In this article, we will be trying out and doing a Walkee Paws review. These are dog leggings that are touted for preventing dirty Doodle legs and feet, and preventing snowballs on the legs, too. So, do they work? Let’s find out…

In case you have never heard of these before, Walkee Paws are apparently the world’s first dog leggings. They are basically dog booties with leg coverage, built in to what I would call adjustable suspenders for a dog.

I actually heard about them earlier this year, and most people were pretty ecstatic about them. These people were saying that they are really good for keeping a Doodle’s feet, paws, and legs from getting dirty, wet, or from accumulating snow balls in the winter time.

So I honestly couldn’t wait for winter to arrive so we could finally try them out. Well here we are, and we’ve tried them out!

Let’s check out the video footage of Chloe’s test drives of the Walkee Paws in fresh snow and we’ll give our thoughts after:

So the Walkee Paws come with pretty good fitting instructions.

Regardless, it still took us a few tries to really figure it out and get them fitted properly.

Walkee Paws Test Drive: Round 1

So the very first time Chloe went outside with the Walkee Paws on, they literally fell off within 10 seconds.

As a result, Chloe accumulated some of those notorious snowballs on her legs and feet.

Snowballs on Doodle Legs

The leg snowballs might be fun to look at, but just make sure they are removed as soon as possible, as they could cause splayed paws and frostbite. I’ve always just picked them off with my fingers and then rubbed a towel over her legs, but one of our instagram followers said her dogs go straight into a warm footbath to melt the snow off, which is rather clever!

Anyway, I figured that there was no way that these things could be that useless (despite the fact that I ordered a medium and received a large – #thanksAmazon).

So we made some changes by tightening up the leggings pretty significantly for round 2 of the test drive.

Round 2 was better. I sent Chloe out to do her business while wearing the leggings.

She came back within 5 minutes and…well…they fell off right as she walked in the door.

However, I was actually really impressed that her legs and feet were snowball-free, and actually pretty much dry!

Test Drive Round 3

I wasn’t quite satisfied with just 5 minutes of successful wearing time so I adjusted the fit of the leggings even more for round 3.

Round 3 was the ultimate test, as Chloe actually ran around joyfully in the snow with them on. They stayed on for at least 5 minutes, until she emerged from her secret garden with one of the legs off.

But at least it wasn’t all four legs, and so it was easy to quickly slip the legging back onto her foot so she could go play some more.

All in all, they probably stayed on her for about 15-20 minutes (which was about as much time as I wanted to be outside in the cold, anyway).

Once I figured out the correct fit for Chloe, I honestly thought they were really nice to have. They really did keep the leg snowballs away and kept her pretty much dry, too. That meant that I didn’t have to worry about her dripping all over the house or smelling like wet dog for hours.

I would also say that they were indeed easier to put on than regular dog booties. Sometimes her nails would get caught up in the legging fabric as I was putting her feet in, but I would rather deal with that than booties that fall off constantly, and again, the snowballs and general wetness associated with a long coated dog playing in the snow.

Lastly, I would say that if you do get the Walkee Paws, to make sure you order and receive the correct size. Because we got sent a size up, the booties on the leggings were definitely too loose and one of the booties on her hind foot was looking a little floppy at times.

What’s the Verdict?

I think these could definitely be a great accessory for Doods who go out in the rain our snow a lot. I think, when fitted correctly, that these will save you a ton of time when it comes to keeping your Dood’s legs and feet clean during adventures outside.

I have Walkee Paws and like you, after getting the fit right – we LOVE them! We don’t get much snow here in mid-TN, but moving back to Iowa where there is a LOT of snow.

Took Dax a few tries to be comfortable with having them on but he adjusted pretty quickly.

I would suggest Walkee Paws make the bootie part a bit smaller (they are too large) but I would like to see a Velcro wrap at top of booties so you’d have double adjustment options so pup leg can’t “fall out” of one.

Overall, one of best purchases I’ve made for my pup (the other was the LED flashing collar for when my all black pup is outside in the dark).

I didn’t purchase the Walkee Paws booties, because I live in North Idaho where we have SNOW so just covering the lower legs does me no good. Lucy, my Goldendoodle, gets covered in snowballs front and back. As you know snowballs are difficult if not impossible to remove completely. So I purchased a FouFou Dog 62557 Bodyguard Protective All-Weather Dog Pants on Amazon. The pants work GREAT, but they do not have booties attached, so Lucy comes in with her feet covered in crusted ice. I recently purchased the FouFou Dog 82545 2017 Rubber Dipped Socks. They are a bit difficult to get on Lucy (perhaps I ordered the wrong size), fortunately, she is very forgiving and lets me manipulate her body every which way until they are on. They have velcro ties around the ankle, so they do stay on…but ice builds up between the socks and the pants. I wish that FouFou Dog would make a suit with attached socks/booties that fit a 45 lb. doodle. Any suggestions? I’ve looked everywhere online and only found them for mini dogs up to 20lbs.

I also have the too large size of walkee paws and had given up on them. But out of desperation today (so muddy) I cut the straps and tied the opposite front and back straps together and they have been on her for 20 minutes of running and playing fetch in a big muddy yard. She does slip on the icy snow. But no mud balls in the floof is amazing! Maybe I’ll order the medium size.

I’ve seen lots of bad and good reviews on Walkee Paws so when Canada Pouch came out with theirs I tried to order. Sold out! I do know another owner of 2 doodles in town who got them and she said they are amazing and just loves them and her dogs are fine with them. I waited until restocked and ordered and should receive within the week! They look, to me, a better quality than the walkee paws.
