Place front paw on a blank paper, standing with full weight. Make one mark at the "heel" by aligning your pen straight down the back of the leg, and one mark at the longest toe nail. Measure the distance between the two markings.
For Mud Monsters and Snow Mushers only - size the front paw and choose one size smaller for the back paws.
Step 2: Match to our sizing chart
Choose the smallest size which fits dogs entire paw, including toe nails.
Step 3: Putting boots on dogs
Stand over your dog with dog between your legs
Slide boot over the paw
Ensure boot is all the way on
Fasten boots Securely
Tug the end of the boot
If boot slips down it may be too large or fastened too loosely
If boot stay in place, it is the correct size and fastened correctly
Boots that are too large may slip off or wear prematurely!
A snug fit is best.
The strap of the boot should fall at the narrow spot on the leg - just above the dew claw - at the ankle of the front legs.
Breed examples are approximate guides only as paw sizes are not consistent within breeds.
