What My Top Dog Should Know About Ultra Paws Durable Dog Boots:
To measure the width of your dog’s paw, simply place their paw on a piece of paper and gently push down to mimic the pressure a dog puts on their feet as they walk. Mark each side of the paw at its widest point and measure the distance between marks. Be sure to order boots slightly larger, so your dog’s paw has room to move inside.

How To Measure For Dog Boots
To measure the width of your dog’s foot, place the foot on a piece of paper and press down on the top of the foot, mimicking how the foot spreads when the dog’s walking.
Mark the left and the right side of the foot on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the boot sizes. The width of the foot should be smaller than the boot size. For example, if the foot width is 1 1/2 inches, order an XSmall at 1 3/4 inches.
Unfortunately, there isn't a perfect solution for dogs that drag their feet. - we haven't found a material that will stand up to dragging and still be comfortable for the dog. Some customers use the Rugged boots and then apply Shoe Goo as wear appears.
Does My Dog Need Boots?
Consider the type of activities your dog does and what kind of surface he does them on. If any of the following apply to your dog, he may need a set of dog boots to protect his feet.
You live in a part of the country that experiences snowy and icy winters where salt or other chemicals are used to keep sidewalks and streets clear. These types of chemicals can irritate the pads of your dog’s feet, causing dryness and painful cracking and bleeding.
Your dog walks on hot pavement in the summer.
You pooch walks and runs a lot.
You take your dog for walks over rough surfaces – rocks, thorns, foxtails, burrs, etc.
Your dog has a paw injury.
Your dog has a skin condition that causes him to scratch himself constantly
To ensure the best fit, please refer to one of the following measuring and sizing charts:

Signs of burned pads:
limping or refusing to walk
licking or chewing at the feet
pads darker in color
missing part of pad
blisters or redness
Be careful if you take your dog swimming and then go on hot pavement.
The time in the water softens their pads so dry off the paws and walk on the grass. Burned pad first aid
It is important to keep the foot area cool and clean. As soon as you notice the problem (limping along on the road), flush with cool water or a cool compress if available. Get the dog to a grassy area or if possible, carry him.
At first chance, your vet should examine your dog for signs of deeper burns, blisters and possibility of infection. Your vet will determine if antibiotics or pain medication is needed. Washing the feet with a gentle cleanser and keeping them clean is important. Bandaging can be difficult to do and to maintain (monitor and change often), but licking must be kept to a minimum.
Dog boots works great to stop the licking because the double straps keep it secure.
Some dogs will tolerate a sock to keep the area clean, but caution is advised for dogs that may chew and ingest the sock. Lick deterrents (bitter sprays) may help reduce the damage caused by licking.
Best advice is to be mindful of hot surfaces -- asphalt and metal (i.e. boat dock, car or truck surfaces) -- and walk your dog on the cool side of the street or in the grass. Another tip is to lay down a wet towel for your dog to stand on when grassy areas are not available Dog Boot Buying Tips, click here
Preventing Dog Paw Injury in the Summer Heat
There are several measures that dog owners can take to prevent burns and injury to a dog's paw pads. Some of these preventative measures designed to prevent pad injuries will also make the dog less vulnerable to other summertime pet dangers, like canine heat stroke and sunburn.
Tips For Dog Summer Safety
Walk the dog in the early morning or evening to avoid paw pad burns. Avoid walking the dog in the heat of the day, when the sun beats down, heating the pavement and sand.
Walk the dog on the grass. The grass remains cooler than the sidewalk, lessening a dog's chance of paw pad injuries in the summer. This makes a trip to a shady park a good option for an afternoon walk in the summertime.
Take frequent dog walks on the pavement during cool times of day. This will help toughen a dog's paw pads by promoting the formation of callus. This makes the skin of the dog's foot pads thicker and less prone to injuries like burns and cuts. Dogs who rarely walk on pavement will have more sensitive paw pads and they require more frequent nail clippings, as walking on pavement files the dog's nails.
Moisturize the dog's paws on a daily basis. Keep a dog's paws well moisturized with Vaseline® or a special paw pad balm or cream, like Musher's Secret®. Moisturizing the dog's paw pads will prevent cracking, peeling and minor pad cuts. These injuries will cause the dog's pads to become more sensitive once healing is complete, so preventing injury is key.
