dog shoe recommendations
has anybody got shoes for their dog that they could recommend or avoid? We have some ruffwear grip trex but the pooch isn’t to happy in them. They seem pretty stiff and tend to fall off unless they are really tight around the ankle. We had some cheap neoprene booties that worked but they wear through really quickly.
The ruffwear skyliner looked like it might be better, and also the neo pawz looked interesting – any one tried either?Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
I looked into getting some for my lurcher when I got a contract which involved spending a good few months walking in remote Scottish mountains.
Most lurchers have very little protection around their ankles and paws compared to say, a lab. Hardly any flesh and a small amount of fine hair.
I didn’t bother in the end and despite the heather bashing and spiky rocks, the dog had very few cuts and abrasions.
Why are you thinking about it btw? Might stop some of the urine extracting…Posted 4 years agoGolfChickMember
Ive also looked into getting Ziva some, in fact I challenge any dog to mtb and therefore run as far and as long as she does the amount she does and not get cut pads from time to time. She has one atm in fact so is back to cr@p walks while they heal. So far I’ve resisted getting her some and do exactly what I would do if I was injured and just rest in the mean time. You might wanna check around sled dog forums as a lot of huskies etc have to wear them from running on the harsh snow and frost environments.Posted 4 years agoKarinofnineMember
I’m looking for some for Dot. Teddy’s ok, but she ALWAYS scuffs her stoppers and cuts her pads. Her little paws are like the skin on my hands, soft and pink. I thought 10 months of walking her on roads/tracks etc would harden her feet but no.
Maybe try these guys?

I got ours some ruffwear boots as trail centre surfaces make her pads blister and bleed. They’re really well made but her feet are so thin that she throws them off all the time. I’ve been looking at their socks which look cool but I’m a little worried that she’ll overheat as their pads are one of the few places that sweat.Posted 4 years ago
