Ruffwear Polar Trex Dog Boots - Vibram® Outsole
Closeouts. Ruffwear's Polar Trex dog boots work wonders to protect your dog's paws from cold snow and ice. On the bottom is an ice-specific Vibram® Icetrek® outsole that lends excellent grip on wintry surfaces, and on top is a secure-fitting soft shell with a water-resistant finish.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Alli-MT from Montana on Saturday, February 10, 2018I'm using these boots on my old GSD's hind feet. They run a little large, FYI, but come a good way up her leg for extra coverage and protection. The soles make a noticeable difference in keeping her upright when sidewalks turn to ice rinks.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Skittle's Mom from Vermont on Tuesday, January 10, 2017Order two sizes, just to be sure - the smaller size fit perfectly and stayed on as long as Skittle did his 'I am a dog and don't want to wear shoes' dance in the house. As soon as we went outside - they came right off. I had read that short-haired dogs would have better luck keeping boots on with sock liners, so we tried that. No dice. The socks came up a bit past the top of the boots, so I was concerned that the socks would get snowy/wet, so I added a bit of vet wrap to cover the top of the boots and go up past the socks - hoped this would help keep the boots on, and it did. But it really only worked effectively when I wrapped the vet wrap up past his knees. Not sure this is much of a solution. These are headed back and the search continues.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Swiss Miss Molly Brown from Colorado on Tuesday, December 27, 2016We've used this brand before and have had a great experience, but this new model just doesn't cut it for a high active pup. The high cut is a great advancement but the plastic locking buckle is the killer, it doesn't stay locked and the boots end up flying off while the dog is running. This happened on all 4 boots. Back to hook & loop (Velcro), it's proven, it works. These may work for a nice strolll, but not for running.
