Default People with white paws.... err dogs with white paws I mean

Bamm has 4 white paws... and I love them and hate them at the same time...

I love bright white paws on him... absolutely love...

I don't like that they now have a muddish/yellowish/pinkish tint to them from us going outside so much. I give him baths but that color STILL doesn't come out. I'm currently using Earth bath.

So... any tips on how to get the staining out of his white paws and bring back the bright white shine?

Dawn dish soap JUST on the paws, mixed 50-50 with vinegar. Let it sit a while, do a vinegar and water rinse, and then use shampoo as usual. It helped Emma. A trim also helps - if you get the longer hairs, which are stained the most, gone, he'll look much cleaner.

What causes that staining? Both Pit and Zero have white paws (well.. zero has white everything). Pit's paws are always white, but a couple of Zero's paws have the same staining you mention, yet they both do the exact same things as far as running in the mud.

When we lived on the mountain I had a bucket of water that had baking soda in it. It was great for removing that famous " Virginia clay". Dip their paws in the bucket and it gone .. If really bad I would shake baking soda on the paws then rinse in that bucket.

We use this stuff. It's a life saver for apartment living. It also is great for spot cleaning when Strider pees on his front leg.

bio groom waterless bath

You just give one or two sprays and work it in. Ta da! Bright whites!

Uncle Fred and Mini wash their own. Maybe it's a hound thing. Uncle Fred detests having dirty feet, he is obsessed with keeping them clean and white. He washes our feet too, for that matter.

Maybe the degree of staining depends on the kind of hair. Straight, glossy hair may stain less than soft or curly hair.

Brawt absolutely hates having dirty feet. Even after getting a bath he has to groom them again because in his opinion I didn't get them clean I got them dirty. He also loves giving our feet a nice cleanin' too.

He will also hold Kai and Nomi down and groom them if he thinks they need.

...so it must be a hound thing.

Cider's have a pinkish tint on her buff coat when she's been obsessively licking them. We don't have a yellow problem, but parti cocker people do. Usually it's a urine on coat issue. I know a dirty boy cream afghan who pees on his feet, or manages to stand in the puddle he's creating Niiice.

I use Pure Paws waterless shampoo on Ada's feet... works like a charm!

She may look psycho, but at least her paws are snowy white!
