Made from actual tire rubber, these are some of the toughest and most durable dog boots we have found! These boots are all rubber with tread on the bottom for increased traction on most surfaces and added life to the soles of the boots. They also have drain holes. These boots are great for heavy rock, brush, sand spurs and ice/snow that tears at your dog's pads. 4 boots included.
To secure them, put a layer of first aid wrap around the dog’s leg, slide on the boot and secure with duct tape around the first aid wrap.
Great boots, but its all in how you put them on. First go to Wal-Mart and get some Duck Tape, not duct tape. Then get some 3 inch vet wrap or
you can get that in a drug store. The kind of tape that is stretchy and only sticks to itself. First cut a length of vet wrap long enough to go around the leg
and overlap. Place it high enough so it is about a third of an inch above where the top of the boot is. Put boot on and use Duck Tape to stick to boot and and the vet wrap. I use a top layer then put a bottom tape layer to cover the first set of holes. This helps keep the sand burrs out as well. I have a hard running GSP and we hunt western Oklahoma. We have shinnery, sand burrs, yucca, cactus, plum thickets, briars, and assorted other brush. We hunted about 25 times this year and I did not lose any boots. By the way I do not stick the Duck Tape to the dogs leg or hair. We did have one boot that split along the side, but Im trying a tire patch for that. Anyway I hope this helps.

Great boots but...
These are the best dog boots Ive ever used but the rear upper extension needs to be 3-4 inches longer. The main problem with this boot is that the rear upper extension is designed to keep the back of the boot anchored to the lower leg with tape. unfortunately, over course of hours in rough terrain the tape loses adhesion and the boot pivots forward off the foot and held only by the front upper extension. If the rear extension were long enough so that in taping from the foot and up the leg, the rear extension could then be folded back down taped in place preventing the slippage.
