General Hunnyboots Questions

All questions and answers relating to all types of Hunnyboots

Just like your own sneakers or trainers getting wet and frequently used, they will take on an odour. We recommend a quick rinse in cold water along with a light scrubbing with a very soft brush with face soap or mild dishwashing detergent. Its quite safe to use human foot deodorisers on them. We do not recommend soaking them.

Please don't be tempted to use laundry detergent or pop them in the washing machine as they will not survive. Even the greenest of laundry detergents can contain alcohol, acids and ethanol and the combination of cold, warm or hot water with these three active ingredients will attack and dissolve the glue holding the soles on. We cannot provide warranty for shoes that have been destroyed as a result of laundering.

The only thing holding any shoe on a dog is the strap around the wrist. If it's loose or simply not tight enough, it will come off - guaranteed.

Follow these steps and your Hunnyboots won't come off until you take them off.

The best way to think of Hunnyboots (or at least V2 or V3) is that they are sneakers, or running shoes you'd wear to an activity such has a fun run, or 'Tough Mudder' event where they may get wet (just like a pair of cross-fit Nikes) but will drain out and dry off. They're made of largely similar material.

With regard to freezing conditions, I expect they would behave in the same way as a pair of Nike runners - that is to say they will absorb water and very likely freeze as I'd imagine human runners would.

They'd be fine for icy roads and pathways from a traction perspective and for romping in the snow, but they will get wet and so will the greyhounds feet.

We recommend you look at our Winter Splish-Splash boots!

Hunnyboots widen at the top so that when the velcro strap is undone, you can just slip them straight off after a walk without having to undo the zippers. The zip is there purely to open the boot all the way to the toe nails so getting a boot on is simple.

There is a reinforced elastic gathering to bring the boot in around the wrist, beneath the velcro strap. This has been positioned underneath the dew claw so there's no contact at all, but they may be covered by the slightly wider fabric at the top.

Hunny is very fussy about her dew claws and some other boots made them bleed and cut into her wrist.

We designed with that in mind, along with toe nail space, so no rubbing of knuckles either.

The profile of a Hunnyboot is quite low and the velcro strap sits well clear of a greyhounds dew claw.

This is an area we can assist with. We have fielded a number of similar requests and are dealing with them on a case by case basis. Please contact us here to discuss.

There are many reasons why people are buying boots for greyhounds. Some are as a safety measure because they walk on city streets. Some are for therapeutic reasons post surgery and active corn procedures. Some are purely for the fashion aspect - greyhounds are very stylish after all!

If you need boots for every day walking and avoid the pain and costs of dealing with gravel and glass stuck in a paw, or your greyhound has corns and you want to ease their pain on walks, then Hunnyboots is an excellent choice.

However, if your greyhound has a chronic issue and you really only need a single boot, there are plenty of other options you can buy. We recommend the Thera-paw brand, they have been providing therapeutic assistance to dogs for many years and have a shoe product to fit greyhounds.
