Simply put, they are exactly that, a Paw Cleaner that is portable. Taking these paw cleaners anywhere helps keep your personal belongings such as cars and homes clean. Dogs getting dirty on walks is common but being able to clean your doggie’s paws before they return home is difficult. With a portable paw cleaner, you don’t need much space or time, just water.
Clean your doggie’s paws and you’re safe to put them back in your car for the journey home. Also, once you have used the paw cleaner, you can simply empty the dirty water and no worries of water getting everywhere too.
Things to Look for When Buying a Portable Paw Cleaner
Durability and Comfortable: The bristles in some brushes can be extremely uncomfortable for your doggie. If the portable paw cleaner does not have soft bristles, don’t get it. They must be soft and comfortable to ensure that your doggie is able to get fresh clean paws without any hassle and discomfort. The cleaner should also feel like a massage, not a scrub so make sure they are more silicone or rubber made.
Design: Not only should your paw cleaner keep your dog’s paws clean but it should also keep the dirt inside until you clean it. Being made from silicone and rubber is also a must for additional comfort. Training your doggie to use the cleaner initially that might cause more problems for you and less for them. However, like anything with dogs, a little training will certainly help your doggies start to like the paw cleaner. Cleaners with a handle are always much easier to use than without especially when your doggie has not used a paw cleaner before.
Let’s take a look at them now.
