All-season paw protection for your dog. Made from 100% natural waxes.
Musher's Secret Dog Paw Wax - The Invisible Boot:
Musher's Secret is a dense, barrier dog paw wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Originally developed in Canada for use with sledding dogs, this unique paw wax for dogs provides tenacious protection even in the most extreme conditions and temperatures.
Go jogging, biking, mountain climbing, beach combing, cross-country skiing, mushing, or just plain walking with your best pal. Musher's Secret wax puts a barrier between dog paws and off-road or street hazards, so the trip will be worry free.
Protect your dog from:
Hot Pavement (Please use your best judgement on when to take your dog out on pavement during summer months. We recommend only going during cooler parts of the day and using Musher's Secret wax to help condition the pads - letting them acclimate & toughen to the terrain slowly over time)
Salt and chemicals
Hot Sand and sandburn
A Dog Paw Pad Wax That is Safe and Natural:
Made from a blend of several food-grade, organic waxes, then refined according to special formulations, Musher's Secret dog paw wax is the safe, non-toxic way to protect your dog's paws. The semi-permeable shield is absorbed into the paws, allowing perspiration to escape through the toes. Additionally, Musher's Secret wax can speed the healing process on existing sores by keeping dirt and debris out of a wound.
Easy to Use:
Apply a thin coat of Musher's wax on dog paw pads and between toes as needed depending upon the level of outside exposure.
Dries in seconds
Use as needed
Will not stain carpets or furniture
Non-toxic and non-allergenic
A general note on dealing with summer heat
*Please don't assume that using Musher's Secret wax or dog boots means that you can exercise your dog for long periods of time in extreme heat.
During the summertime when temperatures spike, it is VERY important to only exercise your dog during cooler parts of the day and for shorter periods of time. Remember that dogs do not have many sweat glands and do not cool nearly as efficiently as humans. If jogging or biking on pavement be sure to check the temperature of the pavement beforehand and make sure your dog's pads have become accustomed to this terrain over time. Always bring water along and take frequent breaks in shaded areas if possible. If biking, consider bringing along a dog bike trailer with a cool wet towel or cooling pad inside to give your dog a rest on the way home. You may even consider looking into a dog cooling vest. Keep an eye out for signs of heat exhaustion such as if your dog’s tongue becomes very wide and curls up at the end. Please take care not to push your dog in the summer (even if they want to keep going)! If they become overheated, the best way to cool them down is from the bottom up. You can spray them down with cool water on their paws, legs, underside and head/neck first - then get them into a cool environment as soon as possible. If they don't improve, don't hesitate to take them to a vet immediately.

"I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for such a miracle product. My hound mix, Frylie, loves to run with my husband and me when we mountain bike every day. However, our trails have a lot of rocks, roots and sand, and Fry's poor paw pads were frequently getting torn and cut. I started applying Musher's Secret 2-3 times a week a couple of months ago and not only are his paws soft as velvet now, but he hasn't gotten a single tear, scrape or cut since, even though we're on the same trails for even longer and faster rides - and it also healed up the previous cuts. We've also noticed an additional side benefit - Fry used to be rather touchy about having his feet handled. However, the Musher's Secret is so soothing that he now happily gives me his paws to have it applied and is no longer foot-shy!
Musher's Secret is the best!"

"You have a super product that I recommend to people all the time. As a matter of fact, I just bought another can to use on our dogs' paw pads for their next dock diving event. It's going to be on an asphalt parking lot in August. Can you say HOT? Even though the pool and crating areas will be covered, they still have to walk around from place to place. But I know putting Musher's Secret on their pads will help prevent any burn they might get walking around on the asphalt.
Again, thanks for your help." Nancy
"I just wanted to write you and let you know your product has worked miracles for my dog.
We just moved from Texas to Boston, and experienced our first snow. My dog loves to walk, she looks forward to at least two miles a day. After the snow, she could no longer walk even half a block before limping, crying, and giving up. She has hairy paws, and it appears the snow was balling up almost immediately, and making it very painful to walk. She was getting cabin fever, very heartbreaking that she had to stop doing the only thing that makes her happy. I got boots, but they were worthless. She refused to walk in them, and they didn't stay on anyway. Someone told me about Musher's Secret today. I immediately went to the only store in the area that had it, and picked up a tub. I put it on, took a deep breath, and took her outside. I was absolutely shocked to see that she had zero problems! She was so happy to be out walking again. She made it the full two miles, over salt, sand, snow and ice, and never even hesitated. I cannot believe this one little product saved our sanity by preventing the pain and discomfort. Thank you so much for making such an excellent product! It is a must for dogs in the winter."

"I want you to know I have never written a letter endorsing a product until now. I have an English Bull Terrier. The way her legs are constructed makes it very hard to keep boots on without nearly cutting off the circulation in her legs. She’s quite a snow romper, and within seconds (less than 10 feet into the walk) her nail beds and pads would be bloody messes. I figured using Musher’s Secret was worth a try and it’s a miracle. Her normal walk circuit is a mile in a snowy meadow, where she runs like a demon with her best German Shepherd pal. Since using MS there has not been one drop of blood, nail bed irritation or cut pad. It’s simply amazing. We have now recommended it to two other dog owners who have reported similar results.
Thanks for making a great product!" Cathy
"I am about to start my third year as a veterinary student at the University of Illinois. I just wanted to say that I think your product is fantastic! I originally bought it for my Bearded Collie, Frankie, since we enjoy taking long walks in the winter, but he didn't enjoy the salt burn or snowballing. I noticed it had a soothing effect on his feet and would use it if he had any hotspots elsewhere on his body. It worked well for that too! I've recommended your product to several of my friends. One of the dogs I recommended it for was my friend's Beagle-Lab mix. Shadow is about 13 years old, and has an inoperable mast cell tumor on his front foot. He kept biting and chewing on it and it was becoming impossible to keep him from bothering his foot last winter. Shadow was bleeding and at risk for secondary bacterial infections. I recommended Musher's Secret--and his foot was able to heal. He no longer has a cracked, bleeding tumor, and his family doesn't have to worry about him being at risk for infections. My friend's mom said it saved his life; they were worried that they would have to euthanize Shadow because of the bleeding and infections. It's six months later and Shadow is doing fine--as long as he has his Musher's Secret applied weekly. He still does have the tumor, but his quality of life for the time he has left has improved. I'm so happy it extended this dog's time with his family. I love this product, and I will definitely be recommending it to my clients and have it available at my office when I am a veterinarian.
"I am a long time user of Musher's Secret...on my dogs.
Several of my afghan hounds have benefited from your product, but recently I found another use for it.
My son, a very active boy, had been trying to break in some new skates and they were REALLY beating him up.
Blisters and bleeding on the bony protuberances of his ankles were effectively hobbling the poor kid...and TRYOUTS were just around the corner. Well, as luck would have it, I was applying your product to my two year old affie, as my son was getting ready for a double session workout, and he was looking really down. I told him to hold up for a minute, pulled back his gear and greased him up right over the painful areas. He skated for TWO HOURS of hard drilling, and came off the ice without a limp. It has since healed up the injured areas and given him back his game. The coaches were stunned (they'd seen the ankles before treatment) and I have relinquished a couple of the 60g jars to grateful smiles. I think you have half a dozen new customers and we WILL be getting the word out. Nothing short of MIRACULOUS!!
Thank you AGAIN!" MJ Sibley

"I just wanted to thank you so much for your Musher’s Secret paw protection. My poor terrier mix was limping and hopping even during very short outings this brutal New York City winter, and sometimes I had to carry him home. A friend recommended Musher’s, and although the tub cost $30, I bought it and tried it immediately: wow! Freddie is now a happy, mobile dog again outside on snow, ice, and salt. Unbelievable! I am really grateful: thank you!"
