I haven't tried it, but I bet you could teach them to scratch at a mat and it would wipe their front paws. Maybe start with a box with kibble or a toy sealed inside, and when they offer a scratching behavior at it, mark and treat? Then move the command to a mat...I think I'll have to try this myself!
