The snow is melting, the ground is wet and mud covers every inch of the outdoors. Yep, spring is almost here, and you know what that means… muddy paw prints all over your house. You can stop your dirty dog in her tracks with PawPlunger, a portable, easy-to-use paw wash device.

From the outside, the PawPlunger looks like an oversized coffee mug. It may not hold java, but it does hold the secret to clean paws! We know that wiping your dog’s paws before she tracks mud in can be a pain, but the PawPlunger paw wash claims to take care of that problem. And thanks to its portability, the PawPlunger can travel wherever you and your dog may roam. That means you can bring it with you to the dog park, so your dog doesn’t leave a mess behind in the back seat.

How it Works

Fill up the PawPlunger to the top of the first row of bristles. Take your dog’s paw and gently place it in the PawPlunger. The dirt and mud comes off when you move it up and down – just like a plunger works. Because it’s so gentle, you can plunge that dirty paw for as long as you need to. Repeat with each paw and dry them off with a clean towel. And the dirty water gets dumped right down the drain.

Feel free to use it all year round. If you’re worried about salt in the winter, the PawPlunger gets rid of it in a jiffy. And it’s even great for snow balls that form on your dog’s paws. Just fill this paw wash up with hot water and the snow balls just melt away. When it gets dirty enough, just throw the PawPlunger in the dishwasher and forget about it.

The PawPlunger paw wash comes in a range of sizes and colors, and it comes with a spill-proof lid. They range in price from $22.99 to $34.99, and can be found at participating pet stores and online at PawPlunger’s website.
