Boots?

I have ordered and returned so many dog boots. The opening is never big enough to get her paw in with that fuzzy hair around it without pulling or bending her toes and hurting her. Others fall off too easily. The ones I have now the Bark Brite looked great but not only hard to get her foot in but also too tall they go up above her hock.

I would like something she can wear on wet and snow days but doesn't have to be super heavy duty. Lighter weight, extra wide opening to get on easily, snugs up good so won't slip off, comfy....oh and free would be nice since I'm making a list lol! (JK)

Anyone know a perfect Havanese boot?

Never used boots for the boys, but I have heard good things about Ultra Paws and Ruff Wear boots.

Thanks Sophie!
I have tried ultra paws and had to return, just hurt her to try and cram her feet in there. I have seen ruff wear but haven't owned them (yet) I may give those a try too thanks!

These sound promising too. Like the double velcro

I know several Beardie people who use Mukluks. Their dogs are a lot bigger than ours, but they have the same "hairy feet" problems. They tell me they stay on well.

I don't walk my dogs on the street in the winter because of all the salt (I feel like I HAVE to completely bathe their undercarriage completely to keep them from ingesting it!) so for mine, it's "just snow". So I just let them get wet and snowy. If they get snowballs, I hose them off with the warm spray in the sink, then towel dry and let them air dry the rest of the way. They seem fine with this.

Dee Dee, My first forever dog (who we lost 1 1/2 years ago) - was not a Havanese - (I'm awaiting my first Hav puppy). Anyways - I spent hundreds of dollars on boots. Although I had an American Hairless Terrier - it was a challenge to find boots that were rock solid and stay on. I would put sock on his paws first, then put the boots in. These boots will be the only thing to be passed down to our Havanese BFF. It will be trial an error of course.
But I wanted to share with you the best ever boots I found - from baxterboo.com. I've attached the link to see these on line - you may have to copy and paste the link however. I was trying to incorporate 2 pictures of my dog wearing them, but photo size too large. I had 2 sizes - one for his front paws and 1 for the back. While is legs were skinny, his paws were not and never fit the standard measurements. Anyways - they were easy to put on because they opened up with a zipper all the way in the front, then there's the Velcro strap as well as a tightening cord on the top of the boot - similar to a jacket hood with a cord. I will definitely be trying these in the winter for our new Havanese if we go for walks or other. But, the priority will be to have winter fun and games in our back yard without having to do this as well. We will see. Hope this helps!

You might check out Tammy and Teddy's. They do custom dog boots. The specialize in dogs with special needs but may work for what you are looking for as they also make boots for healthy dogs. Products - Tammy and Teddy's Foot or Paw Protection for Animals I had a pair for my corgi when whe was dragging her feet. They are well made. I don't use boots on Willow and we are out in the cold and snow and ice and it doesn't seem to phase her.

Just wondering if anyone has used PAWZ disposable boots? I have seen them at our pet store, but wonder if they will fit with furry paws? I'm considering buying them since we have had so much rain here.

I have used the PAWZ many times with my corgi. They are really thin and I don't think they would provide much protection from cold but they would keep the feet dry. They are hard to get on as they need to fit pretty tight. I used to sprinkle the insides with cornstarch or baby powder to help get them on. Being so thin, they did not last long if my corgi was on blacktop or concrete. But she was dragging her feet too so that was a factor. I used to have to reinforce them with duct tape.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering if they would stay on? It rarely gets colder than the 40's so that isn't so much a concern here. I just want to keep their paws clean and dry.
