Hmm. Do you want them just for regular walking or for snow and ice?
I know lots of dogs who have dew claws and wear the boots without any problem, our Wyatt included. The boots don’t seem to irritate them at all.
I see that our Fairy Vet Mother is chiming in. Thanks Dr. Pam! I know she has some input for boots like Therapaws.
It can’t hurt to try them, you can always return if they don’t work out. Whatever product you choose let us know how it goes.

I used Ruffwear for my first Mastiff Tazzie and they worked well. My current Mastiff Julian is not a tripawd but needs booties because he has pressure sores on his feet; most of the ones I found even XXL did not fit over his dewclaw so I had to cut the side of the bootie to fit (UltraPaws fit him best). Finally I measured his foot and contacted Therapaw and now he has custom “shoes” that are durable and fit him perfectly!
