Playtime at Paradise Pets includes outdoor play, weather permitting. Our outdoor surface is currently pea gravel. If your dog is not accustomed to that type of surface it may INITIALLY cause irritated paws until the pads toughen up. This will often result in licking and chewing, further aggravating the irritation, especially during the night.

We limit play time for new clients, gradually building up time, but some dogs may still develop irritated paws. If you notice your dog’s pads seem irritated, please prevent them from licking. Using a cone for a couple of days during the night usually works best because it is the licking and chewing that causes the pads to become much worse.

Also, please let us know if your dog has any irritation and we will limit the time they spend on pea gravel.

Irritated paws are NOT caused by chemical or hot floor surfaces at Paradise Pets. It is the result of running on a hard surface before paw pads toughen up and then licking the irritation.

If you have any question or concerns, please call us!

While boarding at Paradise Pet you dog will be in group play, where they will get dirty. We highly recommend a bath & brush on day of departure.
