The 1 pound can is the best bang for your buck. You will need a knife or a screw driver to open it. It's designed like a paint can to keep the air out. I can open it with the flat edge of my knife.

Getting this size is a great way to make sure you'll have plenty when you need it. I keep it in my truck all season, just in case.

I seldom need protection from snow and ice, but I use Musher's Secret on my dogs pads when we run in the sand. I find it protects there feet the same way that waxing my boots makes them last longer. Musher's Secret is easy to use and I prefer it over boots as long as there are no sand spurs.

On long trips I use it to make sure my dogs feet hold up for the entire hunt. It's a great product.

Transcript from Steve's Video:

We're looking at Mushers Secret today. It's one of my favorite products for dog pads. Dogs' pads are really the most important part about them from a running standpoint. You've got to have them in good condition. You've got to have them where they can hold up under a lot of pressure.

I do a lot of hunting in really dry environments, so I deal with a lot of sand. Mushers Secret was originally designed for dogs to run in the snow. The concept behind it was that you'd put the Musher Secret, a wax type product, in between the pads and it would keep snow and ice from forming inside the dog's pads. That was the original design for it.

But what I use it for is to condition the pads so that they can be protected from sand burn. It's not uncommon if I have a dog whose pads are not in good shape at the beginning of the season for them to blow a pad. That's where the top of the pad gets ripped off and you are down for about two weeks if your pads come apart like that.

So Musher Secret, to me, the best way to explain it, it's kind of like waxing a boot. It keeps the pads strong and supple. That's just really what it feels like. I put in on my dogs prior to running them. When you get through after an hour, hour and a half, when you look at the pads you can just see the difference between them. Like I said, the best way to describe it is taking a pair of boots and they are dried out, old, and they are going to crack. Pads will do the exact same thing. So Mushers Secret is a great product for that. I use it especially early in the season and it keeps my dogs' pads in great shape.




"We hunt dry, rocky country. Boots only fill up with sand and rocks that chew up his feet. We are also hilly so high top boots scuff up his legs. No need for boots when I keep up with the Mushers Secret."

By: Bob

Hunts.

My dog has dry cracked pads from allergies (he licks at them).
Mushers Secret is the only salve that helps. Bag Balm makes the pads too soft if used every day, and then they crack very badly. Mushers Secret holds in moisture, solves the chronic cracking. The more I can smear on the better his feet get.

"The claims of it being odorless and non-staining are true. And I think it keeps the paw pads soft and prevents cracking."

By: David Wright

Mixed. Family pet.

I've used Musher's Secret for the past two winters in Connecticut. My dog's paws are more like Golden Retrievers' and he always used to gets snow balls between his pads during hikes. Musher's Secret is great in preventing the formation of snow balls - I use it all the time. The claims of it being odorless and non-staining are true - and it\'s a great skin moisturizer as well for hands. And I think it keeps the paw pads soft and prevents cracking. I've recommended it to others.

"As a veterinary technician I see a lot of abused and neglected canine feet. This product moisturizes, protects from heat, cold and snowballing and is wonderful for dogs that work too hard to be bothered with boots."

By: Alexander

Pit/Lab X. Hunts. Family pet.

As a veterinary technician I see a lot of abused and neglected canine feet.

This product moisturizes, protects from heat, cold and snowballing and is wonderful for dogs that work too hard to be bothered with boots.

My 50lb mix will spend hours in rough, close woodlands as well as doing rock climbs, where MS keeps her pads soft for grip. I have recommended this product to people in my medical practice and will continue to do so.

For best results I pack it well into the center of the foot so it can soak through the entire pad, with most foot pad treatments the consistency won't allow for this and the product is worn off the pad in minutes.

Probably its best application is keeping wintertime snow and road salt from directly contacting the foot and causing damage. Thank you for selling it; it isn't the easiest thing to find in stores!

"On the -10 deg day my dog didn't mind the cold snow at all, while my companion's dogs were whimpering and tiptoeing around, until we put some on their feet. Used it on my face that day to prevent frostbite. I am excited to find the 1 lb size instead of the 60 gram. I am going to buy 2 pounds."

By: Eric Kress

We had a lot of snow (often 1-2 feet) and cold (down to -10 deg F) in Nov-Dec in Montana in 2010. Then hunted 9 days of Chukar in Idaho in Jan til it closed. It also was cold and snowy along with the rocks and cliffs that chukars love. Discovering Musher's Secret was a godsend this year. It completely prevents snow buildup and greatly reduces the sore pads these conditions can cause.

My female is 11. I had to have one of her toes amputated. Someone told me that Musher's Secret was good for many things: I was going on two months, and she wouldn't leave her paw alone. I started using Musher's Secret, and something in it has allowed her to leave her paw alone and the final stages of healing!! YEAH!!

Musher's is the only product we've found that keeps snow/ice balls from forming between our dogs pads. It generally lasts for several hours and is easy to apply even in cold weather. It's also good for conditioning dry pads, and helps heal our dogs raw tail tips (resulting from hunting in briars and heavy brush).

This is a pretty great product. It will condition pads and protect them during hunting. I have used it to keep paws from becoming snow packed, and it also helps keep burs out. Also used it on cut paws. First used EMT Gel and then used the mushers wax to seal it up and keep the dirt out. Can't say enough about this product! Use it every time we take a dog out.

Video of Mushers Secret All-Natural Paw Protection -- 1 lb.



Mushers Secret is a dense barrier wax that forms a breathable bond with your dog's paws. Developed in Canada for use as a pad protector for sledding dogs, it provides protection even in the most extreme conditions. Perfect for dogs who don't like boots on their feet!

Made from 100% safe and natural waxes, Musher's Secret won't stain carpet, is non-toxic, never goes bad, and is easy to use. The semi-permeable shield is absorbed into the paws, allowing perspiration to escape through the toes. Excellent for preventing snowballing and saltburn on your dog's toes in the winter and protects paws against sandburn and hot asphalt in summer. Apply a small amount on and in-between your dog's toes. If snowballing re-occurs, just reapply. Wipe off excess after use.

Also can be used for protection and soothing relief from fly bitten ears, open sores, cracked toes, nicks, scratches, and burns. Just apply a small amount to the affected area as needed.

Country of Origin: Made in Canada.
