How to select the right size for your dog:

Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the middle of the toenail. 

Step 2:  While holding the floss around the nail circumference with one hand, use a fine point Sharpie® to mark across both pieces of floss. This will create two points. 

Step 3: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.

Step 4: Repeat for all 4 nails on one front paw and one hind paw (not the dewclaw).

Step 5: Based on the measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart below to find your dog's size. Sometimes a dog will require a combination of two sizes.

New Lease on Life

I have tried so many different solutions and these are the best yet. The little toe grips keep my 10 year old greyhound from falling like ‘Bambi on ice’ on our wood floors. I used a dab of super glue to keep them on, and they stay on for a couple of weeks. Nothing else I’ve ever tried has worked for more than a couple of days. Cheats is able to run around like a three year old again without fear of falling. Her confidence is coming back and she is actually prancing like she used to.
These grips also protect my floors from her claws scratching them and make her super quiet when walking around. No more clicking noises on the floors.
She wears two sizes, L and XL. Which the terrific staff at Dr. Buzby’s helped me to determine. They actually reached out to me via email before shipping my order to confirm something that they suspected I had made an error on. They’re great and sincerely want to help their customers and dogs to be successful. Great customer service.
Love this product.

Highly Recommended!

ToeGrips are great! I recommend them every time anyone asks me what is on my dog's toes! Our vet actually recommended them and measured Max as well as helping with putting his first set on. It was nice to have pro help at the start, so I do suggest having a vet help with choosing the right size if possible. Max is 11 (beagle mix) with arthritis and was always slipping on our hardwood floors and unfortunately tore an ACL ;( before we discovered ToeGrips. Now he is so much more surefooted! He is a bit in between sizes. The smaller size (L) seems to be better overall but with both L and XL we find that over time the grips do stretch a bit and fall off at will. However that is a small issue compared to how well they work overall! We are definitely customers for life!

A Game Changer for my 14.5 year old Senior

My 14.5 year old, 40 pound, Springer/Rat Terrier/Border Collie rescue was having difficulty standing up when laying down on hardwood or tile surfaces. Mostly her back legs. Upon applying Toegrips to her back paws (did not need to apply to front paws), it was a complete game changer. She's able to stand with ease on these surfaces. She even has more confidence on walks with her back legs. These are amazing and I highly recommend for any senior who is having difficulty with slipping or standing on slick surfaces. Thank you!!

Wood Floors are not so scarey anymore!!!!

Lilah my senior rescue was afraid to walk on the wood floors because of sliding. She has hip dysplasia and sliding around just makes it worse and painful. The toegrips have allowed her to move around more freely and without any fear. It's given her confidence that's made her happier and more involved with everything that goes on in the house.

Back to normal!

Our very active 12 year old golden retriever, Cay, has been having increasing difficulties standing up on our tile kitchen floor and also going up and down our uncarpeted wooden stairs for the past few months. Our veterinarian is unsure why she is having these difficulties, and--because of her age--did not recommend any further extensive evaluation. We had heard of Dr. Buzby's toe grips from a friend who had successfully used them with her dog. But we procrastinated because we thought that the toe grips would likely come off when she was running in the woods (we take her out daily for about an hour). Over the past several weeks, her symptoms became much worse, so we decided to try the toe grips. We received them a couple of weeks ago. She didn't mind having them put on at all. Ever since we put them on her, she has had absolutely no further slipping or sliding on the tile floor or on the stairs. We continue to take her out into the woods every day, and so far, she has not lost a single toe grip in the woods. The toe grips have made a huge difference for her comfort and safety and for our peace of mind.
