The Pawz dog boots look similar to a balloon with a tight top.
Pawsh Pads stay on. Period. We took Chester to the dog park on the weekend and he raced around for more than an hour, probably covering 10 kilometres by the time he’d finished running about. Unlike the Pawz balloon-type boots, these stayed on all four paws through the entire park visit.
This is a great idea!!!!…and we wish we would have thought of it. We were onto the Pawz boots awhile back after the shoes were a flop. Boo made it look so easy to wear Pawz. Unfortunately after much struggling by mommy and acrobatics to squeeze that little balloon over my feet she gave it up. We are very interested in trying Pawz Jawz!
So dog owners like Nick Kouts, 41, of the Upper West Side are using dog boots to protect their pets’ paws. Kouts prefers Pawz Dog Boots. They look like un-inflated balloons, he said, and are made of natural rubber that allow the dog to feel the ground as they walk. Pawz don’t slip off the dogs’ paws easily, he pointed out, although he concedes that the elastic around the top can make it challenging to get the boots on and off.My biggest concern about trying the Pawz boots was thinking that the thick, oversized balloons might be difficult to get on the dog’s foot, but Tyler was very patient as I practiced getting his feet into the rubber booties. Although I can manage to put the boots on Tyler by myself — holding the boot open with one hand and guiding the dog’s foot with the other hand — I do find it very helpful to have another person help with the process.I had been curious about the balloon-like paw protectors for a while — I am always on the lookout for a dog boot that will stay on and help prevent snow balls from forming around the pads on his paws. An opportunity to try the disposable/reusable rubber boots came along earlier this winter. Kirstin, A friend and fellow dog-lover had bought a pack of 12 large Pawz but only needed four of the boots for her rottweiler. She offered four of the remaining booties to Chris who was looking for a solution to stop her golden retriever from licking a wounded paw. When I mentioned my interest in trying Pawz on Tyler to protect his feet from winter sidewalk salt, I became the lucky recipient of the final set of four boots.Looking for a good stocking stuffer for your pup? You may want to check out PAWZ booties. I received a free packet of booties and their new “Hot Coat Cool Harness 1Z coat” for Dash to try out. The booties reminded me of balloons! Dash is very paw sensitive, so it took a few tries for me to get them on his feet. Even then, he wouldn’t let me do all four. But they went easily on and he didn’t seem to mind walking around in them at all. These will be absolutely perfect when it snows and there is salt on the ground. The packet comes with 12 disposable (but reusable) boots. Not only are they reusable, they are 100% biodegradable. You just slip them on and they stay on – no zippers or laces to worry about. Fitted like a sock, they are made out of natural rubber and keep your pup’s paws waterproof. They come in all sorts of sizes, not just for the little dogs! I think what made Dash tolerate them is that the rubber is flexible, so he can still feel the floor (unlike with dog shoes). PAWZ boots have so many uses – not just the ice/snow melt – but hot pavements, keeping your house free of muddy paws, and even medical.The boots did not slow Tyler down in the least. In fact, our winter walks took less time when he was wearing the purple Pawz because he no longer limped over the salty sidewalks and spent less time stopping to chew at the snowballs that form on his feet. The rubber boots have not only proven useful for cold and snowy days, but also for wet and muddy days — a great way to keep his feet clean when the mud puddles can’t be avoided. I was so pleased with the first trial set of boots, that I bought my own package of 12 Pawz — a set of four to keep at the cabin for snowshoe walks in the deep snow, a set to keep in the car for dog park adventures, and a set at home for a daily jaunt around the neighborhood.We are proud to carry dog boots from Muttluks, Pawz Disposable Balloon Dog Boots, and Ruff Wear.
