Don't your feet ever get dry and cracked? I know mine do... I have been known to take an old pair of socks and slather my feet in bag balm and go to sleep that way after about three nights my feet are nice and soft for a long time.
Bag balm was created to stop cow teats from getting chapped from all the milking. If you don't have bag balm in your BOB you need to get some. I have like 5 cans of that stuff around the house. Not only does it help with dry skin or chapped dry cracked parts of the body it has antibacterial properties to it as well. I am telling you this is the only animal product that the FDA inspects for human use. Another good lotion to have on hand is Corn Huskers that was invented to help heal the hands of the people shuckin corn because they would get all the small cuts from the edge of the corn leaves.
You don't want your pup to have hard dry pads because they crack. In the winter I always recommended to my clients to get some boots for the dog because the salt on the roads and sidewalks reeks havoc on a dogs feet. Benning I know you was in the military the number one thing they teach you is take care of your feet.
