It’s been raining a lot lately. Not that I’m complaining. I love rain. Love listening to it. Love thunderstorms that come with rain. Love how it helps my garden.
Is there anything I don’t like about rain? Yes. The mess made from 4 dogs coming in from the wet outdoors.
Sixteen paws bring in a lot of mud. A lot of mud ends up on the floors, the furniture, the people.
How do you deal with the muddy paws?
You could go with the old standby- a towel, to take care of paw cleaning.
Or you might want to try one of these paw cleaning devices.

Spotless Paw® Dog Paw Cleaning Glove
A microfiber glove, the Spotless Paw® Dog Paw Cleaning Glove makes it easy to get around and between your dog’s toes. The loop makes it easy to hang by your back door. And why 6 fingers? So you can flip it around to use on either your right or left hand.
Dog Gone Smart Dirty Dog Doormat
The Dog Gone Smart Dirty Dog Doormat help catch the mud at the door with millions of microfiber strands that trap water, dirt, and mud as your dog moves over the mat.
The Wild Heart Brushless Paw Wash makes muddy paw clean-up easy! It’s special design makes a vortex that helps remove the dirt, while the squeegee top works to keep the excess water inside as you move from paw to paw. The small and large sizes mean it accommodates so many dogs!
The PawSponge is just what the name says it is, a sponge for your dog’s paws. Easy to use, it’s also inexpensive enough to have several around the house waiting for muddy paws. Read my review for more information and to find out what I thought of it.
Why bathe the whole dog to take care of muddy feet when you can use the Paw Plunger to just bathe your dog’s feet. Bristles inside help remove the dirt and mud leaving feet you let walk through your home without leaving a trail behind.

When the mud is so bad that you are ready to cement in your whole backyard, the Ultra Paws Durable Dog Boots might be the thing to pull out. Put them on. Send your dog out into the muddy depths of your yard. Remove boots. Throw in wash. The mud doesn’t even touch your dog’s paws.
Bring on the rain and the mud.
With one of these products, you’ll be ready.
MOUSES! You had me worried there for a moment with those gloves for cleaning paws. Don’t get me wrong. I think they’re a GREAT idea! But I misread it at first and thought they were finally making what the peeps have been threatening us with for years… Little boots for us to wear so that we cats can mop the floors. Guess I’m feeling a tad guilty about that muddy mess I brought inside the other day. Interesting… Bet the peep could have used a pair of those gloves, for sure.

The paw plunger looks really interesting! I bet it would work quite well.
Also, I love the idea of the paw cleaning glove. I usually use a small towel, but the puppy likes to attack the towel! A glove would make things easier. 🙂

LOTS of great solutions for those muddy paws! And with all the rain we’re getting this summer, they’re really going to come in handy! Thanks for sharing!

wow!! I really like the paw glove, I don’t think my little ones would like to put their tiny paws in things, but the paw glove would work perfectly… though right now there is no water in CA, hence no mud… but hopefully things will change this winter!

Oh! I really like that doggy doormat! I will have to look into that one for our two dogs! Thanks for sharing!
We are thinking about a dog again and this is one of the big reasons I have been hesitant. Good to know about these.
I adore those durable dog boots and I definitely need to purchase that dirty dog doormat. I live in New England and have two chihuahuas. Although they might be small, they certainly make a mess especially in the winter months! Thank you for sharing these great ideas 🙂
The glove is the cutest and very practical. Who knew there were so many options!

We always keep an absorbent mat by the door, but that is often not enough to catch all the debris that the boys track in. They both get long hair between their paw pads that tends to really hang on to mud!
I am going to check out that Pawsponge and Paw Plunger – they seem like just what we need!
I keep a towel on the backporch for when Odin comes in. He really doesnt care for wet paws and will hold it until the rain lets up. I love that paw sponge!
