It's actually quite normal, and the main reason for the "Frito Feet" odor is the presence of natural bacteria on your dog's paws.
Dogs primarily sweat through their paw pads, and when they sweat, it activates these bacteria, producing the distinct corn chip scent. That's why the smell becomes more pronounced when your dog is active.

Use a mild, hypoallergenic shampoo for dogs. Shampoos like iPaw, which contain natural ingredients like oatmeal and aloe vera, can help soothe dry, itchy, and sensitive skin.

Trimming the hair between your dog's paw pads can also help keep their paws clean. Long hair can accumulate dirt, debris, and moisture, creating a perfect environment for bacteria and yeast to thrive.
