macoduck Posted September 1, 2016 Share Posted September 1, 2016 A new adopter has hardwood floors in most of her house. Her new greyhound was a bit hesitant about the wood floors at first, but tolerated them until she slipped and fell. I've suggested putting non-slip carpet runners down - oodles of them in connecting trails. Then very gradually removing one and spacing out the gaps, then removing more as she gets more confident. She is not food motivated to coax her along. They also think she may be deaf so I'll be asking the kennel manager tomorrow about that. What is the name of the little rubber toe nail covers used to help dogs dealing with slippery floors? If you've used them were you successful and have you had to continue using them? What size would you suggest? Is there also some kind of dog-safe tacky stuff that could be rubbed on her paws for traction? Got any other tips I can pass along?
