keep the snow out. But the seams are now getting stuck on the velcro and it's a big old mess.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

It will be hard to find enough positive adjectives to describe the Summit Trex. Extremely well made and Sam adjusted to walking in them easily (this is not his first pair of boots). In our locale there is a lot of chemical and salt used in winter...these boots have done a great job protecting his feet. The elastic cuff fits snugly enough to keep out the snow but remain comfortable for the dog. Did I mention how easy they are to clean? I've already recommended them to a number of friends.

Dog's Name: Onyx

Date of Review: 1/22/2014

We kick up our paws in: Chicago Area

My canine companion(s): Puggle

well built, durable, poorly fitted for smaller dogs

Would you recommend this product?.: No

These boots are exceptionally well-made from durable materials, BUT! they are not suitable for smaller dogs. When I measured my dog for sizing I was surprised to learn that I only had to measure the width of the dogs paw, not the length. Once we got our boots and tried them on, it turned out that the tread on the boot is almost twice as long as his paw, which means the velcro cinch is up to high to keep the boots properly placed since they slide down tot he top of his paws. Within seconds of getting him booted and cinched the boots slipped and it looked as if he were wearing flippers. It's far too difficult for him to walk around this way. In the end we resorted to only using the boots when it's an absolute necessity to protect his paws from the incredibly low temperatures we've been having. Even now we've had to add another piece of adhesive velcro to the boot, approximately halfway between the cinch and the toe-end of the boot. This keeps them on in the proper position, but the bunching of all of that extra fabric on the top of the boot, not to mention that extra tread, creates for a highly unnatural gait. This product is probably fantastic for larger dogs or dogs with longer paws, but if you have a smaller breed, or simply a dog with shorter paws you should keep looking. It's a shame considering how well-made these are, that someone didn't take into consideration that small and large dogs have different shapes.

Dog's Name: Turbo

Date of Review: 1/15/2014

We kick up our paws in: Morgan Hill, California

My canine companion(s): Yellow Lab

Love It

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I do daily trail runs with my Yellow Lab, Turbo, near our home in Morgan Hill, California. We've had regular problems with thorns getting in his paws and causing infections. The last thorn was very deep and he needed surgery. So I now have him wearing the Summit Trex in Orange. He always takes a few goofy steps at first but then goes right into running and he is very happy in them. He sprints through tall weeds and they stay on fine. Previously we had the Grip Trex version but dirt and gravel came in through the top. The Summit Trex is great with the cuff above the shoe because no dirt or gravel gets in. It's important to tighten the strap snuggly around the shoe. If the shoe is coming off it's because they are too loose. I've been using these daily for a couple weeks now and Turbo and I love them! I'll probably get a second set in the grey to expand is wardrobe. He get's lot's of smiles and attention from people when they see his shoes!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have the Grip Trex boots for my other dog Bane and we use them with the socks/liners. I ordered these boots for Raven hoping to skip a step. They are easy to get on, and they protect her feet, so they serve their purpose. But I like the Grip Trex better. They have a better design to pull the velcro tight without bunching up the shoe material, which looks uncomfortable to me on the Summit Trex. The little sock part at the top doesn't stay up to well, and as someone else said, I've already had some unraveling. They seem to be less breathable, which is good in the cold weather, and I do love the orange color. I recommend them, because they work, but I think Ruffwear could make some improvements.

This is very good quality product and not as bulky as similar products on the market. Unfortunately my dog is 6 pound Italian greyhound with very skinny legs. As much as I wanted this product to work, it didn't. I tried putting it on him and the smallest size Trex was just falling off. Too bad I've lost the receipt and didn't try to return it. I love Ruff Wear so it was a disappointment. I gave it 3 stars cause I think product is well made, just not for my pooch.

I wish the elastic part was better made like on the muttluks. I put them on my 12 year old golden to protect his feet from the salt on the streets. I thought the rubber soles would work better than the muttluks. Nothing works on ice. After a couple wears the seams are already not looking too good. The boots seemed to work but I suspect the elastic part will rip before long.

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I have been searching for good quality boots for my dogs and I finally found them. These boots are easy to put on and they stay on (if you get the correct size). Both of my dogs have bigger feet in the front then the back. RuffWear was able to split the sizes for me! Now I am able to go on our 2+ mile walk in the dead of winter in feet of snow without worrying about my dogs feet. My dog Jackson even went tracking in the snow with the boots on. I like how the boots are flexible and not stiff, so they give my dogs more flexibility. We have gone on walks with very cold temperatures and when I took the boots off at home, their feet were nice and warm.

Excellent

Do yourself a favor, and purchase the Bark’n Boot Liners™ as well. They make putting on the Summit Trex Boot so much easier, and the over all fit improves. Stryder is a one year old Australian Shepherd, and not going for a walk is not an option. Our cold temperatures combined with excess salt in the city was incredibly painful for him. He would actually stop walking and lay down. I have other Ruffwear products with outstanding quality and workmanship, and just new these boots would be well designed and durable. Pain free walks in the city, and runs out on the trails are what it's all about. Highly recommend!

satisfied

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Had the summit trex boots for about 4 day snow. We have 6-7 inches of snow so far. Decided to get these boots because my dog was having trouble walking outside because it has been so cold and where I live they put the salt deicing everywhere. So i wanted to get her something to protect her feet. I noticed right away the difference in her demeanor when she was outside with the boots on. We are very active and the boots have allowed us to be outside for longer walks which has been nice to get her exercise in the winter. She has due claws on her front paws and when I put her boots on I try and make sure they stay flat against her and haven't had any problems yet. The one thing that gets annoying is the velcro that holds the straps on gets snow packed in pretty easy, so when we are on walks i have to adjust them a few times. Today I pulled the top sock part of the boot down over the velcro and it worked a lot better. Haven't had trouble with them falling off yet and hopefully won't as other people have had in the reviews. Got them at the local REI store for ten dollars cheaper than online, which I found interesting. Also got one size bigger my dogs paw was 2 inches wide and got a 2.25 doesn't seem to matter to her or bother her. Been satisfied thus far with them and hope they continue to work for my dog.

good, at least for now

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

The boots just came in and as for now they fit well, but I took a smaller size than I shoud have, so keep that in mind. I'm not planning on using those boots in any other case than salt and chemicals on the street, plus when my dog injuries her paw (as she did recently). I don't recommand using those in forests etc, I think boots are best for city-streets walks and paw injuries.

Awesome!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Very easy to put on & stayed on for hours out in deep snow. Also tried polar trex- they came off even when I had them as tight as I could put them on. Returned them, to buy more of the summit trex!

Not Bad

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Stays on her paws much better and are much easier to put on than the Polar Trex, which usually went flying within 5 minutes. So far we've had multiple succesful off leash winter weather outings and only once did a boot come off. The sock portion doesn't offer much protection and usually just slides down, additionally one tore slightly on the second day. Not perfect, but they keep her bare paws off the freezing ground so she's not too busy trying to hold alternating feet in the air versus playing.

My canine companion(s): Border Collie

Not sure yet

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

She loves to run resulting in wearing down her pads no matter what the surface other than grass or sand. Our kennel is particularly problematic. We were given some inexpensive boots that didn't work at all. Her first kennel stay with these proved successful although they sewed a large snap to on the cuff and velcro to keep them on. Prior to at home I was unsuccessful in keeping them on for any extended period. She does well wearing them. End result is for the first time she returned home not limping so I'm extremely happy. Let's face it, keeping booties on dogs has to be a challenge. If my baby can play without injury, I'm pleased. We have only had her in them for one stint at the kennel so I can't comment on wear-n-tear as others have.

Eh.

Would you recommend this product?.: No

They seemed like a great product at first, but the stitching has started to fail where the sole and fabric meet. Also, my dogs back pad has already torn through the sock part in just one run. I'm not too terrible impressed, but they have prevented his pads from getting worn down. I just wish they were more durable for the price. I should've bought me some shoes.

Very Happy!!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I purchased these for my 8 year old Boxer who was recently diagnosed with "the worst case of arthritis" my vet has ever seen. He was basically dragging his leg and started slipping on my hardwood floors, even when standing still. I ordered the Summit Trex and am pleased to say they work terrific. In the beginning, they were slipping slightly, but I just adjusted the velcro to be more snug and they stayed in place. I have to admit, the "dance" he did when getting used to them was pretty funny to watch, but now he is used to them. I only have him wear them indoors, as my yard is all grass and he is fine out there. I would highly recommend these!

Fantastic!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My 15 year old Golden can still muster the energy for a nightly walk, but due to arthritis she drags one leg slightly and in the course of one lap around the block, would grind down her claws on that foot. I tried several other brands of K9 footwear that she would routinely "throw" several times a walk, or simply have trouble walking in.. I tried these and have never looked back. She has never thrown one, ever, and has actually worn one set out, which I was delighted to replace. Thanks to Rough Wear my "Golden Geezer" get her walk every night.

Used the product once. The boots didn't fit well and kept tripping my dog. Had to stop our walk to readjust several times and then just took the boots off because I felt bad for her and didn't want her to get hurt.

Love it!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I purchased the Summit Trex boots for my Pit-mix and there great! The only problem my dog had was the inside of boots were very rough. Maddy has very soft paw pads. So, I bought the liners and my problem was solved. Thanks to the amazing help of Ruffwear's customer service! Thanks! You guys are great and so are your product!

Meh

Would you recommend this product?.: No

We've had these boots for a couple weeks and they are already falling apart. I had really high hopes for this product since they appeared much more durable then what you can find in pet stores. Aside from the shady quality, the straps fit right over my dog's dew claws and press them into her feet causing them to bleed. Needless to say I need to keep looking for a durable dog boot to protect her feet

Good

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I think they make a good product. However, Summit Tex boot don't stay on paws that well. Merle has already lost 2 shoes in a week. We walk 3-5 miles of river a day looking for fish. The paw measure said he was a large but I went with a medium to get a tighter fit. Overall good product and should work with normal use of a dog.

Great design

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I decided to try these boots for Riley because I really liked how they have the gaiter. We also have the Grip trex and the biggest problem was that they would fill with gravel or road salt, etc. we took a trial hike that had both gravel and dirt trail and Riley had no problem. They stay on better than the Grip Trex also (which work best with the liners). I may add the liners in the winter for extra protection from the cold but I am looking forward to these protecting my Service Dog's feet both on hot pavement and in the midst of winter ice and road salt. She adapted very quickly to these boots and acted like they were comfortable on her. One note is that the stitching around the elastic on one of the gaiters started unraveling after our test hike. I trimmed it and am hoping it was just excess. Other than that, the craftsmanship is great. Riley and I very much appreciate the gear Ruffwear makes so she can help me enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors!
