FITTING YOUR DOG BOOTS

Here are a series of pictures showing how to fit the boots. You may need an assistant the first few times, and the assistant should give the dog treats if necessary to distract it and stop it from moving

Here is Deise to show you how

FRONT PAWS

Place the dogs paw/leg in the boot and pull up like a mitten

DOG'S PAW SHOULD GO RIGHT TO THE END. If it doesn't it's too small.

STRAP POSITIONS ARE:

Just above paw
Just below stopper pad (the pad on the leg)
Just above wrist (first joint up the leg)

Use any two of the above.Stick double-sided end of velcro to opposing black strip, and wrap the velcro round the leg.
Strap tightly.

 

CHECK SIZE

Boot should look snug on the paw.

Pinch leather at side of the paw to check this.

Large dogs - no more than 1/4 inch; 1 cm pinch
Small dogs - no more than 1/8 inch; 0.5 cm pinch

CHECK FIT

Walk dog forwards.

If boot rotates, it is too big
If toe of boot goes floppy, check strap positions first and also repeat check of size.
