While trying to give her dog Moqui a drink, Liz emptied half of her water bottle into a plastic bag and held it while the Rhodesian Ridgeback took a few slurps. Moqui then walked away panting, and Liz was left holding the bag—she couldn't set it down without losing the water and she didn't want to dump what was left back into her water bottle. "You need to do something about this," Liz said, challenging Patrick to develop a solution.
Patrick Kruse was the right person to ask. As a kid he constructed packs for his dog out of army surplus gas mask bags, using them on backpack trips in Northern California's Trinity Alps. As a young adult, he sailed for several years as crew on charter boats in the Caribbean and Central America where being resourceful was a necessity. Patrick's interest in kayaking lead him to start Salamander Paddle Gear acquainting him with numerous technical fabrics. With this unique mix of knowledge and experience Patrick developed The Quencher™, the original collapsible food and water bowl for dogs—and the solution to Liz and Moqui's drinking problem.
In 1994, after 16 months of research and development and product testing, Ruff Wear made its enthusiastically welcomed debut at an Outdoor Retailer trade show with The Quencher™. Since, it has won praise from thirsty dogs and been in a range of publications. "They were impressed with the simplicity, quality and function of The Quencher™ and wanted to see what other solutions we could come up with," Patrick says.
Ruff Wear now offers a full line of innovative performance dog gear. In addition to collapsible bowls, the company produces a full line of dog-related equipment designed to enhance the interaction between humans and dogs. A brief listing of gear includes dog packs, dog boots, dog harnesses, dog coats, and dog life jackets.
"We want to enhance the experience of all dogs and their two legged companions," Patrick says. Besides those who are active with their pets, trainers, working dogs, Search and Rescue teams, Canine Companions and Guide Dog Users all have become Ruff Wear supporters and each present specific challenges in product development. "My needs pale in comparison to those who depend on their dogs for assistance," he says. "The specific tasks and companionship dogs provide is really incredible. It puts a smile on my face when people appreciate the simple design approach that we build into our gear to address complex tasks."
"We’ve always been oriented toward products that will enhance and assist the interaction between dogs and humans. And that has always been and will continue to be our motivation."

Very good boots. The sheer entertainment factor alone when first putting these on the dog is worth the money but...once he got used to them, he was running and playing like normal outside. We actually got them to help protect our hardwood floors, which it seems these would do well. I cant really rate the comfort obviously, but they don't seem to bother our dog at all. I'd say go for it and give them a try if you are considering it.

I purchased these dog booties for a winter hiking trip in the White Mountains. My dog is getting old, and has a hard time in the snow. She gets big ice nuggets that form in between her toes, and will stop walking to chew on them. Unfortunately, she really hates wearing the dog booties, and would refuse to get out of the car when they were on. She would also try to kick them off or stop to chew on them. They did seem to help prevent ice buildup on her feet while they were still on, but ice would accumulate around the tops of the booties and this seemed to really bother her. I would not recommend these for snow, and wish that I had purchased something that was insulating. I did think she looked really cute with them on, though!

We purchased these boots for our poodle who weighs around 8 lbs. Unfortunately we couldn't tighten the ankle straps any tighter without risking cutting off circulation. And if we did leave them anything short of extremely tight, the boots would slip right off. It's a shame since the boots look durable and like a quality product.

These canine boots are well-conceived and a big help in a couple of ways. Our 13 year old Golden Retriever is now very loose in the hips, making it difficult to keep his footing on our hardwood floors. We purchased these to help him gain some traction, and they work great for that. Additionally, they are good for keeping his feet dry in wet weather, though when he comes in after trips into the wet grass, they need to be dried before they have the needed traction inside. Be sure to read the fit instructions on the Ruffwear website before choosing a size for your dog. I was shocked that our 80 lb. boy wore such a small size as he measured, but it was correct. It is also important to cinch the velcro tight enough to keep them on straight. Our Golden Retriever adapted to them immediately, but please note that there are hilarious You-Tube videos of dogs that had a longer time getting used to them. As always, Zappos saved us the shipping & handling & sales tax, so I was thrilled when I discovered they carried these Bark'n Boots. Jeeves may want to get his own VIP account!

I had high hopes for these boots. I had to try these for my 35 pounder because the Ruffwear Grip Tex boots do not come in small enough a size for him (smallest is XXS). So I ordered him these boots in XXXS. They were hard to get on because the stretchy top part was too tight, then the paw sock was too round, and not fitting enough. They came off easily. So I tried the next size up, XXS, and those were definitely too big. It is possible that my dog's paws just are not shaped for this style. He is a Shihtzu/German Shepherd mix so perhaps he has odd-sized paws. My other dog has the Grip Tex (they come in her size), so in comparison I think the Skyliners are definitely not as padded, and honestly kind of cheap feeling. I do, however, think this would be a better option than cheap boots sold at pet stores. The brand has a good reputation, so it might be worth a shot for discerning dog owners.
