    Default Opinions on dyeing dog fur

    For my grooming business that i'm slowly building up, i'm offering fur dyeing for dogs. I don't know how popular it will be, more likely to be a seasonal thing (christmas, new years eve, etc) or for fund raisers and things. But i'm offering it nonetheless, seeing as i do know how to do it, and the products used are totally safe.
    I know a lot of people don't like it, hence why i'm curious of what you guys think of it, and your reasons for your feelings. I don't mind it, I wouldn't dye Koda, mostly because it wouldn't look good on his fur... and Dodge has no white on her so it wouldn't work either. However if i owned a small fluffy white dog, It wouldn't surprise me if it ended up sporting a coloured tail or ears, i think its cute. The process is very quick and the dog can even run around once the dye is on and setting.

    Well when I was younger at uni in the eighties I used to put bright coloured stripes in my hair. I doubt I would ever own a white fluffy so I dont think the question will ever come up and I think I am probably old enough now to be over that sort of thing LOL. I dont think I care either way. I dont think its cruel or does any harm I would just find the notion mildly ridiculous.

    I don't think it's any more cruel that washing the dog. So it does depend a lot on how much the dog likes being washed...

    not for me but I can't see any reason to stop other people going there if they want to. It's marginally better than dressing the dog up like a barbie doll.

    Mind you, I know what my dog would do to any outfit she hated if I put her in it.

    Shred it.

    I can't imagine dye would look good on her.

    I misclicked, I meant the second one. I don't like it but it's not so bad.

    Rexy the red nosed pitty had a blue, pink and shiny coat , and if you ever saw him you would even say he glowed....
    All of the other doggies used to laugh and call him names .... they never let poor Rexy join in any doggy games.



    LOL its cruel to dye them .... the other dogs will bully them ... then poor pooch will get a eating disorder and start cutting themselves... before leaving a final goodbye on their pawbook account and committing dogycide.
