Watch our video to see how non-slip ToeGrips provide instant traction for slipping dogs!
“Even today, the simplicity of the ToeGrips design gives me goosebumps. Dogs use their nails for traction. They flex their paws and engage their nails like soccer cleats digging into the ground. Instead of shutting down a dog’s natural gripping mechanism, like dog socks and boots do, ToeGrips make it work better. Hard nails can’t grip hard floors. ToeGrips grab the floor, providing instant traction to help your senior or special needs dog walk without slipping.” -Julie Buzby, DVM
If your dog is slipping on floors from age, injury, surgery, or disability, we can help! Dogs have the natural ability to walk on any surface. Slipping dogs just need a little help on hardwood or tile floors. ToeGrips create a “Grip Zone” where the toenail meets the floor to provide traction with each step.

"He is so much more confident, standing taller and getting around so much better."
…I had an 18 yr old Jack Russell Terrier named Harley who came in yesterday sporting ToeGrips that his family vet put on him. I have been treating him with acupuncture. He is really weak in his rear limbs and boy what a difference the ToeGrips have made!! He is so much more confident, standing taller and getting around so much better. I’m so glad that you have this product to offer us!
"The ToeGrips have made all the difference in the world!"
I wanted to tell you how much of a difference ToeGrips have made for our two 13-year-old dogs. Slater, our Catahoula Leopard dog, had surgery on both knees when he was a young boy, and as he got older, walking became more and more of a chore. He has lost most of the strength in his back legs, and so has a very difficult time walking on surfaces that he can’t get a grip on. Our vet, Dr. Donna Shipley, of The Animal Medical Center of Labelle” recommended I try Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips shortly after she learned about them, and I ordered them the same day. They arrived only a few days later, and Slater has worn them ever since (I believe that’s going on two years). The ToeGrips have made all the difference in the world! He can now walk across linoleum, hardwood floors . . . anything!
"Paddington regained confidence and mobility!"
If you would have walked into my home several months ago, you would have thought it was a showroom for throw rugs! My dog, Paddington Bear, a 110 pound South Russian Sheepdog, had great difficulty walking on the hardwood floors due to advanced arthritis in his back legs. Before the Toe Grips came to my attention while searching the internet for solutions, he would often “wipe-out” while going from room to room. I tried everything else my vet suggested, so why not give this a shot? The information and short tutorial videos on the website were exactly what I needed to get started! I measured the circumference of his nails, then placed the order. Within days, I received the Toe Grips and proceeded to apply them with the guidance of another website video. All very simple!! I started picking up the throw rugs, one by one. He could easily navigate the hardwood floors without slipping! He regained confidence and mobility!
"If I could be a saleswoman for your company, I would travel the world singing of the greatness of this product."
I wanted to thank you for such an amazing product. I have a 13 year old rottie who has cancer that we are trying to make comfortable until he tells us it’s his time. He was falling 5-6 times a day on our hardwoods, and it was seriously breaking my heart. I work at an animal hospital and had another client recommend your product that was offered to her through her holistic acupuncturist. I thought, “well this couldn’t hurt to try” I’m so glad that I did. He is a different dog now. He is so confident, and knows he’s not going to fall. He actually comes running now to get his breakfast and dinner, and greets me at the door with his bone every night when i come home from work. He hasn’t done that in months...

"ToeGrips are truly a breakthrough for canine geriatric medicine."
As veterinary professionals and dog lovers, we have all come to recognize how fear can literally ruin a dog’s life. In young dogs, we have the ability to modify or modulate behavior through training or environment, or sometimes through medications. But what about our older dogs? What about our dogs that are limited by physical disabilities or cognitive issues or sensory deficits? Can you teach an old dog new tricks? People who train horses always say the same thing- horses think on their feet. This means that if you want to train a horse, do so while it is engaged in movement. I would say that if you want to teach an old dog new tricks, help it to engage in movement. ToeGrips do this. ToeGrips are truly a breakthrough for canine geriatric medicine.
"Just wanted to tell you how much we love the toe grips."
I have a 17 year old border collie named Sue. She is a retired sheep dog and agility dog and due to her age she is quite frail. Her mind is still fine and she has lots of things she wants to do. Now thanks to the toe grips she is now secure enough in her footing to happily and comfortably negotiate my hardwood and linoleum floors. Her quality of life is so much better! Thank you!

"…nothing has really worked until today when his ‘ToeGrips’ arrived."
My dog Scooter has been diagnosed with a brain tumor and he’s slowly declining. One of the problems we’ve encountered is his decreasing strength and increasing tendency to slip and fall on non-carpeted surfaces. I’ve tried a lot of different things to help, but nothing has really worked until today when his “ToeGrips” arrived. I put them on him and he’s navigating the tile without falling – it’s really pretty amazing. I am hopeful that they will increase Scoot’s quality of life in the time we have left. As an aside, your customer service was awesome. Thanks so much!
"The toe grips are a small doggie miracle..."
I just wanted to send a quick thank you note. I have had Sam my 14 year old rescue for 6 months now and have tried everything to keep this old boy from sliding on my wood laminate. I have so many rugs down you can’t see the floor anymore. The toe grips are a small doggie miracle for this severely arthritic dog. Now that he is not sliding his back leg pain has decreased, he has much more strength in his hind legs at the end of the day, and he is clearly more comfortable. I can’t thank you enough!
"The change was instant."
I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for Timber! The change was instant. At 13, we were prepared to just accept the fact that he is getting older and he just cannot walk like he used to. We noticed he was having trouble just 2 weeks ago, and literally the next day I saw your ad on facebook. It was as if God sent you to help Timber. And you did!
Timber says ... THANK YOU!

"ToeGrips gives her the extra stability and support to allow her to confidently move wherever she wants to go."
I have a 4 year old yorkie named Triscuit. Though quite young she has always had special needs. Her ability to walk has recently worsened due to a luxating patella in now both her hind legs. Toe grips gives her the extra stability and support to allow her to confidently move wherever she wants to go. Previously she slid all over the hardwood and if she fell and hit her head too hard or just the wrong way she would seizure. Now we both feel more comfortable with her going anywhere and everywhere without fear of injury. Thank you for this genius idea!
"We were extremely grateful to discover Toe Grips as part of our solution."
Let me start by saying this product will help keep your pets safe. We have a senior dog (now 14ish) and hardwood floors. Several years ago in Wrigley’s (then 12ish) enthusiasm for someone at our front door he dashed that way and he slipped his back legs splaying out. He was in obvious pain and ended up having caused a hairline fracture in his sacrum. Older dog, older bones. We were extremely grateful to discover Toe Grips as part of our solution. It allowed Wrig to have traction on whatever surface he was on but especially smooth and potentially slippery ones. We have kept the toe grips on him ever since. He is “Mr. Toe Grips” and will be for the rest of his life.
"She went from lethargic to zippy in a nanosecond!"
My sister-in-law works for the state’s largest veterinary hospital. I laughed when she brought your ToeGrips to our home. As a man, this is difficult to say, but after we put the ToeGrips on our 14 year old Schnauzer, Heidi…. I cried. She went from lethargic to zippy in a nanosecond! She dances and prances like the days of old! I know for a fact that the ToeGrips will give her a better quality of life and in turn it allows me to enjoy my best friend and seeing her happy.

"I am a veterinarian and this is my first time using Toe grips."
Just placed Dr. Buzby’s toe grips on my 16 year old girl today. She normally can barely walk on my bedroom floor without slipping. Look at her go with her toe grips on! Thank you!!!...I will be recommending them to my clients without hesitation as I have seen such incredible, immediate results with my senior dog. I can’t thank you enough.

"ToeGrips provide traction and confidence on well-worn flagstone floors!"
I just wanted to tell you that I had my first customer ring me today absolutely delighted with the ToeGrips for their elderly Labrador. They only received them yesterday, fitted them without any problems, and watched in amazement as their old girl confidently negotiated the flagstone floors in their very old house. Apparently they had only recently moved there, and were desperate to find something to help her—their flag stones have been well polished over the centuries and she was slipping and sliding all over the place. So with all the different feet that have traversed across those stones in the last couple of hundred years, there is now one very happy, STABLE, little Labrador living there!
"As soon as I put ToeGrips on him he was back to normal!"
My German Shepherd, Astro has hip dysplasia and recently started slipping on our wood floors. It broke my heart watching him repeatedly slip and fall. As soon as I put ToeGrips on him he was back to normal! I can’t thank you enough for giving Astro the confidence he needed to walk again! I will be a repeated customer and have been spreading the word on your amazing product!
