Toe Grips

In 2012, Dr Julie Snyder founded Dr. Buzby’s ToeGrips for Dogs to market nonslip toenail grips for senior and special needs dogs who struggle on slippery floors.

Dogs have the natural ability to walk on any surface. If slipping, they just need a little help on hardwood or tile floors. ToeGrips create a “Grip Zone” where the toenail meets the floor to provide traction with each step.

Dogs flex their paws and engage their nails like soccer cleats digging into the ground. Unlike dog sock and dog boot products, which shut down the dog’s natural gripping mechanism; ToeGrips grab the floor, providing instant traction to help your senior or special needs dog walk without slipping.” -Julie Buzby, DVM
