This looks like a great idea . . . what do you think?

Since I always get such great advice here, I thought I'd check in with the group before ordering this for the gang. It look like a great solution to those dirty paws instead of having to dip them in the sink all the time. Has anyone ever bought one of these. I'm seriously thinking of getting it.

Oops, just saw the recommended weight for the dogs. Might not work after all.

Okay, I found something else. Now that the boys are (hopefully) easier to clean I want to keep my floors, furniture and carpets cleaner too. What about this?

Geri, I saw some super-absorbent microfiber stuff for dogs in the pet section at Bed, Bath&Beyond and I think a decent sized towel was only $13 or so. You can also use those for after bath drying.

We use a rubbermaid plastic container (those rectangular ones with the flat bottoms), fill partway with lukewarm water, dip each dog's paw in and wipe off with a Sham Wow (silly name for a towel!). Works fine and costs virtually nothing except for the plastic container and towel.

Thanks! Much cheaper alternatives. I'll go that route.

We have a stainless steel bowl that "lives" under the sink, very close to the back door. We fill it with about 2" of warm water, dip paws, scrub between toes, and dry with a small towel (that also "lives" under the sink). We have 2 towels that rotate - one is usually in the wash while the other is usually under the sink. The dogs aren't fond of their peticures, but they know what to expect and are tolerant.

Geri, here are my tools to clean paws:

Small bowl of water (if too muddy)
baby wipes,
Waterless Foam bath
Shamwow (Bed, Bath and Beyond) to dry them.

Best, Poornima

I hope I can get the guys comfortable with this without spilling the water all over and making more of a mess. My ultimate goal, less work for me.

Geri, I just put a big towel under the container of water. My guys have always been used to getting their paws wiped after every walk, pee and potty break. It's quite funny, Benji hates his muddy paws and refuses to come inside until I pick him and wipe his paws.

Best, Poornima
