Dog Boots prevent slipping

Waggle Boots FAQs


As dogs age they often encounter difficulties gaining purchase on smooth floors such as tile or concrete or polished wooden floorboards. This is not only inconvenient but it's also dangerous. Older dogs can take a fall and damage their hips and knees just like older people. Arthitis and hip displaysia can play a role here.

Walking is so vital to our dogs.

Most importantly, our dogs just LOVE it! Dogs thrive on walking and being unable to get up and walk independently takes away some very important joys of dog life. Without the ritual of going for walks our dogs would be missing that great time of pack bonding with us.

Secondly it is very important that dogs are able to get outside to do their business. It can be very a challenging situation for humans when their dogs can't get outisde independently.

Grip Trex Boots can put your dog back on his feet!

Ruffwear Grip Trex Boots are designed specifically for traction. For the sole Ruffwear partnered with Vibram, the world's top developer of soles for human active sports shoes. The result is the unique Grip Trex design with omnidirectional treads and traction zones customised to the demanding needs of dogs.

The change in your dog will be immediate. Grip Trex Boots have an amazing impact on dogs who slip.

They are made with a sturdy mesh upper for excellent breathability. This makes it possible for dogs to wear for longer stints of time. They are also the most sturdy construction of Ruffwear dog boots and they are built to last.

But will my dog wear these boots?

My answer is yes. They really do. And many times dogs will notice that the boots make a BIG difference to their mobility and they will lift their paws to have the boots put on before going out.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This is Gemma - our beautiful Old English Sheepdog who is 11 years old. She suffers from arthritis in her hips and it was impossible for her to get up once she had laid on the lino. But with her Ruffwear Dog Boots Grip Trex, she can not only get up, but jump up! We also bought the boot liners which allow the boot to slip on very easily. She loves them! After her walk (where she goes bootless), she actually waits at the door till the boots are put on. I can't recommend them highly enough - it's made her life so much happier." - Kathryn McIntyre

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "We couldn't be happier with the Ruffwar Dog Boots. We bought them for our beautifully natured Lilly to stop her legs slipping on our timber floors following a total hip replacement. She's also blind so all the more chance of tripping and slipping! The boots fit perfectly based on the size chart and haven't looked like coming off once. We assume they are comfortable as Lilly hasn't tried to pull them off and they are certainly effective. They look good too! Very happy puppy dog. The delivery from Waggle was fast and efficient.." - Simon

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Great prompt delivery. Really helpful sizing guide got it just right. Our dog has a spinal condition and his strength in the back legs is poor, he often slips on our timber and concrete floors. We use the back paw boots and he feels much more confident without slipping." - Anne B

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I bought the boots for a 12 year old Maremma Rescue dog. He had a great deal of difficulty standing on his back legs, also due to ligament and tendon damage on his front legs. Getting up was extremely difficult as his feet would slip from under him,and he would not allow us to hold his front legs at all . The Grip Trex boots have made such a change to his quality of life. They are so quick and easy to put on, no more slipping on the floors. Finally he is able to come inside and walk confidently on our polished floorboards. He even gets a little run up when he has his boots on.I can highly recommend these boots for elderly dogs." - Elaine Yates

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "We bought a pair of these boots for our old Golden, who is losing strength and function in his rear end. He drags his feet, causing his nails to bleed, and also has troubling getting up on our tiled floor. We also bought the boot liners. The boots fit well, and the liners certainly make it easy to put the boots on and off. The boots are well made and worth paying for. We had previously bought cheaper ones, but they didn't last." - Bailey's mum

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Our 16yo Blue Heeler senior pup has trouble getting up and down and when she was standing, eating or drinking, her back legs would seem to slip from under her. We have noticed a great improvement with her being able to stand for longer and with less assistance from us when wearing these boots, which honestly is nearly all the time. Not only have they really helped her maintain grip when standing, but also when walking, alas no running any more. Easy to put on and remove, she doesn't mind them a bit. The only bad thing is we only bought boots for her back feet, we should have got all four." - C Lowman
