Ok the snow is starting to melt here and the ground is getting really muddy. I hate letting my dogs out in it. Because I have to run them to the sink everytime and it is a pain! I need some suggestions from fellow pet owners in how you deal with this issue. Is there something I can buy to put on their feet? I mean they get too dirty to just wipe it off with a towel. They are corgis and so they are really low to the ground and it gets on their tummy's. So if anyone can help me out that would be great!!! Thanks!!

They make rain boots for dogs paws, but I'm not sure how much they're going to like that. Personally when it gets muddy here, I just fill a pitcher with water and pour the water on their feet and use my hand to get the dirt off and let them in the house with wet paws, it's just water so it doesn't hurt the carpet. And then I only let them outside a couple of times a day and only long enough to go to the bathroom (I watch from the door and when they are done they come straight in). That means more inside play time and turning up the volume on the TV a bit more than typical, but it keeps them much cleaner and cuts down on my work load for the day. I've had good success with doing it that way.

Good luck!

If you have a porch or area you can leave them on for a bit, just put them there until they've dried off then just brush the mud off of them. If you don't have a room stick them n their crates until they dry. It sure helps and it's better for their coats. Just let the mud dry and take a brush and brush it out. That or what I did when I didn't have a screened in prch and even less space to put crates by the door, is I kept a towel right there handy. I'd let them in one at a time, and dry each one off then let the next one in.
