Dog Bootie Sizing Info
Booties by Dogbooties.com are built with a slight taper to the toe. This reduces the floppiness of excess fabric at the toe and a better fit on the paw is achieved.
To measure, have the dog stand on a tape measure and measure a front foot at the widest part, as you would measure the width of your own foot.
- XXXSmall = 1 1/2 in. across the widest part, 3 1/2 in. tall.
- XXSmall = 1 3/4 in. across the widest part, 4 1/4 in. tall.
- XSmall = 2 1/4 in. across the widest part, 5 in. tall.
- Small = 2 1/2 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- Medium = 2 3/4 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- Large = 3 in. across the widest part, 5 1/2 in. tall.
- XLarge = 3 1/2 in. across the widest part, 7 in. tall.
Remember, these measurements are only a guide. Measure the paw and select the size that most closely matches your measurement. Our booties are wider at the top which allows them to be put on easily.
If you have ordered from us before, it’s easy to determine what size bootie you currently have. Look at the color of the hook velcro. If it’s black, that means it’s xxxsmall, white means xxsmall, yellow means xsmall, pink means small, neon green means medium, orange means large and blue means xlarge.
Please call us if you have questions about sizing at 907-770-1796. We can assist you in selecting the correct size booties and, believe it or not, it really is easier than it seems.
** A Common Question** WHAT IS THE CLOSURE WRAP? This is the VELCRO® Brand Fastener flap that secures the bootie around the dog’s leg. This is easily seen at the top of the bootie. It’s the strap of velcro that wraps around the bootie to keep it in place. HOOK WRAP means the hook, or rough and bristly side of the velcro is used to make the wrap. LOOP WRAP means the soft and fuzzy side is used. VELSTRETCH® Brand Fastener WRAP is a special product. It resembles the loop side of normal velcro as it is soft and fuzzy but, even better, it has a built-in stretch.
In our opinion, VELSTRETCH® Brand Fastener makes the best closure for booties. It has stretch built in and the tension can be adjusted for the best fit. It is a quality closure that stays put. Some bootie makers use a cheaper, inferior, off-brand closure that resembles fuzzy elastic. There’s no comparison between the two. We’ve seen it – we’d never use it.
