Most of us have smooth floor surfaces in our homes, but did you know they pose a safety risk for your dog? Laminate, tile and hardwood floors look great, and they’re easy to keep clean, but your dog’s paws aren’t designed to walk on such smooth hard surfaces. And that can lead to slipping, sliding and falling – and potentially serious injury. Luckily, there are many ways to prevent these accidents from happening.
Tips To Prevent Slipping | Animal Wellness Magazine
Let me start by saying this product will help keep your pets safe. We have a senior dog (now 14ish) and hardwood floors. Several years ago in Wrigley’s (then 12ish) enthusiasm for someone at our front door he dashed that way and he slipped his back legs splaying out. He was in obvious pain and ended up having caused a hairline fracture in his sacrum. Older dog, older bones. We were extremely grateful to discover Toe Grips as part of our solution. It allowed Wrig to have traction on whatever surface he was on but especially smooth and potentially slippery ones. We have kept the toe grips on him ever since. He is “Mr. Toe Grips” and will be for the rest of his life.

If you would have walked into my home several months ago, you would have thought it was a showroom for throw rugs! My dog, Paddington Bear, a 110 pound South Russian Sheepdog, had great difficulty walking on the hardwood floors due to advanced arthritis in his back legs. Before the Toe Grips came to my attention while searching the internet for solutions, he would often “wipe-out” while going from room to room. I tried everything else my vet suggested, so why not give this a shot? The information and short tutorial videos on the website were exactly what I needed to get started! I measured the circumference of his nails, then placed the order. Within days, I received the Toe Grips and proceeded to apply them with the guidance of another website video. All very simple!! I started picking up the throw rugs, one by one. He could easily navigate the hardwood floors without slipping! He regained confidence and mobility!
