More about dog boots

  • Hi,Having trawled through the huge amount of useless expensive dog boots out there.I would like to recommend a bootie maker to you she is marvelous the boots fit are made to measure and stay on. They are really hard-wearing and not too expensive. She can even make them for corgis.
    The site is http://tammyandteddys.com/ .
    I have a dearly loved GSD I just came across your web site as a link from my vets (valley)

I have invested in a rig for him from Eddies Wheels which he loves and I can fully recommend, he uses the hartman hip harness when he is not in his wheels which is another brilliant invention and, while he had some feeling in his feet the active boots where ideal and I still use them as a variation to the Tammy and teddy boots. Hope this helps other disabled dog owners.Cerys
