PLEASE remember to protect your Service Dog’s paws in the upcoming heat (and when there is extreme cold). This product is absolutely wonderful. Instead of trying to get your dog to wear booties, which can be cumbersome, just apply a thin coating of the Musher’s Secret to their paws and let it sit for about 5 minutes. It forms a protective barrier on the dog’s paws that truly works. It can be purchased here, on Amazon, at Walmart, etc.
