Musher's Secret Paw Protection (1 lb) is a dense barrier wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Developed in Canada for use with sledding dogs, it provides protection even in the most extreme conditions. Perfect for dogs who don't like boots! Made from 100% safe and natural waxes, Musher's Secret won't stain carpets, is non-toxic, and is easy to use. The semi-permeable shield is absorbed into the paws, allowing perspiration to escape through the toes. Excellent for preventing snowballing and saltburn on your dog's toes in the winter and protects paws against sandburn and hot asphalt in summer. Apply a small amount on and in-between your dog's toes. If snowballing re-occurs, just reapply. Wipe off excess after use. Also can be used for protection and soothing relief from fly bitten ears, open sores, cracked toes, nicks, scratches, and burns. Just apply a small amount to the affected area as needed.
Musher's has no healing properties but used
over a cleaned wound,
will keep out dirt and speed the healing process.
Don't forget the human factor:
Use Musher's Secret on your cheeks and hands
to prevent windburn.
Mushers Secret Paw Protection. by CIndy H from New Hampshire01/08/2012
I use this on my Husky and two Labs and it is wonderful. I walk my dogs twice daily and in the winter they dump alot of salt on the roads and mushers protects their paws. Without it, dogs stop and lift up their paws because it burns their feet and I had to wipe of their paws often, with mushers I do not. It is great in the summer, it keeps their paws from burning and cracking from the hot pavement.
We have used Musher's Secret on our labs paws for years. It is the BEST thing that we could have purchased. I recommend it to everyone and have never had anyone come back and say that it wasn't the best. Thank you!
Not just for man's best friend by Conor04/10/2012
I use this product on my lab because she had really rough pads. Within the first treatment you could feel her sandpaper pad slowly becoming smooth. My dog loves to lick her paws directly after application so i have put it on her paws then take her directly outside to play to redirect her attention. ANYWAY....there are several reviews on how awesome this product works for our animals....it does the same for humans. All day long i am constantly washing my hands. Every winter my hands chap real bad so much so that using hand cream doesn't really help. Well after applying to my dog, and taking her directly out, i didn't have time to wash my hands to i just rubbed the wax into my hands as if i was applying hand cream. WOW! My hands look rejuvenated. Try it, you'll be amazed too!
A paw saver by mom from Turney, MO11/17/2011
My Anatolian Shephard is our livestock guard dog. She protects my sheep, chickens and the family all night long. I wanted to protect her paws from the ice and cold. I started applying it right away and it has helped with the cracked pads already.
Tasty! by CIN from Indian Lake , NY01/18/2012
I thought this would be a great treatment for my dog who snowshoes with me. She immediately took to it, but this consisted of licking if off! Maybe some of it remains because she spends less time chewing off the ice that forms between her toes.
Big dogs icey feet by LiQuiD from Anchorage, AK11/19/2011
Living in Alaska and walking your barefoot dog outside in 10F degree weather turns him into a big pupsicle. I apply this to his feet at least once a day to keep his pads from cracking when they ice over and freeze. He has never gotten frostbite and we are always very careful about how cold he must be getting. I noticed improvements to his pads health the third day I started applying this. Less crack lines and more healthy looking skin. Hunter is a big yellow lab with short hair between his toes. The paint can this comes in isn't something that I want to be opening every day. Just because of the sheer difficulty. I had to find a flat head screw driver to open the can. I then had to find a hammer to put the lid back on the can. From that day forward Iíve been putting a weekís worth amount in a different container. This smells like pine tar, in a good way. Mushers Secret is pure white so like it says elsewhere it will not stain the carpet. On that note, I get the beast to stand by the front door. I lift each paw and gently coat each toe with thin film of the MS. I also apply the extra off the toes to the roof of the paw. I take him outside after that. After 5min of running around in the snow he is fine to come back in and get on the carpet. All the excess is gone and there is still some moisturizer on his pads. That leaves little MS to get on the carpet. This is a 5 star product for any Alaskan dog. Iíve been using this for a few weeks now and recommend it to anyone I see with a dog up here.
The solution by Drake from Denver01/05/2012
I'm Drake. I'm a 93.4 lb German Shepherd. I love winter. But always! little balls of snow become compacted deep in my pads. In the past my Person has tried booties, but this only hinders my frolicking. (and my pals around the 'hood point and laugh) So when it's snowy here in Denver she massages Mushers Secret into my pads (delightful!). Not only does it prevent the horrible little balls from slowing me down, it also keeps me from tracking them into the house. So she's happy, and I'm happy. MUSHERS SECRET! Get you some!!
Good Stuff. Container Was Beat Up. by Steve02/12/2012
Musher's Secret has worked well for keeping slush and mush from embedding in our dogs paws. The only complaint is the 1 lb can was pretty beat up. Thankfully the lid is able to close securely.
