Did not Last Long

They're OK if your dog does not use them as a chew toy. I had a groomer trim my Shih Tzu's nails and followed the direction on the box. But my dog is chewing her nails every chance she gets and has gotten them off often (swallowed a couple of them). Easy to apply though.

I have a 25 pound puggle (Pug/Beagle mix I saved from the Humane Society:) and he still jumps on my legs when I walk in the door. I groom him regularly, but my legs were still getting scratched when he was happy to see me. These nail covers have been a lifesaver. If he is bored, he will use them as a chew toy and has gotten them off on occasion, but overall a great product!

Saved my wood floor and leather couch

These are the greatest invention since declawing! My cocker spaniels like to "fluff" my leather couch and dig in when rounding corners on my wood floor. With SoftPaws they no longer do damage to either. I had my vet trim their nails and apply the SoftPaws. They did not seem at all bothered by them and have not chewed them off.

These caps are wonderful. My dog was ruining my hardwood floors in my new house but these have definitely been a life saver. I really hope my local store in Johnson City, Tennessee will stock this item soon!!!!!! I believe it would be a huge asset to anyone with inside dogs. It also helps on other flooring.

Wood Floor Woes

We recently had our woods floors refinished and the thought of having them scratched up again by our three dogs was not a pretty one! The Soft Claws have been on their nails for two weeks now and the floors are still scratchless! Only one of the three dogs chewed his back nail caps off, but his front paws remain untouched. Putting them on is a little bit of an ordeal, but you are able to leave them on for up to 12 weeks. I don't recommend that long since you will need to trim their nails more frequently, but THEY WORK! Petsmart should offer Soft Claws as one of their grooming services if they are smart. Be sure you order the right size. Measuring is well worth the effort when they fit perfectly. If they are too small, it is difficult to get on the nail without annoying the dog. Enjoy your scratchless floors!

I purchased this product to apply to my dogs front nails. We walk daily. She drags her paws when she walks. She has a few of her nails down to the quick. I applied the caps as directed. The caps stayed on her nails less than 24 hours. I applied nail caps a second time using more glue. They didn't last 12 hours. Unfounately her nails aren't very long. The quality of the product seemed to be good. It just didn't work for this application.

Lasts Longer than Expected - Easy to apply

I half expected this product not to work but I was running out of options. I was ecstatic that it exceeded my expectations! My 2 yr old Golden Retriever was ruining our new hardwood floors. She dug into the floor trying to get traction to run across the room to greet us. My husband wanted to make her a full-time outside dog and I sought a compromise. This product saved the day. Applying the tips were easy. I distracted her with a bowl of food and snuck them right on. I gently pushed them up to ensure a snug fit and make sure the glue worked its way up the nail. In the last 4 weeks, she has never even noticed they were on. I do not know if smaller dogs would notice them or not, but the price is worth the trial compared the cost of constant professional trimming. My husband has even taken her jogging a few times and only once after a run on the asphalt did a nail come off. I went ahead and put 3 on each of her hind paws as well with the same positive results. It also makes her nails softer if she gets excited and jumps on us. She is not allowed to dig in the yard, so I cannot comment on how well these would hold up with a digger. That may require more frequent maintenance. She is an average sized Golden Retriever and the XX-L size fit her well without requiring any trimming or pre-fitting. I made sure to have her nails trimmed by a groomer just prior to applying. I only wish they would include more than 2 tubes of glue as filling up each nail 1/3 with glue goes quickly. I am sure you can replace it with regular nail glue or superglue.
