    Hello everyone!
    My name’s Kate and I am a happy owner of a Hasky boy.
    I am always concerned about my dogs paws cleanness, because he’s allowed in bed and I want to make sure his paws are clean enough. But I cannot make them clean enough manually and it takes so much time besides. So what do you personally think about it? How often do you clean your dogs’ paws and is it challenging for you?

    Uh... it has never occurred to me to clean my dog's paws... If they're particularly muddy I make them run around in the field with the taller grass to wash it off some, that's about it.
    I just wipe floors a lot.

    But then I walk around barefoot half the time and get in the bed with my bare feet....

    I just use a towel on his paws and belly as well. He's not keen because he doesn't like anyone touching his paws but he knows he has to be done. I think there's no chance in hell he'd put his paws in some kind of gadget.

    Besides which, it's the time of year when mud is part of a dog owner's life. Dog = mud. And a few muddy prints on the top of your duvet won't kill you.

    Erm I just put a blanket on the bed, my garden is currently like a swamp with all the rain and life is too short to keep washing their feet *lazy cowbag* so I just wash the blanket every few days :oops:

    Although if really bad then I just run a few inches of water in the bath, dunk, swoosh and dry.

    If Cad's feet are muddy and/or squelchy (especially after walks in certain areas given alabama rot risks and knowledge so far) I just pop him in the shower and use the detachable head to rinse his feet. But day to day I don't even think about it! Like @O2.0 I walk around in bare feet myself a lot anyway.

    Why are you so concerned? If it's so stressful for you perhaps look into setting him up his own bed area in your room instead?
