I was wondering if anyone has ever dyed their Parti Poodle. I want to shave and dye Sisko's hair. And if I can, what color would look good on him??

Here are some photos.

He is so cute!

About the dye.
I have never dyed a dog but if I did not have a black dog I would have dyed Evie a long time ago. My dog trainer dyes her spoos which are parti's and phantoms and it turns out cute. So, it is very much doable. As to the dying aspect of things, before you dye him I would shave his feet. Just personally to keep the color from getting muddy when he walks around. As for the color, I think that if you dyed the white part of him multi-colored blue and green it would look cute. I would have said purple but he is male, not female.

Good luck.

I wouldn't dye the whole dog. The contrast between the lemon and the white hair is part of what makes him so handsome. I would try trimming him so that he has star or bone shaped rosettes in the middle of his solid patches. Then dye the rosettes. Spot dyeing will also use less dye, and there will be less mess if he does a full body shake before the dye dries.

Thank you!

Whoa! Do you have any pics of them? I'd love to see that.

Okay, thanks! Sisko probably would like the color getting muddy, but I'd be like:? while he's like:???

Okay?! I don't mind using purple on him! I'd dye his hair any color that looks good on him.

Sadly I do not have any pictures of them, and she just clipped them into kennel clips which removed the color.
Purple is just what occurred to me when I first thought about it. To warn you, he will probably be called female if you dye him purple.

Okay, that's okay? I might not have to worry that much though since we don't/can't be around a lot of people right now because of C.V

I use Arctic Fox dye on myself and have seen people use it on their dogs. It’s vegan and doesn’t have a lot of chemicals in typical hair dye so it might be worth looking into. The have photos on their website of how the color looks on different tones of blonde so you might be able to get an idea of how it might look on Sisko’s spots. Comes in awesome colors and smells nice too! ?

Do a search in Amazon for Dog Dye. Maybe select the Opawz Dog Hair Dye.
Then scroll down the page to where it says 'Customer Reviews'.
Across from that is 'Customer Images', click on 'See all customer images'.

I guarantee you will see some of the goofiest and bad dye jobs imaginable, which will entertain you for awhile.

You could try just his feet, they’re all white and might be an easy start. I think blue would contrast nicely with his color hair.
I tried it several years ago but stopped when we got into agility. Now that AKC is allowing color in the ring, I plan to try it again. I used Manic Panic, but I’ve heard Opaws is good form a groomer.
Here’s Misty (not a poodle) with her pink tail, it was fading at that point.

Okay, thank you! Yeah, I'll start with his feet and if he likes it, I can do some of his tail too. I didn't even know that you had to stop when you started agility. I'm happy that they're allowing color in the ring now. I think blue would too. Misty looks awesome!😎
