How To Create The Perfect Paw Print

Taking a paw print from your cat or dog (or any other four-legged friend!) is easy if you follow our steps…

  • We recommend you use an Inkfree Printing Kit for the best (and cleanest!) results. Click here to find out more. If you choose to use ink, please make sure it is non-toxic and safe for your pet
  • Get everything you need ready and close to hand
  • Choose a time of day when your pet is happy and relaxed
  • Have some treats close by and start by stroking them and massaging their paws
  • Lay your paper on a hard surface like a book or wooden floor
  • Gently clean your pet’s paw with a damp cloth. Remove any dirt and pat it dry
  • Very carefully trim any long hairs that cover the pads of their paws
  • Gently pick up your pet’s paw and press it onto the ink pad or wipe it with the cloth supplied with your Inkfree Kit
  • Make sure the paw is completely covered
  • With your dog standing up, hold their paw over the paper and gently press it down.
  • Roll the paw from side to side to get the whole paw print
  • Lift the paw straight up off the paper, being careful not to smudge the ink
  • Wipe your pet’s paw clean with a damp cloth
  • Give your pet a treat!
