Keep your dog safe and comfortable with Ruffwear's Summit Trex dog boots. The Ruffwear-designed outsole provides flexible traction, while the durable, weather-resistant ripstop upper blocks moisture and debris. A hook-and-loop closure system creates a secure and comfortable fit.

These dog boots will provide everyday traction and paw protection from a wide range of temperatures, abrasive surfaces and unseen hazards, while also improving mobility in older dogs. To help slide the boots on easier, use the Ruffwear Boot Liners.

The Summit Trex boots are great for dogs who engage in moderate activities and don't require a super grip sole. All Ruffwear boots are extremely functional and well made. Please be careful when sizing your dog as the Ruffwear dog boots do tend to run large so be sure to do a proper measurement. We care about your dog and are more than happy to do exchanges provided the boots haven't been worn outside. but it's definitely more convenient for you to get the right size the first time.

Key Features

  • Moisture and debris stay out via weather-resistant ripstop upper
  • Ruffwear-designed, non-marking outsole offers flexible traction and is built for high-mileage
  • Protects dogs’ paws from exposure to new environments: extreme temperatures and abrasive surfaces
  • Reliable, intuitive hook and loop cinch strap
  • Low-light visibility with reflective trim.

Intended Use

  • Walking or running on paved streets where hot pavement, street chemicals, or other hazards exist
  • Wet, rainy, or light snow conditions
  • To improve traction and mobility in older dogs

These dog boots are sold in pairs of 2 boots (not 4!) ... and for a good reason!

This may at first seem odd, but there's a method behind the madness. It is extremely common for dogs' front paws to be bigger than their back paws... sometimes as much as 2 or 3 sizes bigger. This is why I sell the boots in pairs of 2 so you can get the proper fit for the front paws and the proper fit for the back paws. When boots were sold in sets of 4 of the same size people ran into a lot of sizing issues. Over the years Ruffwear has opted to package the boots in pairs of 2  rather than the original sets of 4 for this very reason.

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.

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. Generally this includes 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 stay on?

Be accurate in your measurements and the boots should stay well. The most likely time for a boot to fall off is The when your dog is first trying them on as dogs tend to walk a bit oddly at first. Thats's another good reason to give them a solid go inside the house first. Whe you take them outside the first few times you might want to keep an eye on your canine adventurer. Once your dog adjusts to the boots they are much less likely to pop off.

Are the Boot Liners Necessary?

The Ruffwear Boot Liners add a great deal of value at little expense. It's easy to get the liners on your dog's paws. Once you've got the liners you'll find putting the paws into the boots much easier. With the digits of the paw confined nicely it's smooth sailing. They also wick away moisture from the paw as your dog does sweat from the paw...one of the only places a dog perspires. The liners will reduce friction on the paws too. You know the feeling when your sockless foot rubs on the inside of a shoe. 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.

dogs are slowly getting used to wearing boots. They are solid and work well Pauline S, KINGSWOOD SA

excellent quality and performance. we use for back legs / paws of an 18 year old Labradoodle that has hip issues such that she drags her rear legs and the boots protect the top of her paws from being being rubbed raw.

The other major advantage is grip on hardwood floors - with out the boots on her rear legs she slips and falls over and can't get back up!!!

Don't you just love old age!!!

Love them! They stay on and work as they should! Zillah, DIAMOND CREEK VIC

Great quality boots and easy to determine the perfect size for my dog. AHB, Mount Macedon VIC

These boots are extremely well made and durable. Easy to put on and take off and my dog runs around everywhere in them. She has knee problems and used to slip on the tiles and timber floor but since wearing the boots has not slipped once. I love them as they keep her safe. Christine, Brisbane, Qld, Brisbane QLD

Our female Labradoodle just turned 17. Her back legs and hips have been going for a year or so but she still gets along although she drags her back legs when tired. The result was she was getting sores and bleeding on the top of her paws as she dragged them. Also her back legs would give way on tile and timber floors.The Summt Trex have been a godsend - no more sores or bleeding and she now has traction on slippery surfaces.

5/5

Our 13 year old golden retriever has arthritis and also nerve damage in one of his back legs so it was getting harder and harder for him to be mobile because of a loss of traction and his feet would sometimes drag on the ground, giving him sores. After doing a bit of research we decided to try the Ruffwear Trex and after a week or so of getting used to them he's doing really well. Yesterday when it was time for a walk he was just about running, and it's been quite a while since he was able to do that. At first we were concerned he would try and pull them off but with a few treats he was fine and now he associates them with going for a walk it's no trouble at all. I'd recommend getting the Bark n Boot liners and make sure you measure your dog's paws properly as the boots need to be pretty snug to stay on.

the problem of wearing down his nails.

5/5

Excellent boots for our two greyhounds who have very long narrow paws, which can sometimes be a struggle to keep the boots on but the Summit Trex stay on very well. Have been using them for 3-4 years and just love them. Have also used them on our roddy X who had a corn.

5/5

The Ruffwear dog boots are helping my White Shepherd who has a spinal disease anddragging his back paws to walk and protect his nails.
