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?

Diagram of a dog's nail wearing a ToeGrip® dog nail grip and showing how the non-slip grip makes contact with the floor to create a GripZone™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.
