So what does "self-rinsing" mean?
It's another word for a dry shampoo - which is a misnomer too. Basically a product you spray on the dirty part, and use a towel or cloth or paper towel to rub/dry it out afterwards. Like a spot bath without the water.
There are many brands of this type of product available.
I use it mostly on my short coated dogs for a quick clean, but do use it for the occasional poopy butt on the sheepdogs. It works good - dry paper towel for the bulk of it, then spray the spot, then use a new paper towel to finish the job. Oddly, I never use this product on their dirty mouths though! I guess I think it would taste bad...I use water and shampoo instead.
Is there anyway to keep her beard clean? Between food and digging in the mud, her face is a mess 24/7. How can I keep her beard white and clean? Do I have to teach her to drink through a straw?
Chewie was messy faced all the time when he was a pup and a young dog, but at some point he outgrew it. Makes me realize that most of the time his face/beard is dry and clean now. He just turned 6, and I don't remember when it happened!
I wash my guy's faces pretty much every day. And they don't stay outside - out to potty and back in.
Even Chewie - I wash it because we go to therapy dog visits, and if he is in a kissy mood, I want it to be with a clean face!
now puppy Bond is 6 months and in the messy stage - I like the straw idea!
|I am battling 'piggy face' too! He just began to eat his dry food 'dry' without any water to soften it --so I am hoping that will help!|
The only time he is outside--he is with me and I try to keep the nose 'up' and discourage the digging and rooting-
I do use a no rinse shampoo almost daily on his chin and neck area.
I do a regular face was with shampoo and water about every third day...
...and he still has a little 'piggy face'!
|Eevee stays very clean most of the time, but if she's extra dirty for some reason I clean her off with a baby wipe.|
|Gracie eats and drinks like a, well, nothing eats and drinks like Gracie. She does not quite live up to her name in that regard.|
|Ah, I have two piggy faces. In our house, they get a tablespoon of yogurt as "dessert" after dinner and then they ahve "yogurt face"! Yuk! I try to wipe their mouths but it just sort of gets caked in...|
Someone told me once to comb the beard out using corn starch? Works on matts and smelly face.
