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.

The best paw protector
February 9, 2016
This is the best paw protector I ever bought! I've been using it for years. I've tried other products that I got at the pet store but none compare to Musher's Secret. It stays on the paw longer, the other ones seem to wear off in minutes. The funny thing about this product is that it's made in Canada and yet we can't buy it here!!

Awesome Product

I have been using this product on all of my dogs paws all year long. It keeps their pads in check no blowouts no cracking of the paws. It protects their paws in the winter from frost bite and on asphalt. I would highly recommend Mushers Secret Paw Protection to all Dog owners from hunting dogs to house dogs.

We used it the entire winter on our black labrador. From dry cracked paws, he has now soft and wound free paws. Cream keeps away ice, snow, sand and gravel. We apply twice a week and put him socks, while he sleeps :-) so cream works best. I find it superior to any other hand cream, I use it myself during winter! Overall, very very pleased with quality.

Wonderful stuff!

Foot cream for dogs! We use Musher's Secret to keep our city beagle comfortable on her winter walks. So many people use unfriendly salt on their sidewalks and Musher's Secret protected her feet. And it's easier to put on than booties.

This was my first time purchasing this product and I did so after extensive careful research. So far it has worked wonders in protecting my dogs pads from snow/ice and overall making them much softer and less dry.

Be forewarned that if you apply too much it will stain carpeting, furniture and fabrics. I did so and later learned you are only to apply a small amount. I still apply liberally but wipe the excess off with a cotton towel after doing.His paws remain comfortable during 30 minute walks of up to about one mile across snow & ice in temperatures as cold as -5 F.

Mushers secret
February 6, 2015
We just love this product, It helps our dogs when we're outside or in the barn. I notice not so much holding their feet up from the cold snow and they seem to want to go outside more to just play. Thanks for such a great product !

mcsher's secret paw protection
February 2, 2015
Tis product is excellent. After watching our Dog who is a irish setter/golden retriever mix, fight the ice balls in his feet when we walked him..we saw a ad on mushers secret. This is our 2nd year using it and we would not be without it. It has saved our dogs feet many times over. He rarely gets ice balls caught in his paws any more!

This product is better than I have tried before (2 others, 2 other types). It is easy to get on a 6lb dog but it does stain a bit on the carpet.
Excellent protection for tender paws
January 30, 2015
We have a boarding business (country dog camp) where we transport city dogs to our 52 acre farm in NEPA to enjoy a vacation hiking, exploring and playing in the great outdoors. We are open for business year round and the winter weather is very harsh on tender paws. Most of our canine clientele hate having boots on their paws. Inevitably, they will quickly remove and lose them. Musher's Secret Paw Protection does a great job by forming a protective barrier so they can enjoy all the perks of being outdoors for a much longer time period. It also minimizes ice balls forming on the furry paws of our hairier dogs.

Excellent Product - Musher's Paw Protector
January 31, 2014
This waxy product is excellent - protects our dogs from the salt applied on New York streets after snow and ice blankets the area. Before we used this product, our dogs would regularly have painful experiences on ordinary walks, lifting their legs to avoid hitting the salt again. With Mushers, they are perfectly comfortable walking on snowy/icy streets that are covered with salt!

Review for Musher's Secret Paw Protection (1 lb)
March 14, 2013
Mushers secret works pretty good on our golden retreiver and german wirehair. It is kinda messy to get on their pads, but worth it. It does keep their paws from balling up with snow. It doesn't leave greasy spots in the house or truck either.

very good product. healed cracked and peeling paw pads in a matter of days. have since used to protect and heal hairless area under tail from black flys and their bites. no mess, goes on very easy with very little licking of treated areas by dog. only problem was that plastic container holding the product was broken when received, had to find another container to hold product. notified Entirely Pets and they refunded shipping cost.

Recommended for the desert too !
March 6, 2013
My sister recommended it to me with high regards.
Her golden retriever has a lame leg and the foot pad would always get roughed up on any surface other then grass. My dog and I lives in the desert
and he needs mushers to protect his paws from the harsh ground and dryness.

I have two greyhounds and their feet are very delicate. This product prevents snow build-up between their pads and decreases the irritation of harmful salt in the winter months. During the summer it lessens the irritation which is caused by hot concrete and asphalt. Musher's is particularly good at making walking more comfortable for my grey who is prone to corns. Entirely Pets consistently has the most competitive pricing for Musher's

Recently bought this for a friend who has a Nova Scotia Duck Toller and he has not had any problems with snow balls or ice bothering his paws. We just had a major snow storm and still no issues. love this product.

musher's secret

I have tried vaseline, pam spray, and booties to prevent those nasty ice balls from forming between my poodles paw pads with no success. I ordered the musher's secret and then -NO SNOW! Finally, I got the day I was waiting for and applied the stuff to both my poodle's and bulldogs feet and went out for a walk. We had a great time with no stopping to chew out the ice balls. Nor did the product mark up my floors at home. And the dogs seemed to enjoy my rubbing it into their feet. They're happy and I'm happy and waiting to go out in the snow this weekend. (be careful what you wish for)

This stuff goes on easily and keeps our Boston Terrier's feet soft and I think it helps keep his pads from cracking.

I don't feel it's enough to go without his boots when the temperature much below freezing and the walks slushy.

Lots of product for such a great price! This is the samw price most other websites charge for less than a half a pound. Regular delivery was supposed to take 4-8 days and arrived after 2! I've had bad experiences with dog shoes and slippers. My dogs hate having something on their feet. This product is fairly easy to apply and they don't even know they have it on. It takes me about 20 sec to put it on but then you just have to wash your hands. No big deal. It does leave a waxy shine where the dog walks if you let your dog walk around your house immediately after applying it. I would suggest putting this on, washing you hands and heading right out the door. There's no need to wash it off your dogs paws it absorbs by the time you get home ( for me that's 15 minutes of walking). If the roads are really salty I'd definitely suggest washing them though just to get the extra salt off. If you walk your dog a lot I would definitely suggest giving this a try! For the price you can't go wrong.

Musher's Secret: it's worth the buy!

It really works! A layer of Musher's Secret under my dogs' paws and they can run and play their hearts content without problems.
That's great!

Great alternative to boots. My dogs can now tolerate road salt/snow, it truly prevents ice balling/caking between paws. Does not seem to effect our floors.

I purchased this on a vet's recommendation. This was for my Chicago city dweller daughter's dog. A must for walks on those snowy, salty sidewalks. They both love it.

December 9, 2012
It is sometimes hard to decide whether or not to buy a product based on reviews that are left, but let me tell you, this stuff works. My dog runs alongside my bike and I needed something to keep her paws in good shape. Musher's Secret keeps her paws from cracking and blistering. I highly recommend it! We haven't tried it in winter conditions yet because it has been unusually warm lately, but I am confident it will work well.

Not just for man's best friend

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 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!
