This has been a life saver. She is 14 years old and we have tile and carpet in our home. She acts like a puppy once it is applied and she knows she has traction. Love love it. Would always recommend cutting hair back in the paw area and if your dog is calm its very easy to apply. Wish glue was easier to squeeze out of tube but still love this product. We have tried the socks with rubber on the bottom and we have tried dog boots this by far is the best. Give it a try for your puppy.
