If you think his paws are getting irritated, then I would buy some "paw" cream or balm. I'm not sure what they are...lots of products, I think...but one that you can buy at the drugstore is called "Bag Balm". My daughters were high level gymnasts and used to get "rips" all the time from doing bars, etc., and bought Bag Balm to soften them. I think the original purpose was to soften cow teats, lol.

If you don't- claim it, it's- mine!

I've heard great things about bag balm as well and musher's secret, we are currenly using excel paw safe for conditioning and it't not too shabby.
