I don't use Vaseline, but I'm sure a dab would be fine. I sometimes rub in shea butter on the pads...it smells yummy.

Beware...dogs (AND KIDS) love vaseline! You can put it on their pads, but they'll probably lick it all off. lol

Hmm, never thought of vaseline, but I have used Paw Wax, which seems to work well and isn'y greasy.

Vaseline comes off really quick, so it doesn't really provide much protection from road salt. A paw balm or wax with, well, wax in it is harder and doesn't wear off as quick.
