We bought these for my dog for Christmas and we are still trying to acclimate him to wearing them. He is tiny and we got the smallest size. The problem is we cannot seem to get them to stay on his feet. We have only tried two so far, and only in the house, but no matter what we do they fall off. According to the size chart, he should fit in the smallest size. I guess he is just too small. We thought the foam padding inside would help them stay in place. No matter how tight we make them they slip off! We are going to keep trying but they may have to be returned. If his paws were bigger they would probably be great. They seem to be well made. The foam around the ankles is nice and the double Velcro straps are nice too-they go in opposite directions which should help secure them. I wish they fit my dog!
They are well made but unfortunately they won't stay on once she walked in snow. The other problem with these is that the straps are black and very hard to see when it's dark out and you are trying to put back on in the cold. I would suggest two things to improve this: Make them longer to go up the leg a bit and make the straps a different color.
I bought these for my pup to wear around the city when the streets are salted. Unfortunately, the boots didn't fit her very well. I bought the correct size for her paw pads, but was unable to tighten them enough to keep them from falling off. The material is quite stiff and the inner foam, which is designed to protect her ankle/lower leg left too much space, allowing the boots to fall off. I've requested a return from Chewy in December, but have not yet received a response.
I have a pitbull with large paws so ordered a larger size according to the chart. The boot appears to be the right size for him, but unfortunately I can't get his paw into the boot because the "wrist" part at the top close to the velcro is too narrow and stiff.
We just moved to Upstate New York and the amount of snowmelt stuff on the ground was cracking my German Shepherds paw pads. I was pretty skeptical that he would let me get them on him but with some peanut butter and bananas he wore them like a champ! We practiced in the house and then outside and he did great. The boots have great padding on them and fit snug but big enough for range of motion. He honestly seems to like them and even let me adjust one on the walk without PB haha! Highly recommend these
These seem well made but had odd squares of a foamy rubber than made them very stiff and difficult to place on the dogs feet. The boots seem large but would be even harder to put on, if they were smaller. She manages to walk out of them when she will walk at all with the boots on.
I am rating this product four stars for their durability and overall construction. However my Chihuahua is 9 pounds and even the XS did not tighten around his thin legs and tiny feet well enough for them to stay on.
Looks like good quality that would endure winter weather. The material is too rigid for my small (<20lb) dog though. She could not bend the booties to allow her paws to lay flat on the ground.
These boots are everything I was looking for. However, they are so stiff my retriever can't bend his ankle, and he is not a ballerina so he can't walk on his toes. I tried everything I knew along with Chewy customer service and google. Nothing that was suggested worked. I can't use them.
I have a mini Aussie (Simon) and our winters get brutal cold. We see -40 below zero sometimes for weeks. The last pair of these I purchased 6 years ago!!! He wears them all winter long. I had to repair the cracks in the rubber bottom but after that much wear it's amazing that they've lasted so long. Because of the second strap, he has never had one fall off! He isn't a fan of any other boots so apparently these are the most comfortable. Simon highly recommends these boots!
