Please rate your snow boots

I thought this might be helpful with all the snow we've been getting. I never thought I'd be buying boots for my guys! I bought the Pawz latex booties tonight. My boys had no problem walking in them. So here is my review:



Ease getting on- Difficult but not bad once I got the hang of it
Ease getting off- They pulled right off
Stays on- They only had them on for an hour but they stayed in place
Ease to walk in- They didn't have a problem
Warm- no

I got the size small.

Please rate boots you like and are currently using. Please let us know what size too!

I also read Neo Paws, muttluks and Ruffwear got the best ratings. I will probably get a better set of boots once my guys get used to the idea of something on their feet.

I bought the heavyweight fleece boots at dogbooties.com ($10 for a set of 4).
Easy to put on and take off (have slightly stretchy velcro straps)
Comfortable to walk in (no crazy dancing around)
Come in another material (Cordura) that is water resistant, for the same price, but I haven't tried them yet. The fleece boots do keep ice and snow out of paws, but get wet.
I bought the xxxs (for 7 lb dog) and xxs (for 18 lb dog)

I got the small. The red are small. I wish they were black but the color determines the size so you don't have a choice.

They aren't warm but my guys have more trouble with the salt and snow between their toes if i don't use the paw wax.

Thanks! I will go to their website now!! Someone else mentioned them in my other thread. They look adorable. I am looking for comfort more than anything. My guys need to want to walk in them. Do they stay on?

We have Muttluks XS … can't rate anything other than ease of getting on, which gets an F-. I worked for 20 minutes and had one on halfway. So I gave up.

I was the one on the other thread as well. The fit is adjustable with the velcro. Since it's a bit stretchy, it can be tightened pretty snugly, and ours are staying on. It would be important to get the right size, and they have sizing information to help with that.

Just in case anyone is interested. I did a lot of research on boots. I wanted a boot that would stand up to water, ice, salt and road surface. Tried several different high rated boots and it seems the disposable PAWZ are the best for us. Fred wouldn't walk in the Muttluks or Ultra Paws. Scudder was slipping and sliding in both the Ultra Paws and Muttluks. Bella loved her fleece boots, but they kept falling off. I think these boots are hard to keep on our Hav's hairy legs! The Pawz are great. They stay, are light weight and my guys can run full tilt in them. I sprinkle them with baby powder after each use and can use them over and over again even for street walks!

Has anyone found any that are good for mud? Easier to clean boots than paws!

The PAWZ are great for mud. I find them very easy to put on. I just put my guys on their back, stretch the opening with both hands and slip on. Make sure the nails touch the end and the dew claw is in.
