Dyed Dogs

A pink poodle?!? A blue Bichon? A red Rat Terrier?!? Dying your pets’ fur is the latest trend in pet grooming? But is it safe? Like all other topical products, if it designed for pets’ skin and used as directed, its probably ok. There is a line of gel-type dyes made specifically for dogs, with the dye being certified safe by the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association. But does that mean its ok for YOUR dog? Maybe not…Every dog can react differently to topical products. The dye must also sit for 15 minutes and lasts 4-6 washes “if applied appropriately”. At my house, its enough of an ordeal to bathe 3 dogs with shampoo, much less have them sit still for 15 minutes to be dyed… My vote? Leave it to the professional groomers at Grooming Shows!

We would like you to meet Sasha. She is a 9 year old Spitz and she doesn’t look a day over 5. What is her secret? Sasha eats a high quality diet, gets plenty of exercise and pampers herself at the spa.

Aren’t I pretty? Thanks to Dr Davis and his staff at Kingsbrook Animal Hospital (who keep me healthy and happy) for recommending Bernie’s Grooming. Bernie gave me a shampoo, blow-dry, styling, manicure and pedicure. She also greeted me with a smile and a treat. Even my crate was spotless! Bernie I look forward to seeing you again.

Sasha visits Bernie Rogers for all of her grooming needs. Ms. Rogers is an experienced groomer and all of her four-legged clients love her. If your dog is a show dog or just wants to look like one, call Bernie at 301-748-9655 for pricing information or to schedule an appointment.
