Voyagers K9 Apparel Greyhound Dog Booties

Our long slipper-style dog booties protect dog paws from snow, ice, and salt. Offering warmth and comfort outdoors, Voyagers K9 Apparel dog booties keep paws free of mud and slush so they will be cleaner when coming back indoors. Indoors, our booties help dogs walk more confidently on slippery tile or hardwood while preventing scratching. Consider an extra set of these machine-washable booties for indoor use.

Check out these answers to questions about our dog booties. Please note, our dog booties are not exchangeable, returnable, or refundable, so we suggest that you do a simple test to see if your dog is likely to accept wearing footware:

  1. Get two pairs of baby socks or kid's socks that fit your dog's paws.
  2. Put two of the socks on either the front or back paws, and have your dog stand on a non-slippery surface. Allow time for your dog to get used to the socks.
  3. If your dog is okay wearing two socks, put socks on the remaining paws.
  4. Allow time for your dog to get used to the socks.
    • If your dog moves around wearing all four socks, this is a good indication your dog will accept wearing booties.
    • If your dog does not accept wearing socks, it is unlikely your dog will accept wearing booties, and we suggest not purchasing booties for your dog.

How do I choose a size?

For the best fit, select the dog bootie size according to your dog's weight as listed in the size chart for the specific breed. Please do not guess at the size since booties are not exchangeable, returnable, or refundable.

Will the booties stay on my dog?

Each bootie of Polartec© polar fleece is held in place with two straps of velcro so they are easy to put on and stay in place on active dogs.

What is Mega Grip©?

Mega Grip is a durable rubberized fabric that works well on ice and in snow. Please be aware that material will wear more easily on abrasive surfaces, such as concrete and asphalt.

Are the booties fully lined?

Yes. Voyagers K9 Apparel dog booties are fully lined with Polartec© 200 Classic double velour fabric. This fabric is quick-drying, colorfast, does not pill, and stands up to repeated washing.

What is the advantage of the slipper style dog bootie?

Our slipper syle is easy to slide on over your dog's paws and long enough to pull up and over the lower leg area for extra coverage.

Note: Voyagers K9 Apparel booties offer good protection for injured paws as long as the injury allows you to slide your dog's paw into the slipper-style bootie.

Are the booties waterproof?

No. These booties are not waterproof. These booties are made of polar fleece and have a seam around the rubberized Mega Grip bottom so water could soak in if submerged or worn in rainy weather.

Can booties be returned?

No. Our booties cannot be returned or exchanged, and are non-refundable.

My dog's breed isn't listed. Can you suggest booties that will fit my dog?

Unfortunately, we cannot offer suggestions on selecting booties for breeds not available through K9 Apparel and are unable to compare our bootie measurements to your dog's paw measurements or offer suggestions on sizing for other breeds.

Do you make custom booties?

No. We do not offer custom-made booties because of the many variables that cause booties to work well for some breeds and not for others.

You make coats for my dog's breed but you don't offer booties. Why not?

We've discontinued making booties for some breeds due to various reasons that include irregularities related to paw size, leg length, and other design difficulties.

How many booties come in one order?

One order of booties comes as a full set of four booties for your dog.
