Skid boots/wrist (pastern) wraps for dogs..

Ok if this outta the question ridiculous just say so..


But a couple of my dogs are really rough on their feet. And the places suffering the most damage is the back of their pasterns the spot just after the "palm" pad and the smaller pad on the backside of the pastern. This is during workouts/runs/flirting ect.. they are bad about slidding and skidding causing them to tear or scrape up that part of their foot. It's not like they limp or complain about it.. but I don't like it... I've even had it happen in grass! But it was more like a burn or blister than a scrape.

Not to mention going down through the woods and trails and all over everywhere I take em, they encounter many different types of terrain. So a lot of them are definately rougher than grass..

I've seen leg boots and wraps for horses to keep them from cutting themselves up in that area by overstridding, skid stops, or just a good stumble.. is there something similar for dogs? Would something like wrist wraps, the way an athlete might do, be of benefit?

I feel like this might be a dumb idea all together, but if it helped?

Not a dumb idea at all. I have a dog here who has the most horrible feet ever, anything that can go wrong will go wrong and he gets those scraps constantly.

Ive never seen anyone use wraps like what you are talking about, most just use boots.. interesting topic nonetheless.

Thanks Pookie.. And I used wraps vs boots on a horse I used to have because they offered support as well as protection, but depending on the horse I usually use boots. I have the lil bootie type things, but they don't seem to care for them... I was thinking maybe something vet wrap.. It's flexible enough to mold with the shape of their leg/pastern area....?

Id just think it would roll up on their legs if the surface is harder and they slide on it repeatedly and stuff..? Idk worth a try though, couldnt hurt. It might work honestly.

Try it and let me know lol I might have to try it for my gimp dog lol

Ok.. Just tried it with some flirt work.. and.. Well I have to say i am impressed.. It faired better than I thought. LIke you I thought it'd roll up.. But it stayed inplace pretty well. I did three or four wraps coming just to the large palm pad and went up about a wrap and a half from there (looks like leg warmers lol) then I cut lil dew claw holes in it to help it keep from sliding up and for comfort.. She walked like a moron at first LMAO and was thinking about chewing them off, but before she could get started I brought out the flirt pole and she regained her usual pace and forgot about em after a minute or so.. The first layer has some wear and tear, but it it's in place and she is scrape free!

This was obviously a baby test.. I'd like to see it after a full work out.. But it's not like I'd leave em on her all day anyway.. I'd re-wrap with every workout.

Thats very cool!! I might have to dig out some wrap when I take the mutt to the park and try it out.

Good first trial was a success!
