Musher's Secret Paw Protection (60 g) 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.
Had my doubts but I was wrong by Lizzie from Moline, IL01/22/2014
Listing to the cry's from my dog when we hit a salty patch on our daily walks was just too much. Boots did not suit him. I was aware of this product but I had my doubts about if it would work. I was wrong. I put it on his paws and rubbed it into the fur between his pads - not adding too much of the product - and it worked great. I held my breath as he walked through a puddle of salty water into a snow bank without any pain. We walk across heavily salted pavement with no problems now. Sorry I waited so long. There are no marks from the product on the dark brown ceramic tile on the floor in the mud room where I apply it either. Great stuff.
Best Product... Paws down! by rzirkle12/08/2011
My highly competitive male does a lot of sliding and slipping during agility and frisbee games. He was prone to ripping open his pads. Musher's Secret has helped to get his pads in A+ shape. When they are flexible/pliable and not dry/cracked, they hold up much better to his competitive antics. I would recommend it HIGHLY as a maintenance product to keep pads in wonderful condition and prevent problems from ever occurring.
Musher's Secret Review by JillyCat03/08/2014
This worked fairly well, but it did not last for more than about half an hour in deep snow. It was somewhat difficult to apply b/c it is so solid. I couldn't seem to get much out of the container to apply on my dog's paws. In all, it did help a lot in keeping snow from balling up between her paws. I've also heard that vaseline works well so I'll try that and compare the two.
Very convenient by puppy_fan02/03/2013
This wax is a lot more convenient than struggling with doggie shoes. It works well to prevent ice clogs on doggie's paws.
Great stuff by Ann10/12/2011
This has really worked on my dog's very rough spots on his pads. Can't wait to see how it works in the snow. Will definitely keep using and recommending to others.
I use for my dogs & recommend to my clients! by Tailwaggers, Inc. from Westchester County, NY02/01/2011
We've had more snow here then I can ever remember, and I needed something better than booties for my 2 pooches who pick up their feet and cry whenever they touch ice or salt. This product works great, they no longer have a problem with snowballs/salt unless I am taking them on a super long walk and the product wears off a bit. I am a professional dog trainer and have started recommending this product to my clients as well!
