If you can work with your dog’s feet despite his/her objections, then you should be fine. If you can’t handle your dog’s paws, realistically you will not be able to apply ToeGrips by yourself.
If you know your dog is going to be difficult to work with, we recommend the following:
-Start with a tired dog – apply the grips after a long walk or play session.
-Enlist a competent assistant to distract your dog and help stabilize each leg as you are working with that paw.
-Be prepared for the job. Watch our instructional videos in advance.
-Approach the task with a confident, calm attitude.
If you are unable or unwilling to work with your dog’s paws, you won’t be able to measure for, or apply, Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips. In this case, consider asking your veterinary office if their staff is willing to help. ToeGrips are sold by thousands of veterinarians worldwide.
