PawTection + Travel
Do crusty, cracked, paws stop your pup from venturing out with you on a hike or long walk around the block? Have you ever wondered how they protect their paws when dealing with harsh elements like extreme temperatures, ice, snow, allergens, and more?
With our PawTection healing balm, you can rest assured your canine companion’s paws are protected and ready for the next epic adventure! Whether big or small, our PawTection & Travel set every dog-owners go-to balm for armoring those sensitive paw pads.
Now you can have the power of PawTection in your back pocket, at home in the doggy medicine cabinet, and never again will your dog have to opt-out of playtime because of painful paws!
Hot concrete, harsh temperatures, and toxic allergens can leave your dog’s paws rough, cracked, and peeled. Damage to their paw pads can be painful and can cause distress within their everyday life.
Our PawTection healing balm creates a nourishing, protective barrier for your pup’s paw pads allowing them to run free on any adventure year-round! This topical treatment is easy to use and is a potent tool in armoring your dog for any environment, using only natural, organic, plant-based ingredients.
PawTection defends paws against damage from:
- Hot surfaces such as pavement, gravel, sand, concrete, decks, etc.
- Harsh elements like ice, salt, snow, rough terrain, & extreme temperatures
- Reduces the effect of contact with allergens including grass, pollen, and mold
Essential oils like ylang ylang and lavender help soothe irritation and balance dryness while supple mango butter combats free radicals and deeply moisturizes paw pads.
We have shoes, and our pups have PawTection.
Distract, apply & reward!
Distractions are key. Using treats (peanut butter works great), applying right before mealtime, or following with a belly rub are positive, effective ways to allow time for the product to work it's magic!
Before applying any balm, clean up any excess dirt or debris evident around the affected area.
Stick Application | Twist a small amount of PawTection or Paw Soother up from the stick and gently glide a generous amount of our protective balm directly over your dog's paw pads.
Tin Application | Use two fingers or a low-absorbent cloth to apply a generous amount of PawTection or Paw Soother directly over your dog’s paw pads.
Paws will be slick after application so allow the area to dry with your pup's favorite distraction.
PawTection is best applied before going outdoors.
- Many customers have used baby socks after applying balms to paws to prevent licking and to create an ultra healing environment for the paws to absorb the natural butters and oils.
- For the most pawsome results, use in conjunction with our sister product - Paw Soother. Paw Soother heals existing damage and dryness making paws smooth and soft.
WHAT USES IS PAWTECTION RECOMMENDED FOR?
PawTection will provide healing benefits as well as prevent damage from the following:
- HOT surfaces such as: pavement, sidewalks, gravel, rocks, sand, stone, concrete, decks, etc.
- Harsh elements such as: salt, snow, ice, rough terrain, extreme temperatures, etc.
- Helps to reduces effects of contact with allergens, like grass, pollen, or mold.
PawTection creates a protective barrier while also locking in moisture and helping prevent drying and damage.
WHAT IF MY DOG LICKS IT OFF?:
Natural Dog Company products are 100% natural, safe and edible. Our products will still work even if most of it is licked off. Though, for best results, we advise using distractions. Give your dog a raw bone to chew on, a yummy treat, dinner, or play with them for a few minutes until the carrier oils have had a chance to work it’s magic. We hear peanut butter works great!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PAW SOOTHER AND PAWTECTION?
PawTection is used to prevent damage, while Paw Soother is used to heal existing damage. PawTection is a natural wax blend, so it provides a nourishing barrier between the paw and harsh surfaces and conditions such as hot pavement, sand, salt, ice, and snow. Paw Soother is a butter blend meant to smooth, soften, moisturize and heal dry, damaged, peeling, and cracked paw pads. Think: PawTection before going outside, Paw Soother before bed. Both have amazing collaborating qualities – making them the pawfect team!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I APPLY PAWTECTION?
For best results, use PawTection before going outside. Reapply periodically when exposed to harsh conditions such as ice and snow and especially really hot pavement. Dogs feel pain on their paws!
