Save a little when you buy the medium size. I can almost make it through the season on one can.

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.

"I would suggest this to anyone planning to do any late season hunting, or even having a dog outdoors during the winter."

By: Chris From MN

Hunts. Family pet. I just wanted to share with anyone considering this product for snow use...that it's extremely effective! I was able to try it out for the first time this weekend here in Southern MN. The snow was just above freezing, causing it to ball up on the back of my Springer's legs in golf ball sized clumps. I put this on her paws on the way out of the truck...just a little on each foot making sure to get it between each toe.

We spent a good 3 hours running through the snow and at the end of it, she had 2 clumps of snow, smaller than the size of a pea on one of her paws...that's it! It was amazing. Last year as a pup, she would get big clumps of snow between each toe just playing in the back yard. I would suggest this to anyone planning to do any late season hunting, or even having a dog outdoors during the winter.

"I wouldn't go without"

By: Nate

Hunts. Before this product, I tried a number of boots and had poor results for various reasons. After finding mushers secret on gundogsupply.com I wouldn't go without. I apply this to my dog's pads during the cold winters of Wisconsin before any outdoor hunting or activity. It keeps his pads protected and healthy. It prevents his pads from drying out and developing cuts/splitting.

"Protected their feet incredibly well, leading to no foot soreness at all"

By: Brad Rosecke From WI

Taking my labs to South Dakota has always meant sore feet for them transitioning to chasing pheasants in the fields there, from Waterfowl hunting in Wisconsin. Leading even to limited hunting time. None of my dogs have tolerated boots well. This year, mushers secret changed that. It protected their feet incredibly well...leading to no foot soreness at all after three long days afield!

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Great product. For some reason, my Setters get almost instant snow/ice balls between their pads whenever I run them in the snow. Gooping this stuff all over the pads and in between the pads truly does mitigate the snow and ice build up. My dogs don't do boots, so this stuff opens up a lot of options for a Minnesota Grouse and Pheasant hunter in Nov/Dec! I strongly recommend the product.

"Did not prevent foot pad abrasions"

GSP. Hunts. Family pet. I used this Musher's Secret on my GSP during a 3-day pheasant hunt in South Dakota. To test it, we did not use the product on another GSP in our group. I was hoping that Musher's Secret would prevent the sores caused by hunting slough grass and crop fields. At the end of the 3 days, there was no difference between the condition of the two dog's feet. The product does not bother the dogs and had no negative effect, but did not prevent foot pad abrasions for these specific conditions. I still gave it 3 stars because it was tested in some of hardest hunting conditions a dog's feet endures. Also, keep in mind that Gun Dog Supply is recommending it for sand burn, which I cannot comment on.

    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.
