Dog Boot Measuring Instructions
Measure your dog’s front paw to ensure a comfortable fitting boot.
Please download our Dog Boot Size Chart Guide Printout here, and print it out to help you measure your dog's paw width and choose the size that works best for your dog.
If you don't have a printer, you can follow the instructions below:
- Place the paw on a piece of paper and press down on the top, mimicking how the paw spreads when the dog’s walking.
- Mark the left and the right side on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the boot sizes. The width of the paw should be smaller than the boot size, for all boots except Traction (they can stretch a little). For example, if the foot width is 1 1/2 inches, order an X-Small at 1 3/4 inches.
* Success varies depending on the surface on which your dog is walking or running. Boots will show wear; the material used, while durable, are still fabrics. The more abrasive the surface, the faster the boot will show wear. Wear includes tears, holes, etc. and we can not accept returns in this condition. We've found that using "Shoe Goo" to repair holes or tears works well and gives your boots a longer life.
Unfortunately, there isn't a perfect solution for dogs that drag their feet. - we haven't found a material that will stand up to dragging and still be comfortable for the dog. Some customers use the Rugged boots and then apply Shoe Goo as wear appears.
Exposure to chlorine will cause the dog boots to deteriorate quickly and are not suitable for use in chlorinated situations.
