Do you and your canine companion love seeking new adventures like hikes, beach time, and other outdoor activities? Our pup’s paws are made to protect them against injury and harsh environments. However, they need some extra support.
Our PawTection Travel Stick is easy-to-use wherever you are and is a packed, powerful, protective blend of essential vitamins and plant oils crafted to create a nourishing barrier for your dog’s paw pads.
With all-natural, vegan ingredients like Mango butter, carnauba wax, lavender essential oil, and more, you can rest assured knowing your dog’s paws are safe and ready for any excursion!
PawTection armors 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, & mold
Dogs are born with incredibly smooth and sensitive paw pads meant for walk through nature, not concrete sidewalks and other human-based environments. Wear and tear on their paw pads can cause some severe damage and discomfort.
Next time you head out on a walk or a hike to the top of the mountain and any active fun in between, be sure to glide on some PawTection!
Distract, apply, & reward!
With a distraction in tow (we love training treats or maybe their favorite toy) clean up any excess dirt or debris evident around the affected area. Twist a small amount of PawTection up from the stick and gently rub a generous amount onto affected area. Allow the area to dry (a nice belly rub always does the trick!) and follow up with a treat or play time for a positive reward!
Apply anytime before going outside or before exposing your pup’s paws to any potentially harmful condition.
Pro-pup Tip: For pawsome results, use in conjunction with our Paw Soother balm.
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.
WILL PAWTECTION MAKE MY DOG’S PAWS SOFT AND MORE PRONE TO INJRY?:
Check out our blog article detailing (and debunking) these concerns here. Dog paw pads are naturally thick, but they should not be overly dry. Dry, chapped paw pads are more prone to injury from splitting and cracking. Healthy, moisturized paws will flex rather than split and actually allow dogs to get a better grip! Dry paws do not have any traction and dogs will have a harder time walking on smooth surfaces. Many customers use our Paw Soother and PawTection for agility training to help give dogs much better contact, safety and speed.
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!
Our ingredients are organic, plant-based, and never compromised. With the highest quality and natural healing properties, these balms are effective, safe, and will leave your pup living its best life!
