Do they slip off the paws? Will they work on a carpet?

I had bought booties for my 14 yo GS but they kept on falling off or he’d pull them off. I then used horse bandages for a while but was concerned about cutting off his circulation. My dog needs help getting up (degenerative myelopathy) his back legs slip when he tries to get up. Right now I think he enjoys me helping him get up, he gives me that look “help!”. He refuses to walk on a bare floor. I have throw rugs everywhere, like patch work.

I’m kinda hoping to be able to restore him a little bit of freedom.

My dog's didn't slip off her paws, 'cause they have this "heel" woven in, Power Paws are actual dog socks. The testimonial section of the website showed dogs on carpet. We had non-skid throw rugs, and the socks weren't pulled off by the different textures when Gypsy walked across them.

You could call and talk to them; their telephone number is in the "contact us" section. I did before I ordered and the customer service was just wonderful.
