"The MudBuster works great!," one shopper said of the gadget and their 70 pound boxer. "It takes the mud completely off his paws."

Some customers have noted that it's important to follow the size guides to ensure the your dog is the perfect size for the MudBuster you order.

"It works great to clean our dogs paws after a walk in the forest," a shopper said. They did note that the gadget was a bit bulky, and hard to grip in their hands. "I'm really glad I ordered it and have used it every day this winter."

Despite the positive reviews, some pet owners say they have to change the water frequently throughout the day to ensure they're cleaning their pups paws with clean water. Others have complained that there isn't a lid for the MudBuster, which can cause messes if their pup gets too excited and knocks it over. 

Other people noted that even though the concept is ingenious, their dogs were just too timid to use it. 

Verdict

A tired dog is a happy dog - but in the fall, that usually means they're also a muddy dog. The MudBuster is an affordable way to are for your pups paws instead of using multiple rags, or having to constantly clean your floors or car interior.

However, if you think your dog might be too afraid to use the MudBuster, or you're worried about frequently changing the water, this might not be for you.
