Protection and comfort for all dog paws

As experts in pet care, you undoubtedly understand the importance of providing the best equipment for our beloved four-legged friends. In this article, we want to draw attention to an essential accessory: Rukka dog shoes. Designed with the well-being and needs of dogs in mind, these shoes offer protection, comfort, and style for every four-legged friend.

Why Dog Shoes?

Wearing dog shoes can offer numerous benefits, depending on the situation and the individual needs of the dog. Here are some reasons why it can be important to put on dog shoes:

  1. Protection against extreme temperatures: Dog shoes can protect dogs' paws from extreme temperatures, both hot and cold surfaces. On hot summer days, they can provide protection against hot asphalt or sand, while in winter, they offer insulation against frozen ground or ice.
  2. Protection against sharp objects: On trails or terrains with sharp objects such as stones, shells, or glass, dog shoes can protect dogs' paws from cuts, scrapes, or splinters.
  3. Enhanced traction: Dog shoes with non-slip soles can provide extra traction on slippery or slick surfaces, allowing dogs to walk, run, and play safely without slipping.
  4. Protection against chemicals: In urban environments, dog shoes can offer protection against chemicals like road salt, which can cause irritation to the paws upon contact.
  5. Caring for injuries or sensitive paws: Dog shoes can be useful in caring for paw injuries or for dogs with sensitive paws due to allergies or other skin conditions. They provide a protective layer and reduce direct contact with irritants.

When to Use Dog Shoes?

Situations where it can be useful to put on dog shoes include walks on hot summer days, hikes on rough terrain, walks in urban environments with potentially hazardous substances on the ground, and during winter sports activities. It's important to consider the individual needs of the dog and the specific circumstances of each situation when deciding if wearing dog shoes is necessary.

Rukka shoe size

What Size Dog Shoe?

Use a tape measure to measure the width and length of the dog's paws. Measure the width at the widest part of the paw and the length from the foot to the nail. If this is not possible, trace the outline of the paw on a piece of paper with a pen. Look in the size chart of the dog shoes and compare the measured dimensions of the dog's paws with the recommended size in the chart.

In addition to finding the right size based on measurements, it's also important to consider the fit and comfort of the shoes. Ensure the shoes are not too tight, which can cause discomfort, but also not too loose, as they may slip off during activities. If the dog shoes have a closure, such as Velcro or a zipper, make sure it is securely fastened but not too tight. This helps keep the shoes in place during wear.

Regardless of the dog's needs or preferences, Rukka has the perfect dog shoes for every situation. As pet store employees, you can advise customers on the best choices for their furry friends, so they can enjoy safe and comfortable adventures together, wherever they go!
