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.
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. Dog booties and dog socks can also keep your dog from scratching themselves incessantly. 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. We have a variety of paw wear options for dogs including Grip Trex rugged trail dog boots by Ruffwear, Muttluks snow boots for dogs, PawZ multi-use disposable dog booties, Dog Mocs leather dog boot moccasins for durable natural-feeling protection, Ultra Paws Cooling Dog Boots, and rubber-dipped Sport PAWks socks for flexible paw protection and indoor-outdoor use. We also offer 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!
