Have anybody use softpaw on your dog? If so, is it worth it?
Can I get them at a store without ordering them online? But if I have to order them online is there a canadian site?

Thanks!!
Shanna

Its like a nail cap. It cover the dogs toe nails so it wont scratch the floors etc.. I was just curious if they were worth it.
Here is the site about it.

We have hardwood floor throughout our home and the dogs don't scratch it. If you trim regularly this should not be an issue.

I don't. Boo just ripped me between my toes this morning, but I wouldn't cap him. He'd probably chew them off or just chew them until his feet were raw (and I know a few doggies who would do the same). I think the best thing is to buy a file and file the nails down if they really bug you. That way they are short and smooth. You have to do it often. The longer the nails grow, the further out the quick (nerves and blood vessels) grow.
