Hello! I adore your blog, I rescued a husky gsd mix 6 months ago, and it's been great having your blog as reference! I was wondering if you can recommend toe bean protection other than booties, our pups feet are looking rough. Thank you so much!
Well we do regular bean care! Like nail trims and combing and trimming the fur that grows between the beans. Noodle has A LOT OF THIS so I try to do it often. I use musher’s secret to moisturize beans, but there are other paw moisturizers and you can use coconut oil, thats what many people do. This will keep their beans healthy and keep them from getting rough, cracking, and bleeding. Also during the summer I clean their feet after being outside with baby wipes to avoid allergens clinging to their beans and making them really itchy.
If you don’t want to do booties and are running and stuff I would keep to softer places like grass and dirt, we even have an outdoor padded track that I sometimes use. The heat and damage to beans is why I use the booties, and ani has one leg that is a bit shorter than the other so when I exercise her she wears her booties to prevent injury.
