Do you stick them to the stairs or just use their natural stickiness? They really lay where they're told, which is great. I doubt you'd need to adhere them with anything.

From abandoned puppy to Tripawd Warrior Dude, Dakota became one of the 2011 February Furballs due to STS. Our incredibly sweet friend lived with grace and dignity till he impulsively raced over the Bridge on 12-15-12.

Poor Rumbles cry  Finchy sends a hug to him.  I don't have any advice to add, it all sounds really good.

Thanks for all of the advice! I'll look into all of the options and figure out what to try first.

Okay. A few busy weeks later and I finally got the Musher's Secret. I applied it to Rumbles front foot today...and I'm pretty sure it make him slide even more. It's very greasy...I don't quite understand how it's supposed to work. Any suggestions? Help!

i use it on sam's feet, since he's out in the wet and muck so much, and he gets 'chapped' feet.  don't put on very much - a little goes a long way.  you just want to kinda seal the pad, not grease it up....  hope this helps.

Yes, a little goes along way! I used it on Maggie because for some reason her pads were very dry and cracked. For us it was a week or two before her pads really got more supple and helped her traction .
You also have to rub it in really well.
