Best Non Slip Dog Socks

Please Contact Us for Sizing Assistance to Ensure the Best Fit for Your Dog

Grippers™, a Dog Quality product; are non-slip dog socks which give your older dog the traction they need on slippery indoor surfaces such as tile or hardwood. An innovative design provides a grip around the entire paw so even if the socks twist, your dog will continue to have the traction they need. 4 socks per set.

The soft rubber coating creates a waterproof barrier so these dog socks can also be worn outdoors. No more having to take the traction socks on and off each time your dog goes outside. *Please note: Due to the rubber coating Grippers do not provide traction on snow or ice therefore we do not recommend using them in winter conditions.

Both weight and paw measurements are very important in determining the correct size. If your dog does not match the weight category for his paw size, please contact us for sizing assistance. When measuring width please have your dog standing (if possible) and measure flat across the top of the paw at the widest point - please do not measure down the sides. Alternatively, you can have your dog standing on a piece of paper and then mark both sides of the paw and measure the distance between these marks. If your dog is 60 lbs or more we recommend going up one size from where the width lines up with our sizing. 

It is difficult for dogs with arthritis and other mobility challenges to remain stable on tile and hardwood and can often fall very hard on these unforgiving floors, so Grippers are a great way to help stabilize them and keep them safely on their feet. More comfortable than dog shoes or dog boots and more protective than regular dog socks, Grippers represent a step forward in dog footwear.

FAQs

How do I know what size to get?

It's very important to measure the paw then check our sizes. For the length measure underneath from the toe pad to the last pad. For the width measure flat across the top of the paw at the widest part not including the sides. Alternatively, you can have your dog standing on a piece of paper and then mark both sides of the paw and measure the distance between these marks. If your dog is 60 lbs + we recommend going up one size from where the width matches on our sizing. If you need assistance, please feel free to contact us and we'd be happy to recommend the best size.

Can they be worn outside?

Yes,the soft rubber coating creates a waterproof barrier so these dog socks can be worn outdoors. Many of our customers find them effective as paw protectors.

How long can my dog wear the socks?

Your dog can wear the socks for long periods of time, however we suggest testing him for a couple hours first and extending the intervals from there to ensure your dog is comfortable with his/her new footwear. We also strongly recommend taking them off at night.

Why does my dog walk funny when wearing them?

It will take a little bit of time for your dog to adjust to their new footwear but they will soon forget they are wearing socks. To help them along try using a treat and walking backwards to get them walking. The more they walk, the more comfortable they will feel.

Are these socks breathable?

Because the paw area of the socks are dipped in rubber they are not completely breathable, but since there is a layer of sock between the paw and the rubber, it makes a big difference compared to footwear that has no layer in between. The rest of the sock is very breathable.

What happens if they don’t fit?

Our goal is to get the best fit possible for your dog, that is why measuring is important. If the socks do not fit please let us know; we will likely ask you to send us a picture with your dog wearing the Grippers to assess fit and ask you to re-measure so we can recommend the best size. We would send out a new pair of Grippers if needed. Once you receive the Grippers and make sure they fit, we would have you donate the pair that didn’t fit to a dog rescue or your vet so another dog could benefit from them. Please keep in mind that the socks do need to fit snug and will stretch.

Can they be used in the snow?

Our socks were originally designed to provide traction on indoor flooring, but some customers have also found they have helped protect against snow clumps. However due to the rubber material, they do not provide any traction in snow or on ice and will not prevent your dog from slipping.

Helping my senior dog to not slip

My dog was slipping out on the hardwood floors, causing noticable pain in her legs and hips. With a previous dog I had gotten carpet runners everywhere. These sox are so helpful and we dont' need the runners! Thank you for this idea! Simple but effective!

Just what I was looking for

I have a 17-year-old Border Collie and she was having trouble walking of our wood floors, always slipping and sometime falling, I would find her spread eagle on the floor somewhere and she couldn't get herself up. These booties are great, I tried them without the Velcro at first and all of them fell off. So, I put them back on with the Velcro and they stay on quite nicely, every once and I while one will fall off, but no big deal. After she learned how to walk with them, she gets around so much better, I don't worry about her spread eagle on the floor somewhere. I would definitely recommend these; I would most certainly purchase again if I needed more.

Work great

These have worked great for my older GAD as well as my dog with DM. Traction is very good, they stay in place inside and outside and dogs adjusted to them immediately. My use them in the house and have worn them outside around the g farm and they hold up great.

Somewhat helpful

These socks definitely help my senior dogs get around better. However, they have figured out how to remove them no matter how high I pull them or where I wrap the velcro. Also, the rubber on a couple of the socks (I have 8) has already started to crack.

Too small

My fault, I misjudged.

Hi Peyton,

Sorry to hear that the socks are too small but we are happy to help resolve. Can you please let us know your dog's breed, weight and paw width (measured while standing) so we can help to get you the right size?

Thanks again.
