Purebred Breeders: Dye/Paint your Dog's Hair

Want to dye your dog’s hair?
Just like we get tired of our hairstyles, we sometimes feel like our furry companions might need a little spicing up as well, other than the usual grooming.  Purebred Breeders is offering an easy and safe way to temporarily add some color into your dog’s look.
What you will need:
  • Food coloring or unsweetened Kool-aid powder
  • Room temperature water
  • Spray bottle
  • Dog brush
  • Towels

  1. Before you begin, make sure the dog is clean.  Pick a food coloring or Kool-aid powder that matches the color you are trying to achieve.
  2. Mix the coloring or powder with room-temperature water and place the mix in a spray bottle.
  3. Saturate the hair with the water mix.
  4.  Brush through the hair with a comb or brush to ensure even saturation.
  5. You can choose to either blow-dry the hair on a low setting or to let the dog dry naturally.  Remember to place the dog in an area covered with towels during the drying process, as the colored water could drip onto a surface that is stainable.

Never use on a dog a hair dye that is meant for humans!  Avoid the area around your dog’s eyes when coloring the hair.


If you are dying your dog’s hair in different colors, make a few spray bottles with the different colored ‘dyes’ and if the hair is long enough, tie the sections as you dye them to prevent the colors from bleeding.

For detailed designs, use a brush or squirt bottle if necessary.
