Who hasn’t taken the dog out for a winter jaunt and noticed that by the end, poor Fido is fighting the snow packed into his paws?

Sure, you could fuss over slipping on his booties (he loves those, right?) or stop every 20 paces to hand-warm his tootsies, but why not just use Musher’s Secret instead?

This safe, nontoxic and natural wax was developed in Canada for sled dogs.

Maybe your pooch isn’t headed to run the Iditarod anytime soon, but I bet he’d thank you for some paw protection around the neighborhood.

The all-natural dense wax is made up of a blend of several food-grade waxes and creates a semipermeable layer on the dog’s paw.

The company says Musher’s Secret “helps protect against snow, ice, salt, hot pavement, wounds to the paws, sand, etc. Musher’s Secret will not hurt your dog if he/she ingests it, but it does have mild laxative qualities to it.”

Musher’s Secret comes in three different sizes: 60 gram, 200 gram and 1 pound, and is really simple to use. Just rub some on your pup’s pads before you head out the door and you’re ready for some painless playtime.
