Use Tuf-Foot to toughen and protect your dog's soft, cracked, sore and tender feet. It also aids in protecting paws and pads against bruises, blisters, bleeding and soreness. Tuf-Foot even acts as a fine healing agent for cuts and scratches, often with results in just a few days. You can also use Tuf-Foot to prepare your dogs paws for special occasions. Whether your dog needs to assist in the hunt, pull a sled, search through rubble, or just hang out in the yard, Tuf-Foot can help keep his paws and pads in excellent condition. Amber colored liquid. 7 fl. oz bottle. Made in the USA since 1935.

Directions: Use one to two times daily up two weeks prior to the event for which you are preparing. Afterwards, apply twice a week to maintain pads. Application rates and results may vary depending on conditions.

  • Contains no harmful chemicals, so it is safe for your dog to lick his foot after application.
  • May stain carpets or other fabrics. Apply and let dry in locations where staining will not occur.
  • Safe for use on all domestic animals and humans.
  • 3-year shelf life.

    Active Ingredients:

    Isopropyl alcohol, balsam peru, tincture of benzoin, less than 5% acetone.

    "For the last two years I have been training a Shepard for urban search and rescue. Within two weeks of using Tuf-Foot she didn't have a crack left in her paws and has not cut her feet since." -- Janet from Auburn, WA

    "I want you to know how much I've come to rely on Tuf-Foot for keeping my bird dogs pads and tails in good shape. There is nothing like it when it comes to toughening up a dog's feet prior to and during the hunting season. It's the only remedy I use for cut and briar wounds, and to treat those bloody tails on my English Setters." -- Jim, Peyton Ferry Farm, Bowman, GA.

    Sometimes called Tough Foot, toughfoot, tuff foot, tuffoot, tufffoot or Tough Feet.

  • Tuf-Foot Pad Protector

    We have been using Tuf-Foot on our dogs for close to 30 years. It's a great way to get your dogs' pads in top condition before hunting season. I prefer to start using it a couple of weeks before I start running them. We apply it a couple of times a day when possible.

    I also use it during the year as a preventative. It soaks in good and can get to small cuts deep in between your dogs pads.

    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    A product I've been using probably close to 30 years now is Tuf-Foot. A dog is only as good as his feet. And early season we can have a lot of trouble with pads with dogs. Tuf-Foot is designed to toughen the pads on your dog. I recommend you start using it as least two weeks prior to season. Apply it at least twice a day. It will strengthen the pads and make them easier for that first couple of weeks of hunting.

    My pup ware his paws raw huntin'. He could barely walk. Used Tuf-Foot along with EMT Gel and a week later he was back out huntin'. This doesn't mean every dog will have this level of recovery, but I was very pleased with the results.

    My dog doesn't protest when I use this on his foot though he's usually too sensitive about such.
    It worked great for helping to heal a nasty pad cut.

    • Easy to apply,
    • Works..

    I have been having foot issues hiking and discovered that what we used for the dogs is safe for humans. Easy order and quickly received. 18 miles this past weekend and no blisters!

    Used on Labrador retriever that goes in some tough conditions. It has toughed the pads and when he did get cut up, bound to happen, it healed up quickly.

    My dogs are not working dogs, but they enjoy joring or bike running. The only place I can do this is on the street. This tore up my dogs pads and were not able to go out as often as my pups would like.
    With in the first week of use, their pads became soft and they didn't limp after long runs(they both can go for about 1.5 miles a piece.) Fast forward to about 2 weeks and it's usually my soreness and not theirs that determines if we go for a bike run or not nowadays.
    As far as the order, I received my order in less than two weeks from the processing date And that is a miracle shipping out to Hawaii. Thanks GDS! New customer very satisfied!
    • Easy to use
    • Easy to apply
    • Very strong smell! Seriously use this outside, the smell is nice but is overpowering and can linger.

    Works very well; keeps my dogs' paws protected from tears and slicing from a hard day of upland bird hunting.

    I use it in combination with some other stuff. It firms the pads up, keeps them looking healthy and heals wounds.

    My whippet who does lure coursing often slips pads when the ground is hard in the summer. So, I used the product as directed for 2 weeks. First time he has not slipped pads on the same field at this time of year. Not having to wrap his feet gives him better proprioception and he ran beautifully.
    • Easy to apply. It works!
    • Dog hates the squirt bottle, fine with applying with a cotton square. Strong odor.

    Tuf foot
    September 9, 2021
    Tuf foot does just what it says. My lab lost most of a pad right before dove season. Tuf foot helps her grow the new pad back with no infection or complications. She hunted the first 5 days of season with a protective boot to keep from damaging what had started to heal.q
    • Great product .

    Makes pads tougher
    September 5, 2021
    Dog wasn't thrilled about having something applied to his paws but I could tell there was a difference in pad toughness. First few days on the field this fall I pulled a spike out that jad not penetrated far.
    • Works as advertised
    • Smell will linger so apply in a ventilated area. Says it will stain carpets, etc.

    I used TUF-FOOT last season and it helped prevent pad injuries. This is the second bottle I have ordered from Gun Dog Supply.

    Does it work? YES

    Works great with my family pet. Been applying it once a day before our morning walks. He doesn’t seem to mind the spray/smell at all. Most of our walks are on pavement and tuf-foot helps my dog run miles without injury.
    Soft pads!
    • Smells good
    • Works great
    • Doesn't bother the dog

    I would give this product a 5 star review if I knew for sure it was the product that kept our new dog's pads in good condition and she was not just genetically predisposed to have tough pads. She came to us with undamaged pads; however, because we run her a lot, I proactively used Tuf-Foot. Her pads are still in good condition.
    • Dries fast
    • Dog does not lick it
    • Strong smell (can only use outdoors)

    Tuff Foot has been around for years. Great product and there is no better place to buy from than Steve and Gun Dog Supply! Apply as recommended to optimize use. A must for roading and running dogs on sandy or rocky terrain.

    Relief for cracking pads, no more lame dogs
    December 23, 2020
    Thinking the bird hunting season was over because the hunting dogs were limping. Upon closer inspection the problem was not in the leg or shoulder, it was their pads. Spraying Tuff Foot on the pads, first 3 days twice a day and twice a week after that was the remedy, and rescue of the upland bird hunting season!
    By Jim O.
    Works great!

    After 3 days of hunting in Kansas my Lab's pads were severely worn. I purchased Tuf-Foot and was able to get them back in shape before a trip to SD. The product was shipped promptly, well packed, and worked as advertised. Thanks J. Orr Georgetown TX.

    This is the BEST product for toughening up soft feet!
    December 21, 2020
    I have white-footed Australian Shepherds whom have very soft pads. I found this product a while back after one of my dogs burned all of his pads off and was limping badly. This product got him back to functional w/in a week and now I proactively apply it several weeks in advance whenever I know I'm about to put a lot of miles on the dogs and they don't blow their pads any more. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
    • Dries quickly & it works!
    • Will stain carpet, apply outside and allow to dry before letting dog inside the house.

    This spray does seem to help with protecting, toughening and disinfecting foot drapes, abrasions, and otherwise dry conditions. Though you have to be careful about stains and a little leak from the nozzle, otherwise it’s perfect.
    • Easy to use, helps with recovery and protectant.
    • Stains and slight leak from the nozzle

    Great product

    I use this product pre season and during it has worked great. I have not had tender foot issues since I started using it.
    • Don't have tender foot problems

    Too soon to say how well it works. Did heal some cracks nicely. The spray seems to waste it and a cotton ball just is worthless.

    This stuff works great! Everytime I take my pointer out, his pads get tore off. I used Tuf Foot approx. 4 days before going out again. No more sore feet so far.
