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.

Life Changing

My sweet little senior dog (16 year old one eyed Pomeranian) has neurological problems that make it hard for her to walk. When we moved to a house with all hardwood floors, we tried so many things to help her get better footing. It was heartbreaking and worrisome to see her slipping and falling all the time. These toe grips are game changers! She is so much more confident on tile and wood floors now, no more slipping and sliding! We can immediately tell when one falls off because you can see a complete difference in how she walks. We have been using them for about a year now and have never had issues with them not staying on or her trying to take them off. They are tricky to get on, but they stay on very well. I’ve found that stretching them out with needle nose pliers a little first makes them easier to slide on.
Thank you for giving my dog her youth back! She is so much happier now with her grips.

What a turnaround!

My 13 year old doodle has been struggling with his back legs — losing muscle and has a hard time getting up on hardwood floors. I put the toe grips on his back paws only and it has made such a difference! So happy to have discovered these!

Best product out there

My golden retriever mix is 15 and going strong today because of these little nail covers. I tried many other options to help him with his stability on my hardwood floor and nothing really worked. Booties, Paw Friction, ... all failed. These stay on (with a little super glue) and give him the support/traction he needs to really improve his mobility.

Disappointed :(

I put these on my dog's toes and didn't notice any difference. I put them on properly like the picture/manual shows. They're also incredibly hard to put on and I felt like I was hurting my dog by putting pressure on her toes/feet.

Dear Tessa, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback. One of our company's missions is to provide HOPE for owners of senior and special needs dogs. I'm so sorry that, instead, we disappointed you. First of all, it sounds like your dog may have arthritis in the paws (toes). This is common in senior dogs, but by stabilizing each toe during application, we apply the ToeGrips into our own stabilization instead of putting pressure on the toes. In dogs who otherwise are reasonable about having their paws handled, this usually solves the issue you describe and makes application go smoothly. Did you have a chance to look at our video tutorials at https://toegrips.com/instructions/ before application? As to why they are not working, we'd love to troubleshoot that with you! Would you be willing to send us a few pictures of the ToeGrips on the nails for review? We stand behind our product through our customer service and with a 30-day money back guarantee. We don't want any customer to walk away feeling like they wasted their money. However, we'd really love to help your dog be successful with ToeGrips if you're willing to try again. Thank you, Dr. Julie Buzby
How Layla got her pep back!

Hard, slick surfaces have always caused Layla (11 Y/O- min-schnauzer) traction problems. Super easy to apply- they slip on in 5 minutes- before i apply I use a touch of super glue after I use her toe dremel to help give the nail an extra something to grip onto ( just like a human set of artificial nails). Since she’s been using the ToeGrips she’s had steady hind legs just standing in place. She trots about the house’s hoard wood and tile floors much easier. Even if she had her toes cleaned of her toe fluff she wasn’t able to keep a solid stance, Even sitting on her bum- her front feet would “moon walk” in place constantly and she’d have quivering hips when standing due to over working her thigh muscles. She’s doesn’t notice the ToeGrips in any instance now. She just thinks she’s Miss. Unstoppable now. Nice thing added is that it prevents scratch marks on the wood floors. People also think she has cute little red painted toes. Thanks for getting her back to her skippy, hoppy self in the house!
