Our yard is a mud pit. We can't fix it; it's made of clay and ... anyway, the dog always comes back in with four black paws. (His fur is actually white.) We have been sink-bathing his feet multiple times a day, every day, for months - until now! It took a couple of days for him to get used to doing this instead, but it is so fast and easy! Our dog is a 26-pound beagle/poodle/mutt and the medium is the exact right size. We dump the water once a day and it works like a charm. The towel-off part is also very important - but we are thrilled to do a 20-second foot wash instead of a five-minute sink bath, especially six times a day! Thanks, Chewy, for your excellent customer service, too.
This thing is awesome. Gets the job done and gently brushes the paw pads while you're "plunging". But, *very important to note* as other reviewers have mentioned: This thing is HUGE! My pup is 65 lbs., so initially I was going to order a Large based off dimensions provided. Read reviews, decided to go down a size and ordered a Medium instead just cause of our pup's size. It is still so massive, LOL! Easily could have ordered a Small. For scale: When I get a paw in the cup it goes right to the middle between his Carpal Pad and elbow, which is fine but I think the world of dog owners could do well with just a Small (and if ever a size below that, try that too, haha). Love this thing nonetheless! Huge help (and in my case, a cost savings when compared to regular replenishing of grooming wipes just for his dirty paws alone). Highly recommend!
Love my new paw plunger.......it works great. Bella does real well with it.
Works great for our 50-65 lb dogs. Love using to clean their paws very quickly!
I think this paw plunger is a great idea, but for large dogs whose legs are long. We have a Shih Tzu who has wide paws and short legs. I bought the medium because the small would not been wide enough for his paws, but the height or depth was more work than it's worth. Trying to hold his paw in the plunger was a task in itself and trying to move the plunger up and down was difficult. Quicker to just rinse his paws off in the sink or use a doggie wipe.
Works great, I read other reviews and opted for the medium over the large for my 90lbs German shepherd and fits his paws great!
I live in southern Minnesota and really needed something other than shop rags to wipe off my Molly's paws. Rain and snow are not a good thing when your pup comes in and has found the biggest mud puddle in the yard.... I thought it would take a while for my Molly to get used to having her paws cleaned with the paw plunger but it was a breeze...and no more muddy paw prints in the kitchen... It's great! I'm sure that I'll use this all year long...
This is a handy and helpful gadget! Though my dog is not thrilled with the process, it is very doable and much better than the wiping with paper towels that we have done in the past. Chewy.com also kindly helped me correct a mistake I made in ordering.
I think I should have gotten the small one. This one is a little big for my cocker, but it still works wonderfully (as long as the mud isn't up to her belly, which it has been recently). I believe this would work even better for short-haired dogs.
I'll admit I only added this item to qualify for free shipping. My husband loves it! Uses it with a very stubborn cattle dog's muddy paws. Cleans them better than wipes. Glad I added it to my order.
