Help For an Old Dog Slipping on Wood Floors

by Karen Luther on August 1, 2011

This is a testimonial from one of our customers: “I never thought of using booties in the house, but the rubber bottoms really help 13-year-old Rusty get up on our slick wooden floors.  The mesh tops allow them to breath, which is critical for long-term use.” If your dog is having similar issues to Rusty, be sure to take a look at our Meshies by Barko Booties.

I have a 15 yr old cocker spaniel and she slips too. When she eats I have to help her even though I put a towel down so her feet won’t slip as much. I live in Rio de Janeiro and the weather is humid so I feel the booties wouldn’t work. I even thought of reflooring my whole apt with anti slip flooring but am trying to find an easier and less costly method. There is a spray I’ve read and will order it to try it but worried about an allergic reaction. I really liked the film of your dog and inspired me to get those booties. Thank you! Mariana and kynee (my dog)

Hi Mariana! I’m so glad we are able to help you and Kynee. I’m very confident the Meshies will work with her. Don’t forget to send photos to

My dog Ben is 18 and we just got woken up to the sounds of Ben screaming. He was stuck in the corner of a room and his legs were sticking out sideways very awkwardly. This was terrifying. We’ve been using a mat by his dog dish on the hardwood but I think we’ll need something to help him get up assuming there aren’t other issues. Later than morning he was struggling to get up again and shaking like a leaf, poor guy. I hope something like this will help him and it’s not a more serious issue.

Poor Ben! Have you tried dog booties for him yet?
