Ruffwear has revolutionized canine paw wear. Ruffwear's Grip Trex Dog Boots feature two major advancements in dog boots: an upper inspired by human shoes and a high performance Vibram sole. At Waggle we've been carrying Ruff Wear Grip Trex Dog Boots for 10 years now and they have been one of our most popular products due to their innovative design and durability.

Worn by Australian Police Dogs, Australian Military Canine Units, all the Guide Dogs in NSW and WA, and working dogs across Australia and the rest of the world, these dog boots are practical no nonsense footwear for active dogs and working dogs alike. They protect the dog's paw pads from broken glass, hot bitumen and concrete footpaths as well as thorns and bindi eyes. They are also very effective in protecting against contact allergies to grass etc..

For all service dogs that are taken into shopping centres and department stores these shoes provide reliable grip on the smooth tiled floors and protect their wearers toes when alighting on to or off escalators and so are a great idea for dogs living on tiles and floor boards whose paws are inclined to slip causing discomfort and possibly injury to tendons in knees and elbows.

Built on an anatomical mold, just like human shoes, the boot's upper maintains a consistent size, shape, and fit. The revolutionary upper design and construction ensures the boots are easy to put on, easy to secure, provide continued comfort, and most importantly, the boots stay on paws-from the first mile to the last. Closure system combines hook-and-loop with hardware, cinching around the narrowest part of the dog’s leg to provide a secure fit.

For the revolutionary sole, Ruffwear partnered with Vibram the world's leading developer of soles for active pursuits. The partnership produced the unique Grip Trex design with omnidirectional treads and traction zones customized to the demanding needs of active dogs.

The sole generates unequaled grip, traction, durability, and performance. Together, these two advancements produce a completely revolutionary dog boot from top to bottom. Put Ruff Wear's Bark'n Boots Grip Trex on your dog and unleash the canine athlete inside, then do your best to keep up with your four-legged friend and enjoy the fun.

Keep in mind that if the boots are worn for long stretches of time it is a good idea to take the boots off and let your dog's paws have a little breather when possible - especially in summer.

Features

  • Protects dogs’ paws from extreme environments
  • Non-marking Vibram® outsole with a new, multi-directional, flexible lug design gives your dog tactile control on varied terrain
  • Tightly woven air mesh keeps dirt and debris out while providing superior ventilation
  • Reliable, intuitive YKK® hook-and-loop cinch closure system
  • Gusset design provides wide opening for easy on and off
  • 3M™ reflective details provide low-light visibility from multiple angles

Getting the right fit is really essential.

To ensure a proper fit (and to ensure the boots stay on) it is important to measure both your dog's front paws and back paws. Frequently back paws are smaller than front paws. We sell the boots in pairs of 2 to draw attention to this paw size difference. Not all dogs have front paws which are larger but it's really important 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 our easy directions below.

Measuring Paw Width

  1. Have your dog stand on a firm surface (wood, linoleum, or concrete).
  2. Place a piece of blank paper under a front paw.
  3. Mark the paper at the paw's widest point on the left and right edges of the paw (see graphic on size chart).
  4. Be sure to measure a front paw and a back paw as they may be different sizes.
  5. Use a ruler to measure the distance from the left mark to the right mark on the paper.
  6. Use the Size Chart to determine the proper sizing for both the front & back paws

Trying Out Your New Boots

When you receive your new boots please be sure to give them a good solid go on your dog INSIDE before going outside. We want your dog to be comfy! We are more than happy to refund or exchange items as long as they have not been worn outside and are still in NEW condition. No questions asked!

For best results when trying out new boots pop the boots onto your dog and launch right into an activity your dog loves. It's a good idea to involve toys or treats. Reward your dog for good work done and do not be surprised to see your dog walking as if he or she is on the moon. Most dogs adjust to boots in no time. You might want to have your video camera out for the initial trials as it can be quite entertaining to watch.

Will The Boots Fall Off?

If you get the right measurements your new boots should stay without any issues. The boots are most likely to fall off when your dog is first wearing them as they tend to walk a bit wildly. For this reason and for sizing purposes it's important to give them a go inside the house first. Whe you do try them out outside the first couple of times you might want to keep an eye on your canine adventurer. As your dog adjusts to the boots they are much less likely to pop off.

Do You Need To Get The Boot Liners Too

This is a question I am asked often. My view is that the 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. Also the liners will reduce friction on the paws. You know the feeling when your sockless foot rubs on the inside of a shoe. Best to avoid I reckon. 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.


"I have been using the same pair of rough wear boots on my service dog Kane since 2008. They are invaluable in protecting the pads of his paws from hot bitumen and concrete when crossing roads or walking down footpaths. They provide excellent protection from broken glass, thorns and bindi eyes and other sharp objects. In shopping malls and department stores the soles provide great grip and they protect Kane's toes when we get on and off escalators. Most importantly Kane loves them. As soon as I put the boots on Kane he does a three point turn dance on the spot and looks expectantly at the door. He loves them and loves to race around madly in off leash parks with them on. Amazingly they stay on. Wearing his boots Kane is a different dog. I recommend these boots for service dogs or pets equally and find the socks help to keep the shoes clean on the inside."

Our Chocolate Lab has cat paws and hurt a nail as we live on a farm with lots of tree and rocks. It was a very hard environment on his paws before the dog boots, However one small problem is that they caused a wear patch on a toe, to fix this problem we purchased baby socks as inners for the boots and now the boots are great. looking at purchasing a second pair for his back paws. Robert Hendrie, bowral NSW

One very very happy puppy in her new shoes. That was her first walk, they never came off and she was so happy!

I just wanted to thank you so much for your help. I know I’ve been a bit of a pain, but you’ve been wonderful, so I’m very grateful!

We own a smallish 13yo border collie, and I have found the velcro securing the dogboots tightens exactly around hor elbow, meaning as soon as she begins to walk, the boot moves down meaning they eventually interfere with her walking due to then extending too far past here toes.I have made a separate velcro strap for her that I use just south of the dog boots' own velcro that tightens around her foreleg and keeps the boot in place. Perhaps this will help someone else who has found the original dog boot just too "long" for their dog

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.

Looks can be deceptive .When we opened the parcel our first reaction was these are too small for his feet but had no choice but to try . We were wrong as with care on fitting to slide past toe nails they fitted well and in use have stayed properly positioned and resistant to attempts by our dog to remove .Recommended and do measure your dogs foot carefully before ordering.
