While you may not be willing to take your dog for a walk during a rainstorm, your anxious friend is going to be ready to go as soon as the rain stops. But what do you do when the grass is wet and there are puddles everywhere, not to mention the mud? Since steering your dog around these obstacles is not always easy to do, why not avoid the issue entirely by dressing him in rain boots? Better to have muddy boots than muddy paws.
Why does your dog need rain boots?
As every dog owner knows, rain + dog = mess. An effective set of dog rain boots is made of waterproof fabric that is breathable and also long lasting. Sometimes, dog boots for rain are more for your benefit than the dog’s, but rain dog boots are also beneficial for:
Guarding your dog’s feet from chemical compounds and bug sprays which could surface whenever it rains
Providing grip for stepping on slick surfaces
Keeping your dog’s paws dry helps avoid that icky wet paw smell

There are several methods you can use to measure your dog's paw and we highlighted the easiest and most accurate method below. Please
keep in mind that you will need to measure the entire part of the paw
that touches the floor - from the back paw pad to the edge of the
toenail. You will also want to be sure your dog's nails are trimmed to
ensure the most comfortable fit. It is best to measure your dog's paws
while your dog is standing so the paw is completely splayed. When your
dog is standing you will get a wider measurement (more accurate) than
when your dog is laying or sitting.
Place your dog's paw on a blank piece of paper and mark the front & back of the paw (include toenail) for length measurement. Measure the distance between the lines. Do the same on the left and right sides of the paw for width measurement. Do not trace the paw.
Size does matter. Incorrectly sized dog boots will not be comfortable or
perform well. We have a very simple 2 step sizing process. *Every
product page on the website has a specific size chart corresponding to
that particular dog shoe.* Most product pages also include a chart your
dog can stand to help you pick the right size. Please set ACTUAL SIZE or
100% setting for your printer. The actual dimensions the paw prints
should measure are listed on the images. It is necessary to measure the
paper to make sure it printed accurately. If your dog's shoe size falls
in between two different sizes, choose the larger of the two to be sure
the boots aren't too tight or uncomfortable.
