ok, so some of you have seen the 'Snowball' thread with my pup covered in snowballs!

Now after all that fun, how can I prevent it? lol
Is there something I can spray or rub on her to prevent the snow sticking?

I don't think there is anything that can really be done to stop the snowballs getting stuck to your pooch. I think it is where you live. With the climate out west, you rarley see snow stick like that. It is usally powder or hard and crunchy.

Boots and a snowsuit. You should see my mini long haired doxie if he is not covered from head to bum. We have ear snugglers to keep his ears snowball free, but his tail is still a challenge

'Tis the season, bah humbug

We got this stuff called paw pro for one of our girls but we have not had enough snow to try it yet.

Here is a description

Paw Pro
* All-natural "de-icer" for dogs keeps pads comfortable in freezing conditions
* Spray on legs and underbelly to prevent snow from balling

Non-toxic spray repels water, ice, and snow AND protects against salt burns. Prevents water from freezing between pads, and snow from clumping on fur. Spray on pads before going outside. Safe even if licked.

Paw Pro contains all-natural ingredients: Purcellin (preening) oil, hybrid sunflower oil, and lanolin

Sounds like you could just put some vegetable oil in a spray bottle and save your money! but wouldn't it just end up being greasy? would you want you pet on your furniture after spraying it with oil?

I grew up with a mini schnauzer and she always got the snowballs. not much we could do, just rinsed them off with water when we came indoors! i bet the boots and coat idea would work though. good luck!
