I really love using Musher's Secret on my dogs paws for rough terrain (hot/rocky terrain, ice, snow):

thanks I will have to check that stuff out, I noticed him favoring his rear paws the other day when we came inside from the cold and snow. he was better once his paws warmed up, maybe I can take him out a bit longer with this on, he wont be pullin a sled or anything so maybe it will last a while Big Grin

But it's not always about pads. Thorns, spines, even really stiff dry grass can stab and break off between their toes.

Very true.  Mushers Secret won't protect against that.  I always do a check once we get back from hiking or other outdoor adventures by 1) checking between the pads of the feet for stickers, burrs, and foxtails.  If i had applied mushers secret before the hike I'd wipe the leftovers off with a soft towel.  2) Feel all over the body for stickers or other things that should not be there.  3) Brush/pull out the found stickers - this is especially important for me because my pup has a thick double coat and HATES having stuff stuck in it.  He will spend a long time ripping the stickers out himself and can damage his coat and skin if I leave it to him. Undecided   In fact, it's so important that I keep his brush with me in his backpack/canine 1st aid kit!
