Does breaking in your boots leave your dogs barking?
Well, just like human shoes, dog boots have a break-in period, too.

Have you ever taken your dog on unfamiliar terrain that had them limping the next day?
That's because dogs' pads harden over time and terrain.
Dog boots can help with that, but they still need a break-in period. After all, would you go for a long run in brand new shoes without socks?

Here are a few things you can do to help break-in your dog's boots.

* Work them. When you first get the boots, work them in your hands so the sole becomes more pliable.
Because of their weight, small dogs have a particularly hard time softening the outsole, so breaking them in with your hands can really help them become more comfortable, quickly.

* Take it slow. Start by putting the boots on in the house for a couple minutes, then try short adventures outside; gradually increasing the time spent in the boots.

* Stop and check. Each time you use the boots during the break-in period, stop and check for rubbing and hot spots.
This is also a great time to check the strap tension and fit, so the boots stay secure.

* Socks for dogs? Just like socks help with the overall comfort of our shoes, boot liners can help with a dog's overall comfort, providing a soft, wicking layer between the paw and the boot. (See Ruffwear Bark N Boot Liners - sold separately)

* Get the right fit. Getting the right size boot not only ensures the boot will stay on and upright, but it also helps with boot comfort.
The boot strap should fit snugly above the metatarsal/metacarpal pad, but below the carpal pad and dew claw.
It should fit with little excess room from left to right, and front to back, and bend at a 45-degree angle where the dog's paw naturally bends.

* The boot dance. Your dog will most likely dance their first time in boots. Don't be alarmed as this is a natural reaction. You might be surprised how quickly your dog will get used to the idea of boots if you follow these tips for getting your dog used to boots.

Love them!

I bought these as we have fluffy feet and polished floors - they work a treat! I just have them on for an hour or two morning and night while the dogs are most boisterous. They do take a little while to 'break in', and it took me a bit to figure out how tight to adjust them but now we're good. The dogs didn't mind them from the start so it was easy to get them on. Really happy.

Purchased these boots after reading the reviews. Wish I hadn't, they went cheap and even though i followed the directions on how to measure properly, they don't stay on so no would not recommend these boots, complete waste of money.
