Hi I want to dye my teacup and standard poodle with the jazzaling dye. I use to know how to dye them. but haven't done it in a very long time. And need to know how to again if any one knows how to will you please let me know. or if you know of something that is semi permeant that wont coast me so much that would be grate.

Can I ask what is the Jazzing dye and why you are dying them? Just really curious.

Puppyluv

Why exactly are you wanting to dye your dog?? I'm not familliar with Jazaling dye, is it a animal-specific prodcut? Or is it a human hair dye? (I know Clairol makes a product called Jazzing dye).

its a human dye i know many people who use it. and clairol does make thie.

I don't agree with dying dog's hair. It's like dyeing a child's hair - unneccessary and inappropriate. But if you must dye your dog's hair, it's not advisable to use products made for human hair, like Manic Panic. Dogs' skin has a different pH than humans.

i have always wanted to ask why would someone want to dye their animal? i have worked as a dog groomer for many years and have yet to encounter someone who wants their dog dyed. but i have painted many a dogs "toe nails" and i always found that a bit strange too. im just asking out of curiousity

If you're going to do it, you should know at least to use non-toxic food colouring instead of human-grade hair colouring. It won't last as long, but at least your dog won't poison him/herself.

Is this the same dog that yelps for ear cleaner? Chances are his skin is very sensitive and can't handle dye. Plus he's black- what are you trying to accomplish in dying a black dog?

Why put the pups through something like that when you don't have to? ( color my hair to cover gray and if I didn't have those pseky grays starting I wouldn't bother. It's not fun.)

It's bad enough when we have to clean their ears or bathe them when they hate it. Some things you just HAVE TO do for their own good but dyeing their fur isn't one of them.

Leave them be. I'm sure they're gorgeous as is !

ROTFLOL! :eek: Simply amazing!

I don't think anyone is gonna offer any help in dying dogs! At least not on this forum!

Please don't use human hair dye if you must change your dog's color. It's not meant for dog's skin. If you must dye your dog, see if vegetable based food coloring will work--you can mix it to get some wonderful shades of red, purple, green, yellow, blue, orange, all the ATTRACTIVE colors.:yuck: And an added benefit is that when you're done, they'll match your hands!!!

When I used to farm, I would mark sale lambs with different colors (food coloring) to identify where they were going to end up.

have you never dyed your hair?? are you NOT aware it irritates the scalp and it burns???? do you not know that a dog's skin is 10 times more sensitive which means that it'll burn him even more?????


i'm baffled...i really don't see why you'd want your poor dog to go through this? Does he no longer match ?

LM1313

Definitely don't use human hair dye. If you go to a groomer, they will likely have non-toxic, animal-safe dyes and can do it for you.

I think dying is kind of silly and unnecessary, but not actually a bad thing, provided the dyes are safe for the dog and don't cause irritated skin and such.

If your poodle is black, don't bother, the dye won't even show up.

Um, wow, are you serious?
Not that I have anything against dying your dogs hair (though it looks dumb), but you DON'T use human hair dye on animals.
Hot Topic sells pet safe dye, and you can also use food coloring or sugarless kool-aid mix. There are no permanent dyes that are safe for animals as far as I know. Permanent dyes are usually very harsh with lots of chemicals.
It's considered animal cruelty in some places to use non-animal safe products on your pet (such as hair dye), and whether it's legislated or not, it's still cruel.
If your dog is black, it's unlikely that any dye will really show up on them anyway.

Colouring a dog's fur has been outlawed in Turino, Italy - thank heavens. Wouldn't even think of doing it.

They also have laws in Turin (and Italy as a whole) that says dogs must be walked 3 times a day (3 in Turin, 4 in Rome!), or the guardian could face a fine. While I agree that some laws are needed (like preventing people from docking tails & ears for looks), suggesting that I have the time (or my dog has the stamina) to have 3 walks a day is a little extreme. I have a small dog... we take a half hour walk every morning. If he goes more than that, he will sleep for the next 4 hours! While I don't mind him sleeping through the day, if we go for another walk in the evening, I might as well forget about doing any training or grooming him or even having cuddle time with him, because he'll crash hard and sleep all night. Some dogs need it, but honestly.... some of their laws go a little too far, IMO.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2004/03/07/wlob07.xml&sSheet=/news/2004/03/07/ixworld.html

On the dyeing topic; I have a white dog--Maltese-- and the only times he's been coloured was when he rubbed against a wall I was painting iin my house (he's had a purple patch and is now sporting a red patch). Poodle hair cuts are, IMO, embarassing enough, why in the world you'd want to make them look more ridiculous by colouring them, I have no idea. Besides, what colour *could* you make a black dog turn??
I'm thinking the original poster is a :troll:

September 1st, 2006, 01:56 PM
DM, I disagree about the laws, I think they're great. Maybe your dog can't handle 3 30 min walks a day, but you should take him out at least three times for a 5-10 min walk, it not only gives him the exercise he needs, but a chance to socialize, something that even the most well adjusted dog needs to maintain throughout life. I wish we had such laws here, then maybe I wouldn't see so many obese ddogs lying on balconies.

MyBirdIsEvil
September 1st, 2006, 02:24 PM
I wish we had such laws here, then maybe I wouldn't see so many obese ddogs lying on balconies.

I think part of that is the fact that people overfeed their dogs. Some dogs will eat as much food as you put down and some people also don't know what a healthy weight looks like. I dunno how many people I've run into that say "OMG! Your dogs are WAY too skinny!", and their dog is overweight. My dogs aren't skinny, they're in perfect body condition. My collie is lanky 'cause he's 8 months old and growing, and my 10 month old is muscular, stout, and you can't see any of her ribs (she has kind of a chow build), but you can feel them if you push down a little, which is perfect. Yet people think they're wayyy too skinny.
Some people also think it's cruel to keep your dog from eating as much food as it wants.

Anyway, that was :offtopic:

I have a problem with those two products. Neither of them state 'non-toxic' on the label or in the description. They are intended for people, not pets. People know better than to ingest the products. Pets lick themselves. They could be poisoned, which could prove fatal. Please, stick with products that are proven safe for animals.

Most groomers that do the show competitions use chalk or food coloring to colour their own dogs for safety reasons , currently their is only one company in Japan that makes a hair colorant for dogs but it is not available world wide yet, so if you want a safe commercial dog dye then you will have to wait a few years as stated it is only good for light coloured dogs.

Maybe instead learn about creative grooming http://www.prestigegroomingacademy.com/Pet_ColourDye.htm

I can think of one reason I would want to dye Den-Den - just his ears - nostalgia. As a puppy, he had the sweetest, red ears! No, I'd never do it for fear I'd spoil the beautiful ears he has now. But ... sometimes, I do miss those puppy ears. Cream poodle puppies frequently have apricot that gradually fades to off-white.

As long as the dye isn't harmful, I don't think it's a big deal, personally. It falls into the same category as non-functional pet clothes (ie clothes just meant to "decorate" a dog as opposed to keeping it warm or protect its feet or such) to me. Not something I would do, but whatever floats your boat. :)

After almost working at a store that only sells doggy clothing, I sort of get it better now. With big dogs, even in the cold most of them can regulate their own body temp pretty well. Small doggies have a much harder time with it, so you have to do something about it. And if you're going to do something about it, why not go all the way? :D

Personally, I'd rather see a little doggy all dressed up than a little doggy shaking from the cold with no protection at all.:shrug:

Your mom has done an absolutely gorgeous job, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to dress your dogs or co-ordinate them, it simply shows a reflection of how special you think your dogs are, it is called spoiling and pampering, for Callie I had made her a faux fur coat to match my own, I used to do a lot of public events to help promote adoption, and the dogs part of the team.
there are a lot breeds that do not have undercoats or coats that repel water and snow, so they tend to feel the cold just like the little guys, in a lot of cases as dog age they also have troubles same with medical conditions like hypothyroidism, or hip dysplaysia(sp?) clothes in the summer can help to prevent sunburns in thin coated breeds and also to protect them from insect bites.

In some cases people want their pets to be part of their special events in their lives, for example I did this collar for someone who wanted their dog in their wedding http://s3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/mleg2001/collars/th_P1010001.jpg

I'm not condoning this action either (and I really never heard about this until just the other day) ....but if the person is going to do it regardless, then why not try Kool-Aid? I do know of many people here in the United States who use the dry Kool-Aid drink mix as a hair dye. Honest-To-God! I was really surprised when I first heard of this, but I worked beside an African American lady who had jet black hair and she used raspberry Kool-Aid to make her hair have a deep mahogany sheen to her dark hair. She swore by its effectiveness and said she knew of many people do it. It was news to me at the time! Over the years, I've heard of others who do it as well. I know that if you spill Kool-Aid on carpet, its a goner. Nothing can take out the black cherry or raspberry colors (not sure what other "flavors" or "colors") but you can forget that stuff ever coming out of your carpet.

In any case, if this person is going to dye her dog's hair irregardless of what she's been told on this forum, maybe she could try that and it would be gentler on the dog's skin. :crazy:

I've lived most of my life in rural B.C. and the only time I've seen a dog dressed up is to protect it from the elements. Except for some people do put barrettes or ribbons and bows in the little breeds. I've never seen a dyed dog except in pictures. Perhaps this is all a city thing?

Again, Clairol Jazzing is intended for humans, not animals. It may be non-toxic for humans, but that doesn't mean that an animal won't get sick if it ingests any of the colouring. You took an awful chance just to have a blue dog. :(

I think it's silly to dress dogs up for the fun of it, but a lot of weather conditions really do necescitate some doggy apparel, and I applaud the people who can overlook the fact that they may look a little silly with a dog in a snowsuit, for the safety of the dog. Also, I see nothing wrong with doggie halloween costumes, but do see something wrong with dyeing your dog with dyes designed for human hair. Before you put that dye on your dog, take a lick of it, because that's what your dog is going to be doing.

by the way....(i learned this in one of my classes...safety with mediums, it applies to everything)....

if something says "non toxic" they only do the non toxic test for 24 hours. A non toxic marker is still toxic after 24 hours of use becaus eyou inhale it. THat hair dye that's so non toxic WILL be toxic if you keep it on for more than an hour. Why do you think it starts burning and your hair starts falling out?

Keep that in mind everyone, just because it's NON TOXIC it doesn't mean it's safe to eat/inhale/use on sensitive skin *hint* hint*

I agree rather you spray, dye, or dress up your dog its YOUR CHOICE! The spray that 'muckypup' posted about WAS nontoxic and STILL got bashed...Explain that. The spray was from an online dog store. It proves the point that there are plenty of people who chose to dye their dogs (rather they choose to post so-for fear of being bashed!- or not;)) Amen to you and your poodle is as blue as you want him to be :)

BTW if you have ever put bows, clothes, or painted your dogs toenails you really have no reason to bash this one person for 'dressing' their dog. and HOW THE F do you people know they were using 'human dye'? One flippin person said the the jazz stuff was clairol-the original poster never disclosed exactly what dye they used be it doggie or human.

True Jiorji. Non-toxic to whom too? Non-toxic to us is not the same as non-toxic to a dog.

This comment was from original poster:

Hi I want to dye my teacup and standard poodle with the jazzaling dye

So was this one:

its a human dye i know many people who use it. and clairol does make thie.

They said they want to dye their dog with "jazzaling" dye, then they mentioned it's human dye and Clairol makes it. No, they didn't say they DID use it, but they said they WANT to use it, which is what people are replying to.

Dying a dog is the same to me as dressing up a dog (for looks, not for protection against the cold . . . you know, doggie swimsuits and hats and things.) It's decorative and "for fun" and not something a dog would ever "naturally" do. But as long as it's not harmful to the dog and the dog doesn't mind, I don't see any harm.

I don't know anything about the product the OP used, so I can only hope that it's non-toxic. Personally, I would've used Kool-Aid . . . That's definitely digestible. ;)

I suggest that you read all of the posts before you comment. "Jazzaling dye" (Actually Jazzing dye, which I clarified with the OP that that is what they used in the first couple of posts) is for HUMAN hair. Just becaus a pet website sells it, does not mean it's safe.
Putting bows, clothing etc on your dog is compeltely different..... because......ta da! IT'S SAFE!!!!! It does not burn the skin, it can not be injested and posion the dog, and, it's TEMPORARY! You can keep it on for 5 min or 5 hours, but the point is, you can take it off. With dye, it stays on until it wears off. It's just not right.

D123squirt is the original poster, and has just confirmed that s/he did use the Jazzing dye on his/her dog.

BoxerMom, I agree that dying or dressing up your dog is a person's choice. BUT, if a person is going to come on here and admit that they made the conscious decision to do something harmful to their dog even after everyone warned them against it, don't expect us to applaud them.

I've said this a few times times before. Just because a product is deemed non-toxic to humans doesn't mean it is safe for pets. Humans know better than to lick the product. Dogs don't. Like PuppyLuv said, too, just because someone sells it on the web doesn't mean it's safe.

Actually, if you put clips in your poodle's hair, I've been told you have to move them around frequently or the hair around them falls out permanently.:shrug:
