Benefits of ToeGrips® for Dogs

Dogs use their toenails for traction. But hard nails can't grip slippery floors.
Toe grippers for dogs are the natural solution because they:

  • Provide instant paw traction for dogs on hard-surface flooring
  • Don't require gluing to your dog's nails
  • Are made for indoor/outdoor use
  • Can be worn all the time
  • Only need to be replaced every one to three months

If your senior dog is slipping on hard floors, you may be feeling helpless. But now, there's an easy solution to help stop your dog from slipping on floors once and for all: ToeGrips, the original dog nail grips.

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.

Amazing improvement! 😍

Our dog, Nomee, a little 8 pound black Brussels Griffon, has multiple serious medical problems. She’s diabetic, went blind in June and has glaucoma. She also has EPI and luxating patellas, which causes her pain in her little knees. We have all hardwood floors and with the pain in her knees and being uncertain since she can’t see anymore, she was barely walking at all. Now that she has ToeGrips to help keep her from slipping she has her confidence back and is walking SO much more and better. Sure, she still has pain in her knees, but she’s using her legs again, which will help strengthen her muscles and hopefully help the arthritis in her knees. We are absolutely amazed at how much better she’s getting around. Thank you SO much for this wonderful product!!! ❤️😍🐾

Kenzie’s Human
Quality of Life

We have a 13 yr old German Shepherd mix who has been in decline with mobility this past year. We have gone ALL IN to give her the greatest quality of life she deserves (and we can afford.). I spent countless hours scouring the internet for “all the things” that could help our sweet old girl and it all began with Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips. To my surprise and relief they were a tremendous help with traction on our wood/tile floors. She has been able to gain strength and confidence walking around the house again. While she will never be the spry girl she once was, she no longer hesitates going after food the kids drop or asserting who’s boss with the kitten! These toe grips are super easy to use and have beyond exceeded my expectations, as has this company’s customer support! Teri’s compassionate, detailed, and timely response to an inquiry I made was absolutely first class and something you don’t encounter very often these days!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I will be a Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips advocate for life because of my experience with the product and people of this great company!

Our dog 🍑 Peach had numerous surgeries on her rear leg because of an avalanche of snow and ice that had buried her. She is 12 years old, abd has been an active border collie. The surgeries in combination with vinyl flooring kept her on the ground. After her last surgery, I purchased the toe grips. I know it sounds silly.... but I had no idea how much a dog use their nails for balance. It took a few days, but she slowly started standing up with more confidence. I had tried other pad type grips, booties with rubber on the bottom, but they flopped around too much. I am so happy that we tried the toe grips Dr. Buzby has come up with. They make all the difference!!!! And they stay on!!! Peach is so active now, that I have to check the grips because they can slid up (not off). So I want them to be in the most optimal position. They are totally worth the price. Thank You Dr, Buzby for 'thinking outside the box'!!!

Henry has freedom

After dealing with rug runners all around the house for several years, I had to come up with some kind of solution because we moved to a new home in South Carolina and Henry wasn’t able to walk on the floors at all. I found Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips online and a vet nearby that would put them on Henry. Within 15 to 20 minutes of bringing him home after the Toe Grips he was exploring further and further in the house on his own.

My husband and I have a 13 and a half year old, 62 lbs boxer mix. He has arthritis in his joints and we're constantly taking him to the vet to have his nails trimmed in hopes it will help him from sliding around the house on the floors. However, trimming the nails wasn't cutting it. We saw these toe grips on social media and were skeptical but thought we'd give it a try. We were surprised that they actually work. We opted not to glue them on and a few have come off but they are very simple to put on. They've really helped him not slip and slide on the floor which in turn is helping his back legs not slide out from underneath him. We will be purchasing them again in the future.
