Rugged, insulated, weatherproof dog boots  

Polar Trex dog insulated boots provide warmth, traction and protection to your mate's paws in extreme cold and inclement weather.

The Vibram¬ģ Icetrek‚ĄĘ outsole gives your dog¬†traction on frozen surfaces and¬†acts as a barrier against cold and snow-melt chemicals.¬†The¬†insulated soft shell upper¬†provides breathable, weatherproof warmth. A hook-and-loop closure cinches¬†the boot at the narrowest part of¬†your dog‚Äôs leg for a nice secure fit. You can zip the stretch gaiter over the closure to protect the hook-and-loop from snow build-up.

Adjust fit and check tension of boot straps 15 minutes into your activity and throughout the adventure as needed.

What we've learned from 15 Years of selling Dog Boots

Ruffwear Dog Boots go the extra mile. Often customers tell me often that they tried other dog boots first and the boots fell off, wore out or just plain didn't do the job. Ruffwear are not the cheapest boot on the market... BUT... with Ruffwear you get a super comfy, super durable, well fitting and breathable boot. That's not done on the cheap.

We've been been kitting Aussie dogs out in Ruffwear Dog Boots since 2006

That's a HECK of a LOT of DOG BOOTS. You might be quite surprised at the demand for dog boots here in Australia. I know you are on this page for a reason but have you ever seen dogs out and about wearing boots? Maybe not. You might think you are the only one needing them. Not. The. Case!

Individual dogs require boots for many different reasons.

  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Provide traction for dogs who slip or can't stand
  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Help for dogs with arthritis
  • ¬†‚ö° Protect paws on hot pavement and rough terrain
  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Protect paws from grass seeds and bindis
  • ¬†‚ö° Protect wounds while healing
  • ¬†‚ö° Protect cracked paws while healing
  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Prevent paw contact with allergens
  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Protect paws that get dragged
  • ¬†‚ö°¬†Protect service and working dogs' paws
Waggle Boots FAQs

ūü•∂¬†Polar Trex Boots are made for the cold¬† ūü•∂

These are not the right dog boots for wear in warm¬†Aussie climates. They are insulated and meant for the¬†cold. Sometimes¬†people have felt drawn to purchase¬†Polar Trex Boots¬†thinking that a longer boot would stay on better than a shorter one.¬†The Grip Trex Dog Boots¬†and Summit Trex Dog Boots¬†stay on just as well and won't overheat your mate's paws¬†ūüĒ• in the heat. Get the¬†appropriate boot for your environment. : )¬†

ūüôĆ HALLELUJAH these boots STAY ON!

Polar Trex Boots have a closure system combining hook-and-loop with hardware, cinching around the narrowest part of the dog’s leg to provide a secure fit. And the answer to the million dollar question is... Yes! Provided you have the right size these boots stay on.


2ÔłŹ‚É£¬†Polar Trex Boots are sold in pairs of 2 boots

Frequently back paws are smaller than front paws. To ensure a proper fit it's important to measure one of your dog's front paws and one back paw. I sell the boots in pairs of 2 to draw attention to this paw size difference and allow for the best fit for all four paws. Not all dogs have front paws which are larger but it's vital to check this before ordering 4 boots of the same size. Never assume paw size is based on your dog's overall size...make sure to measure using the easy directions below.

ūüéĮ Let's get this sizing spot on

Ruffwear bases their size chart solely on the paw width measurement. I have been selling these boots long enough to know that sometimes a couple of other measurements can really come in handy. I am more than happy to exchange your boots (or refund) provided the boots are still in new condition. But to make things easiest for you it's best we nail the size the first time.

  1. Stand your dog on a sheet of paper. With your dog bearing weight on a all four paws trace to either side of one front paw and then one back paw.
  2. Do each paw 3 times. Dogs are wiggly. That's a wonderful thing about them... except when measuring paws!
  3. Measure (in mm) the distance between the traced lines for the front paws and then for the back paws. Get your final width measurement for a front paw and a back paw by taking an average of your front paw widths and your back paw widths.
  4. Use the Paw Width (mm) row on the chart below to determine what size boots the front & back paws require. Do NOT add any extra padding for - anything including liners. That is ALL figured in.

9 times out of 10 the paw width alone gets the job done.

But as I want to get you the RIGHT size the FIRST time I'm going to give you a couple other measurements that you may find useful if your dog has particularly chunky paws or particularly long paws.

  • For dogs with chunky paws:
    If your dog has quite chunky paws (appear almost square in shape ... Labs, Great Danes, etc) I recommend doing a paw circumference measurement. Just wrap a measuring tape around your dog's paw from top to bottom to top (see picture above) and determine the size boot mouth your dog's paw will require to enter. Do the measurement a few times and average. Wiggle factor, remember? Check your final measurement with the Max Paw Circumference that I've provided. If you run into a challenge just ring 0425 365 643 and I'll help you figure it out.
  • For dogs with long paws:
    If your dog has particularly long paws (Whippets, Greyhounds and other long pawed beauties) I recommend doing a paw length measurement. For this one measure the length of your dog's paw. Remember to measure more than once and average. Check it with the Boot Length Measurement that I've provided. If you have questions just give me a ring on 0425 365 643 and I'll be happy to help.

ūüĆ≥ Try¬†your boots inside before going outside

I'm Zoe and this is Chewie. Your dog's comfort and your happiness are our top priorities. We are more than happy to refund or exchange any items as long as they have not been worn outside and are still in NEW condition. No questions asked!

For best results pop the boots onto your dog and launch right into an activity your dog loves. Reward your dog for good work done and do not be surprised to see your dog walking as if moonwalking. Most dogs adjust to boots in no time. Many become very aware at how helpful the boots can be for their issues and will be very happy to put them on. You might want to have your video camera out for the initial trials as it can be quite entertaining to watch.

ūü߶ Do You Need To Get The Boot Liners Too?

Ruffwear Boot Liners add a lot of value at little expense. Putting the liners on your dog is a snap. And once you have the liners on slipping the paws into the boots is much easier. All the digits of the paw are confined nicely and it's smooth sailing. They also provide comfort for your dog by wicking away moisture from the paw. Your dog sweats from the paw. It's one of the only places a dog perspires. The liners will reduce friction on the paws. You know the feeling when your sockless foot rubs on the inside of a shoe. Better to avoid.

ūüęß Toss¬†them in the washing machine to clean¬†ūüęß

Both the liners & boots can be thrown into the washing machine and will dry pretty quickly so you should be fine with one set of each.
