Whether you have a thing for mandals (no judgment!) or spent a lot of time barefoot on the beach, your dogs are probably a little worse for wear. The litany of unsightly issues you may be experiencing currently includes: blisters, cracked heels, calluses, peeling, and the list goes on. As summer progresses, you should seriously consider taking care of the nastiness now. So if you’re not down for a dude-pedicure (but really, give it a try some time), here are some solutions for handling your flip-flop feet issues in the privacy of your home.

You may be tough but your feet shouldn’t be. Soften them up and tackle other side effects of summer like flaky and cracked heels with this olive- and safflower oil-packed balm.
Sol de Janeiro Foot Smoothing Board
It makes sense that the same sunny beaches that birthed Havianas would also inspire the means to make feet ready for maximum exposure. And make it appropriately summery via surfboard shaped smoother that will make your heels and toes less rough looking.
Ahava Dermud Intensive Foot Cream
If your feet were capable of sending SOS, they would. Rescue them from their dire state with this hardcore, healing treatment made of therapeutic Dead Sea mud.

Afterwards, what once was gross will look and smell awesome.
Captain Blankenship Avocado & Peppermint Hand, Cuticle and Foot Balm
Heal cracked heals and make everything softer and less scary looking with this organic balm packed with skin-softening calendula extract, cocoa butter and avocado oil. Bonus points for peppermint oil that revitalizes your weary dogs.
