If you're already wiping them off... simple solution. Baby wipes!

I had heard of these too, looked at them, but wasn't sure they were worth it. So they work well? I might re-visit if so! They also have the little shammys to wipe dogs down after running around in the wetness, or after a bath. Would be nice to have one in the car vs. a gross, damp dog towel...


We just have towels and a blanket laid down where they walk in the house, and we wipe down. Lots of mud here in the PNW. But we have no wall-to-wall carpet, and they come in the house through the basement so that's a bit easier. I don't know if I can ever do carpet again now that I have dogs and now that I've lived in the damp NW. (And have seen rugs pulled up. Yuk.) Throw rugs are much easier to clean!

A friend of mine has GSDs. THey come in through the laundry/mud room, she has them walk through a shallow pan of water, then wipes them down.

It works great for me, and I have 3 dogs. If they run past the rug, you'll still get tracks, but if you get them to step each paw down 2-3 times, you're golden.

Wow!! Bailey has been tracking in so much mud too. He is a HUGE digger. I have been wadding up paper towels placing them in a gallon sized zip lock bag and adding a bit of water and baby shampoo. I dip his feet in and squish them around. I use a microfiber towel to dry and let him go. Then I toss the dirty towels in the trash rinse the bag and start over next time. Huge PAIN, but easier than cleaning carpets all of the time.

I have 2 dogs and they have managed to turn my beautiful grassy back yard into half a mudpit! We keep a towel by the back door and they get wiped when they come in, and by now they are both used to sitting as soon as they come in to get wiped off. Sometimes the towel isnt enough and I use pet wipes (same as baby wipes, and I have considered having my in laws just buy the baby ones from Costco).
I wish I could teach them the trick my dad taught to one of our dogs many years ago. He would comein, and lay down on his rug and wash his paws off. If it was snowy, muddy or raining dad would wipe them with a towel first then tell him to clean his paws and he would lay there and clean each one before leaving the rug. We have way too much traffic in and out of our back door to have them laying there cleaning lol! Not to mention when I say clean your paws and try to get them to do it they look at me like Im on crack ..... but yet at times they lay on the bed gnawing on their paws, go figure!

Thanks, I'm seriously going to check them out. Appreciate it. It is wet here from now until... forever it seems.

PS: If a man has a problem with the dogs feet he should take care of it.
I'm a stay at home mom, and he has a very high stress job so I think he deserves the extra effort, I wont ask him to come home and clean dogs paws, I like my husband to come home to a pristine house, or at least I try
