Does anyone have experience using Paw Pads or another brand of pads to provide better traction? The last few weeks, Boo had been sliding on the tile floors. It seems to be some weakness in his back legs, though a vet visit last month did not reveal any signs of significant weakness or arthritis.

A friend suggested trying Paw Pads. However, I am hesitant, as I have no experience using such a product. Any advise or information is appreciated.

We bought some for Charlie to reduce slipping on our hardwood floors after his IVDD diagnosis. I don’t remember the brand, but they were these squares that had a sticky back that was supposed to leave no residue.. well I checked after a few days and a few of them had already left residue on my hardwood so I returned them. Ended up getting a carpet pad kind of like this one, which we cut to make a narrow pathway for him. Works wonderfully! (Looks less wonderful but oh well…)https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07GNVP5LZ?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

We used them for my prior dog, a corgi. She slowly lost the use of her hind legs and needed some help in pushing her wheel chair cart. They worked great for her. They are a little difficult to put on but if you sprinkle the insides with baby powder of cornstarch it helps. She would actually wear through the Pawz and we were able to extend the life of them by using duct tape on the Pawz to cover the holes. She went through a lot of Pawz during her decline. She was a 30 lb. dog and wore the size small. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B001J22876/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Be careful letting puppies have access to stairs independently in any case. It's really easy for young puppies to get hurt on stairs...
