Dr. Buzby's TOEGRIPS®

ToeGrips® for dogs protect your older dog from slipping on hard slippery surfaces and stairs, because nothing should separate you.

Slipping, sliding, barely able to get up on hard, slippery floors or stairs? Handicap due to blindness, amputation or wheelchair?

Do you know such a dog or do you immediately think of your own dog?

Then ToeGrips® are the right solution! ToeGrips® are small rubber rings that adapt to the dog's claws and are worn permanently indoors and outdoors; they provide instant grip and confidence. Slipping, sliding, not being able to get up, especially on slippery floors, are now a thing of the past. The ToeGrips®, which last an average of 8-10 weeks, were developed by the American veterinarian Dr Julie Buzby. 



How do ToeGrips® work?

Dogs use their claws for traction. They bend their paws and use the claws like studs on football boots, which press into the ground and provide grip. 

But on hard, slippery floors, the claws are of little help and the dog mainly uses its muscle power here. If this is missing, the paws slip away. This is where ToeGrips® provide instant grip.

Stopper socks and dog shoes cannot do this, as they prevent natural contact with the ground.

Are ToeGrips® right for my dog?

Here is an easy way to determine if ToeGrips® are suitable for your dog. Answer these two questions:

  • Does your dog have difficulty walking on hard surfaces due to age, arthritis, injury, surgery or disability?
  • Can your dog walk on carpets or grass?

If you answered "yes" to these two questions, then ToeGrips® can improve your dog's quality of life!
