Although dogs do have those built-in paw pads, they weren’t designed to deal with modern paw perils such as hot asphalt, tar, ice melt, and broken glass. Even in suburbia, there are hazards for your pet’s paws - hot sidewalks, lawn chemicals, lawn edging, and even hot synthetic lawns! That's why dog boots and shoes play a crucial role in protecting your pooch's paws from the elements when they explore the great outdoors with their humans.
Dog shoes and boots can also help lessen the spread of certain diseases in places like dog parks, dog shows, etc. For dogs with grass and pollen allergies, dog boots, dog sandals, and shoes can be a lifesaver against itchy, cracked paws. Disposable dog booties protect against the elements while also keeping your dog from tracking in dirt and debris. For dogs with paw injuries, our Nooby’s and Ultra Paws dog wound boots and socks help your dog to heal faster by preventing excess licking, chewing, and offer a barrier against dirt and germs. Not only can dog boots protect your dog’s paws, they can also protect your home. No longer does your furry pal need to track in dirt and mud all over your freshly-mopped floors and ruin your carpet.
You'll find a variety of outdoor paw protection options for any climate. Muttluks Fleece Lined Boots offer breathable waterproof fabric suited for hot and cold weather conditions. Ruffwear Grip Trex dog boots deliver high traction on varied terrain with added protection from extreme environments when venturing out in the backcountry. PAWks dog socks are not only stylish and cozy, but their anti-slip traction soles will keep your pup from slipping and sliding. You'll also find many indoor dog footwear options for senior dogs and dogs with hip dysplasia and other mobility issues. Our GF Pet and Doggie Design anti-slip dog socks and booties provide dogs with better footing on slippery surfaces like wood floors, tile, and stone. Dog slippers and anti-slip dog socks can also protect disabled pet’s paws from friction burns.
Once you try our dog boots, booties, dog socks, and slippers, you’ll wonder how you and your pet ever got along without them! And let's not forget that dog shoes are just plain fashionable!
