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.

For Claudia

These toe grips helped Claudia Jean to get up on the hard wood floor and to go up and down stairs. They helped extend her life by 1 year. They were easy to apply and lasted for 6-8 weeks. As a Veterinary Technician I would recommend this product to owners who were concerned about mobility in their older pets

Game-changer for Gabby!

The new home we moved into has new wood floors and my senior Samoyed, Gabby, has some nerve damage to her lower back and rear. Bad combination. She was slipping and crashing hard every day. We bought a few rugs but in the course of three months, she had become fearful of the floor. During her annual senior wellness exam, I mentioned it to my vet and she strongly recommended toe grips for Gabby. From the moment I put on her sassy purple toe grips, her life changed for the (much, much) better. She became confident again. She still runs too fast on the floor, particularly when food is involved, and sometimes loses her balance but is able to correct before falling. In addition, the toe grips are lasting months longer than expected. I have recommended them to all of my friends/acquaintances with dogs and slippery floors. Toe grips are a game-changer for Gabby. Thanks to Team Toe Grips for a wonderful product that performs as promised at a reasonable price.

Happy beyond belief

My senior collie has always struggled with our laminate wood floors, but after a dental cleaning with anesthesia, he couldn't walk on our floors at all. He had muscle weakness in his hind legs & kept falling with his hind legs splayed, and would lay there and whine. I was desperate to find something to help him. I had to lock him in our carpeted bedroom while we were gone. The muscle weakness went away, but his fear of slipping & falling did not. After researching, I found these toe grips, & ordered them immediately. They came very quickly, & right after I put them on, and coaxed him to walk around the house, he instantly realized that he had grip. He is gradually learning to trust that he won't slip. But he doesn't have to lay on rugs anymore, he can lay on the cooler floor & get up without slipping. These toe grips are amazing! I bought 2 different sizes because I had a hard time measuring his toenails. I'm hoping I can exchange the smaller size for another bag of the ones he's wearing. because I'm sold on them. Today I took him to the vet for a dental checkup following the cleaning, & they were asking what was on his toes. I told them all about the toe grips, & recommended that they get some for their clinic. They were very interested. Thank you so much!

14 Year Old Mix

Our sweet Lola was having a tough time in S. FL with the tile floors. She is about 14 years old and our vet recommended these. They have made a huge difference, she was not able to get her footing and was falling, but that is not happening as much anymore. I have found them easy to put on and replace when some come off. I am very thankful for this product!


Very surprised by how well these work. They seem like such a simple "fix" that you wouldn't expect them to actually work but they do. We have a dog that is getting arthritis in his back legs and just recently moved into a house with hardwood floors and he was having trouble with the stairs. He slipped while going down the stairs and fell to the bottom of the stairs on at least two occasions, and I knew we had to do something so that he didn't seriously injure himself. We got the ToeGrips and had to super glue them on because my dog is still pretty active despite his arthritis and will go exploring around my parent's ranch during the week. He was not a fan of us putting them on but ever since he has had them on it has made a huge difference. I no longer have to worry about him going down the stairs and just his overall movement seems much better. I highly recommend these to anybody with a senior dog that has trouble with gripping wood floors or similarly smooth surfaces. The only issue we've had is that a few of the grips have fallen off since we've put them on even with the super glue, but that is probably user error more than product malfunction. Overall though they are amazing and an easy 5/5 star rating.
