If you go to a "good" pet supply store they should help you size the muttluks and try them on to make sure they fit.
It will be a struggle to get them on the first few times. My dogs quickly learn that getting them on means they are going for a long walk so they put up with it.
I sit the dog on my lap, I make sure all boot is fully opened up, i flatten out all the fur, i hold the ankle firmly with one hand, and holding the ankle i put my whole hand into the boot, quickly let go and wrap the velcro tightly. Once the foot is securely in and wrapped (and not going anywhere) I adjust the foot so it's all the way in, and then re-tighten the velcro so it's really snug and won't slide or go anywhere.
The dog always walks really silly at the beginning with the boots on, but it doesn't last. They quickly forget about the boots and start walking normally.
