    Did a 15 minute soak with the Johnson's Foot Soap and he liked it! Imagine a double-sided sink, filled 3 inches up in both basins with the soap, and 2 paws on one side & 2 paws on the other.....had to enertain him for the entire time so he wouldn't lick the water but he was pretty good.... Drained the water and used the sprayer to rinse his feet....oh boy are they soft today and he was definitely more comfortable last night.

    Generally haven't met a dog of any kind that likes boots/socks lol

    I'm pretty good with wiping feet but need to be more consistent ...and that's interesting about the lysterine, have used it in the past in a 50/50 ratio with water to de-skunk a dog, luckily Schultz hasn't tangled with any skunks in his life....so far...

    @BrooklynStar
    Allergies are the bane of the bulldog world- foot licking/biting is a symptom of allergies but the allergen could be anything - could be food or just 1 ingredient in the food, a cleaning product, pollen in the air, dust or dust mites, etc...the list is endless ...I'm going to have Schultz tested for allergies end of this month...I know he has them, I know it's going to be a sizable list but it might help me to figure out what I can eliminate to keep him under his threshold of displaying the symptoms.

    Thank you everyone for your ideas!

    Wilson just started with his feet too the other day. He chewed himself a bit raw in one spot. I put him in him in the tub and washed his feet, then dried them, used some witch hazel and some cornstarch. That was three days ago and he's left his feet alone. He has grass allergies. That seemed to work so well I'll clean them that way more often.

    @NigelsMom....we have used this stuff on our fosters with bad paw pads...it's called "Protecta-Pad". It's a cream that comes in a little jar. You just rub it on their pads and it softens them up in no time. It smells minty too which I love. Unfortuantly it won't help with the itching though.

    You're welcome! He has the same problem with his feet last year, especially after the grass was mowed. I would clean them off with a rag but never did it like I did the other day (just didn't know what I know now). I used a little baby shampoo do on the wash cloth and then had a cup to fill with water to get it all off. Total time was like 5 minutes. He's still leaving his feet alone. Might just do that for him once a week.

    @JeannieCO, never thought of corn starch, I do use the witch hazel but he just licks that off, I will have to try some of that tonight. I have Gold Bond medicated foot powder, I was thinking of using that??????

    It really helped dry his pads. I used it on the bottom too. His once foot was so red.

    I think that Raven might have some grass allergies a well. Once we go outside for her to go potty she tends to start itching a bit on her face and ears. Praying this doesn't get worse as spring kicks into gear and the grass starts growing.

    Hi all, interesting thread. I was just signing on to ask a question about this. We noticed a couple weeks ago that Wally was really licking one of his paws (maybe both) and then last week he developed and intermittent limp. We took him to the vet and she told us she couldn't find anything wrong with his leg so it was probably his paw. Could the licking and the limp be related? She suggested we soak his feed in warm water in case he has a splinter that is under the pad or something.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks as always for everyone's help!
