Keep those paws cute.
Rain. Snow. Salt. Ice. Heat. Dirt. Rocks.
These are just some of the things my pups’ paws have to put up with while living in Michigan. No matter the season, our daily walks are just plain mean to paws. Hello, worried dog mama! When I started noticing rough, dry and cracked paws on my pups I knew I had to do something.
I started with my usual DIY route. How can I help them with what I already have in my house? We started by just putting coconut oil on everyday, which was ineffective for one reason… pups LOVE coconut oil! They just licked it all off. Honestly, I can’t blame them!
So, I started my product hunt and stumbled upon Natural Dog Company. With all natural and mostly organic creams, balms and salves for a pup’s every need, this company was calling my name.

Was Natural Dog Company the cure to my pups’ paw woes?
As soon as our package arrived, the pups and I were off and experimenting with Pawtection, Paw Soother, and Snout Soother. Since each of these products do different things it only makes sense to review them individually!
Think of this as your dog’s shoes. Dogs paws are soft and sensitive. They’re meant for walking out in nature, not pavement. We get to wear shoes, but our pups (usually) don’t (My pups do wear Pawz Booties in extreme weather!). This balm acts as a protective barrier for your dog’s paws to help prevent damage. It’s brilliant. Since it has Organic Carnauba Wax, the strongest wax around, it goes on thick and does exactly what it’s supposed to do. Learn from my mistakes: I would suggest putting this on right before you walk out the door so your pups aren’t running balm all around your house. And, when you come in from your walk, make sure you have a wet towel ready to clean off their paws. Since it’s a thick balm, dirt sticks to their paws much easier, and you don’t want that all over your couch!
This balm works best in conjunction with Pawtection. It’s meant to soothe (obvi) dry and damaged paws and restore their cuteness! It does just that. This balm has so many quality ingredients like organic coconut oil, organic hempseed oil, organic jojoba oil, and even chamomile, I knew there was no way it wouldn’t work! Within a day or two I saw significant improvements in their paws. It’s like magic! I’ve learned for it to be most effective, put this on your pups right before bedtime. If they’re like mine, they’re sleepy and they don’t care what I do to them as long as they’re tucked in under a comfy blanket! Another reason why I put it on at bedtime is so there’s less chance of them walking around the house and wearing it all off. If they can soak it up while they sleep, the results come that much faster!
To be completely honest, this is the least favorite in our household. For one reason only – I can’t get my pups to leave it on for more than 0.2 seconds! As soon as I rub it on their noses, they start licking and licking until there’s nothing left. They’re relentless. So, sadly, I don’t know how well this one works. Anyone have tips and tricks for getting your dogs to keep this on?! Help this dog mama out!
There are SO many things I love about this company. I care about what ingredients are in my products so it only makes sense that I would do the same for my dogs. (Of course, their food is just as healthy and clean!) In fact, Natural Dog Company products are even cleaner than some of the things I have in my bathroom cabinet…
I love these products so much that I applied to be an affiliate and was accepted! (Almost as exciting as when I got my college acceptance letter…kinda.) They sent me a whole pack of chapstick-sized products to test out, and the pups are so excited (or maybe just I am).
Natural Dog Company deserves many puppy kisses and of course, the CO Stamp of Approval!!
