Help me choose my dog’s size

Choose from 3 easy sizing options…

Measuring your dog’s nails (outlined in our video tutorial and our written instructions) is the gold standard for selecting the ideal size for your dog.

Our Size by Breed chart reflects 9 years of data and is accurate for the majority of dogs but is not a guarantee of size, especially for mixed breed dogs.

Follow the Written Instructions

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.

ToeGrips for dogs: Reviews

Elizabeth P Verified

ToeGrips are essential

ToeGrips are a must have for our spaniel who is elderly and can’t hold herself up on the wood floor without slipping, unless she’s wearing her toe grips, Toe grips are truly a blessing and we keep them on repeated order!

Amazing is understatement

My 10.5yr old had a bad acl repair in November, second surgery in February, and her leg atrophied 9cm since she hasn’t put full weight on her leg since November. Until the ToeGrips! She went from skipping on her toes to putting 90% of her weight on her bad leg as soon as I put these on! Her elbows don’t bow out and her gait is relatively smooth now. No more wipe outs on my hard floors and she’s excited for walks! I don’t have to carry her up and down the stairs anymore either.

No more slipping on the stairs for Sammy!

After our old terrier mix, Sammy, slipped a couple of times on the stairs–both going up and down–and even on the level wood floors in our house, I tried the ToeGrips. We measured his nails as per directions, got the medium size, and were able to apply them easily. It helps that he is an easy pup to work on! Since then—and it has been almost a month—no more slipping. We also had lots of snow during that time (Illinois), and the ToeGrips stayed in place even with him going outside to potty! I just signed up for a subscription to get new grips every 5 weeks.

Helping my Pom a ton!

My 8 year old Pom was not able to get traction on our hardwood floors and was slipping and her front legs were splaying out even when she was just standing. Once we put these grips on two weeks ago she is about 98 percent better and able to run and keep her feet under her. They have stayed on the whole time too! Wonderful. We are so thankful!

Harley’s success story

Harley, my 14 yr old pug could not walk on our tile floors without falling several times a day. He has a weak back and arthritis in his hips. After applying the toe grips the difference was remarkable. Harley can now maneuver throughout the house without falling. We have even seen him run a time or two. Thank you so much for your product from Harley and me! Just placed my second order!

Daisy has never been more active

Our 10 year old beagle has had a hard life unfortunately with horrible arthritis and spine issues. She has a horrible time standing and walking on any smooth surface for the past few years. I didn't want something that would stick or I would have to apply with glue in fear of it falling off or being licked off. ToeGrips have changed her life as she is a constant mover now. I dearly wish I would have found these sooner.

Toniann C Verified

Don’t wait!

Before I got around to putting them on, we had a terrible incident where he was given a medication which caused ataxia and my poor old man could barely move without falling over- it was heartbreaking.The morning this happened, while awaiting the callback from our vet, I remembered the Toe Grips and quickly put them on. Although they didn’t help with his loss of coordination, they provided the needed stability to prevent him from falling. It was truly amazing.

Excellent Product

We moved into a new home that has hardwood floors. Our girl, Kaiya (Great Pyrenees) wouldn’t walk on the hard floors, and when she did, she would slide around. We were so worried she’d hurt herself. These toe grips were a game changer. Kaiya walks everywhere now. We will definitely be ordering more. I highly recommend!

“5 stars! The BEST product out there!”

Amazing! Gave my dog his mobility back!

“ToeGrips allowed us to give Gus a new life!”

“He’s 15-years-old and his legs were just giving out. Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips allowed us to kinda give Gus a new life! They’re wonderful.”

How do ToeGrips dog nail grips work?

All natural for instant traction

We understand how frustrating it is to watch your dog slipping and struggling on hardwood or smooth floors. We care and we can help. We’ve helped thousands of senior dogs just like yours.

ToeGrips are all-natural nail grips that fit on the toenails of each of your dog’s paws for instant traction on slippery surfaces.

Better gripping means less slipping

Dogs use their toenails for traction. They flex their paws and engage their nails like soccer cleats digging into the ground.

But hard nails can’t grip hard floors. ToeGrips dog nail grips work by allowing your dog’s toenails to grip smooth surfaces like hardwood floors.

1. ToeGrips fit on the toenails of each of your dog’s paws.
2. The non-slip nail grips enable instant traction by creating a “grip zone” between the toenails and hard- surface floors and stairs.
3. With better grip, your dog has instant freedom and newfound confidence.

Frequently asked questions

How quickly do ToeGrips work?

The non-slip nail grips fit onto your dog’s toenails to enable instant traction on hard-surface floors and stairs.

How long do ToeGrips dog nail grips last?

ToeGrips® dog nail grips typically last 1-3 months, two months on average. “Mileage” will vary based on your dog’s size, environment, and gait. The more abnormal your dog’s gait, the faster ToeGrips® dog nail grips will wear.

Will my dog chew these off?

Most people assume this is a common scenario, but 97% of dogs do not bother with or chew at their ToeGrips® dog nail grips. In fact, most dogs don’t even seem to notice them, which makes sense because ToeGrips® dog nail grips sit on the poorly innervated nail tip, as opposed to covering skin/soft tissue of the paws and paw pads.

As a veterinarian, ingestion was one of Dr. Buzby’s primary concerns years ago when bringing ToeGrips® dog nail grips to the marketplace. She consulted with several colleagues, including surgeons, about this issue and everyone agreed that based on the size of dog and size of corresponding ToeGrips® dog nail grips, they should pass right through a dog’s GI tract. To date, that has always been the case. Furthermore, ToeGrips® dog nail grips are FDA-certified non-toxic.

Game changer!

I have a 13yr old Pit/Greyhound mix that is still very spry for her age and continues to sprint around the house like a puppy. Unfortunately, her ability to stop without slipping and falling is near to impossible. Ceramic tile/hardwood and a moderately active long-legged senior dog are not a good combination. We tried several versions of booties and even footpad salve to help curb the number of times she slips on her bum, with no real solution. Her chiropractor is actually the one that recommended the ToeGrips! Admittedly, they are a bit awkward to put on and I cannot stress this enough, accurate sizing is paramount for them to be effective. Trust me, they are worth every penny! I was on the fence about spending $35 on tiny pieces of plastic but after just an hour of her confidently trotting around the house, without her old bony butt falling, I was SOLD. We'll be repeat customers for hopefully several more years to come. So far only one has fallen off and I'm sure that has more to do with my application and finding the right placement. Otherwise, these suckers have weathered going outside multiple times without the annoying putting on and taking off that booties required. A million thank you's for giving my ol'girl the comfort and confidence she needed to enjoy her remaining Golden years!


I was a little skeptical at first, but bought them for my 13.5 year old, he had been slipping and falling multiple times a day on my laminate floor. I put them on 1.5 weeks ago, and it’s like magic. He has not slipped once and now runs around the house!!!! Only one has fallen off, but easily re-applied. Little bit of a learning curve to learn how to measure the nail, as well as re-apply, but easy once you get the hang of it. (He does not have them on in the picture, but he just looks so adorable!)

I too think you've developed a very product, I'm very impressed with your customer service. You also sent me a new pack when I determined that the one I initially ordered was too small. The traction that the toe grips provide is very good, but not quite what I was hoping them to be.

Brian S

I not only think you've developed a fantastic product, I'm super impressed with your customer service. I LOVED that you sent me a new pack when I determined that one of the packs was too small. Keep doing what you're doing!
