Traction for senior dogs, you may need just one pair for the back paws, or your dog may need traction on all four paws. Power Paws give dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, and other neuro-skeletal issues the power to stand, the power to stop, and the power to go! See Testimonials for Senior Dogs.

Dogs wearing Power Paws socks on tile floor

Slippery floors. If your dog (no matter how young or old) runs through the house and skids on your floors, put Power Paws on all four feet. Power Paws are also useful for dogs that don’t like, or are afraid to walk on hardwood and tile.  Power Paws make movement easier, increasing your dog’s confidence and quality of life. See our Testimonials about Hardwood & Slippery Floors.

Protect against scratches on hardwood floors. For this application, Power Paws should be put on all four feet. Refinishing hardwood is expensive and time consuming. Prevent nail marks with Power Paws.

Fashion and warmth. Definitely put Power Paws on all four paws. All dogs enjoy looking good, and some dogs dress up daily. Power Paws come in colors and designs that compliment every dog’s style and personality.

Wound protection. If the wound is on the paw, put a Power Paws sock on the injured paw. Power Paws are so soft and comfortable, so dogs tend to leave them (and the injured foot) alone. You may be able to remove the e-collar – a benefit for dog and owner! Many vets and pet owners have achieved very good results. Vet Aid Wound Care Spray or Foam can be used with Power Paws for great results!

“Thank you so much for this wonderful product. Alexander loves them! He had such a bad time slipping on the hardwood floors.”

Power Paws can be used OUTDOORS for…

Protection against salt, snow, and icePower Paws have proven to be quite useful in these winter conditions. Spray Power Paws with a couple coats of waterproofing spray (like Scotchguard). Let the socks dry, then enjoy the outdoors with your dog!  No snow clumping in the pads, no ice cutting the feet, no salt getting in the wounds, and no frostbite.  Power Paws dog socks are machine washable.

Protection against extreme heat.  Power Paws protect against burns from hot pavement, sand, etc. Summer heat does not affect the grip material, and the socks are an insulator from the heat.

Power Paws can be used for paw protection for wounds

A barrier against allergens.  Many dogs are allergic to dust, dirt, grass, and pollen. Licking the paws, and biting the feet are a sign that your dog has these allergies.  Power Paws can help!  When the dog comes back inside, remove the Power Paws to remove the problem!  Your dog has no need to lick his feet.  He won’t ingest what he is allergic to, and nothing has to heal!

To help prevent your dog from slipping in moving vehicles, mobile homes, RVs and boats, Power Paws help to give dogs stability and grip. On a boat, they also protect the teak decks from scratches!

Dog Socks vs. Dog Shoes & Boots

Power Paws are good for dogs who slip on floors or need paw protection.

Power Paws dog socks are the opposite of dog shoes and boots. Power Paws are light and breathable. They are made of elastic and cotton for comfort and fit, they are breathable, machine washable, and they conform to the dog’s foot.  They bend, so your dog can walk normally.  Power Paws use elastic to stay in place. Even the grippy material on the bottom is made for comfort… it will never get hard and it has no sand and no grit.

Shoes and boots, on the other hand, are heavy, bulky, and they tend to not fit well. They breed bacteria because they don’t breathe, they aren’t machine washable, and they rely on buckles, belts, or Velcro to stay on — and dogs do not like those.  In addition, they don’t bend, so your dog has to walk like Frankenstein.

Power Paws are the opposite of shoes: dogs adapt to them quickly and more than 95% of dogs like them!

Our Power Paws page will help you choose the best fitting and best looking socks for your dog.

The package arrived today! Rosie, my 6 1/2 yrs. old Shepherd with hip dysplasia is normally very difficult to fit for shoes, but these fit right out of the package. They’re wonderful. The rubber traction keeps her from sliding on my laminate flooring, and they really make her tail wag! (*_*)
