Power Paws – these paws are made for walkin
My senior dog has trouble getting up from our tile floor. We have tried various approaches to helping her with this problem including keeping her in a portion of our home where there is more carpet or putting heavy boots on her that she never liked. So when the folks at Woodrow Wear offered for us to sample their Power Paws, which are non-slip socks for dogs that provide traction, I jumped at the opportunity to try them on my dog. They arrived and immediately I noticed a few things. They were colorful and had some real traction (tacky and sticky) on the bottom of the sock. The only thing that concerned me is they looked so small even though the one’s supplied were for a large dog which my dog was. In speaking with the owner and inventor of the company, Lorraine Walston, she advised me the Power Paws stretch and thus are able to slip on and stay on in a secure manner. Sure enough
they went on without a hitch (just be careful of the dew claws) and stayed on without slipping off. My dog immediately tried to get up, albeit a bit awkwardly at first, and you could see she realized she had some extra support now helping her. I watched her as a well content smile come over her as I sensed she felt she had gained some control over her life again. Instead of the slippery floors dictating her she could now get up with relative ease. I saw this within the first few minutes of putting the socks on. These Power Paws come in many different colors and sizes and are only $19.99 per set of 4 socks.

I can honestly say the Power Paws product deserves a 4 paw rating
