Dog Ultimate Trail Boot Size: Large
Ultimate Trail Boots
I purchase these boots for my black lab. I intend to take him to hike the Camino de Santiago in Spain in the spring. Another person recommended playing with the dog (fetch) to get them to feel like the boots are fun. I did that and was successful with it. We have only hiked one time with them. 6 miles. The boots are great. They stay on. My dog ran off the trail and into the foxtail weeds. I guess he felt comfortable doing it with the boots on knowing his paws were safe. I was surprised at how well they worked.They did not come off once. He ran into the creeks, etc. It has been too hot to hike this summer and I don't want to kill my dog from the heat so we will get back to it in the fall. But the boots are worth the money. (And it is alot for me) they are made really well, and an old dog did make the adjustment fairly easily.

Best boots ever. I have 2 service dogs(1 retired this year) and because of having to be with me in cold MI winters with a lot of salt I needed boots that would keep their feet dry and warm. I also take them on hikes in an area with stones, weeds and twigs and these boots are great protection for their feet since they have a nice rubber sole and are easy to put on.
Yes, it takes a while for them to get used to them when they haven't worn them for a while, but once they do they seem to actually enjoy wearing them, especially in winter.

Excellent Trail Boots
I bought these "hiking boots" for my 7 year old Newfoundland who drags her feet when on our daily 2 mile walk. She wears down the pads on her rear feet to the point of bleeding. I have tried many different booties that usually only last one or two walks. These boots are of excellent quality. It only took two "practice walks" in the back yard and she was completely used to them. They are showing wear but holding up so far. I hope they will last for the rest of the summer at least. These are expensive, but worth it, if they save my beautiful baby from the pain she was in while walking "barefoot". I purchased size large. She is just under 100 lbs. They fit perfectly and don't fall off.

Great for use on snow and ice
This is the second pair of boots for my dog. They perform as described protecting his paws/pads from salt, sand and extreme cold. Great added traction too.
