Ruffwear Summit Trex Dog Boots Review & GIveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

I’m very excited to be bringing you today’s product review, Ruffwear’s Summit Trex Dog Boots! With the nasty winter we have been dealt here in Pennsylvania I found myself wishing I had something for my paws to keep them more protected and warmer too.

Now if you own a dachshund and have ever tried boots on them, then you probably already know that getting a pair of boots to stay on our front digger paws can be a bit difficult. Because our short little legs are constructed so differently from the average dog it can be pretty hard to keep boots from slipping.

Initially when I tried out my summit trex boots I had trouble with the front ones slipping off (the back ones stayed on nice and snug since our back paws are more like an average dog’s), but mom had a great idea on how to keep them on.

You might remember that before I got my Ruffwear boots I had been wearing a pair of Pawz Boots. While technically I wouldn’t really consider these boots – as they are made out of what can best be described as a latex balloon type material and don’t really keep your paws any warmer – they proved to be the perfect boot liner!

With my Pawz boots underneath my summit trex boots on the front I was running through the snow in no time!

Ruffwear also sells a pair of boot liners that would also work well for keeping these boots on the hard-to-fit dachshunds, but at the moment the smallest size they carry was just a tad too large for me. But not to worry, because they are coming out with smaller sizes later this year….I can’t wait!

I tested out my Ruffwear boots all over the farm and in the snow and ice! These boots are designed to provide everyday traction and paw protection from extreme temperatures, abrasive surfaces, and salt or other snowmelt chemicals.

The Summit Trex boots come in lots of sizes, and you can even order them as singles to make sure they fit your dog perfectly. I’m wearing 1.75 inch boots on my front paws and 1.5 inch boots on my back paws – to insure a snug fit it’s best to make sure you measure your dog’s paws properly, which is simple with Ruffwear’s sizing video.

Now I wasn’t the only one that got to try out a pair of Ruffwear boots, my pal Trooper got to test out a pair of Grip Trex boots for his paws.

These Grip Trex dog boots are great for dogs who hike, bike, run, or explore the great outdoors with their humans. As you can see they are set a little lower on the ankle, and would be a great pair of boots for the bigger dogs since they come in larger sizes.

Trooper and I were glad to have some boots to keep our paws protected this winter, but it took us a little bit to get used to wearing something on our feet, just check out this hilarious video of our first time wearing them…

And incase you’re wondering, it didn’t take us long to get the hang of running around outside in them (especially after mom tossed us a whole bunch of cookies) and before long we didn’t even notice we were wearing them!

And now for the best part…

    Great write up on the boots. My question is who makes the yellow jacket he is wearing in the photos, looks like a well designed coat. A link or write up to the manufacturer would be great.
