I've read many reviews about these Ruffwear Booties. My dogs run 80-100km per month and glass and spills over the road became a hazard and injury.
AFP booties ($40 for 4 booties) lasted 150km before burning through the sole.
Ruffwear Booties picture so far after 100km yes the tread has worn down on my paw dragging dog but the central sole is still long lasting and protective from glass.
Draw backs? GET THE SOCKS! I wish Ruffwear advertised this more heavily, before my lead dog ended up with blisters on all his toe knuckles and badly rubbed dew claw that he ran away from the shoes this is within the first 10km of having them.
The boots are almost "too sturdy" built human sports socks don't cut it due to the precise size of the boot (I tired)
But now the skin is healed, wearing ruffwear socks and the shoes are heavily broken in. The dogs can't be stopped.
I wouldn't be disappointed if I had to replace my lead dogs shoes every 10months as I replace my own runners every 500km hes a paw dragger, companies can't help that. My other dogs shoes 100km in still look brand new they will be a life time pair!
My almost 14 year old German Shepherd has a degenerative spinal condition causing her hind quarters to sway and dragging her hind feet so that she wears her nails from above. Our vet suggested boots as a way to give her grip and also prevent her nails from becoming infected. She is now on her 4th pair - each pair lasts her about 3 months but they have really helped her walking ability both outdoors and indoors. Our house has a mixture of tiles and timber floors so all slippery. She also attracts attention as many people assume they are worn for fashion rather than to support her walking :)
I purchased these boots for my dog as she has very sensitive foot pads and often tears them after running or a decent walk. we had tried several solutions first. She got used to them very quickly. Her foot measurements are right between sizes, she is a working dog mix of koolie, collie and kelpy with a few extra additions :) i got her size 1.75 although as the back feet are slightly smaller than the front i probably could have got a size down for the back feet.
They were very easy to put on but without ensuring they were on very tight the front shoes slipped just under her jew claws so they hanging over the top, i didn't think this looked comfortable but it didn't happen when they were on very firm. They didn't appear to slip and she didn't seem at all bothered with them on nor did her gait change, she even tried them out running. her feet looked good with no trapped moisture when i took them off after about 7kms. I was a bit paranoid that i would loose them, they are certainly not the cheapest dog shoes but hey did not fall off at all and the price is definitely worth it for they quality and you can see from the image below, very fetching ;)
