How to select the right size for your dog:

ToeGrips are sized based on nail circumference, not dog size. Measuring the nails is an important, one-time step. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may quickly fall off or migrate up the nail, causing harm. Follow these instructions to learn how to measure your dog’s nails.


Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the midshaft of the toenail.

Step 2: Hold the floss, wrapped around the nail circumference, with one hand.

Step 3: Use a Sharpie to mark across both pieces of floss. This will generate two points.

Step 4: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.

Step 5: Repeat for all weight-bearing nails on one front and one back paw.

Step 6: Based on the measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart to select the proper size. Sometimes a dog will require a combination of two sizes.

    Thank you thank you. These have immeasurably increased the quality and longevity of life for my 9.5 year old German Shepherd who has a neurological problem that affects the mobility of his back legs. The results were immediate. Thank you again!

    A big thank you to Toe Grips for providing mobility to my senior cocker spaniel in the last few months of her life. She was having a lot of difficulty with our tile and wood floors and these helped her a lot. Would highly recommend for senior dogs. I have two other dogs and will definitely order again if any problems arise.

    These little things work great!! I am so very pleased with the results. My little dachshund, Maggie is 14 and in her old age it has gotten harder for her to walk on my hardwood floors. I heard of ToeGrips before, but never considered them. Recently, Maggie would just be standing still and her legs would just slip out from under her. After seeing this a couple times and hearing a rave review at work, I decided to buy them. I’m so glad I did. Maggie has never been an active dog, but when she was younger she would run here and there from time to time. However as she got older she never did that. I figured it was just because she was getting old. Well today when I put on the toe grips, we went to the kitchen to get a treat and she ran!!! I have not seen my dog run like that in at least three years. These are a necessity to senior dogs. You will not regret your purchase. Maggie and I are very thankful!!

    When I was still a vet student, the neurologists recommended ToeGrips to several of our patients with weakness or gait problems. So naturally, when my own poor dog had weakness after her second disc surgery, we decided to give ToeGrips a try. The ToeGrips allow her a steadiness on my slick floors, and also help her get a better grip on carpet as well. She’s now her happy, goofy self again! Thanks Dr. Buzby and ToeGrips!

    Our 3.5 year old English Mastiff, Aries, suddenly had several seizures a couple weeks ago. She fell multiple times that day and has been barely able to walk since. All attempts to get up and down have resulted in falls.

    Consequently, we needed to place gait belts around her to help her walk. At 220lb, we had considered putting her down because we felt she was suffering.

    We got the 3XL nail grips and put them on. Aries was immediately able to walk again without slipping or falling. While she is slow, she is significantly better than before and can even manage to take care of her toileting without gait belts.

    We have found that she loses one or two around the house each day but they are simple enough to soak and reapply. Aries doesn’t seem to notice them and they don’t ride up at all. All in all, these have been a Godsend and have allowed us to keep our girl going.

    Not much of a reviewer but this product deserves all it can get! My elderly Fiona, once an active Border Collie, has been physically declining over the last year and just recently she was having trouble keeping her footing on my hardwood and tile floors!

    I trimmed the hair away from her pads and it made no difference. Tried booties….nope…they were off in 2 minutes. Then I found ToeGrips. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    These things work like a charm and she doesn’t even know they’re on her feet (hence they have stayed on). Where she was slipping and face-planting on the floors and then unable to get up she now gets around just like she was before. And the best part is that she seems to have come out of her bit of depression that had settled in.

    Just buy these. They work. They work really great.

    Hi everyone…so I read all the reviews before I bought the grips and often times we don’t know if the reviews are personal opinions or if they are truly genuine. I decided to give the grips a try. I rescued a beautiful yellow lab 1.5 yrs ago. She had been used as a breeder, she obviously had a hip injury at some point that hadn’t been fixed. She was a little over 11 yrs old at that point. After being on our home for several short weeks, she came alive! She was interacting, playing, trusting and it was the most beautiful site. Over the last 3 months I have noticed that she had been having more trouble getting her legs underneath her to get up from the hardwood floors…it was heart breaking. I feared that another injury was around the corner. That’s when I ordered the grips. She wasn’t sure at first about me putting them on but she trusts me…once they were on, she didn’t bother with them again. More importantly, she is able to get up with ease making the likelihood of an injury much less. She has had them on now for 1 week and all are still in place. So, the reviews are true…these grips are making my girl’s retirement quite a bit easier. Thx.

    My old Golden had a history of ACL surgery on both rear legs when she was younger. Over the years, the legs became weaker. She experienced a problem with one of her front legs, and when she weight shifted to her rear legs, they became noticeably weaker very quickly. I already had throw rugs covering every solid surface floor in the house so she could get to her feet and keep her footing. They helped, but not enough. She slipped on the driveway, on the sidewalk — anywhere there was a solid surface. The more she lost her footing, the more unsure of herself she became on any surface.

    I found these toe grips online when I was searching for a solution for slipping feet. It was challenging measuring her toenails because she wouldn’t cooperate. If Dr. Buzby’s figures out a way to do that more easily, it would be really helpful. The first set I ordered were way too tight. I ordered a larger size and put them only on her rear feet. She had no trouble getting up. When she walked across surfaces where her feet usually slipped and she realized they weren’t going to, you could see her relax. Within a short time, she got better control of the muscles in her rear legs, and was no longer slipping.

    For effectiveness, I’d give these toe grips 10 stars. For the cumbersome toenail measuring process, I’d give it 3 stars. For staying on the toenails, I’d give it 4 stars. They are expensive for what you get, but they actually work, so it was worth it.

    The second set fit perfectly, but the act of walking shifts them around and they work their way off over time. One toenail must have been smaller than the others because that grip kept migrating up the nail and I’d catch my dog biting at it because it had become uncomfortable. The one big plus for the grips being such bright colors is that you can easily spot them when they work their way off.

    They probably added a few months to my dog’s life, and I’m grateful for that. I liked them so much that I gave the unused package and the leftover grips from the package I did use to my vet. She was impressed at how well they worked. Thank you Dr. Buzby’s for this easy solution to a common problem in older dogs.

    I have researched and bought many products for my Boxers Hip Dysplasia, Toe Grips are by far the best. I am having a lil trouble with them staying on because of my dogs paw turning under . They have been more than helpful in trying to help me in size,and as a last resort Super Glue. I will continue just because I saw my Boxer run and jump for the first time in months even briefly. The customer service is far beyond anything I could of expected. There is no delays. Thanks to them I might have my dog back without wearing those uncomfortable Boots. I sat try them give them a chance, you won’t be sorry! I have no doubts the rating would be prefect for many Dogs and mine very soon.

    Ollie, the 14 3/4 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, has had great success with his Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips. The secret is in putting them on at the right angle on the nail. Ollie is steady on the wood and tile floors now. He even tried running on the wood floor today!

    This review is less about the product and more about the customer service. So far (about a weeks time) the product seems to be having the intended effect on my old pup. But I wanted to write this note thanking Denise and her team for being so receptive and proactive in dealing with me as a customer. They truly do care about each dog that their product is intended to help. 5 stars all around!

    Dear Dr. Buzby,

    My name is Nana. I’m a retired Champion Frisbee Dog and a Therapy dog. I am 16 years old and still going strong. I have trouble getting up with the arthritis and the hardwood floors in our home. My mom did her homework and decided that ToeGrips would be something to try.
    I’ve had them on for about five hours and already I get up more knowing that I wont need to tense my legs and pray not to slip and fall down.

    Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Nitro Nana
    Border Collie

    After my 7 year old 90 lb berner had 2 cruciate ligament surgeries, she continued to have difficulty walking. Worse, she could no longer get herself up off of wood or slate floors. It was disturbing watching her struggle and at times, cry. I did a lot of research looking for a solution. Other products seemed impractical, short term, and without success. I came upon Dr. Buzby’s toe grips. It seemed logical and not intrusive or a problem keeping on.
    We are so pleased with the results. Dr. Buzby’s video made it easy to measure apply. She no longer struggles or cries when getting off the floor.

    Further Dr. Buzby went above and beyond in helping us fit our berner. Thank you so much Dr. Buzby for invented and getting to market, toe grips.

    I want to thank you for developing these toes grips. I have hardwood floors and my Cavalier King Charles, Ash, was slipping at times. He also has Syringomyelia and seems to be having some clumsiness in his back legs. He’s like a new dog, now. He walks and jumps with ease and confidence. Ash and I thank you! With his gremlin like hairy feet, I can’t even see them.

    KC is 1n 11 year old Cavalier with arthritis. The toe grips are a life saver. KC is so much happier – actually acts like a puppy again. We tried stick on pads with very little success – they fall off after one day. He was having a very hard time walking on our tile floors. Now he has very little problems. Would recommend these to everyone.

    I don’t even know where to begin on how pleased we are with the toe grips. The day they arrived, Brody stepped off the bed and couldn’t gain any traction to get him self back up on the hard woods. It’s the worst thing to watch. I got him to lay down and after about 20 minutes he was wearing his new toe grips. He was a bit hesitant to stand up at first as he usually runs as quickly as he can to build up momentum in order to get from one rug to another. He stood up on his first try on the wood floor. Within minutes he realized he was able to grip and has since been around us walking around the house constantly. He doesn’t think twice about being on the hard woods now. It’s unreal the progress we’ve seen in a matter of one week! He typically stays in his room on the bed most of the day, but since we put the toe grips on, he is on the move constantly. I’ve had Brody for almost 11 years now and this is the most progress he’s shown since he began showing signs of degenerative hip disorder years ago. It brought tears to my eyes when he began confidently walking around, with no problems. I will be a lifetime customer and will advocate your product anytime the chance presents itself. Thank you for changing mine and Brody’s lives for the better. I will forever be grateful and I know he will be too.

    It has been a little over 6 weeks since Tom has been wearing the toe grips. I am noticing that he is standing and walking more upright on his feet. He is 12 and weak in the rear, however, I feel they are helping him with his balance overall.

    Got Wednesday’s (5 1/2-year-old tripawd) toe grips in the mail yesterday, they are amazing. She can walk on the linoleum without slipping and sliding all over the place. And she hasn’t tried to take them off, *yeah*, plus they are easy to get on and off.

    My nineteen years young princess Sabrinnah is getting a grip on life once again thanks to the Toe Grips! I just can’t thank you enough. The shipping was fast and the communication amazing. Sabrinnah is a border collie lab mix, in other words she’s a mutt, lol. But, she’s my princess and priceless in my eyes. Give them a try. Don’t get discouraged if one fall off here or there, they’ll eventually stay. They’re worth every penny. God bless you all for what you’re doing for our four legged furr babies with tails!

    My lovely Lady is a rescue Dalmatian. Poor soul came to me 7 years ago, after she was pulled out of a puppy mill in Gainesville, New York. She chose me. She’s been a wonderful dog, but she’s had her challenges. Poor thing was full of every parasite in the book. Cleared those. Surgery for mammary cancers from overbreeding. Check. She needed extensive dental surgery to fix teeth she’d ruined chewing on her cage. Done: 13 extractions and removal of a malignancy in her jaw bone. Then she got idiopathic vestibular disease last year. She’s a fighter and she overcame it. She and I loved our daily runs together, she got her balance back and we kept on running. But then old age quickly set in. Suddenly, she could get up. She couldn’t eat without her legs splaying underneath her. She lost weight and muscle tone. She became quiet and retiring because she was nervous on the slippery floors. She stopped greeting me at the door when I came home because she didn’t want to get up. Normally a clean dog, she started having accidents wherever she was because she wasn’t confident to get up and go out. When I boarded her at her kennel two months ago, they asked if she had lost the function of her hind end. I said, “no, she just needs you to lift her to her feet. She can’t get to her feet by herself any more.” I was so sad for her – I could see in her mind she was still the young girl I rescued from Gainesville and she couldn’t understand her body betraying her. It came so fast.

    I heard about toegrips on Facebook, and so I ordered some. After I put them on and she realized she wasn’t sliding any more. She got a spring in her step right away. Now her legs stay still while she’s eating/drinking. It’s still a challenge, but she can actually pull herself to her own feet on a hardwood or ceramic floor now. This gives her some independence and confidence. She is happier now. Her tail is wagging. When I come home, she even gets to her feet and greets me at the door. Without her anxiety, she’s even cleaner in the house, and I can leave her uncrated overnight again. She is happier, I am happier.

    The toegrips only stay on with friction, so a few will come off every day. This is a problem because in 3 days, they might have all come off. A drop of Krazy Glue will secure the toegrips, so you don’t have the daily fall-offs. Just wear some disposable gloves. Put your toegrips in rubbing alcohol in the usual way. Take them out of the rubbing alcohol then drop a bead of krazy glue in the centre of the toegrip. Then apply it the same way you normally would. When you’re done, throw away your disposable gloves.

    I bought a couple of spare sets of toe-grips – it’s cheaper than a vet visit. It’s cheaper than a bottle of analgesic.

    The toe grips are awesome. Madison(12) has allot of difficulty getting up and walking on the slick surfaces in this house. The toe grips were a breeze to place on her nails. I have been amazed that Madison has left the toe grips in place because she will chew on her nails at times. Madison’s confidence has been boosted by the toe grips. I should have purchased the toe grips much sooner.

    I have been using toe grips for about 3 months and they work perfectly! I have to put a little super glue in them as my 13 yr old yellow lab has degenerative myelopathy and they tend to slide off without it. He no longer slips or splays out on the hard wood floors. Getting ready to order my third set and so happy they work so well!! Buddy says thank you for this product!!

    Buddy is a six year old Lab/Terrier mix. My wife and I adopted him from a local SPCA in upstate New York when he was fifteen weeks old. He IS our only child.

    He’s very smart (potty trained in a week!) and affectionate, and until a month ago had only known carpeted floors. Oh, he’s also spoiled rotted.

    We recently moved to North Carolina and our new home has hardwood floors. The poor guy looked like a baby deer on ice. It’s gotten so bad that he looks at the floor with trepidation and has strained his front legs and needed to visit our vet. The great staff at the Youngsville Animal Hospital recommended Dr. Buzby’s toe grips.

    We ordered three sets (to make certain that he had the right size, large fits him best) and applied them today. The results were visible almost immediately! He has more confidence and appears much happier.

    We would like to thank you for providing a wonderful product and wish you much success.

    Here is Buddy. And even though he has more stability, he still prefers the lap of luxury.

    We are calling this product totally successful for Laila Ali. As a tripod with her back leg as an FHO, walking on hardwoods and slick floors, a major challenge she balked, slipped and slid. We did have to use crazy glue front and back, because anyone that knows Laila knows she’s a bit of a wild child! Dad and I were most impressed with turns, she’d wipe out and you never knew which direction that paw would be facing prior to Toe Grips. Her tripod brother will be 10 this year, navigates much better than her and has full use of his back leg, but I feel for longevity sake, hip safety, and the occasion he does slip, he’d benefit from going no slip as well. Thank you Dr Buzby for an amazing product, and for the tube of glue, we used it all doing all toes. And everyone who knows Laila I know is asking, is she trying to pull them off? Nope! She’s totally ignored them. No more throw rugs covering every inch of hardswoods! Yay! Actions speak louder than words, so take a look at
    https://m.facebook.com/TripawdLailaAli/ in action. Remember now, no back hip joint on that remaining leg!

    My Australian Shepherd Kobe will be 14 years in April. He’s got arthritis in his joints and some muscle atrophy in his hind legs and we have Pergo floors. Watching him struggle to get up was so heartbreaking for us and so frustrating for him. I knew there was no way that he would wear any type of sock or boot and carpeting the house was out of the question since that is not in the budget, so I kept searching the Internet for an alternative and came across Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips. Yay! I wasn’t sure what size to buy so I ended up taking Kobe to a local vet who came up in my search for the ToeGrips who would do the trimming of nails and determine the sizing. This was in December. Kobe is just now at the point where he will need them to be replaced as we notice he is losing traction, and since we now know his size we can get them directly from Dr. Buzby and my husband can keep his nails trimmed. I thank God for Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips because it’s given my dog his confidence back and the ability to get up on his own. If you’ve purchased the Grips and they’re falling off I’m sure that you’ve purchased the wrong size. In all this time I’ve only had to replace two, (the pack comes with 4 extra grips) and that’s been fairly recently. I love what Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips have done for my boy. Thank you!

    I love the toe grips and the wonderful customer service. They’ve given my dog much more traction on our floors! Dr. Julie and her workers have been a great help in helping me make sure I have the toe grips on properly and in troubleshooting what was wrong when I first put them on and had difficulty.

    I highly recommend watching the GREAT videos before putting on the toe grips. They’re wonderful!

    I recommend these grips to anyone who’s dog is having traction issues. No matter their age, I think these easy to use grips are well worth it to give them more comfort and fewer falls in their lives.

    My dog is much happier and active indoors with her grips! If your dog has lots of paw hair like mine, I recommend keeping their paw hair short to ensure good contact between the grips and the floor.

    Wonderful product!

    I want to let you know that this is the best invention ever for dogs! Our 13 year old dog ‘Gotti Bear’ would not walk across the hardwood floors in our home which presented a huge problem. We had scattered throw rugs all over the house so he wouldn’t slip and hurt himself. We took him to the vet last week and they put the toe grips on his back paws and we immediately saw a difference. His confidence soared and he can now safely walk on the floors. Thank you for this incredible product

    My holistic vet, Dr. Nancy Bozeman located in Kennedale, TX introduced me to Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for my 4 year old Catahoula. I was told by a traditional vet my dog needed double knee surgeries. In addition to alternative medicine I feel the ToeGrips had a major part of my dogs healing as she did not have to struggle to get up. I would not just recommend the use of ToeGrips for older dogs but in many other situations as well. We still get our pedicures monthly and will continue to forever. My dog is now 6 years old. Thank you for developing this product!

    Until we lost Mika earlier this month (at well over age 16) her ToeGrips made a big difference for her being able to get around on hardwood floors in particular. Right up to the end, she wore them on her front paw claws, though we eventually had to move to grip socks and booties on the back (but only for the last month or so). The only issue I ran into was having the ToeGrips come off and go missing. But I didn’t want them to be too hard to put on or take off, so had to live with the consequences. Thanks!

    Our 12 year old lab has been falling a lot on our laminate flooring (we just moved in late October ). We were using runners etc to try to help. She insisted on laying on the laminate because it’s cooler.
    We read about these toe grips, bought some, put them on. We waited 24 hrs to see how she did with them. All I can say is:
    OMG THESE ARE FANTASTIC!
    Thank you Dr. Buzby.

    I am so impressed by the level of service I received. After placing my order I received an email stating they were sending the size I ordered plus a set one size larger because of concerns about my dogs size because of his breed. The email also had suggestions to make sure that their product was as comfortable and effective as possible for my baby. I would recommend everyone give them a try!

    I bought these to help my almost 18 year old doxie. He has trouble standing straight and splays out while eating. He loses his footing on the wood floors as well. I tried these out, and was sent two sizes to check which would fit Dudley better.

    They are amazing. They work perfectly, but sadly Dudley is dragging his feet and they come off of him, but when they are on his feet, he is like night and day. He walks up right and gets a good grip on the floor.

    I still pick them up when I see them and put them on his toes, even wearing 2 or 3 on each foot helps a lot.

    These have been great for my senior jack russell terrier on our hardwood floors. He is almost 18 and over the past year has started having problems with slipping on the hardwood, these have really helped.

    Our rescued English bulldog has a spinal deformity which made walking on hardwood and tile floors almost impossible! Thanks to her toe grips she is getting around much much better and is even trying to run now. It provided the traction her back legs so desperately needed! Thanks Dr. Buzby!!!!!

    My arthritic 14 year old Goldie, “Sammy” has a new “leash” on life since he started wearing toe grips. He was barely able to stabilize when standing never mind walk without them. Once I applied them..he began to walk with so much more assurance and stability that I wish I had known about them sooner. I buy the Orange(he weighs 84lbs) and they fit perfectly. I’m about to buy my third set as they need to be replaced every 3 months or so. Toe grips has been one of the best inventions for dogs..if you love your dog and they have a problem with mobility, arthritis or just old age..please purchase toe grips

    I am so glad I found these! My Lab 10 years old has been having problems on our hardwood floors. I made paths with rubber backed rugs but she would still have issues when in between rugs. We tried socks with a tiny bit of rubber on the bottom but she ate them. I found Toegrips and really wanted to try them. Excellent experience with my first order. My lab hates her feet messed with but does not chew at the Toegrips, something I was concerned with. I am already seeing more confidant walking. This is definitely something I will be reordering! Thank you to everyone at Toegrips 🙂

    I ordered Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips on Monday for our 12 yr old border collie/boxerand received them Wednesday and promptly put them on. Diddles has been struggling with getting up from the wood floors and getting up and down the stairs to go outside. The first time he got up from the floor after putting on the ToeGrips it was obvious they helped. He had traction and didn’t struggle. He made short work of the stairs.

    Best investment ever for our older arthritic boy!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for these great aids!

    I absolutely love ToeGripz. My 13 year old mill rescue Yorkie Frankie Ann was afraid to walk on my laminate floors, so I had smelly hairy yucky runners everywhere. I took her to my groomer to have them put on, as its definitely a two person job. After just a couple of days and a few treats, she’s running everywhere. I love them!!!

    ToeGrips have been absolutely life changing for my senior boy Oliver. We adopted him when he was 10 years old, and his back legs and hips were in terrible shape. He also tore his ACL a few months after we brought him home. The majority of our home has hardwood floors or tile, and it was very easy for Oliver to slip, even with rugs. As soon as we put the ToeGrips on Oliver, his mobility throughout our home improved. It’s truly amazing to see the difference in his movement now, he is able to get around easier than I’ve ever seen him before. ToeGrips have also provided me peace of mind, because I feared that Oliver would slip and re-injure his ACL. I highly recommend ToeGrips to anyone with a senior or special needs dog.

    I got mine a few weeks ago my senior is moving around a lot more and harder to catch lol. I do recommend everyone to check the grips daily or every couple of days and push them back in place. A few have come off after a week. That’s my fault for not checking and readjusting them. Ordering my next batch soon. I give this product a thumbs up! Wonderful!

    After 13 years of my dog slipping and sliding, tip toeing, and scared to walk across slick floors he RUNS across them! He not only had all these problems before, but now as he has gotten older with arthritis and Spondylosis he had an even tougher time. He ran across the floor last night for the first time and was so excited and proud of himself. This morning was even better after all his rest and his morning excitement showing through! Thank you so much! Wish y’all had come out with these 13 years ago, but it’s better now than never

    A friend told me about Toe Grips and so I decided to give them a try. Wookie, an 80 lb husky mix was beginning to have trouble even standing up, and he would often slip with his legs splayed out in a painful way. I could help him right himself but worried about what might happen when I wasn’t around. The yoga mats all over the house helped some but were not a great solution.

    Toe grips are truly a dream come true for him. He’s a whole new dog and he seems to be getting stronger as his mobility continues to improve.

    I’ve given my vet a great report and he will recommend them to other old pups as will I!

    A million thanks.

    Love, Jean and Wookie

    I had ordered toe grips and ordered the wrong size. I contacted the gang at the shipping email and got a prompt response. They immediately gave me some helpful information and sent out the correct size. I got them on Lucas, who is 12 yrs old, and he no longer looks like Bambi on the hard wood floors. Thanks again.

    For over 3+ years, my ten-and-a-half-year-old Lab, Cali, has been successfully wearing ToeGrips. Without Dr. Buzby’s product, Cali could not continue her duties as a therapy dog at our local high school where she works two days per week. At the age of two-years, Cali developed a fear of slick floors. Our floors at WHS are so highly polished that they look like ice. Cali’s natural instinct in this situation is to grip with her toes resulting in more slipping and sliding and in turn more stress. Before we discovered ToeGrips, Cali used mesh topped boots with rubber soles, but these were not ideal. The boots became moist in the damp grass during bathroom trips and rubbed sores on her feet making them painful. Cali did not enjoy her therapy work as much when her feet were encased in boots. With the ToeGrips, Cali’s feet are in a natural state. The grips give her proprioceptive feedback and increased traction both of which boost her confidence. The best part is that Cali does not even realize she is wearing the ToeGrips, and once I got used to putting the ToeGrips on her, I discovered I could put them on as quickly as I did the boots. Thanks to Dr. Buzby, the WHS students and staff continue to benefit from Cali’s special brand of love, and she enjoys a stress-free environment, which means Cali again looks forward to “work” days.

    Thank you for making such a GREAT product! My 86lb lab now has a much easier time getting up and around on our tile floors. I use to find him stuck in a position and had to lift him up.

    I’ve seen this product advertised and at first thought it was silly, and as many others was very skeptical. This product is better then I could ever imagine! We ripped out all of our carpets last year and our 11 year old husky absolutely hated the new “slippery” hardwood floors. we had a few falls and I could tell how insecure he was with his footing while walking around.
    In my desperation I was looking into getting rugs for the whole house including the kitchen, but so happy I ordered these toe grips instead. They are truly amazing! For the first time since I can remember our boy was running around in the spair room, jumping and trying to play with our 11 month old pup!
    Koa (our husky) hates having things on his feet, but he hasn’t tried to get these things off at all.
    Wonderful product, would recommend (and already have) to anyone with a dog who may benefit from this great product.

      Dear Tricia,

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your German Shepherd. Most dogs will leave ToeGrips alone as they do not touch the sensitive part of the nail bed when applied correctly. However, there are exceptions to this and therefore situations where we do not recommend continued use of ToeGrips because of chewing and possible ingestion. ToeGrips were designed for senior dogs with mobility issues. There are many reasons why we do not recommend ToeGrips on young, active dogs, one being chewing the ToeGrips. A young dog may be more likely to chew at the ToeGrips than a senior dog simply because of their life stage.

      The other scenario in which we see chewing is with dogs that already have OCD tendencies. Nervous anxiety or separation anxiety can also pose an issue with chewing on ToeGrips. These dogs generally will not relent until they have removed all offending grips. Therefore, we do not recommend continuing use of the ToeGrips in this case.

      Before you get too discouraged, this represents a very small percentage of dogs we have fit with ToeGrips. There are thousands of dogs wearing ToeGrips that do not notice them at all. Rest assured, if your dog is not a good candidate for ToeGrips because of chewing we do offer a satisfaction guarantee and will refund the product purchase price. Please let me know how I can be of additional assistance. Thank you again for your inquiry.

      Sincerely,
      Tara

    Hi, I have a question as well. I have a 2 1/2 year old Olde English Bulldogge with idiopathic epilepsy. He does have some neurologic deficit and he does drag all 4 of his feet. His back end also slides out on him. Our home is mostly linoleum and hard wood. I have noticed that he is starting to limp on his back right leg as well. Would he be a candidate for the toe grips? He also enjoys licking his feet (he has some skin allergies too) Would the glue application help him not eat the toe grips off as well as keep them on when he’s walking around? Thank you for your help!

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your Olde English Bulldog. Due to your dog’s age and condition, I do need some more information before recommending our product. Would you be amenable to continuing the conversation via email? I would like to see some footage of your Bulldog when he is gaiting and have some additional questions about activity level. Also, I would like to include Dr. Buzby in our email conversation as well for her recommendations on how to best help your dog.

    Just wondering if these go over the whole toe or just the nail? I don’t understand how they stay on. My 13 year old lab has severe arthritis in her hind knees and won’t bend her legs so her back legs are sliding out. We’ve placed carpet over all the hardwood but her feet are still sliding. Do people think this product would work?

      Dear Laurie,

      Thank you so much for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your Lab. She sounds like a great candidate for ToeGrips as many of our customers have dogs with arthritis.

      ToeGrips adhere to the nail only by friction. Think of a wide rubber band that will stretch to fit over the nail, but is snug enough to keep from falling off. The ToeGrip should not contact the sensitive tissue of the toe itself or the nail bed. We do recommend an alternate application with glue for dogs with neurological deficits because the dragging associated with this will pop off the ToeGrips.

      If you decide to try ToeGrips we offer a 60-day money back guarantee, so you can try ToeGrips risk free. Thank you again for your inquiry. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. You can contact us directly at customercare@toegrips.com.

    Maddie (14 year old Beagle/Boston Mix) suffers from back issues and drags her feet/ slips often. I am so glad I found Dr Bixby’s Toe Grips! They recommended we super glue them on and that seems to keep them in place for longer. Maddie is slipping less and doesn’t seem to mind them on her toes. I love how she is more willing to walk on our tile and laminate floors!

    My springer spaniel has had tremendous success with toegrips! After a disc injury 3 years ago which left him unable to move his back legs independently he is now walking and running after birds thanks to some great rehab care and toegrips! They help him get traction on wood and tile floors, which is really challenging for him since the injury. Thank you so much for Toegrips!! Woof!

    Winnie, my almost 14 year old boxer girl loves her toe grips! Before the toe grips, she couldn’t greet me on the kitchen hardwood floors when I came in the door because she would slip and slide around. She’d look like Bambi on ice! I’d come in the house and rush to the living room for her boxer wiggles and kisses. Since the toe grips, she’s back to wiggles in the kitchen on the wood floor the second I walk in the door!

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your product. I have a 5 year old Great Pyrenees with elbow dysplasia. We recently moved and our new home is mostly tile and hardwood. Additionally, there are two wooden stairs between the living room and the rest of the house. Nanuk was having a lot of trouble with the stairs and had started pacing back and forth for minutes before walking up them. I was getting concerned because her limping was becoming worse since moving and I could see her confidence deteriorating. I saw and ad for ToeGrips and even though elbow dysplasia was not listed as one of the reasons for using there product I thought I would give it a try anyhow. It was a great decision. Nanuk no longer paces. She takes the steps easily and he gate has improved vastly! I could not be happier with the results. It does my heart good to see my girl so much more comfortable and confident.

    Yeah for Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips!! It is shocking to me to see how my Luke’s ability to get up from the tile floor has degraded in the last three years. Julie, your toe grips make such a difference in his ability to get up and greet us when we’ve been out, when he needs/wants to get up to eat, go out, etc. I’m hoping my clinic, ABCDE Animal Clinic, will start carrying them! They work so well for our sweet deaf but still frisky Sheltie Luke! Xox Di

How to select the right size for your dog:

ToeGrips are sized based on nail circumference, not dog size. Measuring the nails is an important, one-time step. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may quickly fall off or migrate up the nail, causing harm. Follow these instructions to learn how to measure your dog’s nails.


Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the midshaft of the toenail.

Step 2: Hold the floss, wrapped around the nail circumference, with one hand.

Step 3: Use a Sharpie to mark across both pieces of floss. This will generate two points.

Step 4: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.

Step 5: Repeat for all weight-bearing nails on one front and one back paw.

Step 6: Based on the measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart to select the proper size. Sometimes a dog will require a combination of two sizes.

    A big thank you to Toe Grips for providing mobility to my senior cocker spaniel in the last few months of her life. She was having a lot of difficulty with our tile and wood floors and these helped her a lot. Would highly recommend for senior dogs. I have two other dogs and will definitely order again if any problems arise.

    These little things work great!! I am so very pleased with the results. My little dachshund, Maggie is 14 and in her old age it has gotten harder for her to walk on my hardwood floors. I heard of ToeGrips before, but never considered them. Recently, Maggie would just be standing still and her legs would just slip out from under her. After seeing this a couple times and hearing a rave review at work, I decided to buy them. I’m so glad I did. Maggie has never been an active dog, but when she was younger she would run here and there from time to time. However as she got older she never did that. I figured it was just because she was getting old. Well today when I put on the toe grips, we went to the kitchen to get a treat and she ran!!! I have not seen my dog run like that in at least three years. These are a necessity to senior dogs. You will not regret your purchase. Maggie and I are very thankful!!

    When I was still a vet student, the neurologists recommended ToeGrips to several of our patients with weakness or gait problems. So naturally, when my own poor dog had weakness after her second disc surgery, we decided to give ToeGrips a try. The ToeGrips allow her a steadiness on my slick floors, and also help her get a better grip on carpet as well. She’s now her happy, goofy self again! Thanks Dr. Buzby and ToeGrips!

    Our 3.5 year old English Mastiff, Aries, suddenly had several seizures a couple weeks ago. She fell multiple times that day and has been barely able to walk since. All attempts to get up and down have resulted in falls.

    Consequently, we needed to place gait belts around her to help her walk. At 220lb, we had considered putting her down because we felt she was suffering.

    We got the 3XL nail grips and put them on. Aries was immediately able to walk again without slipping or falling. While she is slow, she is significantly better than before and can even manage to take care of her toileting without gait belts.

    We have found that she loses one or two around the house each day but they are simple enough to soak and reapply. Aries doesn’t seem to notice them and they don’t ride up at all. All in all, these have been a Godsend and have allowed us to keep our girl going.

    Not much of a reviewer but this product deserves all it can get! My elderly Fiona, once an active Border Collie, has been physically declining over the last year and just recently she was having trouble keeping her footing on my hardwood and tile floors!

    I trimmed the hair away from her pads and it made no difference. Tried booties….nope…they were off in 2 minutes. Then I found ToeGrips. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    These things work like a charm and she doesn’t even know they’re on her feet (hence they have stayed on). Where she was slipping and face-planting on the floors and then unable to get up she now gets around just like she was before. And the best part is that she seems to have come out of her bit of depression that had settled in.

    Just buy these. They work. They work really great.

    Hi everyone…so I read all the reviews before I bought the grips and often times we don’t know if the reviews are personal opinions or if they are truly genuine. I decided to give the grips a try. I rescued a beautiful yellow lab 1.5 yrs ago. She had been used as a breeder, she obviously had a hip injury at some point that hadn’t been fixed. She was a little over 11 yrs old at that point. After being on our home for several short weeks, she came alive! She was interacting, playing, trusting and it was the most beautiful site. Over the last 3 months I have noticed that she had been having more trouble getting her legs underneath her to get up from the hardwood floors…it was heart breaking. I feared that another injury was around the corner. That’s when I ordered the grips. She wasn’t sure at first about me putting them on but she trusts me…once they were on, she didn’t bother with them again. More importantly, she is able to get up with ease making the likelihood of an injury much less. She has had them on now for 1 week and all are still in place. So, the reviews are true…these grips are making my girl’s retirement quite a bit easier. Thx.

    My old Golden had a history of ACL surgery on both rear legs when she was younger. Over the years, the legs became weaker. She experienced a problem with one of her front legs, and when she weight shifted to her rear legs, they became noticeably weaker very quickly. I already had throw rugs covering every solid surface floor in the house so she could get to her feet and keep her footing. They helped, but not enough. She slipped on the driveway, on the sidewalk — anywhere there was a solid surface. The more she lost her footing, the more unsure of herself she became on any surface.

    I found these toe grips online when I was searching for a solution for slipping feet. It was challenging measuring her toenails because she wouldn’t cooperate. If Dr. Buzby’s figures out a way to do that more easily, it would be really helpful. The first set I ordered were way too tight. I ordered a larger size and put them only on her rear feet. She had no trouble getting up. When she walked across surfaces where her feet usually slipped and she realized they weren’t going to, you could see her relax. Within a short time, she got better control of the muscles in her rear legs, and was no longer slipping.

    For effectiveness, I’d give these toe grips 10 stars. For the cumbersome toenail measuring process, I’d give it 3 stars. For staying on the toenails, I’d give it 4 stars. They are expensive for what you get, but they actually work, so it was worth it.

    The second set fit perfectly, but the act of walking shifts them around and they work their way off over time. One toenail must have been smaller than the others because that grip kept migrating up the nail and I’d catch my dog biting at it because it had become uncomfortable. The one big plus for the grips being such bright colors is that you can easily spot them when they work their way off.

    They probably added a few months to my dog’s life, and I’m grateful for that. I liked them so much that I gave the unused package and the leftover grips from the package I did use to my vet. She was impressed at how well they worked. Thank you Dr. Buzby’s for this easy solution to a common problem in older dogs.

    I have researched and bought many products for my Boxers Hip Dysplasia, Toe Grips are by far the best. I am having a lil trouble with them staying on because of my dogs paw turning under . They have been more than helpful in trying to help me in size,and as a last resort Super Glue. I will continue just because I saw my Boxer run and jump for the first time in months even briefly. The customer service is far beyond anything I could of expected. There is no delays. Thanks to them I might have my dog back without wearing those uncomfortable Boots. I sat try them give them a chance, you won’t be sorry! I have no doubts the rating would be prefect for many Dogs and mine very soon.

    Ollie, the 14 3/4 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniel, has had great success with his Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips. The secret is in putting them on at the right angle on the nail. Ollie is steady on the wood and tile floors now. He even tried running on the wood floor today!

    Got mine and super happy. I held Joy and my husband slipped them on her hind toes. Placed her back on the tile floor and walaaaaa. No more slipping. She has a weak hind end and these toe grips sure beat putting shoes on them. Brilliant product.and thumbs uo.

    This review is less about the product and more about the customer service. So far (about a weeks time) the product seems to be having the intended effect on my old pup. But I wanted to write this note thanking Denise and her team for being so receptive and proactive in dealing with me as a customer. They truly do care about each dog that their product is intended to help. 5 stars all around!

    Dear Dr. Buzby,

    My name is Nana. I’m a retired Champion Frisbee Dog and a Therapy dog. I am 16 years old and still going strong. I have trouble getting up with the arthritis and the hardwood floors in our home. My mom did her homework and decided that ToeGrips would be something to try.
    I’ve had them on for about five hours and already I get up more knowing that I wont need to tense my legs and pray not to slip and fall down.

    Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    Nitro Nana
    Border Collie

    After my 7 year old 90 lb berner had 2 cruciate ligament surgeries, she continued to have difficulty walking. Worse, she could no longer get herself up off of wood or slate floors. It was disturbing watching her struggle and at times, cry. I did a lot of research looking for a solution. Other products seemed impractical, short term, and without success. I came upon Dr. Buzby’s toe grips. It seemed logical and not intrusive or a problem keeping on.
    We are so pleased with the results. Dr. Buzby’s video made it easy to measure apply. She no longer struggles or cries when getting off the floor.

    Further Dr. Buzby went above and beyond in helping us fit our berner. Thank you so much Dr. Buzby for invented and getting to market, toe grips.

    I want to thank you for developing these toes grips. I have hardwood floors and my Cavalier King Charles, Ash, was slipping at times. He also has Syringomyelia and seems to be having some clumsiness in his back legs. He’s like a new dog, now. He walks and jumps with ease and confidence. Ash and I thank you! With his gremlin like hairy feet, I can’t even see them.

    KC is 1n 11 year old Cavalier with arthritis. The toe grips are a life saver. KC is so much happier – actually acts like a puppy again. We tried stick on pads with very little success – they fall off after one day. He was having a very hard time walking on our tile floors. Now he has very little problems. Would recommend these to everyone.

    I don’t even know where to begin on how pleased we are with the toe grips. The day they arrived, Brody stepped off the bed and couldn’t gain any traction to get him self back up on the hard woods. It’s the worst thing to watch. I got him to lay down and after about 20 minutes he was wearing his new toe grips. He was a bit hesitant to stand up at first as he usually runs as quickly as he can to build up momentum in order to get from one rug to another. He stood up on his first try on the wood floor. Within minutes he realized he was able to grip and has since been around us walking around the house constantly. He doesn’t think twice about being on the hard woods now. It’s unreal the progress we’ve seen in a matter of one week! He typically stays in his room on the bed most of the day, but since we put the toe grips on, he is on the move constantly. I’ve had Brody for almost 11 years now and this is the most progress he’s shown since he began showing signs of degenerative hip disorder years ago. It brought tears to my eyes when he began confidently walking around, with no problems. I will be a lifetime customer and will advocate your product anytime the chance presents itself. Thank you for changing mine and Brody’s lives for the better. I will forever be grateful and I know he will be too.

    My nineteen years young princess Sabrinnah is getting a grip on life once again thanks to the Toe Grips! I just can’t thank you enough. The shipping was fast and the communication amazing. Sabrinnah is a border collie lab mix, in other words she’s a mutt, lol. But, she’s my princess and priceless in my eyes. Give them a try. Don’t get discouraged if one fall off here or there, they’ll eventually stay. They’re worth every penny. God bless you all for what you’re doing for our four legged furr babies with tails!

    My lovely Lady is a rescue Dalmatian. Poor soul came to me 7 years ago, after she was pulled out of a puppy mill in Gainesville, New York. She chose me. She’s been a wonderful dog, but she’s had her challenges. Poor thing was full of every parasite in the book. Cleared those. Surgery for mammary cancers from overbreeding. Check. She needed extensive dental surgery to fix teeth she’d ruined chewing on her cage. Done: 13 extractions and removal of a malignancy in her jaw bone. Then she got idiopathic vestibular disease last year. She’s a fighter and she overcame it. She and I loved our daily runs together, she got her balance back and we kept on running. But then old age quickly set in. Suddenly, she could get up. She couldn’t eat without her legs splaying underneath her. She lost weight and muscle tone. She became quiet and retiring because she was nervous on the slippery floors. She stopped greeting me at the door when I came home because she didn’t want to get up. Normally a clean dog, she started having accidents wherever she was because she wasn’t confident to get up and go out. When I boarded her at her kennel two months ago, they asked if she had lost the function of her hind end. I said, “no, she just needs you to lift her to her feet. She can’t get to her feet by herself any more.” I was so sad for her – I could see in her mind she was still the young girl I rescued from Gainesville and she couldn’t understand her body betraying her. It came so fast.

    I heard about toegrips on Facebook, and so I ordered some. After I put them on and she realized she wasn’t sliding any more. She got a spring in her step right away. Now her legs stay still while she’s eating/drinking. It’s still a challenge, but she can actually pull herself to her own feet on a hardwood or ceramic floor now. This gives her some independence and confidence. She is happier now. Her tail is wagging. When I come home, she even gets to her feet and greets me at the door. Without her anxiety, she’s even cleaner in the house, and I can leave her uncrated overnight again. She is happier, I am happier.

    The toegrips only stay on with friction, so a few will come off every day. This is a problem because in 3 days, they might have all come off. A drop of Krazy Glue will secure the toegrips, so you don’t have the daily fall-offs. Just wear some disposable gloves. Put your toegrips in rubbing alcohol in the usual way. Take them out of the rubbing alcohol then drop a bead of krazy glue in the centre of the toegrip. Then apply it the same way you normally would. When you’re done, throw away your disposable gloves.

    I bought a couple of spare sets of toe-grips – it’s cheaper than a vet visit. It’s cheaper than a bottle of analgesic.

    The toe grips are awesome. Madison(12) has allot of difficulty getting up and walking on the slick surfaces in this house. The toe grips were a breeze to place on her nails. I have been amazed that Madison has left the toe grips in place because she will chew on her nails at times. Madison’s confidence has been boosted by the toe grips. I should have purchased the toe grips much sooner.

    I have been using toe grips for about 3 months and they work perfectly! I have to put a little super glue in them as my 13 yr old yellow lab has degenerative myelopathy and they tend to slide off without it. He no longer slips or splays out on the hard wood floors. Getting ready to order my third set and so happy they work so well!! Buddy says thank you for this product!!

    Buddy is a six year old Lab/Terrier mix. My wife and I adopted him from a local SPCA in upstate New York when he was fifteen weeks old. He IS our only child.

    He’s very smart (potty trained in a week!) and affectionate, and until a month ago had only known carpeted floors. Oh, he’s also spoiled rotted.

    We recently moved to North Carolina and our new home has hardwood floors. The poor guy looked like a baby deer on ice. It’s gotten so bad that he looks at the floor with trepidation and has strained his front legs and needed to visit our vet. The great staff at the Youngsville Animal Hospital recommended Dr. Buzby’s toe grips.

    We ordered three sets (to make certain that he had the right size, large fits him best) and applied them today. The results were visible almost immediately! He has more confidence and appears much happier.

    We would like to thank you for providing a wonderful product and wish you much success.

    Here is Buddy. And even though he has more stability, he still prefers the lap of luxury.

    We are calling this product totally successful for Laila Ali. As a tripod with her back leg as an FHO, walking on hardwoods and slick floors, a major challenge she balked, slipped and slid. We did have to use crazy glue front and back, because anyone that knows Laila knows she’s a bit of a wild child! Dad and I were most impressed with turns, she’d wipe out and you never knew which direction that paw would be facing prior to Toe Grips. Her tripod brother will be 10 this year, navigates much better than her and has full use of his back leg, but I feel for longevity sake, hip safety, and the occasion he does slip, he’d benefit from going no slip as well. Thank you Dr Buzby for an amazing product, and for the tube of glue, we used it all doing all toes. And everyone who knows Laila I know is asking, is she trying to pull them off? Nope! She’s totally ignored them. No more throw rugs covering every inch of hardswoods! Yay! Actions speak louder than words, so take a look at

    My Australian Shepherd Kobe will be 14 years in April. He’s got arthritis in his joints and some muscle atrophy in his hind legs and we have Pergo floors. Watching him struggle to get up was so heartbreaking for us and so frustrating for him. I knew there was no way that he would wear any type of sock or boot and carpeting the house was out of the question since that is not in the budget, so I kept searching the Internet for an alternative and came across Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips. Yay! I wasn’t sure what size to buy so I ended up taking Kobe to a local vet who came up in my search for the ToeGrips who would do the trimming of nails and determine the sizing. This was in December. Kobe is just now at the point where he will need them to be replaced as we notice he is losing traction, and since we now know his size we can get them directly from Dr. Buzby and my husband can keep his nails trimmed. I thank God for Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips because it’s given my dog his confidence back and the ability to get up on his own. If you’ve purchased the Grips and they’re falling off I’m sure that you’ve purchased the wrong size. In all this time I’ve only had to replace two, (the pack comes with 4 extra grips) and that’s been fairly recently. I love what Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips have done for my boy. Thank you!

    I love the toe grips and the wonderful customer service. They’ve given my dog much more traction on our floors! Dr. Julie and her workers have been a great help in helping me make sure I have the toe grips on properly and in troubleshooting what was wrong when I first put them on and had difficulty.

    I highly recommend watching the GREAT videos before putting on the toe grips. They’re wonderful!

    I recommend these grips to anyone who’s dog is having traction issues. No matter their age, I think these easy to use grips are well worth it to give them more comfort and fewer falls in their lives.

    My dog is much happier and active indoors with her grips! If your dog has lots of paw hair like mine, I recommend keeping their paw hair short to ensure good contact between the grips and the floor.

    Wonderful product!

His confidence soared and he can now safely walk on the floors. Thank you for this incredible product

    My holistic vet, Dr. Nancy Bozeman located in Kennedale, TX introduced me to Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for my 4 year old Catahoula. I was told by a traditional vet my dog needed double knee surgeries. In addition to alternative medicine I feel the ToeGrips had a major part of my dogs healing as she did not have to struggle to get up. I would not just recommend the use of ToeGrips for older dogs but in many other situations as well. We still get our pedicures monthly and will continue to forever. My dog is now 6 years old.

    Until we lost Mika earlier this month (at well over age 16) her ToeGrips made a big difference for her being able to get around on hardwood floors in particular. Right up to the end, she wore them on her front paw claws, though we eventually had to move to grip socks and booties on the back (but only for the last month or so). The only issue I ran into was having the ToeGrips come off and go missing. But I didn’t want them to be too hard to put on or take off, so had to live with the consequences. Thanks!

    I bought these to help my almost 18 year old doxie. He has trouble standing straight and splays out while eating. He loses his footing on the wood floors as well. I tried these out, and was sent two sizes to check which would fit Dudley better.

    They are amazing. They work perfectly, but sadly Dudley is dragging his feet and they come off of him, but when they are on his feet, he is like night and day. He walks up right and gets a good grip on the floor.

    I still pick them up when I see them and put them on his toes, even wearing 2 or 3 on each foot helps a lot.

We tried socks with a tiny bit of rubber on the bottom but she ate them. I found Toegrips and really wanted to try them. Excellent experience with my first order.

    ToeGrips have been absolutely life changing for my senior boy Oliver. We adopted him when he was 10 years old, and his back legs and hips were in terrible shape. He also tore his ACL a few months after we brought him home. The majority of our home has hardwood floors or tile, and it was very easy for Oliver to slip, even with rugs. As soon as we put the ToeGrips on Oliver, his mobility throughout our home improved. It’s truly amazing to see the difference in his movement now, he is able to get around easier than I’ve ever seen him before. ToeGrips have also provided me peace of mind, because I feared that Oliver would slip and re-injure his ACL. I highly recommend ToeGrips to anyone with a senior or special needs dog.

He not only had all these problems before, but now as he has gotten older with arthritis and Spondylosis he had an even tougher time. He ran across the floor last night for the first time and was so excited and proud of himself. This morning was even better after all his rest and his morning excitement showing through!

    A friend told me about Toe Grips and so I decided to give them a try. Wookie, an 80 lb husky mix was beginning to have trouble even standing up, and he would often slip with his legs splayed out in a painful way. I could help him right himself but worried about what might happen when I wasn’t around. The yoga mats all over the house helped some but were not a great solution.

    Toe grips are truly a dream come true for him. He’s a whole new dog and he seems to be getting stronger as his mobility continues to improve.

    I’ve given my vet a great report and he will recommend them to other old pups as will I!

    A million thanks.

    For over 3+ years, my ten-and-a-half-year-old Lab, Cali, has been successfully wearing ToeGrips. Without Dr. Buzby’s product, Cali could not continue her duties as a therapy dog at our local high school where she works two days per week. At the age of two-years, Cali developed a fear of slick floors. Our floors at WHS are so highly polished that they look like ice. Cali’s natural instinct in this situation is to grip with her toes resulting in more slipping and sliding and in turn more stress. Before we discovered ToeGrips, Cali used mesh topped boots with rubber soles, but these were not ideal. The boots became moist in the damp grass during bathroom trips and rubbed sores on her feet making them painful. Cali did not enjoy her therapy work as much when her feet were encased in boots. With the ToeGrips, Cali’s feet are in a natural state. The grips give her proprioceptive feedback and increased traction both of which boost her confidence. The best part is that Cali does not even realize she is wearing the ToeGrips, and once I got used to putting the ToeGrips on her, I discovered I could put them on as quickly as I did the boots. Thanks to Dr. Buzby, the WHS students and staff continue to benefit from Cali’s special brand of love, and she enjoys a stress-free environment, which means Cali again looks forward to “work” days.

    I’ve seen this product advertised and at first thought it was silly, and as many others was very skeptical. This product is better then I could ever imagine! We ripped out all of our carpets last year and our 11 year old husky absolutely hated the new “slippery” hardwood floors. we had a few falls and I could tell how insecure he was with his footing while walking around.
    In my desperation I was looking into getting rugs for the whole house including the kitchen, but so happy I ordered these toe grips instead. They are truly amazing! For the first time since I can remember our boy was running around in the spair room, jumping and trying to play with our 11 month old pup!
    Koa (our husky) hates having things on his feet, but he hasn’t tried to get these things off at all.

      Dear Tricia,

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your German Shepherd. Most dogs will leave ToeGrips alone as they do not touch the sensitive part of the nail bed when applied correctly. However, there are exceptions to this and therefore situations where we do not recommend continued use of ToeGrips because of chewing and possible ingestion. ToeGrips were designed for senior dogs with mobility issues. There are many reasons why we do not recommend ToeGrips on young, active dogs, one being chewing the ToeGrips. A young dog may be more likely to chew at the ToeGrips than a senior dog simply because of their life stage.

      The other scenario in which we see chewing is with dogs that already have OCD tendencies. Nervous anxiety or separation anxiety can also pose an issue with chewing on ToeGrips. These dogs generally will not relent until they have removed all offending grips. Therefore, we do not recommend continuing use of the ToeGrips in this case.

      Before you get too discouraged, this represents a very small percentage of dogs we have fit with ToeGrips. There are thousands of dogs wearing ToeGrips that do not notice them at all. Rest assured, if your dog is not a good candidate for ToeGrips because of chewing we do offer a satisfaction guarantee and will refund the product purchase price. Please let me know how I can be of additional assistance. Thank you again for your inquiry.

      Sincerely,
      Tara

    Hi, I have a question as well. I have a 2 1/2 year old Olde English Bulldogge with idiopathic epilepsy. He does have some neurologic deficit and he does drag all 4 of his feet. His back end also slides out on him. Our home is mostly linoleum and hard wood. I have noticed that he is starting to limp on his back right leg as well. Would he be a candidate for the toe grips? He also enjoys licking his feet (he has some skin allergies too) Would the glue application help him not eat the toe grips off as well as keep them on when he’s walking around? Thank you for your help!

      Thank you for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your Olde English Bulldog. Due to your dog’s age and condition, I do need some more information before recommending our product. Would you be amenable to continuing the conversation via email? I would like to see some footage of your Bulldog when he is gaiting and have some additional questions about activity level. Also, I would like to include Dr. Buzby in our email conversation as well for her recommendations on how to best help your dog.

      Please contact me at customercare@toegrips.com. Thank you so much. I look forward to continuing the conversation.

      Sincerely,
      Tara

    Just wondering if these go over the whole toe or just the nail? I don’t understand how they stay on. My 13 year old lab has severe arthritis in her hind knees and won’t bend her legs so her back legs are sliding out. We’ve placed carpet over all the hardwood but her feet are still sliding. Do people think this product would work?

    Thanks Laurie

      Dear Laurie,

      Thank you so much for your interest in Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for your Lab. She sounds like a great candidate for ToeGrips as many of our customers have dogs with arthritis.

      ToeGrips adhere to the nail only by friction. Think of a wide rubber band that will stretch to fit over the nail, but is snug enough to keep from falling off. The ToeGrip should not contact the sensitive tissue of the toe itself or the nail bed. We do recommend an alternate application with glue for dogs with neurological deficits because the dragging associated with this will pop off the ToeGrips.

      If you decide to try ToeGrips we offer a 60-day money back guarantee, so you can try ToeGrips risk free. Thank you again for your inquiry. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. You can contact us directly at customercare@toegrips.com.

      Sincerely,
      Tara

    Maddie (14 year old Beagle/Boston Mix) suffers from back issues and drags her feet/ slips often. I am so glad I found Dr Bixby’s Toe Grips! They recommended we super glue them on and that seems to keep them in place for longer. Maddie is slipping less and doesn’t seem to mind them on her toes. I love how she is more willing to walk on our tile and laminate floors!

    My springer spaniel has had tremendous success with toegrips! After a disc injury 3 years ago which left him unable to move his back legs independently he is now walking and running after birds thanks to some great rehab care and toegrips! They help him get traction on wood and tile floors, which is really challenging for him since the injury. Thank you so much for Toegrips!! Woof!

    Winnie, my almost 14 year old boxer girl loves her toe grips! Before the toe grips, she couldn’t greet me on the kitchen hardwood floors when I came in the door because she would slip and slide around. She’d look like Bambi on ice! I’d come in the house and rush to the living room for her boxer wiggles and kisses. Since the toe grips, she’s back to wiggles in the kitchen on the wood floor the second I walk in the door! Winnie says thanks Dr. Buzby!

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your product. I have a 5 year old Great Pyrenees with elbow dysplasia. We recently moved and our new home is mostly tile and hardwood. Additionally, there are two wooden stairs between the living room and the rest of the house. Nanuk was having a lot of trouble with the stairs and had started pacing back and forth for minutes before walking up them. I was getting concerned because her limping was becoming worse since moving and I could see her confidence deteriorating. I saw and ad for ToeGrips and even though elbow dysplasia was not listed as one of the reasons for using there product I thought I would give it a try anyhow. It was a great decision. Nanuk no longer paces. She takes the steps easily and he gate has improved vastly! I could not be happier with the results. It does my heart good to see my girl so much more comfortable and confident.

    Yeah for Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips!! It is shocking to me to see how my Luke’s ability to get up from the tile floor has degraded in the last three years. Julie, your toe grips make such a difference in his ability to get up and greet us when we’ve been out, when he needs/wants to get up to eat, go out, etc. I’m hoping my clinic, ABCDE Animal Clinic, will start carrying them! They work so well for our sweet deaf but still frisky Sheltie Luke! Xox Di

    My 13 year old Lhasa apso/poodle has severe arthritis and really struggles on our hard floors. I first put the grips on when his nails were really long… Then I saw a thing Dr. Buzby posted about trimming nails. I got his nails trimmed then reapplied. HUGE difference. He’s not slipping and sliding nearly as much. Totally worth it!

    Wonderful product!! Works 100% as good as advertised. I was skeptical at first, but they produced instant results. My almost 15 year old cavachon has been wearing the same set for a few months now and we’ve only lost 1! With regular nail clipping and adjusting them after the toe grips continue to help my boy walk comfortably. Thank you Dr Buzby!!!!

    I was skeptical that these were going to be effective, but my dog (disk disease and a subarachnoid cyst in the spine) can walk on my wood floors, no problems! Amazing product, and as a vet I will recommend these to my clients!

    The ToeGrips make it easier for Gypsy (14) to walk on hardwood floors. She seems much more confident and they don’t bother her at all
