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, 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, for a set of four boots.
U.S. Patent 7,971,557.

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 open wide - 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.

These boots are amazing! I have a boxer and I could never find shoes that fit right or stay on. These boots fixed both of those problems! We go on long hikes all the time. Through hills, rocky paths, creeks, and snowy days. These shoes stand up to anything! Unknown

This is the third set of Ultra Paws that I've had over the years here in the frozen tundra that is MinneSNOWta! These are the best booties for my very active Vizsla and the only ones that actually stay on! My dog absolutely MUST get out for her exercise and runs every day regardless of the weather, otherwise we pay the price. And these Ultra Paws ensure that this happens.
Customer service was top notch...I ordered on a Wednesday evening and had the package in my mailbox on Saturday...thanks so much!Howard Thornton

Rugged Dog Boots
The reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is for the sizing. The quality of the boot seems great! Although they were only worn around the house.
My dogs paws are right on the border of too big for a medium and too small for the large so I thought I would get her some socks with the large boots. The large boots are WAY too large. She has wide feet but shorter legs (she's a 7 month old Entlebucher Mountain Dog). I put them on her and they come up above her "ankle" and over her dew claw. I wish there was some better way to check for the sizing and maybe an info graphic to show exactly how the shoes are supposed to fit. Also, I think they might fit well on her back feet, but not her front. It would be nice to have that option when ordering to get 2 different sizes.
Seems like a great product, just not great info for sizing.
ULTRA PAWS RESPONSE: Sara, thank you for the feed back. Most dogs just need one boot size for all four paws. On occasion, it makes more sense to split the size. We are more than happy to do this, please call us directly.Sarah

Really Good Product
We first got these boots for winter hiking. They worked great and he seemed to like them after getting used to wearing them. Two years ago Jack got a foot infection and we began putting these boots on to protect his feet and keep dirt out and medicine in. In spite of many veterinary visits including the University of Florida veterinary school, the infection has persisted. He has a boot on his foot most of the time. They have held up well to a lot of hiking, and he does not seem to mind them, they must be comfortable. We also purchased a 'wound' boot for night time use, so his foot gets air when he's not outside. Very satisfied with this product.Dennis Brinton

Love these boots!
These boots have enabled our senior GSD to go for his daily walks. Despite a surgery two years ago—that was supposed to fix this problem—he has dragged his right front paw. If he didn't have these boots, his paw would be a gnarled, bloody mess! (Sorry for graphic details, but SO true!) Now, he can enjoy his senior years in peace and relatively pain-free. THANK YOU!
BTW, our GSD is now twelve and a half years old. Also, we only use these boots for taking him on walks outside. He does not wear them indoors or on our patio or in our yard.Merrie

Awesome! Finally a boot that stays on!
We have been using our Rugged Boots for a week now and they have been fantastic. Our dog Bruno is a super active, frisbee loving powderhound that has sores on both his back feet from breaking through the snow crusts. We tried other boots but with his activity level, nothing stayed on. The rugged boots have been 100% reliable. Not a single boot has come off. They are very easy to put on and Bruno doesn't mind them at all. His feet are healing nicely and he is able to chase frisbees and play as much as he wants. We will definitely try more of your products based on these boots! Thank you!Robin Kay
