I have dark hardwood floors throughout my place so I've trained Emmie to do a sit/stay on a microfiber towel in a corner of the entry way whenever we come in from outside. Then I use baby wipes to wipe the bottom of her feet and if I notice the wipes are really dirty, I go to the kitchen and get a wet paper towel to wipe her feet down more. But if they're still dirty (like this morning), I wash her feet in the kitchen sink. It's a bit of work but now it takes no time at all and the paw prints on the floor have been greatly reduced. I like that with her in a sit/stay, it also gives me a chance to remove my coat and put it away, as well as whatever else I've brought inside (e.g. shopping bags, purse, packages, etc.). Good luck!
