What My Top Dog Should Know About The Pawks Anti-Slip Dog Socks:
It is important to keep your dog’s claws trimmed in order to prevent damaging tears. Initially, your dog may prance while wearing the socks. After a few wears, your dog should become accustomed to the feeling and walk naturally.
Training your dog to wear boots is more about patience on your part rather than the dog’s. It will take some time, especially if your pooch has an issue with someone handling his feet. Work slowly and at your dog’s pace.
Have your dog in a standing position (get some help from another person if your dog won’t stand) on a non-slip area—carpet works best.
Slip a boot on one of his feet but don’t fasten it.
Take the boot off and reward your dog with a small treat.
The next day, repeat the process, only place the boot on a different foot. Don’t forget to reward your dog.
Repeat this process each day using a different foot. Once you’ve accomplished placing the boot on each foot individually, try putting boots on two paws at the same time. Each day, put the boots on two different paws.
Eventually work your way up to placing all four boots on your dog’s paws at the same time, but don’t fasten them.
Once your dog is comfortable with wearing all four boots unfastened, start the process over with one boot on one foot with a fastened boot. By this time, your dog should be pretty comfortable with you handling his feet and wearing the boots because he knows he’ll receive a tasty treat when he’s done.

How To Measure For Dog Boots
You wouldn’t want to stick your size 10 foot in a size 8 shoe because it’d be incredibly uncomfortable. The same goes for your dog, which is why we’re here to help you measure your dog’s foot to ensure a comfortable fitting boot.
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.
