Dog shoe training day 1
View Table Of Contents


Hello to our RIFRUF pack! Long time no talk. A lot has happened in the past month and a half since our launch of the first design-driven dog shoes on January 29th, 2021, but nothing has been more exciting than seeing so many of you open your RIFRUF dog sneaker box for the very first time. It truly means a lot to us when we hear you speak about the quality, design, and thoughtfulness that has been put into our dog booties. We are listening, and we appreciate you all.

As we continue to build and expand (be on the lookout for bigger sizes and new colors in the coming months), we want to make sure we continue on our mission to enable your dogs to look their best and live to their fullest, every step of the way. So with that, we introduce to you our RIFRUF CLASSROOM: an educational series showcasing how to train your dogs to accept and wear dog shoes, dog boots, or dog sneakers.

In the first of many in the RIFRUF CLASSROOM series, we wanted to introduce to you our friend Dr. Andy Chiang, DVM. We met Andy when we were initially building our brand and quickly realized that we had similar visions: to give dogs better lives (through cool products!). Andy not only agreed to endorse our dog shoes, but also wanted to show the world how to train and desensitize your dog to wearing dog shoes. Like with any foreign object such as a collar or harness, it will take some training and patience to acclimate your dog to wearing dog shoes or dog boots, but they'll be pros in no time.

Don't believe us? Check out Andy's first vlog post below on our Youtube channel, on how to train your dog to wearing dog shoes on the first day:

If Andy and his corgi Kona can do it, so can you! Just remember these key steps: lots of patience, short sessions, and positive reinforcement. Video shows day 1 of a 3-day series. Stay tuned for videos 2 and 3!
