Dog's paws are, in structure, more like our hands than our feet and full flexion must be allowed both up and down at the toes
Dogs can work and play in our boots with full mobility.
We need the following measurement for your dog:
Width of paw at widest point This is best done by drawing round the paw on a piece of paper, and then measuring straight across at the widest point
If your dog has a dressing or cast Circumference of bandage at largest point Circumference of bandage at paw (if this isn't the largest point)
If your dog drags his paws Please tell us if this is front or back paws Distance from tip of claws to any damage on top, side and bottom of paws
For the main body of the boot, we selected a waterproof breathable fabric made of tough textured nylon and polyurethane, also used in the manufacture of jackets for a European police force. The fabric will retain its waterproof qualities even after abrasion and is very durable. We reduced the number of connective seams to a minimum, so as to limit potential stress points in the boot. For the sole and toe cap we chose hide. Not just any old piece of leather, but carefully dressed cow hide which means that it is supple yet strong To prevent wear from the front claws of the dog's paws we incorporated a hide toe-cap, which has the additional benefit of ensuring the boot stays correctly in position, without twisting round, on the dog's foot. Finally we use a special waterproof tape to seal the seams for our waterproof range, thus making the boots fully waterproof. Pro-Active Paws boots are washable and re-useable and are fitted according to the width of the dog's foot. They are adjustable to your individual dog's height of leg so that a completely comfortable fit can easily be attained.
