Well I just bought these a couple weeks ago. 30 day return policy, so I said, its not going to snow for 2 more months. Had a heck of a time finding anything last year. Bought Muttlucks 50 bucks plus tax. Super hard to get on and they don't stay on. Well maybe a minute. Brutal.
Loved the dollar store fake neoprene booties and so did she...but only lasted a few days. Salt chewed them up. So bought a bunch packages at a time cost was likely same or more over the season....But I found these and they seem to have the ease of dollar store ones, but durability of muttlucks. Slightly higher price point.
Wish the store I got from offered in pink though

I'm going to keep these in mind for the winter. It's super finicky here in MD on whether or not it's going to actually snow, but I'd rather have them than deal with whining puppies and bloody paw pads from ice.

I’ve had the best luck with these, for just avoiding getting salt on their feet. They’re easy to put on and last a while with just normal walking. I usually just buy a few packages per year for 3 dogs. I do also have a few different pairs of ruffwear boots, which I really like. I tried muttlucks once. Lost one in the snow during our first outing.

I had a good experience using Ruffwear Polar Trex in snowy conditions.
