I used this last year on my 10 month old GSP prior to a week long pheasant hunting trip to South Dakota. I applied the Tuf-Foot directly to the pads of all feet twice daily two weeks before the hunt. During the hunt week I applied it every morning. The weather conditions varied from wet to dry throughout the week. The temperature was very mild, 25-55 degrees. He hunted all five days and his feet never seemed to bother him. I think this is a great product.

Used as a preventative
I use this for about 2 weeks prior to extended hunting trips. The pads are usually the first thing to wear out when hunting 5 days straight. This helped extend the pads. I applied it everyday while on the trip but not sure if that made much of a difference. The 2 weeks prior made a huge difference.
