Get the Right Size Power Paws
With the right size, the benefits of Power Paws dog socks will be beyond your wildest dreams! We will work with you to get that feeling! Power Paws fit virtually all dogs. Our first and most important comment on sizing is simple… just as not all people in your family have the same size feet, not all dogs of a particular breed have the same size feet!
First, choose your style: Power Paws come in TWO STYLES — Regular and Greyhound. Most dogs will wear our Regular style.
Our Greyhound style is meant for dogs with hare feet — “two center digits being longer than the inside and outside toes and a lack of arching in the toes resulting in the feet appearing longer”. Typical breeds with hare feet include Italian Greyhounds, Miniature Poodles, Whippets, Australian Shepherds, Standard Poodles and Greyhounds, but any individual dog may have hare feet.
Our weight and breed guides (below) and our printable foot print guides can help give you the best fit for your dog.
Be sure to print the Paw Print Size Guides (to the right) at 100%!

Breed & Weight Guide for Power Paws REGULAR Style
Our size guides are based on averages. Your dog’s feet may be special. For example, a 45-pound Basset Hound often wears an XL, not M as weight suggests, because Basset Hounds have wide feet.

Did you know that a dog foot that is not a hare foot is called a cat foot?!
Do I Have the Right Size?
If the size is right, Power Paws will stay on when playing, climbing stairs, walking, etc. A proper fit is a snug, stretched sock allowing the elastic to hold the sock in place.
- A good fit is snug. You can put a finger in the sock. It will stay in place while playing, walking, climbing stairs.
- The sock is too small if with your fingers inside to stretch the sock, you can’t put it on your dog’s foot no matter how much you stretch it.
- The sock is too large if it flops, falls off, sags.
- The sock is close to fitting if it twists but doesn’t fall off immediately. If it rotates so the grip is on the side or top of try the washing instructions on the Q&A page. If this doesn’t help, call us for an exchange.
