How To Measure Your Dog's Paws!
Proper footwear fit is essential to a fun day out (or in). Here's how to measure your pet's paws...
With your pet's paw on the ground, measure from the tip of the claws (those have to fit inside the shoe too) to the back of where the paw touches the ground, which is just behind the pad.
While your pet's paw is still on the ground, measure from side to side at the widest point of your pet's paw, which is usually near the base of the toes.
Handy Tip: Try having your pet step on a piece of paper, then trace around the paw. Then, while your pet is off eating your houseplants or terrorizing the neighborhood, you can measure the traced outline in peace.
How To Measure Your Dog!
I have worked with the finest furry tailors in the world, and am here to share my bounty of knowledge. Here's how to measure your pet...
Measure from the base of the tail (where it connects to the hindquarters) up to where the collar typically sits at the base of the neck, then follow up with a generous back scratch.
This is measured by giving your pet a
hug, during which you measure the entire circumference (all the way around) at the widest point of your pet's chest. This is typically right behind the front legs.
First, plenty of kisses. Then, measure the neck's circumference
(the distance around it) at the point where the collar sits.
Important Sizing Note: The given measurements are the dimensions of the actual product, not of the pet they fit. After measuring your pet, make sure all measurements fit within the following dimensions (with a little room to spare in the chest and neck).
The Ultra Paws® Rugged Dog Boot is made with dense, water resistant but breathable nylon material and wrapped with a recycled tire material.
Easy to put on - difficult to slip off.
Side seams expand - making it easy to put on the boot.
Two touch fastener® straps with slides fasten the boots closed.
Foam at the closure cushions the dog's foot when the boot is tightened.
Four boots per package.

Try our new printable size chart for Ultra Paws Boots! (Click the link to begin the PDF download.) Once the size chart has printed, simply place your pup's paw on the paper to determine the best size for your pet.
Measure your dog’s front paw to ensure a comfortable fitting boot.
If you prefer not to print the measuring guide, use a plain piece of paper. Place the paw on a piece of paper and press down on the top, mimicking how the paw spreads when the dog’s walking.
Mark the left and the right side on the paper and measure the distance between the marks. Compare this to the boot sizes. The width of the paw should be smaller than the boot size, for all boots except Traction (they can stretch a little). For example, if the foot width is 1 1/2 inches, order an X-Small at 1 3/4 inches.
Small: 2.25" width
Medium: 2.75" width
Large: 3.25" width
X-Large: 4" width
Success varies depending on the surface on which your dog is walking or running. Boots will show wear; the material used, while durable, are still fabrics. The more abrasive the surface, the faster the boot will show wear. Wear includes tears, holes, etc. and we can not accept returns in this condition. We've found that using "Shoe Goo" to repair holes or tears works well and gives your boots a longer life.
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 apply Shoe Goo as wear appears.
Exposure to chlorine will cause the dog boots to deteriorate quickly and are not suitable for use in chlorinated situations.
Our sweet playful Kodi decided to take a rest from some snow fun wearing his Ultra Paws Rugged Boots... he won't go anywhere in the snow without them! He's also wearing his favorite Baxterboo Blue Snow Coat that keeps him warm and dry. We're very happy to buy quality products from Baxterboo because their consistent customer service and online experience is top notch... Thanks Baxterboo!

I love these boots, I bought them for the convenience of putting Kona (my golden retriever) outside when it's muddy or gross out so I don't have to wipe her feet when she comes in again. She hates it as much as I do so when the boots arrived I was thrilled. It took her a while to get used to them as I think they were a little tight at first, I ordered a small, but once they stretched a bit they were great. Super easy to put on and take off, but she has yet to shed one on her own. As a bonus they offer a little more protection for her feet when we go for long rides in the bush or along a hard road.

I really, really like these boots but Henry walked with his hind legs way, way up in the air whenever he has them on. It takes several times of wearing them before he gets used to them. Great for winter weather and for protecting his paws.
Could be tougher

The front of the boots tear when my dog walks on the sidewalk. He has Degenerative Myelopathy so he drags his toes repeatedly, this causes the front edge of the boots to wear out pretty quickly. I am considering the idea of painting the booties with Bed Liner to see if this toughens them up enough for my application.
