An Interview with Dr. Julie Buzby founder of Toegrips for Dogs


A few weeks ago, I attended the BlogPaws 2017 conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This was the first blogging conference I’ve attended. I guess blogging is getting real for me. 😉 I wanted to attend this blogging conference for three reasons: 1) It was in Myrtle Beach! 2) I wanted to learn more about being an effective pet blogger. And 3) I wanted to meet Dr. Julie Buzby, the founder of Dr. Buzby’s Toegrips for Dogs.

About eight months ago, Dexter wore his first pair of Toegrips, and these little rubber grips have transformed his life. You can read how in my November blog post. Today, I wanted to share my interview with Dr. Buzby. Enjoy.

The word on the street is that Dr. Buzby has two more products up her sleeve! Dexter and I are waiting on pins and needles to see what she has next.

  1. I am so happy that the toegrips helped! That sounds like a wonderful product.

  2. Our labrador is 11 years old, and has a lot of special needs. I need to pass this along to my mother. I think they could come in really handy.

  3. I love Myrtle Beach and wish they had this show on when we visited! My puppy is still young but great to bear in mind these points so thank you for sharing!

  4. We had a dog who passed at 12 years old (oh how we loved him!) and he was quite the granpda. Sadly all these new products weren’t available then. I’m so happy they are now. Our new dog is turning 4 in December.

  5. I’ve never heard of Toegrips before, such an awesome concept! It’s also cool that you were able to interview the creater of them!

  6. I have a friend who has a special needs dog and has some problems with walking. I feel like these toe grips would really help her out so I am going to forward the post onto her and see what she thinks. Well done for attending your first blogging conference x

  7. What an amazing product! I had never heard of toe grips before watching your video and it was really interesting to hear it’s application and how it assists older, injured or special needs dogs. The part where the vet mentioned using super glue for application on the nails does make sense when you think about how they would slip off otherwise. Such a useful and helpful product that I think could benefit a couple of dogs that I am aware of. Thanks for spreading the word!

  8. Interesting, we have senior doggies. It is sad that they age and get old but some days we wouldn’t even know they act like puppies haha! I know there are a lot of special needs doggies out there too. Thanks for sharing this!

  9. Great interview. I was just telling my kids about the costs associated with dogs. It’s getting so expensive to care for them that it’s turned me off for wanting one anymore. I like when sites are transparent about the needs of pets.

  10. I’m from SC and I’ve never heard of this conference or the toe grips. I’m more of a cat lady but I’m passing this along to my sister who is doggy crazy. She will love it! Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. This sounds like a great event. I’ve never heard of toegrips but it sounds like a tool that helps special needs dogs. Glad that it helps your dog,

  12. I didn’t know these were a thing. So glad your dog found some relief and what a great first experience at a conference for you!

  13. Amazing innovation. I have 4 dogs; all of them are less than 4 years old, but I know I need to be well-equipped with ideas like this in the future.

  14. Amazing innovation. I have 4 dogs; all of them are less than 4 years old, but I know I need to be well-equipped with ideas like this in the future. Thanks for sharing!

  15. It’s not easy to take care of senior dogs. It’s worth it though, especially since they’re part of the family. I think this was a nice interview. It’s good to learn more about how we can take care of our fur babies.

  16. This is good news. I am happy that there are products like this that would help older dogs or senior dogs to stay ambulatory. My fur baby is only 4 years old but I would keep this in mind if he gets old and gray. 🙁

  17. Ahh I’ve had a relative that had a dog with special needs! This looks so useful and it would have been truly amazing if I knew about these back then x

  18. These are a great idea! My last dog (miss him still) had trouble walking on our slick floor and would sometimes fall. 🙁 Could have used these!

  19. These are such great products and I have a dog of my own. What a lovely read and I love things for dogs or anything dog related.

  20. What a great product!! I know for us, our pets are literally our family and we would do anything and everything to improve their lives (probably before our own! lol)

  21. This is really sounds great and a good information for me I don’t have dogs but I think this was helpful for me in the future. Glad you share this post

  22. What a wonderful product! We have hardwood floors at our house and sometimes our dogs are a little slippy slidey on them. Outside of that though, anything that can help dogs have the best quality of life is a win in my book. I’m so glad these are in the rolodex of choices!

  23. What a great idea! It sounds like it REALLY helps pets! And I’m with you, Myrtle Beach is so fun!

  24. Your post is very helpful. I will definitely use these tips when my fluff baby gets older too. Thanks for sharing.

  25. How wonderful that they helped your dog. I didn’t even know things like this existed.

  26. I learned something new today as I’ve often wondered what those toe grips were for. It’s amazing how much new aids are available to aging pets… wonderful!

  27. I had never heard of those toegrips before. Thank you for teaching me something new, and good that those have changed the life of your Dexter. 🙂

  28. I am enjoying watching animal videos and tutorials how to raise them. Thanks for your generous post!

  29. Thank you, Tonya and Dexter, for the opportunity to be interviewed for your blog! It was super fun to finally meet in person in Myrtle Beach! I’m delighted and grateful that you are helping us spread the word about ToeGrips for senior and special needs dogs!

  30. This is so cool, I personally don’t have any pets yet but my brother does. One of his dogs is getting up there in age and I will definitely let him know about these Toegrips!! Thanks for sharing!!

  31. ToeGrips for senior and special needs dogs seem wonderful! We have a ‘senior’ pet who we love very much, and will consider the products. Thank you for the heads up and information.

  32. My biggest mission in life right now is to get a pup. I am watching several videos on how to take care of them. happy to find this post
