Gift: No

Sizing: Feels true to size

Pros: Good Quality, Easy to Put On

Cons: Adjust often

Best Uses: Harsh Weather, Outdoors, Travel

Describe Yourself: Single Dog Owner

I got these for my dog for the hot summers in Phoenix. The first time she wore them, she chased a duck into a pond and lost one of them (think it got stuck in the mud). Since we got her replacements, she hasn't lost a single one. They have saved her paws when going on long rocky hikes and on the hot pavement in town. People think she looks ridiculous, but we don't have to deal with ripped or burned pads ever! They do need to be adjusted often — every water break I need to tighten them. We use the liners and I can't really tell if they help the fit, but I think they do reduce rubbing on her ankles.

Hey Dixie, those boots are great aren't they? We reviewed them for our Tripawds Gear Blog recently, and found that how the boots work really depend on the dog's particular feet. We've tried them on some dogs and they dont' fit right, or the dogs hate them. But on dogs like Wyatt Ray they fit great!

We do think the liners make a huge difference. When we tried them without, they slipped around more.

Great product from Ruff Wear, as always. Glad you like 'em!
