Dogs can get extremely dirty trotting along the city streets. So, how does Broadway actress Megan Hilty keep her Jack Russell terriers looking camera-ready while pounding the pavement in the Big Apple? The 9 to 5: The Musical star tells PEOPLE Pets all it takes is a couple of great products and some TLC.

For pups Gracie and Harley’s little paw pads, Hilty uses Woof Cosmetics’ Paw and Fur Balm with shea butter ($9.95). “It helps prevent drying and cracking,” says Hilty. As for keeping them fresh, the actress uses Kiehl’s Spray-N-Play Cleansing Spritz ($12), which requires no water and is easily wiped off her pets’ coats. “They don’t get too stinky that way!” says Hilty.
