Top Paw® Hard Sole Outdoor Dog Bootie Set
Sizing chart on the package is spot on, it should be placed online in a printable format. Otherwise, visit the store with your dog. Zipper makes it (reasonably) easy to put them on, and the tongue for the zipper prevents the hair from getting caught. Velcro straps allow for a snug fit. The reflective tape is a nice touch. Easy to figure out which is left and right, the kids are convinced that there is a difference from front to back. If so, it takes some finesse to determine which is which. It was entertaining to watch her dance around at first, but she quickly got used to them. We're using them to protect the dog's feet on our daily walks, not backcountry bushwacking.

I have a Sheltie that has arthritis in his front feet and we are on our second pair of these. These fit him perfectly ...the zippers are perfect for his legs. I do trim the ties down to a shorter length and some thing I found really helped.....I bought some shoe gel inserts are cut them down popped them in the shoes and he has comfort plus now. The hard soles on these really protect him paws from stones. After getting wet I did find one shoe started to separate from the sole but I put some shoe goo on it and stuck it back together ...they are still going strong! One thing for sure...you need to try dog shoes on to get the right size....the charts they give are never accurate and they differ from brand to brand too.

It would be great if zipper height were greater
Sole is terrific but the height of the zipper is too short and one or more boots keeps falling off. To keep it on, I am afraid of shutting off circulation. This is particularly true of back paws. I used it last year when subzero and glad I did but it is easy to loose one if your dog tries to run or play in snow. Make sure the boot is large enough that does not cramp foot. But this also increases difficulty of keeping on. Also make sure you use the tongue on zipper correctly to keep fur from catching.
