Doggone Clean Paws bills itself as a “complete dirty doggie paw cleaning system” which consists of 2 washing trays and 2 towels, along with a water bottle, backpack, and instruction book. They promise if you use this “system” your dog will never track dirt into your house again.
But is Doggone Clean Paws something you really need to keep Fido’s feet free of dirt and mud? Come here, sit, and listen.
The Doggone Clean Paws Pitch
Doggone Clean Paws is targeting dog owners who are trying to keep their house (and pet) clean. The marketing company behind Doggone Clean Paws, which is not disclosed, gave it a cutesy name and call the whole thing a “system” so it sounds like you are getting something substantial for your money; they throw in a water bottle and backpack they tout as a $30 value for free.
How Doggone Clean Paws Works
The Doggone Clean Paws “system” is basically 2 orange waffle-bottom trays and 2 towels. To use Doggone Clean Paws, take with you when you go to the park. They suggest you first use the 2 trays for your dog’s food and water. Then, when it’s time to go home, they tell you to empty the food, fill with water and use the trays as gentle scrubbing devices by putting in your dog’s paw and rubbing it across the raised waffle-bottom; they state this will take less than 60 seconds. Then, dry with provided towel. They add you can leave them by the front or back porch for use at home.
Doggone Clean Paws Costs:
$38.90 (broken down as $29.95 plus $8.95 S&H). There is a 30-day money back guarantee, minus shipping and what it costs in postage to return. They also state they will charge a 15% restocking fee, which translates to $4.49 per order. Total possible loss even with money back guarantee: $13.44.
Doggone Clean Paws Comes With:
- 2 Waffle Trays
- 2 “Special” Microfiber Cloths
- 1 Water Resistant Backpack (listed as “free”)
- 1 Water Bottle with Cap (also listed as “free”)
- 1 Instruction Book
Bottom Line: Is Doggone Clean a Scam?
This product will probably work as advertised, meaning it will wash your dog’s feet – provided that you can control your dog enough to push its paw in a bowl of water and rub against a raised plastic surface. But as far as we can tell, the only part of this product that is “special” are the waffle trays – you can get the cloth, backpack, or sports bottle from anywhere (and do you really need instructions how to use it?) So it comes down to a question of value for your money: do you really need to pay almost $40 for a tray to perform what is essentially can be done with a towel across a dog’s paw?
