Tips for Stain Removal & Hair Growth :

I have compiled tips from several other breeders and dog owners, how to remove stains from beards, legs, etc. 


Milk of Magnesia and Hydrogen Peroxide in a 50/50 solution. Add corn starch to thicken to paste. Apply literately, work well into coat, allow to dry completely, brush out.

Metal X shampoo made by Clairol, which is available from a beauty supply store, be careful not to get in dogs eyes, leave in for 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly. May need some more applications

Ivory Dishwashing liquid, Glycerin and White vinegar.

Work small amounts into discolored coat, let sit for 3 to 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly, multiple applications make the difference.

5oz Glycerin Gel
5oz Ivory Snow Dishwashing liquid
5oz Shimmering Lights
Mix with water  in 1 gal. bottle, until 3/4 full. Use as shampoo

Shimmering Lights, also by Clairol, be careful with porous coat as this will leave a purple glow.

Massengill powdered douche mixed and leave on yellow stains.

Woolite full strength, let sit a few minutes, takes a few times to see results.

As a last resort:

Cream peroxide 30 volume, stage 7 bleach and 2 applicators (all available at the beauty supply store)

Apply to stained areas and leave in for 30 minutes. Be careful not to touch the skin as this may burn, rinse with COOL water and apply conditioner or close the pores of the coat to prevent breakage and re-staining

SHAMPOO’S, which will help make whites more white, to name a few:

All Systems whitening shampoo; White on White; Bio Groom Super white; Plum White by Kelco; Kote Glo and Self Rinse Plus, both waterless Shampoo's

Hair Growth Remedy

1 lb. Peanut Butter

1 lb. Honey

1 lb. Diaglo Powder or Mirra Coat special care

1 pt. Lavitamin also known as Lixatonic or Pet-tinic

Have peanut butter at room temperature. Mix all ingredients together. This will be very thick and sticky.

Stores indefinitely in refrigerator.

Make into balls according to size of the dog:

Small dogs should get 1-3 teaspoons daily.

Large dogs should get 1-2 tablespoons daily.

Guaranteed to grow hair – even on doorknobs. If you can get the doorknobs to eat and digest this – it will grow hair !!
