    Lots of dogs don’t like their feet being touched,I found the best way is to sit on floor/chair and get him to lie beside you and spend a week or longer just working on being able to touch his feet gently touch his paw once or twice then treat with a titbit, gradually building it up, until he is comfortable with them being touched.

    You could also play the fun trick ‘shake hands ‘https://www.thespruce.com/train-dog-to-shake-paws-1117295

    If he is free in the car then a small crate might give him more security .
