Muddy Paws? We Have Solutions!

By JennaDrady. | Dog Health

The weather is warming up, the flowers will start to bloom, the grass will start to turn green, the ground will get... muddy.

Muddy Paws Tips for Your Pet Dogs Muddy paws is a never ending issue we pet parents have to face. Especially in the Spring season. There are some solutions that can help though, but best of all - prevention! Prevention is key when it comes to muddy paws. Not that we can technically prevent paws from getting dirty, because let's face it, there is simply no way around that. But what we can prevent is keeping those muddy paws off of our clean floors as well as our furniture.

But how you ask?

  • Purchase a floor runner for inside your door. One made from absorbent material would be best to help soak up the mud.
  • Have a towel handy right inside your door.
  • Try a bucket of water. Keep it just outside your door, and before your pooch comes in, dip his paws in the water, give them a quick dry with a towel. This will help keep the majority of mud out of your house.
  • Disposable wipes. While this can get costly, I would recommend a towel instead, however disposable wipes can come in handy in a pinch!
  • Teach your dog to wipe his paws! This sounds more complicated than it actually is.
  • Contain it. If you are lucky enough to have a door that leads straight to your kitchen or somewhere with an easy to clean floor - sometimes a baby gate to contain them to one area is a great idea. Once you get their paws all cleaned off, a quick mop will be much faster than having to chase your pooch all over the house cleaning muddy paw prints.
  • Paw cleaning mitt! Yes they make these! And they are super handy. The mitt allows better control over your pups paw without having to hang onto a towel while you attempt a paw clean!
  • If your dog is anxious about having his paws touched, try feeding yummy high value treats while you dry him up.
  • Boots! If your dog will wear them, throw on a pair of booties before going out to play in the mud!

A combination of some of these can be very useful as well. My top recommended steps are as follows:

  • Purchase a runner for your floor wherever the dog comes inside from.
  • Dip your pups paws in a bucket of water just outside your door.
  • Quick towel dry once inside on the runner.
There you have it, keep those paws clean, but don't be afraid to get a little muddy! Do you have any tips to add to this list? Share with us in the comments! Muddy Paws and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

Split rear seat cover (no hammock) and Split cargo liner

I just purchased these items to use in an Infiniti QX30. The small cargo liner fits well with lots to tuck underneath - so good coverage if I need to drape it over the bumper for loading camping gear, etc. The regular split seat cover is just a tidge big, but with some tucking here and there it covers the seat well. Good quality and prompt service. I recommend this product.

This product is amazing and so is the company. I was concerned it wouldn't fit my F350 Super Duty crew cab. I emailed them to ask and they responded really quick. I got the cover and it is everything they show it is & more. It fits perfect. I also bought the side covers for the doors in the back.
