Musher's Secret is a dense, barrier wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Developed in Canada for use with sledding dogs, it provides tenacious protection even in the most extreme conditions including icy snow and salting chemicals.

Musher's Secret is made with 100% natural food-grade waxes and is completely non-toxic and fragrance-free. It excels at preventing build-up of snow and ice on paws and protection from “salt burn” caused by ice-melting chemicals. Like the name implies, this "Secret" formula was developed by "Mushers" to protect their sled dogs' paws against all the rigors of a harsh working-dog winter. Regular application of Musher's Secret prevents ice build up between the toes, paw pads from cracking, and old calloused paws from slipping on slick surfaces. In addition, when The Secret of Mushers is applied regularly, it creates a semi-permeable shield that prevents paw pads from cracking as a result of dryness and seals the paw from excessive external moisture.

And we know it's the middle of February, but The Secret of Mushers is also an essential tool in the summer. It soothes fly-bitten ears and helps keep biting insects off. Not only that, but it can reduce the sizzle your dogs' feet feel on August asphalt.

Directions for Dog use: Apply sparingly on and between toe pads. No need to shave hair. Re-apply as needed. In heavy salt conditions, wipe paws with a clean soft cloth when returning indoors to remove excess salt and other contaminants.
