Follow these steps to help your dog:
1. Be sure ToeGrips are right for your dog.
ToeGrips were designed for senior, rehabilitating, and special needs dogs. Dogs that scuff/drag their paws may require affixing the ToeGrips onto the nails using super glue. ToeGrips are not intended for healthy, active dogs.
2. Select the right size.
Measuring your dog’s nails is recommended for correct sizing. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may fail to help your dog, ride up the nail, or quickly fall off. We fit them during consultation. We cannot sell these online.
3. Apply to create the GripZone.
Illustrated instructions are printed inside each package. Please keep in mind that ToeGrips must create the GripZone to enable traction. Correct placement is critical for success.
4. Monitor daily.
If neglected, ToeGrips can migrate up the nail into the skin and cause harm. Please inspect your dog’s ToeGrips and toes daily to ensure proper positioning.
5. Removing ToeGrips.
ToeGrips will wear and eventually need to be replaced. On average, ToeGrips last 1-3 months. Your dog’s size, gait, and environment will determine how long they last. ToeGrips should be removed at least monthly to inspect their condition and wear. Before replacing/reapplying the ToeGrips, your dog’s nails should also be inspected and may be trimmed.

But won’t my dog chew them off?
Because Toe Grips rest on the nail and are not in contact with sensitive tissue/skin, 97% of dogs do not seem to notice them, even dogs who are notorious for resenting things on their paws!
