Need bootie recommendations

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Sassy and I will most likely be moving to southern Nevada in the next couple months. It is going to be hot there in the summer months. Sassy has never worn booties and seeing as she is 15 years old plus it is going to be a necessity. So I am looking for recommendations for ones that are comfortable and easy to put on. Hopefully she will take to them. Thanks for any suggestions.

I found the best and cheapest boots are the ones I make myself. The material I use is felt and use Velcro to fasten them. It takes a short time to run them up on the sewing machine, they wash great and are nice and soft. I dislike the boots one can buy that have hard soles. Both our dogs dislike the rigid soled store bought books.

Stella was/is beginning to have a lot of problems staying upright so I went looking for traction boots. After a dismal experience with a cheap pair I bought on Amazon I searched this very forum and found several recommendations for UltraPaws. For our use the CozyPaws looked ideal and indeed they have been. These particular ones are a nitrile-dipped fleece so both flexible and grippy. I will admit that sized to fit they are non-trivial to put on and much easier if you have a helper. I can see why people give up trying, although I found I can do it alone with Stella on a grooming table if I am slow and patient. Only half of which I am any good at :)

Unfortunately for me, I am not a seamstress nor do I have a sewing machine. Thanks for the info though.

What size did you order?

XP (Extra Petite).  It's possible the sizing chart may vary depending on the style (there are several, depending on intended use). I used a caliper to measure Stella's back feet. For our purpose having two on the "drive wheels" seems to do the trick.
