Not sure about the boots but if you can get her to wear them that may solve your problem. We have wooden floors also and 2 GSDs, when my youngest was a puppy I put down cheap mats on the floor as he would slip, especially when playing with my older dog. Now, they are used to the floors and don't slip at all. I have heard of dogs really injuring themselves on slippery surfaces like wooden floors, so until she gets used to it then maybe enforce 'no play' on the floors or put down extra mats, just to be safe while she is still growing

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
