Rub small amounts of or cold-pressed, food-grade onto footpads, using just enough to absorb into the skin. Massage just as you would the heel of your own foot, working the substance into cracks and dry spots. Distract your dog with a chew toy, or he may be tempted to lick away the moisturizer, negating its effectiveness.

Aside from a good diet with essential fatty acids, bathing, moisturizing and protecting your dog's skin will keep it healthy and supple year round. With the amount of bathing that a hairless dog requires, it is important to use a moisturizer on the dog's skin to keep it smooth and supple. Oatmeal-based moisturizers and moisturizers from the Cetafil line of products are hypoallergenic and can be used without irritating the skin or causing allergic reactions. Aloe vera products are a good natural option, but must be watched for indications of allergies.

Jason HomanWinter weather can be a refreshing change of pace, but at the same time, low humidity and home heating can dry out your dog’s skin and coat. While we humans might opt for topical moisturizing creams and lotions, our fine canine friends do best when they’re well oiled. The healthiest fix for your dog’s winter dandruff and dry skin problems is to add oil to his diet. You don’t have to run out and purchase special oils; two of the best, olive and coconut, are easy to find in supermarkets and health food stores. I recommend them for glowing skin and coat and general health.Cut a roll of paper towels in half and put in a plastic container (that has a lid). We use a large plastic empty coffee container. Mix 4 cups boiling water, 4 TBSP coconut oil, and 2 TBSP of the medicated body wash prescribed by your dog's vet and pour the mixture over the paper towels after the coconut oil has dissolved in the water. Once the paper towels are soaked, you can pull the cardboard roll middle right out. The wipes then pull out of the middle just like baby wipes would. The blackheads just roll right off as you wipe him/her down! They also keep the skin clean and soft. It is something that you have to do really consistently but works! Also use these when you bathe him. Youdon't even have to use lotion after the bath since the coconut oil gives enough moisturizer.
