Instant Traction for Senior and Special Needs Dogs.
If your dog can walk on rugs or carpet, but struggles on slippery surfaces such as hardwood floors, ToeGrips® dog nail grips can help. The non-slip grips fit on your dog’s toenails to enable instant traction and improved mobility.
How do ToeGrips® dog nail grips work?
Dogs use their toenails for traction. They flex their paws and engage their nails like soccer cleats digging into the ground. But hard nails can’t grip hard floors. ToeGrips® dog nail grips work by allowing the toenails to grip smooth surfaces like hardwood floors.
Unlike dog socks and boots, which interfere with a dog’s paw and toenails (natural gripping mechanisms), ToeGrips® dog nail grips create a GripZone™ that works with your dog’s innate biomechanics. The GripZone™ allows the toenails to meet the floor for traction with every step…naturally.
- The non-slip nail grips fit onto your dog’s toenails to enable instant traction on hard-surface floors and stairs.
- Once placed on the toenails, ToeGrips® dog nail grips are made for indoor/outdoor use, can be worn constantly, and typically need to be replaced every one to three months.

How to measure your dog’s nails for ToeGrips® dog nail grips:
Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the midshaft of the toenail.
Step 2:Hold the floss, wrapped around the nail circumference, with one hand.
Step 3: Use a Sharpie® to mark across both pieces of floss. This will generate two points.
Step 4: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.
Step 5: Repeat for all weight-bearing nails on one front and one back paw.
Step 6: Based on the range of measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart to select the proper size. Occasionally, a dog may require a combination of two sizes.
