We have shoes, our pups have PawTection.
If you and your pup love walks, our all-natural, vegan andorganic PawTection balm is a crucial and potent tool to nourish and protect their paws, keeping them healthy. Dogs are born with incredibly smooth and sensitive paw pads meant for walking through nature, not concrete sidewalks and pavements.
Going out for a hike? Spending time at the beach? Even if you’re just going for a stroll around the neighborhood, dogs need some extra support in protecting their paws against potential damage. Contact with harsh surfaces and toxic allergens can cause lots of wear and tear, making paws rough, cracked, and peeled. Damage to their paw pads can be very painful and cause distress in their everyday life. PawTection creates a protective barrier to help lock in moisture and prevent damage.
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 - a 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.
PawTection defends 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
Despite common misconceptions, dog paws are not meant to be dry and rough. Healthy paws should be hydrated, flexible, and spongy. This allows dogs to get a better grip while walking and running in addition to protecting them against injury.
For post-walk soothing, we recommend using PawTection with our complementary Paw Soother.

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. Use two fingers or a low-absorbent cloth to apply a generous amount of PawTection directly over your dog’s paw pads. Paws will be slick after application so allow the area to dry (a nice belly rub always does the trick!) and follow up with a treat or playtime 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!
WILL PAWTECTION MAKE MY DOG'S PAWS SOFT AND MORE PRONE TO INJURY?
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 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!
