Top 10: Boot protectors for dogs 2020

A long bumper protector section folds out to prevent scratches from your dog's nails when climbing in and out. It's held by velcros strips on the underside, securing it neatly in place, and the material is easy to wipe dirt and hair off as well.
The liner is made of 600 denier, vinyl backed nylon which provides a waterproof barrier too. So unlike some car protectors for dogs, it's lightweight which makes it easy to install and remove as well as being very hard wearing.
