The lush feeling of freshly pedicured feet is something we all love to indulge grooming dog pawsin. Treat your dog to the pampered feeling with a little help from us on grooming dog paws.

How do you apply dog paw cream?

Don't leave paw care just to the groomer – start our two step quick and easy daily routine. Be sure to repeat after walks on grass, coming into contact with wandering jew, or any other allergen you've noticed your dog is sensitive to. 

  1. Begin with our luxurious manuka honey shampoo to cleanse and soothe those dirty or irritated paws. Dry thoroughly in between those tootsies.
  2. Finish by rubbing a small amount of the moisture balm in your palms and massage gently all over the paws. Your hands will love this dog paw cream too! Moisture balm is a great dog paw cream.

Tips on grooming dog paws 

Get everything you need before you start to ensure a smooth, stress-free bonding session – a rule of thumb for any pet care task! 
Paw shy? Use their favourite toy or slow eating treat to distract. I keep frozen peanut butter (Xylitol free only) smothered Kong toys for this. 


What to check for when grooming your dog paws:

  • Cuts, abrasions and tears 
  • Cracked or torn nails
  • Foreign objects such as grass seeds
  • Hair loss 
  • Foul smell – you'll know it when you smell it!
