Olive oil is great and the dog will smell like a Greek salad afterward.
I used it to remove sap from a malamutes fur many years ago.

I'm so glad this older thread had been resurrected recently. I'd happened to be reading it and this morning when we were out for our walk Rufus stepped - all four paws - in farly fresh asphalt. I was able to pull the chunky bits out there and carry him back to the house. As soon as I got in I pulled out the olive oil and got the rest off. Then I washed his feet as well. It seems to have worked. Thanks for the great tip!

I would have suggested mineral oil, and any residue he licks off us totally harmless.
