Thanks Jo Ann Moffi - Re: OR Fido Fleece Dog Booties
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner
Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. Do
not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our
Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an
official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response
from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this
timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben@....
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask
that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our
experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved
and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
This way we can work with you on addressing any standard BGT policy
edits which you can incorporate into your second and subsequent
reviews before submission.
If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community!
The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints,
to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely
manner. Once these first two Owner Reviews have been approved and
you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to
start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance
with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to
Jennifer P, the mentor coordinator, at (jennifer.pope@...).
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group.
These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered
carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your
review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things
easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject
line of your re-submitted review, if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups
list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an
Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post
their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you
have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in
the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they
will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR, the entire
Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via
the list or contact me directly.

- Not Jo Ann, but I tested the Muttluks with my 55 lb dog w/dew claws and they worked great! It was one of my very first tests and we're still using them.

Hey Jo Ann,
(This is apparently Ask Jo Ann Lots of Questions Week...)
Those boots look pretty good. Does your golden have dewclaws? My friend's dog (a
shepherd/pit) has her dewclaws and we haven't been able to find a boot that doesn't bug
her. The newer Ruff Wear ones with the super Vibram soles actually made her dewclaws
bleed, poor thing. She's not a big pansy like my dog, but we've still had occasion to put
doggie boots on her.

around like some dog's do. Sometimes I wonder if its just her getting
tired of wearing the boots or if it is actually irritating. On
occasion, I've re-adjusted the boots and she's been fine for another
couple of km. She kind of stops and noses the boots on the inside of
her leg which is what makes me think its the dewclaws that are being
She fortunately can't talk to tell me what she thinks of them! :)

either above or below Morgan's dewclaws. It seems to be when it is
above that she finds it to be an issue. But we are talking after an
hour or two of hiking as well... its not like she starts poking at
them as soon as we get out the door. Usually an adjustment fixes the
I really like them. I've used them on my sister's dearly departed dog
too and she was a shepard/bull mastiff cross. Not exactly a giant
breed, but she had pretty big feet. She never found them irritating on
her dewclaws because the dewclaws were far enough up her leg that they
were between the velcro strap and the drawstring. She is the only dog
I've had lose a Fido Bootie, but that's because she would take them
off when we weren't looking!
I used to manage a pet food and supply store and we sold more of the
Fido booties than any other. We had some pretty big ones there that
would have fit a giant breed.
