Time to get those paws some protection!
If you and your pup love venturing out on active excursions, the PawTection balm is a crucial tool to protect their paws and keep them healthy. Dog’s paw pads are naturally sensitive and are meant to remain soft and smooth, but exposure to harsh elements and extreme environments can cause some serious damage.
Are you going out for a hike? Spending some time at the beach? Even if you’re going for a stroll around the neighborhood with your pup in tow, they need some extra support in protecting against potential damage.
Nourish and protect your pup’s paws with this vegan, organic, powerful dog paw balm!
PawTector is an organic, vegan, all-natural blend of carefully selected waxes and oils. PawTector is specially formulated to create a nourishing barrier to protect soft and delicate paw pads against the elements, such as heat, cold, sand, salt, and snow.
Dogs are born with incredibly smooth and sensitive paw pads meant for walking through nature, not concrete sidewalks. Contact with harsh surfaces creates a lot of wear and tear, making them rough and scratchy. These harsh surfaces can be very drying, causing paws to crack and peel – which is very painful for pets. PawTector helps to guard against the drying and damaging effects of the elements and lock in moisture.
WHAT USES IS PAWTECTOR RECOMMENDED FOR?
PawTector will provide healing benefits as well as prevent damage from the following:
PawTector creates a protective barrier while also locking in moisture and helping prevent drying and damage.
The ingredients are organic, plant-based, and never compromised. With the highest quality and natural healing properties, these balms are effective, safe, and will leave your pup living its best life!

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. Twist a small amount of PawTection up from the stick and gently rub a generous amount onto affected area. Allow the area to dry (a nice belly rub always does the trick!) and follow up with a treat or play time 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?:
Check out our blog article detailing (and debunking) these concerns here. 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 raw 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!
