Has anyone discovered some type of socks/slippers that actually stay on your dog's feet?

 

Zoey is my little diva that loves her clothes.  It has been a little chilly for us lately and I pulled out some socks for her.  They didn't bother her at all, but slid off pretty quickly.

I'm still trying to find some that don't involve getting my face clawed off when I put them ON my dog's feet!


Put a sane man alone in a room with a teacosy, and it is only a matter of time until he puts it on his head.

I have a pair of boots my little guy. He walks SUPER funny until we get outside and then he is fine, I have noticed I have to make sure the velcro is super tight for them to stay on. Have also thought about sewing them directly to a pair of his jammies but I am not sure if that would work or not, when I try it i will let you know.

You have given me an idea.  Living in S. FL, I wouldn't want socks permanently attached to a pair of jammies and, I would want the rubber grippers on the bottom of the socks because all my floors are tile.

 

What if, we attach Velcro to the cuff of the jammies (the softer side) and the socks (the rougher side).  I'm thinking I might need to get a size larger in the socks to compensate for the length of the legs and reach the cuff.  This way, one can use the socks when needed; and when not needed, they don't have to be attached.

This made me LMAO!  Fortunately, Zoey likes her clothes.

Dmasson,

That is a good idea! I wonder if Velcro could work here in central Iowa with the snow we get... I may have to try that!

Davyde,

Not sure what to do about actually putting them on, I am lucky CJ lets me put them on without a problem. I have to make sure they are tight though or he gets them off while he runs outside.

He has 1 foot that bothers him in the snow so I always put that one one first

Little Zoey is adorable in her pink jammies. I love in KS and my Mazee hates wet cold feet. She isn't crazy about clothes but doesn't claw my eyes out. Lol. I tried the Velcro booties on her but they came right off. I couldn't get them right enough. I would love any suggestions also. The Velcro to the jammies is a wonderful idea. Plus...where do you all get the jammies? Or do you make them yourselves? I definitely need to get Mazee some

I used to use two sandwich bags attached with masking tape with our golden retriever.  he would just lay down and let me bag him up, then would hold still when he came back in, so I could cut them off.  This was when our yard was more mud than grass.

 

Max, on the other hand, being the delicate snowflake that he is, (cresties are special, dont'cha know) refuses to wear anything on his feet.  Or allow his feet to be touched.  or water to touch his feet.  Mud, on the other paw, is just fine.  he will come in covered.  (and doesn't understand when I pick him up and take him straight into the tub....)


beware, for beyond there be dragons

Exactly mud is different. Bella loves hiking but she's such a princess that she will come to a dead stop if something gets stuck in her fur until it is removed. Then one day, we're on a trail and it turned to complete muddy pit and there's Bella trotting along like nothing was wrong lol. Guess she thought she was getting a complimentary mud bath since you know how fickle cresteds are about their skin :-)

I got my first pairs of jammies off this site (about 8 years ago).  They were custom made and I absolutely loved them!  When I got Zoey and was looking for girly jammies, I couldn't find the same maker.  Long story short, I found http://www.fitwarm.com/ off of Amazon.com.  They are from China and it takes a little longer to get them, but they fit the Cresteds perfectly, are reasonably priced and (for the most part) I have been very happy with their products.

This is Zoey's favorite pair of jammies. http://www.fitwarm.c...thes-pink.html 

I have to think it is because every time we go into the pet store and she is wearing them, everyone makes a big deal out of her.

Mine never wear footwear, but just a thought that snaps (aka poppers) might be better than velcro. and much quicker to apply.
