Hey there! Welcome to our review of the LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks. These are colorful indoor dog footwear made by LFPET.
These socks have received many different reactions from customers, and today we will be looking at what those reactions are, and why they are.
The first step in that direction will be to answer a pretty important, and frequently asked question around here.
Who Can Wear The LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks?
Well, we will say dogs who do most of their activities indoors. These are not your regular dog footwear, and cannot be used outdoors. Thus, if your dog is outdoors most of the time, this might not be a good bargain.
Also, in many cases, these socks run pretty small so, perhaps you should not be getting them if yours is a very large dog.
Well, aside from that, these socks are not for any specific breed of dogs. If his size is available, then your dog can wear them; regardless of his weight or breed.
Features Of The LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks
LFPET makes these socks with soft quality cotton. As a result of this, it is not advisable that you use these socks for very intense activities.
However, though the material is soft, it is still durable. The fabrics are well-knitted together which makes these socks strong enough to withstand scratches from your dog’s claws.
Also, in case you didn’t already know, cotton is a really healthy material for your dog’s feet. It is a very breathable material and guarantees your dog’s feet maximum comfort.
These socks are made with an anti-slippery design at the bottom. This design prevents your dog from slipping and falling while he has these socks on.
As a result of this unique design, these socks are great to be worn indoors, especially on hardwood or tiled floors.
These socks are available in a wide range of colors. Red, pink, yellow, blue, green, orange, black, brown, and even more.
You see, with the socks, you do not know what to expect. Literally. When you place an order for these socks, you don’t select any color, LFPET randomly sends you any color.
But well, all the available colors are really adorable, so, why not let yourself be surprised a little? Lol.
These socks are available in 3 different sizes – Small, Medium, and Large. In this sub-section, we will be giving you the dimensions of each of these 3 sizes.
But before that, please do remember that it is important for you to properly measure your dog’s paws before getting these socks. Also, we advise that you add an extra 0.25 inches (0.6 centimeters) to your measurement, in order to try and forestall a case of what you get being too small.

Cons Of The LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks
In some cases, the socks that the customer got ended up being smaller than expected. In some other cases, the socks would not stay on. They are either spinning on the dog’s feet or slipping off completely.
Also, it must be said that, while the idea of sending the socks in random colors seemed to intrigue some customers, some others weren’t very impressed with what they got, and would have preferred to choose themselves.
Alternatives To The LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks
High-End Option — Sporty-Supportive Mesh Pet Sandals
These are unique and stylish dog sandals made by popular pet product company – Pet Life. The Sporty-Supportive Mesh Pet Sandals are made with mesh fabric which makes them breathable, and thus, comfortable for your dog’s feet.
Speaking of comfort, Pet Life designs these shoes with openings at the sides and the toe areas. These openings, as you would have guessed, allow for inflow of air, thereby, giving your dog’s feet more comfort.
However, some people have frowned at these openings. Majority of the reasons being that they make the shoes unfit for outdoor activities during the wet seasons, even though they are waterproof.
Apparently, water can easily get in through these openings, and your dog’s feet are left wet, and he is. therefore, made uncomfortable.
Furthermore, the soles of these shoes are made of rubber, which give your dog good traction. And also, they come with Velcro straps which allow for easy putting on and taking off.
Now, these sandals are available in a range of 4 different sizes – from X-Small to Large. Thus, you can see that these shoes are just right for small, medium, and large sized dogs. Really big dogs, however, we are not so sure.

And you will surely be making a good fashion choice opting for either of these colors.

What Do People Think About The LFPET Traction Control Cotton Socks?
If there is one consistent comment coming from customers about these socks, it’s that they are adorable.
These socks come in a really wide range of colors and are all very cute to look at according to the dog owners who have tried them out.
However, a few customers appeared not to be very pleased with the fact that they did not get to choose their preferred colors. Anyway, many others seem to be really intrigued by this, because, according to them, the colors that came were indeed adorable.
Now, one common complaint about these socks is that they slip off pretty easily. They either rotate on the dog’s feet or come off completely.
This is not good news, because when these socks spin or slip off, it causes the dog to lose the stability it originally used to get from these socks. This comes off as even more disappointing news if your dog is aging.
Also, some dog owners complained that the size they got was different from what they saw on the size chart before they placed an order. For some, the socks ended up being too big, but for many others, too small.
Moreover, many customers seem to agree that these socks are easy to use and really comfortable for dog’s paws. Also, the socks are indeed anti-slip, except in cases where they do not stay on.
Cute. Adorable. Honestly, we don’t think we can ever overemphasize the aesthetics of these shoes. They are so eye-catching; so lovely to look at.
And for us, it’s a good idea that the colors are sent randomly, because if one was to choose from that many adorable color options, one might end up being really indecisive, lol.
Also, any dog footwear made with quality cotton fabric is one we probably would love very much. Cotton is a really good material for dog footwear. They are generally breathable and comfortable.
Anyway, we do think that LFPET needs to do a lot more work to ensure that these shoes do not come off easily.
One of the most important reasons people choose these socks is because of the traction it gives, but when they slip off, that purpose is defeated. Perhaps if this is looked into and properly addressed, these socks would be even more sort after than they already are right now.
Another thing they need to look into, though, is the dimensioning. No one wants to get socks that are bigger or smaller than what they anticipated.
Anyway, since it happens that the more common complaint is that the socks run small, we advise that you add an extra 0.25 inches to what you get after measuring your dog’s feet.
These complaints aside, though, we really do think these socks are doing a lovely job at giving dogs of different breeds the right comfort and protection for their paws while indoors.
Finally, please, do remember that these socks are not for very intense activities, and, invariably, not for very active dogs.
