Power Paws are the only sock solution available in 13 sizes across two foot shapes! This ensures a great fit for virtually all breeds, and all dogs from 6 pounds to 240 pounds. The Advanced socks are the only product available that offers a reinforced toe -- a feature that is useful for dogs with long nails, and those with neurological issues that might involve tapping a toe or dragging a foot. (See Power Paws Reinforced Foot for a ruggedized whole foot area). Power Paws are a year 'round outdoor solution for protecting paws from the elements. In the summer, they protect paws from scorching pavement and other hot surfaces. In the winter, spray Power Paws with Scotchgard or other waterproofing spray to keep the paws warm and dry while keeping snow, ice, and salt off paws. All year, but especially during spring and fall allergies, Power Paws are the only non-drug solution for dust, dirt, grass, and pollen issues. They also help keep paw wounds clean while providing air flow for healing. Which foot shape do I need? Most dogs wear Power Paws, but choose the Greyhound Edition if the pad group on the bottom of the paw is far longer than it is wide (officially called "hare foot") . More than Greyhounds and Poodles can have hare feet. And some dogs, especially the working and herding breeds, can have very different front and back paws. How do I know if I need Power Paws Advanced or Power Paws Reinforced Foot? The Advanced (with a reinforced toe) will work well for most dogs. Dogs that do rugged activities outdoors (like camping, hiking, hunting) and those walking on abrasive surfaces (like sand or pool decks) plus those that wear or drag in an area other than the toe, will benefit from the more durable Reinforced Foot product. How do I know what size to get? The weight and breed guides are a good way to determine size, but they are based on averages. The foot print guide is another check on the size.

The socks do seem to make it easier for our dog to get around. However, she has gotten pretty good at taking them off herself. The big suggestion for purchasers: download the Woodrow Wear sizing chart. Unless you have the breed mentioned in the weight section, you may find the socks are quite the wrong size. For example, our dog weighs 64#, yet she needs the XL size (starts at 95#). With the sizing chart, it was easy to figure that out. See http://woodrowwear.com/size-guide/
These dog socks are soft and breathable and my lab doesn't mind wearing them. But like all traction socks, they twist and do not stay on. That's just the nature of any footwear for dogs. Keep in mind, these are socks for dogs. Not something you naturally see on dogs.
I watched a video on YouTube where someone made crude suspenders to keep the socks on his dog's feet. I got a little creative and installed grommets on each sock, attached elastic and fashioned dog suspenders. Took two or three attempts to get the elastic worked out on my dog, but they hold the socks on his feet and they don't twist.
Think outside the box! We do what we can for our dogs. I figured I could spend better use of my time figuring out something to keep the socks on his feet instead of complaining that the socks don't work. When they stay on, they are soft, comfortable, they don't smell, they can be washed, and they keep him from slipping. That works as stated in my book. He can now move...
These worked very well on my 14 year old Golden. We stopped using all four socks because the ones on his front paws were twisting around to the grippers wouldn't be in the right place. The socks on his back paws twist a little and have to be restated a couple of times per day. But overall he is walking much better on the hardwood floors. So I consider them a great success!
