Talking Booties for the dogs

I am currently putting engineered hardwood floors down in my house and have looked at different options to keep the dogs from scratching them up too much. I can keep Cody's nails fairly short but Honey is a *itch to try and cut/dremel her nails...so her's are average right now.

Any recommendations on dog booties? I bought a cheap set at Petsmart and she actually kept them on but they looked like they were slowly going to come off even though I put them on tight (I think). Anyways, any recommendations or experience with booties? I don't need sled dog booties but something that will stay on her feet and actually help with traction. Thanks so much!

Check out Ruff Wear. They have a few different kinds that look nice.

I never thought about the soft paws thing. Do they stay on even when they go outside?

Yeah they should, as long as the dog doesn't chew them off. A lot of dogs will leave them alone though.

I went ahead and ordered the soft paws. If they don't work I am only out about 20 bucks. Thanks.
