Ruffwear Summit Trex dog boot and Climate Changer jacket — 44 Comments

  1. So precious, such great little models of health, joy and a lovely product!!! Our local pooches MUST wear these booties on days like today: -40! YES! OH Mary, I’m freezing, and I need to go to work. AH!

    Have a warm day! Anita

  2. I’m impressed that Torrey appreciates the dog boots! And it looks like they actually stay on. It’s frustrating to return home after an outing with only three boots!

    • I haven’t had one fall off yet. As long as the velcro strap is good and tight, it’s all good. And she runs all over in them.

  3. Love the orange jacket, looks real comfy and easy to wear, but we don’t do coats. We are really interested in the shoes. They look great! Mom looked at those last year for Katie but they were expensive and she wasn’t sure if they would be good or not. Right now, paws crossed, she isn’t dragging any paws so she isn’t wearing shoes, but if that starts again, I think we will get her a pair of these. Great review.

  4. That is some sexy gear! So styling! Great review; thanks for sharing these super products.

    And (be-lated) Happy New Year!

  5. OMD Roxy your fleece is like my fuschia one! You’re right they are really functional and practical, mom loves mine, more than me though. And Torrey, what an adventurous outdoor dog you are, so stylish in your booties. Love the pictures! Love Dolly

  6. i REMEMBER WHEN I RODE MY HORSE YEARS AGO UP ON THE PAYSON MOUNTAINS. THE DOGS THAT WENT ALONG THE TRAILS WOULD GET SORE FEET. THEY ALSO RAN INTO PORUPINE CRITTERS! A TRIP TO THE VET WAS IN ORDER. THE BOOTS SEEM LIKE THEY WOULD REALLY HELP OUT ANY DOG IN TERRAIN THAT COULD CAUSE HARM. ROXYS JACKET IS SWEET.

  7. Oh wow! I need to get those Trex Boots for our camping and hiking trips! I could’ve used them this past weekend when we were camping/hiking…the forest had huge burrs all over the place and Ma was getting nervous that I would step on them and really hurt myself. I love the jacket…especially since it comes in my signature color of orange. Tell Roxy she looks fabulous in that color!

  8. We are big fans of Ruffwear! Boca has one of their coats, and as she is also in need of some booties I am going to check out the Summit Trex. Great review and beautiful pictures!

  9. The boots complete Torrey’s ensemble…the match her fur! I can see how great they would be in that terrain. Jack is starting to get some arthritis in his paws, so I think I’m going to have to get some of these.

  10. I’m impressed that Torrey loves her shoes so soon after getting them. So many dogs have a big adjustment period and some never seem to like them.

    Maybe Torrey is smart enough to realize the boots mean more fun?

    And that jacket is adorable. I’ve wrestled getting some of my foster pups into coats and would have loved a side opening like that. If I win the lottery, I think I’ll buy a few dozen for the local shelter to send along with their short coated foster dogs.

    • I think she does realize they mean fun. It’s no fun getting hurt feet while trying to have a good time. The jacket design, is awesome.

  11. You’re so lucky that Torrey has no problem wearing boots. Those are such great pictures and she looks SO happy! I love the fleece jacket on Roxy, she’s a wonderful little model. I think the zipper is a great idea for short-haired dogs, but I can see it being more difficult for dogs like Daisy with longer, curly hair that’s everywhere. Even with that bit of fabric underneath, it can get caught either during the zipping or at the top when first putting it together. But it looks like it was absolutely made for Roxy! :)

  12. We are huge Ruffwear fans! Their harnesses are by far my favorite, and Nola has the same jacket as Roxy (in grey, though). It’s the perfect fit and so easy to put on.

  13. We LOVE any Ruffwear products here at our pack! So far, the pups have acquired their awesome Cloud Chaser Jackets & Top Rope Collars! Next on our to-get-from-Ruffwear list are their boots! ~Very nice review!~

  14. Very nice! We’ve always been a fan of their products and are glad to see that have products for the giant breeds!

  15. We are considering these booties for some of the really cold days. Such as today, -41 Celsius with windchill.

  16. Oh my dog, they both look SO cute and happy in their new gear! I bet I could never ger Rita to look that happy in those boots! They look pawfect for the desert!

  17. I could see us having a use for both of these products! Have you had good luck with the boots staying on once you put them on? That’s sort of become one of my litmus tests. We had one pair of boots that I had to stop every three paces to put one back on and it sort of defeated the purpose. I’m also picky about the jackets we get and the number one strike against them is if I have to bend the dogs’ legs to get them into the armholes. Once they start feeling the effects of arthritis, it’s not fun to have to bend those legs. I can’t wait to see what else you have to show us!

    • These would be perfect for the greyhounds. The jacket does not require any leg bending to get on, which is why it’s so great for Roxy. Old age has her with sore legs and back. And the boots stay on. The velcro strap can be tightened down really good. The first time I had them on Torrey, one did come off. But it was user error on my part as I didn’t have it on tight enough. Now, I know to tighten everything good and she runs all over in them and they never come off.

  18. Both of these products look perfect for me!

    The zipper up the side seems like a great alternative to some of the other straps, velcros, and top-zipper solutions we’ve dealt with. Thanks for sharing! *wags* – Gilligan from WagsAhoy.com

  19. I saw this posted on Facebook and have been meaning to get over and check them out. Question about the boots, do you think their feet will get too hot? Is there some ventilation? I’ve heard dogs sweat through their paws which makes me wonder about using them in the heat of summer. What are your thoughts on that?

  20. we have both of these, and LOVE them. The orange boots are super cute with the orange coat.
    We’re getting lots of use from the Summit Trex boots now to help with snow, ice and salt. We also have the Polar Trex boots, but the smallest size for those was still a bit too big for my dog’s rear paws. This coat is really great too.
