Purchased this for my golden retriever who I take on long walks. This has been a game changer and keeps my dogs from destroying my house with their dirty paws. Highly recommend!
I bought this on a bit of a whim since I was tired of putting my muddy puppy in the downstairs shower every time he came in from the backyard with mud and poop on his paws. I was expecting a lot of resistance since dogs often don't like having their paws touched. We tried it on both dogs with lukewarm water inside (one is 11 years old, the other is 1 year old), and reinforced with treats and letting them smell it. I think it must be pleasantly massage-like, because both dogs, while annoyed at having their feet grabbed, were totally okay with plunging each foot into the device with a mild back-and-forth scrubbing action. I then dried off their paws with a towel. The most satisfying part is pouring out the dirty water and knowing that dirt didn't end up on my sofa. I did swiffer the floor afterward, since inevitably the room in which you stop them to do this ends up a little muddy from their initial entrance, and a little wet if there's a bit of splash. An unexpected side effect is that my puppy, who often has allergies, has also been chewing his feet less. Our dogs are ~40 lbs, and we got the medium size.
I have dogs that live in the house but love the woods when the season permits so paw cleaning is important here.I never write reviews but I had to give this product a thumbs up because unlike the others I’ve tried in the past,This one works perfectly.
The bristle texture along with the correct taper down the cup sets this one apart from the others. And, build quality - you can feel it when you hold it. This one is the real deal. Btw , it even works for my little JR terrier .
I was skeptical about ordering this item. I thought it was a luxury to clean my dogs paws after coming in from outside. Was I really going to spend money on that? Well I did and I'm SO GLAD I did! This has made me not dread letting my dog out during rainy, mud filled days. It is so easy to use and my Golden retriever doesn't mind it either. We fill the container up with lukewarm water and dip, twist, wring, and dry and ... presto you have clean paws! I highly recommend this product for any dog owner.
