As a Colorado resident with “dogs on the go,” asking Ruff Wear to send a pair of their all-terrain Bark’n boots to review was a no-brainer!

I can’t believe how well-made these boots are! They are perfect for providing traction for our dogs on the snow and ice and will be great for hiking in the foothills and mountains this summer. Another big winter benefit is protection for his pads from the salt and chemicals used to melt snow on the sidewalks and streets.

Intended Use:

Hiking, backpacking, walking, and running on steep, rough or rocky terrain to prevent paw damage. Also for traction on slippery surfaces. Non-marking sole is safe for indoor and nautical use.

Key Features:

Rugged lug pattern provides stability on rough or unstable terrain

Ventilating mesh upper provides breathability and wicks away moisture

Expansion gusset makes the boots easy to put on

Sure Cinch closure strap provides secure fit, ensuring boots stay on paws

Reflective trim provides visibility in low-light conditions

Seamless construction reduces abrasion and enhances fit

Non-marking VibramTMoutsole for high-grip, high-traction, high-mileage, and high-performance

We found the trick is getting your dog to wear them! We started slowly, rewarding our dog for just allowing us to put one boot on one foot for a few seconds. We then performed the same routine each day until we had covered all four feet. We gradually worked up to fastening all four boots on his feet and rewarding him for standing in them. It wasn’t long until he would walk around the house with his boots on and soon forgot all about them when he was running outside in the snow.
