A Visit to the Doggy Salon

So it seems as though a lot of pet parents are really into dying their dog's fur as of lately. What do you think? Would you dye your dog's fur? I've met some people who have dyed their dog before. My mom has a thing for wanting to draw on our pets with washable markers... Anyways, check out these dogs of high fashion!

  2. I'm not opposed to it as long as they are using very safe colors/dyes and doing a small test patch first to make sure their pet isn't going to have a reaction. Also, regardless how safe, I don't think they should use any dye or color near the face. Too much risk of getting it in the eyes.
    We wouldn't personally do it unless it was for a good cause, like to raise awareness for an adoption/rescue/advocacy event or something.

    1. I'd have to agree with you on all of those things Pam.

  3. As long as the dog is fine with it and the people use dog safe dyes I see nothing wrong with it. After all it is just a grooming, hair grows back and colors wash out.

    Years ago we dyed one of our Springers green for Saint Patrick's day. People got a kick out of it and the dog was no worse for wear, in fact he rather enjoyed the attention.

    1. Aw that's cute! I'm sure the dogs don't mind all of the attention!

  4. Don't give my momma any ideas! Actually she always thought it would be fun to dye me for Halloween or St. Patrick's day or just for the heck of it, but she is reluctant to do it because she's heard it takes a while for the dye to wash out. (I'm kind of glad she hasn't tried it - I think I look far better in mud!)

    1. One of my co-workers used to dye her dog for Halloween. One year he was green because he was a flower. The next year blue because he was the genie from Aladdin. The dye does take forever to come out. That dog was green and blue for months! lol

  5. Personally my own hair has been every color of the rainbow... pink, purple, green, yellow, orange, red, and so on... but I would never dye my dog's hair. I find his natural coat colour to be beautiful, and I don't see why I have to change it. Everyone can do what they want what's important that the dye isn't toxic to dogs.
