Your dog WILL WEAR PawZ boots. Whether it’s because there are no zippers or straps, or because there is no padding, dogs accept wearing PawZ dog boots even when they won’t wear other brands. Feeling the ground through the boot is what gives your dog that needed sense of security.
They gently hug your dog’s paws like a sock, and stay there until you’re ready to take them off.
PawZ are waterproof. No other boot protects against liquid chloride and other liquid hazards.
Like a sock, PawZ moves with your dog, allowing for full paw motion and maximum comfort. Without padding or sole, PawZ allows your dog to feel the ground, providing the needed sense of security not possible with a typical dog boot. This is the main reason why dogs that won’t wear dog boots will wear PawZ.

Your best friend’s health and safety is important to us. That why we got into this business in the first place. So there are a few things we think you should know in order to experience success maintaining paw health with PawZ Dog Boots. PawZ Dog Boots are waterproof. Since water can’t get in, it also can’t get out. Since your dog sweats through the paw, you will often find the paw moist after removing the boot. For this reason, do not leave the boots on for an extended period of time. Please remove when your dog is resting or inactive. Dogs should be supervised while wearing boots. If PawZ are being used with a medical bandage, please be sure to purchase a larger size than usual to accommodate the increased diameter of the leg and surgical bandage. Please be extra diligent if you or your dog has an existing infection and/or circulation problems, as extended use can exacerbate these conditions.
