How do u know what size to get
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2019
The size depends on your pet's weight. For a full size chart, click on the "size" tab in the description.

When you are taking them off to re apply new ones, do you have to soak them to loosen the adhesive? Also if our dog bites at them at first because they're irritating to her is the adhesive so strong that she could rip her real nail out?
Answer by ChewyJan 17, 2018
You will have to clip the end off and up each side with cuticle scissors, The cap would be a loss. The adhesive is very strong.

Do these help the dogs stop scratching the carpet floor and making holes.?

My dog popped the sheath off her nail. Is trying his safe to put over the bare nail to prevent licking?
Answer by ChewyDec 03, 2019
We do not recommend using nail caps to open wounds as it can deter proper healing.

Bad Glue weird sizing

Love the idea of these but the glue has gone bad. Already set and hard. Also the sizing seems way off. Order two to three sizes larger.

Great product concept

This is a great product and solution for your little velociraptor. I have a Chihuahua that sharpens her nails nightly after I take the points off. My arms have been scratched up to oblivion. Cutting her nails and filing her nails nightly doesn’t work because she just spends eight hours sharpening them to cat like needle sharp claws. So, I decided to try these. Chewy was wonderful replacing the glue that came with the nail caps because arrived dried out. These nails were easy to put on and look absolutely adorable. My recommendations for having them adhere strongly is to follow the directions on the package and wipe your dogs nails with some rubbing alcohol to remove the oil before it hearing the nail tip. Make sure not to touch the nails that you’ve just cleaned with your fingers, because you will transfer oil. Also, if your dog is a chewer like mine put a little bit of apple bitters on the paws. Works like a charm!

Nail glue useless

Was very hopeful that this product would solve the problem of unintentional injury that my puppy causes on my paper thin skin when he even lightly puts a paw on my arm or leg - even after trimming and sanding his nails from a groomer. Alas, both glue sticks in this package were solid as rocks. Now I need to make a trip to the store and another purchase. Will have to wait and see if the caps themselves will be tolerated by my shitzu.

Do not use!

They broke my dogs nails. She chewed them off of her nails. They cracked her nail in some places. In others places or nails they chipeds and broke off.

Terrible product!

Had my vet tech apply these caps on my elderly dog, so I know they were applied correctly. The dog sounded like she had tap dance shoes on, clicking and clacking on the wood floors. Then she quickly developing a limp. Back to the vet tech to have the caps removed. The limp is now easing, but I'm out the cost of two vet visits. Don't put your dog through the same trauma!

I put the caps on in May for a camp trip because my rescuer nails are pretty long and he needed to wear boots. I bought they to help stop his nails from pushing it’s his feet. They work but then irritated his feet where the cap ended. I have been trying since the end of may to remove the caps. They glue is so strong that I had to use acetone to remove some but some still wouldn’t budge. Today I finally spent about 40 minutes grinding off the last 3. I would highly NOT recommend this product.

Excellent product but don’t go by weight

I recently got some soft claws for my golden retriever. She’s 2 and still with the”paw” thing and her nails dig into skin and it tears. So. Been using them for the cat- had No idea they also came for dogs! However, I ordered them based on weight, which is 90lbs, which puts it at XXXL. Oh my, Way too large. Call customer service, you guys rock, and they placed an order for an XL. They arrived. Perfect fit! Thanks Chewy for your excellent customer service.

mission accomplished

My 80-85 lb staffy is a 14 yr ol codger with bad hips and painful arthritis who slid all over my natural hardwood floor. I had the groomer apply these XXX-Large after she clipped his nails. Note: they only work while standing and walking, they do not work when trying to rise from laying down and vise versa. He's figured that out and only lays down on area rugs or his bed so he can lay and rise w/o as much trouble.
