Hi, I have two boxers that slip & slide on my fake turf

Customer Question


I have two boxers that slip & slide on my fake turf in the garden as real grass didn't last long. Am thinking of getting Musher's wax that I have heard of for their paws as I know socks will not last on their feet for long. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Musher's Secret is a really nice product. I like it for scrapes and blisters or irritation from snow, too. It's certainly worth a try-- I'm not sure how much actual grip it will give them, but it's at worst harmless.

You can also find a variety of boots online with varying amounts of tread on the bottom. It often takes dogs a few days to get used to wearing something on their feet, but they last longer than socks and may help.
