Tuf foot works good. But usually once they heal from the first time they slip you shouldn’t have any other problems if they are hunted regularly unless there is an underlying issue

Unless there is an underlying issue like was mentioned above, just keep running them until they callous over, there isn’t a product that’s a cure all, some may help out with the problem, think about a person going to work for the very first time, they’re never going to get tough hands by wearing gloves all the time or staying home every time they have a blister, the best thing I found is to run it back on them, I thought my papa was pulling my leg the very first time I asked him that question, I’ve had folks tell me that could really break a young dogs spirit, I don’t mean to sound like a hard ass or smart ass but if that breaks their spirit then there wasn’t much there to be broken to begin with, if a dog keeps on going after they have made ground meat out of their feet you can really check to see exactly how much they love doing their job, some just have a genetic predisposition to have softer feet, one of the foundation males that I’ve bred around was always raw footed no matter what was put on him or how much he was hunted, I’ve had to keep a
Close eye and get rid of a few nice dogs because they had white pads that stayed soft and raw...

I know dogs with pink pads and liver colored pads are easier to break down and bleed in certain terrains or when out of shape...even dogs with good feet can swell up when out of shape and in certain environments...

I use cut heal for many things and I would use it on the dog pads if needed...way back in the day terpentine or pine tar was used for many things...hoof heal lists linseed oil first and terpentine second...

Cut Heal “Hoof Heal” probably will be even better than cut heal...

My grandfather used terpentine on us for any cut we got on the farm...he would reach up and grab combwebs from the barn ceiling and wrap the cut with the combwebs and then pour terpentine on the cut...said it would keep infections out and it would prevent lock jaw...I miss those days

Snake bite and sore feet I prefer to keep hunting the dogs and they get over it quicker...

Training dogs is not about quantity, it's more about timing, the right situations, and proper guidance...After that it's up to the dog...

 First race and the pad slips, there is a big issue.           Putting this or that on pads for this reason isn't going to do you much good.    Putting stuff on pads because they get so hard, dry and cracked  is a different issue than slipping a pad on first race.             Several things can contribute to a dog slipping a pad so fast but there is one particular  main cause  as to why this dog slipped it so fast.           PM me if your really interested and I'll ask you several questions that will help point to the reasons.   Most likely your gonna have 2 issues working together to cause such a fast slip.

All those things work but some dogs just have soft feet. If he is on a wood floor or concrete I would move him to dirt maybe hand walk him few miles every night to toughen up them feet in the infantry we called it pussy foot.
