Designed for active hard charging dogs when extra sole protection is needed. Incorporating the same design as the Ultra Paws Durable boot, it has a recycled tire sole, about 50% thicker than the Durable sole, that is less pliable and suited for tougher conditions. This is the boot for hunters, urban settings on asphalt or concrete, snow, and protection from salt in the winter.
Four sizes based on width of paw.
$36.95 to $39.95 depending on size.
U.S. Patent 7,971,557. Other patents pending.
Easy to put on - difficult to slip off.
Small 2 1/4" width; Medium 2 3/4" width; Large 3 1/4" width; XLarge 4" width
Side seams expand - making it easy to put on the boot.
Two Velcro® straps with slides fasten the boots.
Foam at the closure cushions the dog's foot when the boot is tightened.
The foam creates a secure grip - these boots stay on!
Tough, water resistant 1000 denier nylon material with the top of the toe wrapped.
The sole is a recycled tire material that is flexible, skid resistant and durable.
The sole performs in wet and dry, hot and cold conditions and is suited for tougher conditions.
To extend the life of your boots we recommend applying Shoe Goo to patch small holes in the sole that can appear with wear. Some hunters will pre-apply Shoe Goo when in extreme conditions. See Product SG.
Our Australian Shepherd tends to develop sores on his pads after a day of playing with the pack at doggie daycare, so the daycare now requires him to wear boots to protect his feet. We were at our wits' end trying to find dog boots that would not come off -- we tried numerous types of boots with absolutely no success (and a lot of expense). Hurrah for Ultra Paws! They are the only boots that actually stay on his feet!
Would have given these boots the full five stars except for the "durability" factor of the "soles"...considering that these are used only about three or four days a month, the soles just don't hold up as well as we had hoped but we realize that this could be due to how "hard" our dog digs in when he runs and plays, even though the play yard is primarily grass. We just keep an extra set of boots on hand so that we can swap out individual boots when the soles split or develop holes that are too large to repair with Shoe Goo.
The Ultra Paws Rugged Boots work very well for our furry friend and he's stylin' in his new shoes on his play days. Thanks for a great product.Amy K.

A boot that stays on
Received a set of boots from another company and they fell off and or turned upside down. First time I put these on my GSP they stayed on and never moved. These are lighter than the other one I had tried so it was easier for her to run in them. Happy with these boots and would recommended them!Unknown

Dog Boots Protect Sore Paw
I first got these boots for winter hiking with my dog. After he got a difficult to treat infection on his paw, we have been using these boots to keep the medicine in his toe area, and dirt and contaminants out. They also keep him from chewing on his toes. He has a boot on his paw all the time and I think they have held up pretty well. We rotate the boots so he has a fresh one, and wash the used boots. At times we dis-infect the boots with a bleach water solution. In spite of several specialist vets intervention, including U of Florida veterinary school visits, the infection persists and he will probably have these boots on his paw for the rest of his life.Denny

Durable, but not comfy for our dogs
I was really excited to get this product. We have new hardwood floors and the dogs scratching them was an issue. We chose this product because it was recommended in the product use chart for this purpose. The boots have little "slits" on each side so that you could open it enough to comfortably get the dogs paws inside. That with the velcro ended up irritating one our dogs' paws.
Our larger dog seemed comfortable in her boots, but ate one of them right off her foot (however in the product's defense, she's a St. Bernard and can probably eat a full sized car is she wanted).
I think this could be a good product for occasional use, but it did not work for what we needed.
