These shoes are amazing. They fit perfectly and actually stay on my dogs feet very well (unlike other brands) even as she is pouncing through long grass and puddles. I love the secure top part to keep out little stones and dirt that may otherwise get into the shoe and cause discomfort.

Have given these boots a solid workout over the last week or 2 because my dog blew its pads and i am more than happy with them. The only problem i found with them was the front dew claw rubs against the ankle and bleeds a little doesnt affect the dog though and that is with a pretty serious work load probably wouldnt be a bother on a normal walk.

I use these for my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel as she drags her feet and has worn her toenails down to the quick.
At first, she looked liked a kid wearing her parents shoes, watching her walk was funny, but now she doesn't pay them any attention, even runs in them, so she must be comfortable. I do have to make sure the velcro is firm so they don't slide off though.
I think the liners would be useful especially for the front paws, as you need to be careful when inserting the paw that you don't damage the dew claw.
I was impressed with the quality of the boot itself. My dog has tiny paws so they look like babies boots, but really intricate ones. I don't think you can fault the quality of the product.

Donna is very happy with her boots. They fit her well and she thinks that the grey ones suit her better than the red!! Thanks again. All the best, Meriel

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.
