Doberman feet

Why are Doberman feet so rough,other dogs feet are never that rough not talking about the nails which are short paw pads & toe pads??? Oh does anybody do anything to their Dobermans feet to soften them?

Interesting ... i've never found my two's feet to be rough. It's not like they are housebound dogs either, they go hiking and exploring lots of different places with different textured surfaces running and playing and walking. In fact, one of the most common "compliments" that Dante gets is: "Oooohhh ... his feet are soooooooo soft!!!" lol

What has Dante & his sidekick Atia been up to lately? Find out at:

Delta's paws are pretty tough, I've always assumed it was from walking/running outside? The bottoms of my own feet get tough if I go barefoot a lot during the summer.

(And yes, I love to go barefoot in the summer. Especially since I resodded in the front yard this year, the grass feels so nice!! )

I was JUST having this conversation yesterday! My blue heeler's feet are soft and lovely and Ike's big clompers are scratchy and rough - and it's not nice in bed when he decides to stretch and drag his scratchy pads all over you! haha.
I don't know the answer but will be interested to hear if there are any solutions!

I use Mushers Secret...You can get it in JB Wholesale Pet Supplies. It keeps their pads very nice.

I also use Mushers Secret on Baron once a week. Works very well. There a number of places on line to get it. I have looked for it local pet stores but have yet to find a place that has it.

Parkers are rough. I am now constantly getting scruff marks on my legs from him pawing me when I play with him with my feet.
