It’s Fidose Friday Find time! Spring is here and summer is around the corner, and that means dirty, muddy paw season is here, too! I allow my dog on the furniture and throughout the house, so we generally have standard towels or rags waiting at the door for our return. The towels and rags don’t always work and I am not interested in paw cleaner products (involved and cumbersome).
The folks at Paw Sponge approached me to ask if I wanted to try a sample on my dog and let Fidose of Reality readers know the results. I warned them that we are a reality-based blog and will share the good, bad, and indifferent about using the product with our followers.
Here’s what happened when our dog had dirty paws, got a bath, and we tried the Paw Sponge:
The Paw Sponge is not intended for bathing the dog’s paws; it is designed as an effective way to easily and quickly wipe paws clean before entering a car, house, jumping on furniture, etc.
For those unaware, Cocker Spaniels have bulky paws and a thick coat. In his fuller coat, our dog’s hair is quite heavy and takes some time to blow dry. After using the Paw Sponge on our dog’s paws after a bath, the water was 90 percent absorbed and it saved me time from blow drying.
Here are a few key points if you are considering the Paw Sponge for your dog(s):
- The sponge comes in TWO convenient sizes: REGULAR and LARGE. The regular size works for most small and smaller medium size dogs. The large size works for bigger medium and most larger dogs.
The sponge can be easily cleaned just like any other sponge. Just soak it in clean soapy water and squeeze the dirt out until thoroughly cleaned.
- The sponge is made of a tough, soft and durable urethane foam. With normal use, the sponge will last for well over a hundred uses or more. If your dog has longer nails it will likely shorten the lifetime of the sponge.
This is the type of product I’d keep in my car glove box and at the entrance/exit of my home. It pays for itself the first time muddy or wet paws are averted.

Note: I was not compensated for this review but we were given the Paw Sponges at no cost to try for our dog.
