Make Slippery Floors, Stairs Safer with Puppy Treads Traction Decals

Slippery floors are one of the scariest parts of a Tripawd’s life, which is why we’re always looking for better ways to add traction to slick surfaces. If you’re tired of placing no-slip throw rugs everywhere, check out this new indoor traction decal called “Puppy Treads™,” by Handi-Ramp®, the world’s oldest ramp manufacturing company.

Here’s a great (and portable!) way to exercise your Tripawd:

Paw Pods Make Tripawd Dog Exercise Fun

But use care when using treats during exercise! We love Dr. Harvey’s Sweet Potater’s for a low-cal way to bribe Wyatt into standing on the Paw Pods.

We really like this easy mod to the Ruffwear Doubleback harness . Now rear leggers can wear it too, provided they have at least some stump remaining. Check it out!

Ruffwear Doubleback Harness Mod for Rear Leg Tripawd Dogs

I found that by placing a carabiner or s-clip between the two leg straps, above the base of his tail, he was able to keep the leg strap on even when running all-out.

Ruffwear’s done it again! Here’s why we love the Front Range harness for small and toy breed Tripawds

The Best Small Dog Harness That Helps Tripawds Too!

For small Tripawds with a girth size under 22″, the Ruffwear Front Range harness is perfect. It’s not as heavy-duty as the Webmaster or the EzyDog Tripawd Convert harness, which are great for larger, heavier dogs — but sometimes too much harness for the daintiest Tripawds.

It’s ideal for walking a small breed Tripawd dog. READ MORE HERE.
