Locally Made Anticeptic Specifically For Dog Pads!

Tuff N Up
Handhills Tuff N Up is a great product to help out dogs with cut, torn or worn down pads. This is a solution that you put on your dog’s pads to help your dog’s feet “tuff n up” and prepare for the snow or just for a long hike or a jog on pavement. I have more than one friend who took their dog for a bike ride and their dog ran until he had worn his pads so low they actually bled – a lot. Sled dog mushers, sheep herders and agility people all know the importance of keeping their dog’s feet healthy and are proactive about it but it is just as important for weekend warriors. This product is safe and doesn’t have any artificial dyes like similar products out there. If you herd you know Handhills out of Coeur d’Alene and they only sell products that they use on their own dogs.
