Steph and Danni..and all the k9 groomers! in here!

What exactly is 'blueing'? Someone recommended it to me..they said it'd give Giz a more sparkling white look. Is that true, and should I do it? Will I look stupid asking the groomer this?

I think they are referring to using a blue or purple shampoo. I use blue and purple washes for Napoleon and he always comes up as white as a cloud!

Ive never heard of the term 'blueing', so just ask your groomer to use a blue shampoo.

Yes that is what it refers to. A blueing shampoo is a brightener/whitener basically.

Blueing originated with whitening clothing. I know I asked about this a few years ago and my mom said that that is what they used to use instead of bleach to whiten clothes.

Just be careful to buy a good brand and to not leave it in too long.... Otherwise you may have a purple tinted dog (speaking from experience...).

I use a blue based whitening shampoo on him, but he never comes out that bright white..maybe I need a better brand.

Don't use a blueing shampoo myself cause a few of mine have skin issues which I use Neem Oil Shampoo to keep in control. Since I adopted my parti-colored spaniels and they all managed to come with white feet, rescue turned me on to adding a little peroxide to the shampoo and it works great. Two of them had poop stains sooo bad halfway up their legs and this mixture got their leg hair all white again in just a couple applications.

Hey guys, my biggest problem with the Princess is her eyes. I wash her face with warm water every night, but she still gets the stains under her eyes. I don't like the idea of using shampoo that close to her eyes. Some one at Pet Smart suggested toothpaste, anyone heard of that? Susan
