I've been been kitting Aussie dogs out in Grip Trex 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!

Dogs require boots for so many different reasons.

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

Ruffwear Boots go the extra mile. 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.

Ruffwear revolutionized dog boot design when they came out with the Grip Trex Boots featuring an upper inspired by human shoes and a high performance Vibram sole. This changed everything.

BUILT ON AN ANATOMICAL MOLD JUST LIKE HUMAN SHOES

The Grip Trex Boot's upper maintains a consistent size, shape, and fit. The wide gusseted mouth ensures the boots are easy to put on, and a velcro strap makes them easy to secure. These boots provide continued comfort and a great fit.

HALLELUJAH these boots STAY ON!

Grip 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.

Unequaled grip, traction, durability and perfomance.

For the sole Ruffwear partnered with Vibram, the world's leading developer of soles for human active sports shoes, to produce the Grip Trex sole design with omnidirectional treads and traction zones customised to the demanding needs of dogs. This sole is is impenetrable to even the nastiest bindis and grass seeds Australia can muster up.

#1 Choice for Australian Army, Australian Police and Guide Dogs

Worn by Australian Police Dogs, Australian Military Canine Units, all the Guide Dogs in Australia, 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 bindies. They are also very effective in protecting against contact allergies.

Grip 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.

Let me help you get the RIGHT size the FIRST time!

Ruffwear base 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.

So let's do this!

1) Stand your dog on a sheet of paper. With your dog bearing weight on the paw first 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 paws require. Do NOT add any extra padding for - anything including liners. That is ALL figured in.

Ruffwear Boot Size

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.

Give your new boots a solid go 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.

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.

Just throw them in the washing machine to clean

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.

Great option to assist an old dog who drags his feet. Saving his nails and allowing him to still go for walks. Easy to put on and take off. Rosie G, Ferntree Gully VIC

Beautifully made size as per chart was correct fit Max , Telarah NSW

The boots fit well, do not come off with vigorous exercise, and fortunately, my dog is happy to wear them. If I decide not to put one, or both, on when we leave home and she starts limping on rough ground, we stop, I ask if she wants to put a boot on and she lifts her paw!! She then walks without limping. She usually only wears one as her left front paw only has 3 pads and her foot gets sore walking on rough ground. Occasionally on very rough ground, she wears both. Gerry Silk, HEATHMONT VIC

We purchased one pair of the dog boots to help our old dog who is slipping all over the place wth our hard floors. It was our vet's suggestion to do something to help him with better grip on the floor. Friends of ours had some Ruffwear boots for their dog, for the same reason, and recommended them. Ordering was easy. The boots are well made, good quality, solid material, the rubber is nice and grippy. The velcro straps make it nice and secure. The hardest part was working out the correct size. The ones our friends lent us were too big for our dog, and kept turning around on his dog's feet. We ended up ordering for the smallest size, I am unsure if it is a good fit or should have gone one size up. To our surprise, our dog has not tried to get the boots off at all, suggesting they are not bothering him. He is still getting used to them, as he needs to adjust his gait (due to his age, he drags his paws, which is fine with fur, not so good with rubber, so he needs to learn to lift his paws up). As a result he is tripping over a bit, I am hoping that it will improve as he gets used to them. Very happy with the product, whether it works with our dog remains to be seen.

Grant WilliamsThis has made an amazing difference to our Mia. She is 15 years old and still likes to run and bounce. Unfortunately her hips don't like her doing that on our wooden floor and her back end has been getting progressively weaker. With the boots on her back paws she can continue to bounce to her hearts content.

My Cocker Spaniels are happy with their Grip Trex boots while exploring the farm as there is no more prickles & sharp objects while they are running around, great quality boots.

5/5

I purchased 2 pair of boots, large for my dog’s front feet and a bit smaller for the rear. The boots are well-made and my dog finds them comfortable and they do not fall off. Because he is allergic to spring time pollen, he wears the boots on his daily walks. Additionally, he is an assistance dog, and he is required to walk on concrete a lot, and during the hot weather he will wear the boots because concrete gets very hot in the summer.Love the boots.Andrew N

5/5

Fantastic products, I highly recommend them. I was very happy with my purchases as my dog had to have an operation on his paw and because the boots are breathable and relatively soft but supportive he was very comfortable wearing them. The sock/liners are great too as they absorb sweat and are reinforced to stop the toenails from tearing them. These products made my life easier too so I will definitely be buying again - well done Zoe and thank you very much.
