Anyone else have this problem??

My girls feet smell like a gym... Just the pads, not the rest of the foot... I wipe them off, but they still stink! I've had other dogs paws not smell the best... Hers is just way worse, maybe because she is the most active.

I love that salty smell! ;-)

Of course... Does your pup chew her feet? If it is a real foul smell could be a yeast infection between the toes. Is the skin really red? I used to have an Aussie that as a puppy got several yeast infections there. Apple Cider Vinegar would help that.

Jedda will get a funky yeasty smell on her paws when she's been in the pool at doggy camp, and I use this:

Yeah, I had a toy poodle with that problem... It was a struggle his whole life.... Thankfully hers is just her pads, no itching or redness
