Slip on Smooth Floors
|Megsie, Golden Retriever, Hertfordshire, UK
|Her owner writes "I bought the boot for her front paw a few
months ago as she has a cyst between two of her toes on her front
paw and she was having trouble walking on a new path being laid in
the woodland at the back of our house where we walked every day. Unfortunately,
after wearing it only twice she was seriously ill and we nearly lost
her and it has taken her quite a while, being an old lady, to recoup.
But....she was also having trouble walking on the tiles on our kitchen
floor and even getting up on the carpets in the other rooms as her
old paws no longer have the grip of younger pads! So I bought her
a pair for her back feet as well and she is a different dog! (although
I can't say she now bounds around like a youngster) but she now walks
confidently into the kitchen and it is so much easier for her to get
up on any surface.
I have now ordered a second set as she is again walking in the woods
and at this time of year it is very muddy in there and, just lately,
we have to cross a brook to get into the woods which during the summer
dries up, and, bless her, she does love to paddle across it! So I
will then have a set for her to walk in the mud and a set for her
to wear indoors."

Her owner writes:
I am writing to let you know how very satisfied we are with our
Pro-Active Paws Dog Boots!! They fit like a "glove"!!
Maggie, our golden, has been wearing them for a week now and she
clearly realizes they help make her life easier. She has been so
much happier with her ability to get up and down from a prone position
with much less expended effort than before. She has been more puppy
like in her play. When I tell her its time for her boots she cooperates
100% of the time and has never attempted to remove them.
I could not be happier with the boots and how they function. I
have shared your info with my vetrenarian and he too was pleased
with the improvment in Maggie's mobility I know many Golden owners
and I will be sharing your company's info with them as well. As
the owner of a service dog I am totally dedicated to her well being
and your product has helped in my quest to make a positive difference
in her quailty of life.
|Dundee, South Carolina, USA
|His owner writes: "We are thrilled with Dundee's boots. They
fit so well. Now he's got so much rear traction he sometimes slides
in the front, but not enough to cause a problem. I may not have mentioned
intially, but he has no left hip and a titanium right hip as well
as hair betwen his toes, so he was having great difficulty on our
new laminate floor. The boots have been a godsend. An added bonus
is that the boots have also given him confidence, so if he's not excited
he can manuever the floors better than before.
|Clancy - Chesapeake Bay Retriever - Virginia, USA
Clancy has loss of control of hind legs which causes them to slide
out from under him on stairs and slippery floors. He also drags
his paws and damages them
Rick writes: "We received the dog boots today, and Clancy
doesn't seem to mind them at all. He has showed no irritation, and
he has not attempted to chew them. I noticed that, as you said in
the instructions, it is crucial to get the lower strap tight to
keep the boots from sliding down. The boots appear to be satisfying
the primary reason we ordered them - to provide traction for his
hind legs on our slippery interior floors and stairs because he
has lost some of the motor control in his hind legs and drags his
feet. He has gone up the slippery hardwood steps twice now, and,
while he hesitated somewhat because of his recent experience with
the steps, his hind legs did not slip on the steps either time.
If anything, he had become conditioned to slipping, and he is now
having to make some adjustment to manage the amount of traction
now available. "

Jane, Sasha's owner writes:
Sasha has not walked for seven weeks now following spinal surgery,
her progress has been painfully slow.
Saturday morning the boots arrived, Sasha could not walk or stand
herself up. We tried the boots on her and by Saturday evening she
could stand herself up. Today I put her out on the patio with the
boots on and not only has she manged to stand herself up but she
has also walked the 6-7 metres back into the house.
I know the boots haven't magically made her walk, but they have
stopped her from slipping and they are also protecting her paws
from the scrapping so they have given her the confidence to try
Zora - Cavalier King Charles Spaniels - California, USA
Thanks for the boots. With some experimentation I think that I
have the method in hand. I did have to get some bitter apple as
my puppy wanted to chew on the front ones.
They fit and they stay on - you are right, they have to go on tight.
They don't twist and I really appreciate them. Zora, our puppy,
loves them. She was already bouncing a mile high the first time
we put them on and they keep the girls from slipping on the hardwood
floor - you know that fur between the toes.
I have enclosed a picture. As always Penny is her most composed
self and Zora - well, Zora is seven months old and was in a silly
I tried three other kinds of boots before I found you. My return
mail bill was high. Thank goodness for the Internet. Who would guess
that I could find the right boots in Ireland while sitting here
|Fila - British Columbia, Canada
|Diane writes: The boots work really well, and Fila doesnt
seem to mind them at all. She walked with them on right away, and
when she chased her ball on the lawn outside, the boots stayed on
just fine. The added bonus is that she can now walk on the kitchen
floor, as the boots give her some grip and she doesnt slide!
I think she was quite surprised!
Coonhound, California, USA
We are so gratefull to have found your "Dog Boots". They
have been a lifesaver. Ellee had surgery in April for a detached
tendon on her left hind foot. Since that time we have had to try
and keep her as quiet as possible. Until we found your wonderful
boots it was very difficult to keep her from slipping on our hardwood
floors. When she would get excited her front feet would loose traction
and she would fall. We were so afraid she would undo the surgery
and re-injure the tendon. Your boots work wonderfully and she doesn't
mind wearing them at all, as you can see from the attached pictures.
