Bear GSD What about Bag Balm? It says it's a petroleum lanolin base , but does not contain alcohol. I've used it on Bear's pads and he will not lick it.

Homemade alternative to Musher's Secret

Or is it the best?

I know when I was breastfeeding we used a mixture of lanolin and beeswax to keep mom parts from cracking and bleeding and it is safe for licking. I would like to not put any petrochemicals on his paws.

Basically, we have started walking 4-5 miles every am on asphalt (before it gets hot) and I would like to keep his paws conditioned. No snow or salt here but he also runs a lot. He also has some callouses on his back legs below the hock but, fortunately none on his elbows. Most dogs I have had seem to get knotty on those back legs after time. Not sure why.

Suggestions? I am ordering a pound anyway.......
