DOG SHOES & BOOTIES SIZE GUIDE

For dog shoes and booties, please refer to individual sizing guides in product descriptions.  Download and print out on paper and fit your dog's paw on to the appropriate size.  When putting shoes on for your dog, please make sure that the entire paw is pushed into the shoe (check by feeling bottom of booties) and tongue of the shoe is not twisted before zipping it up.  This allows for maximum comfort. The shoe zipper has to be fully zipped and the velcro should be securely fastened around ankles for proper usage. 

 

Note that if your dog has not worn shoes before, it may take some time to get use to.  We suggest wearing the shoes for about an hour every day for a week to help your dog break into the new booties.  Your dog may walk funny or stand or sit still.  Encourage them to move around and feel more comfortable with wearing shoes.  Your dog should always be supervised and should not be left unattended when wearing shoes.  Please do not put shoes on your dog when paws and ankles are wet or injured or have any other medial conditions.  Do not leave shoes on your dog for long periods of time (more than 5 hours) as the heat may cause discomfort and irritation to your dog.  

How do you know what size shoe your dog is?

Measure your dog's front paw to ensure a comfortable fitting boot. Place the paw on a piece of paper and press down on the top, mimicking how the paw spreads when the dog's walking. Mark the left and the right side on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the boot sizes.

 

Do paws determine size of dog?

In general paws are proportionate to their size at that time, however as a puppy there are times when the paws grow faster than the rest of the body. Also just like people there can be small dogs with big feet and big dogs with small feet (collies are a good example).
