I must admit to being a little bit skeptical looking at this product - with my initial reaction being why do I need this? Is it just another gimmick?
I will tell you why you need this - This is such a simple idea in practice, but it is extremely useful for several reasons.
It is soft to the touch - just pop a little warm water in and rub this up and down your dog's paws - the dogs paw is clean and your hands are not filthy!
It is small and portable - so easy to pop in the car for your daily walks. Tip a little water into the cup - clean the paws - stand your dog on a paper or cloth and towel them dry quickly. The dirt is left in the cup and not dragged into your car or house.
I was astounded at the amount of dirt this removed in a very short time. My dog can be really funny when you try to clean her paws but rather than have to fight to get her into a bath after every walk this is much faster and easier.
She found it a little strange at first but when she realised it was not going to be a huge battle she stood and let me do each of her legs.
The sections all split for very easy cleaning with a little bit of soap and water - everything fits back together simply and you are ready to go again.
I have a Mal-Shi and her small paws fit easily into the petite size, but there are a range available to suit different leg lengths - obviously the small will not work with a larger dog such as a Labrador etc so be aware of the size difference when buying.
The photos show the side and top view when you take it out of the box - and there is a picture of the unit separated for cleaning, also one of the pic's shows my dog Millie for size comparison - again this is the PETITE version of the unit that I have .
