What is it?

The Dexas MudBuster Portable Dog Paw Cleaner uses water and silicone brushes to clean your dog's muddy paws. Simply add water to the Mudbuster, insert your dog's paw, gently twist and dab the paw against the silicone brushes, remove and dry before tackling the next muddy paw.

The MudBuster can be disassembled after use and the silicone insert can be removed and flattened for easy cleaning. The MudBuster is available in three different sizes to suit your dog's paws and six colours, including pink, green and blue.

However, despite thousands of five-star ratings, some users note its design could be tweaked.

Reviewers note that although It's a "great idea" and "well made," it could "use a lid for travel," since it's hard to take it on the road because the water will "spill."

"[The} water spills out everywhere," says another user. Although the "quality of the product is great" they note that it's it's not "functional" for travel.


A tired dog is a happy dog—but in the spring, that also usually means they're a muddy dog. The Dexas MudBuster is an affordable way to keep the mess exactly where it belongs (outside) without too much hassle on behalf of you or your four-legged friend. However, some shoppers note that the paw cleaner can be difficult to travel with, which is something to keep in mind before heading to checkout.
