Our little dogs have a tough time gaining traction on our hardwood floor. Philomena, the Miniature Pinscher, flies around the floor like a Formula One racecar with no brakes. To her credit, she will use soft objects to slow herself down. She will leap across the floor onto her bed which is against the wall in an attempt to stop the forward motion. Chachala, our Chihuahua, will slip and slide when she tries to gain speed. Our dog’s mobility truly worries us both, as we are always reminding the girls to take in easy and slow down.
Needless to say, we jumped at the chance to test out Power Paws. Basically they are socks with rubber treads to increase grip.
We received the packages of Power Paws and they are sooo cute!
Chachala is a fashionista, so she was the first to choose which pair of Power Paws she wanted to try.
Donning the Power Paws was easiest when we rolled them inside out over our index finger and thumb then gently holding the sides of the paw and rolling it up over the paw. It was a little tricky until we got our groove, then we got it down. This was the result:
They looked adorable!
Function definitely met form. The Power Paws kept the dogs from sliding on the floor. Although they took a few moments to adjust to having the Power Paws on, they didn’t slide a bit once they started walking around. Cha wore hers into her bed and one came off from grabbing the pile fleece in the bed but she modeled the Power Paws and trotted while we told her how pretty she looked.
The Power Paws would also come in handy if one of the dogs paws were injured, as topical medicines and dressings could be protected. They would be very good to have on hand for any breed of dog.
We believe that with continued positive condition our dogs could wear the Power Paws on a day to day basis and enjoy the benefits of not sliding around on the floor. Whether or not you have non-carpeted flooring, Power Paws are good to have in your emergency bag to assist with dressing hurt paws and recommended retail price is $19.99.
One lucky reader will win a set of Power Paws.
