Musher's Secret FAQ

How often should I use Musher's Secret?

It depends on the activity level of your dog. Mushers will "walk off" in about a week. In snowy conditions, or heavy outdoor activity it can be used 2-3 times a week. Some people use it more often than this in summer months.

In snowy weather, be sure to spread Mushers up in between the pads to prevent snowballing.

Is it ok if my dog licks his paws after I apply Mushers?

Absolutely, dogs like the taste, and ingredients are all 100% natural waxes. Applying just before going out will limit licking.

Is Musher's Secret just for the winter?

Definitely not. Mushers protects from pavement, rough terrain, sand as well as any irritants your pet may walk through. There are many Musher's secret customers in hot arid climates. *(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 to help condition the pads - letting them acclimate & toughen to the terrain slowly over time)

Will Mushers stain my clothes or carpet?

No. Mushers is absorbed into the pads and will not leave stains on your carpets or furniture.

What happens if my dog eats Musher's Secret?

Other than a mild laxative effect, Mushers will not harm you pet if he eats it.
