TO USE AS A PROTECTION WAX:
To protect paw pads from ice, salt, snow, desert, and other harsh outdoor elements, apply liberally just before a hike. Be sure to massage a thick layer onto pads as well as in-between toes.
TO USE AS A CONDITIONING BALM:
Massage a thin layer into paw pads to soothe, moisturize and heal worn, cracked, dry or damaged paw pads. We suggest applying at night and offering a chew bone or toy (ie, a Kong toy stuffed with peanut butter) to distract your pup while it absorbs to get the full benefit. No worries if your pup does lick it, though – it’s safe and it will still do the job!
HOW TO APPLY THE BALM:
The protective and healing beeswax makes this product firm to the touch. From our pot or tin, dig a scoop of wax out with your thumb, then briefly warm and rub it between your fingers and palm to warm it. This will help it soften enough to massage onto pup’s paw pads with your fingers. (Watch our video from @wildling_tails below!)
If using our stick applicator, simply use it as you would a deodorant stick… gently glide product over paw pads, ensuring they are well coated.
Please note that beeswax may harden or soften depending on the temperature, so it’s best to store it at room temperature, in a dark area like a cabinet or pantry. If the container is exposed to cold temps and the wax is extremely hard, scoop some out and hold in your palm until it begins to soften, or allow the container to warm up before using. Likewise, if summer heat begins to melt the wax, simply stick it in a cooler or fridge to re-harden!
PRODUCT TESTER REVIEWS:
“Snowmageddon 2019 in the PNW had us trapped at home for a week! With several inches of snow and six dogs, we had no choice but to play in the snow as much as possible, but we needed help. The Northwest Dog’s paw balm seriously SAVED THE DAY! Not only did it protect their pads and paws from the cold snow, but I rubbed it on my long haired dogs to help with snow clumping and even on a small wound my dog got from a branch to promote healing! It worked wonders, even with hours of snow play and it worked on all terrain!” – Mollie @wildling_tails (See Mollie’s video below!)
“I 100% recommend this product! This paw balm instantly made Milo’s dry paws feel smooth and hydrated. We strive to walk or hike at least 2 miles every day and Milo’s paws were always a little rough. After rubbing and massaging the balm into his paws, they’ve never felt nor looked so nice and healthy! I’ve only applied it a couple times since we got it and his paws are still soft! He has no issues with me putting it on him except he does try to lick it, which is ok since it’s dog-friendly, but to avoid the licking try giving a cookie treat as you apply it. It worked great for us!” – Sarah @milopnw
“I have tried a few different paw balms and this one is by far my favorite. The consistency of the balm makes it super easy to apply, it doesn’t have a strong smell that makes my dog run away when I pull it out and the best thing about it is that it’s safe to lick.” – Melissa @drogontheamazing
“This paw balm is moisturizing for my girl and myself! After I’m done applying the paw balm to Delilah, I’ll rub in the excess into my hands. It smells great and I love that it’s made with all natural ingredients.” – Resa @thelifeofdelilah
“This paw balm is great! Cedar’s paws didn’t get red from the snow and they’re softer than usual.” – Alisha @northwestgolden
