The family dog, a chow mix, has always had trouble navigating the wintry Blue Lake terrain. His paws get caked with ice and snow and he ends up chewing on his feet and limping shortly after exposure. Little dog sledding booties didn’t help, always falling, or getting nudged, off. While in the Rocky Mountains, I came across a nifty product in a pet store… Musher’s Secret, a barrier wax for dog paws. I sent a tub up to the lake and success! Mr. Dog is now trotting happily along, investigating snowmen and digging through snowbanks to get at last year’s frozen compost pile.
Musher’s Secret is made from 100% natural waxes and protects dog feet against salt and chemicals, ice build-up, snowballing, sand and sand burn, hot pavement and rough terrain. It’s for sale in the Doctors Foster and Smith online catalogue.
