Fantastic boots, once worn in very flexible, quite durable on our very rocky mountain top. Great cuffs keep out smaller pebbles and dirt. She unfortunately knows how to operate velcro straps and removes them at will occasionally but usually only on really hot days when she's just too hot keep wearing them.
Great at the farm where there is occasional danger of walking through treated land (herbicides and pesticides) and getting chemicals on her paws.
Would be good if we could get more colours... the grey and the orange are really hard to find when she decides to leave them somewhere...

I am glad I followed the detailed instructions on how to ensure the boots fit my beloved Wollondilly, as we managed a good outcome. Dilly was mightily embarrassed when I first put a boot on her, but by the second day and the second boot she was sitting and lifting a paw to help me slip them on. The socks are a great help, but they creep down on one foot - not both, just the one. As they lose their newness, this is improving too. She wears the set of four depending on the weather, but at least the front two always.
Dlly needs the boots because she has severe contact allergies. Now she can walk on long or weedy grass, hot pavements, and when it is wet or extremely hot. She loves her walks, so her quality of life and her health is improved.
The Waggle service experience can't be faulted.

We live on a very steep, rocky farm and the commercial areas frequently have fertilisers, pesticides/herbicides sprayed on the ground. We naturally didn't want our German Shephard X's paws stepping in any chemicals if she wanders through those areas. These boots have provided great protection for her paws on the hot rocky roads and from the chemicals that might be on the ground.
Waggle were very helpful, they arranged for two different sizes for her back and front feet, they even let me have two different colours so I could tell the sets apart at a glance =)
Agree with Jo H, do one paw at a time - boot liner (makes it easier to get paws in) and then boot. If you put all the socks on first they have have them all off by the time you're ready to put the first boot on.
This is the second set of Ruffwear boots (we also had the Grip Tex for our other dog) and they have both been of very durable, high quality construction. The Summit's have been better at keeping small rocks and pebbles out because of the cuff.

We originally bought these for our foster dog Walker who had been hot by a car and is currently in rehabilitation with us and needs shoes to help him grip on our tiled floors. However I measured his foot wrong so our furbaby Benji got the new kicks and Walker got Benji's
These shoes are great and have a lot of flexibility in the sole of the shoe and the sock part of the shoe makes it even easier to put on, plus they look super adorable. Other than that they have definitely helped with Benji's posture and have loosened the muscles in his back that were caused from slightly slipping on the tiles every time he took a step.
These boots are a small price to pay for what could of been hundreds if not thousands in vet bills and rehabilitation in the future.

I was amazed by my little maltese cross' reaction. It only took her a few minutes to adjust, then she was running normal. I was skeptical thinking that it would only really work well for bigger dogs. In WA we have horrible weeds and she previously had 3 well into her paws and they could have sent her lame and cost big money in operations.

We have only tried these out once so far, but my Lab didn't seem to mind wearing them. She was stepping quite high with her back legs as she was getting used to the feel of them, but after no time was running around the yard with them on. Tried these with the Ruffler Boot Liners, I think the boots would be tricky to get on without them. Note - do one paw at a a time, liner then boot, otherwise pooch pulls the socks off by the time I get back to the first paw again. Recommend talking to Waggle prior to ordering to confirm sizing, they were very helpful and arranged two different sizes for front & back.

They are very well made and fairly easy to put on. However, they were too big for my dog and fell off no matter how tight they were.

What a great product ! These shoes have allowed my Black Lab to run with the best of them. Easy to put on, clean and look great. He is the envy of the dogs at the oval. Thanks

Very good shoes my dog has allergies to grasses so to avoid her always chewing her feet as they are so itchy these shoes help keep her bare feet off grasses

My border collie x kelpie, Sparkie, needed boots to protect her feet from hot pavement during the summer. I purchased the Summit Trex because the Grip Trex didn't come in her size. These boots work well enough but I find them very difficult to get on as the opening is too small.
