Musher’s Secret protects year round. In those warm summer months it protects against hot pavement, sand and other surfaces. In those cold months it protects from the harshness of snow. Did you know Musher’s Secret wax was developed in Canada to protect the paws of their sledding dogs? What the experts came up with is a formula that is a safe, all natural waxy barrier that is dog friendly and durable for nearly all environmental challenges.

What is Musher's Secret made of?

Let me tell you. Musher’s secret semipermeable shield is made of 100% natural waxes. These include white and yellow beeswax, Carnauba and Candelilla wax. The Carnauba wax is sourced from northeastern Brazilian fan palm leaves (Copernicia Prunifera). The bees wax is secreted by bees in the production of honeycombs. Oh, and that Candelilla wax? The Candelilla wax originates from a shrub found in the southwest of the United States. Hiking in that area? Be on the lookout for Euphorbia Antisyphilitica. For a little added bonus the Musher’s Secret contains vegetable oils and Vitamin E...

By now, you may be wondering how to apply this waxy product. How do you apply Musher's Secret?

A simple way to apply Musher’s Secret is to lightly coat the paws. If you are solving to prevent snowballing, then it is vital to apply the product between the pads. Reapply as needed and have treats on standby. Depending on your adventure, be prepared to apply and inspect the paws more frequently. For general, year-round protection, a once a week application may be sufficient. Musher’s Secret isn’t just for the sleddog. Do you have a scout, hunting, or any other dog that goes outdoors on adventures with you? Because if so this is the product our experts recommend and we’re thrilled to offer it in our catalog.
