Hi, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how Happy we are with the summer shoes we purchased for our dogs. They allowed us to take our dogs ‘Rocky and Ruby” on our boating vacation. The shoes fit perfect and never came off. Ruby did some swimming and she did great. Rocky is the black male and Ruby is the brown and white female There was no damage to the boat (thank you) At first we wondered because the dogs walked funny (I mean Funny!) Like you said after the first couple of times wearing them I think the dogs liked them. Please see attached pictures Thanks again for a great product Steve Stearns Coburg Oregon
