Thanks everyone. I do clip her backside myself in between her being groomed but no matter how much I trim it, she seems to put her entire backside down in her mess. I guess I will just have to wipe her every time she goes. I just never had a dog that did that before.

I have a female GP that when she goes to the bathroom, she sits her whole backside in her mess so her otherwise white fur is not so white back there. What is the best and safest way to clean that area to get it clean and white in between baths? I am constantly brushing and spraying it with a water bottle but she hates being brushed and doesn't want to be sprayed either and the water kind of smears some of the mess making it more difficult to clean. I was wondering if baby wipes would work and if it is safe to use? Or if there are any other better suggestions?

My mom told me about an article she saw in the newspaper about Dogster. It seemed like a really good site to meet other dog lovers, get good advice and support when needed. I am very sad to see it shut down.

Grooming > Do groomers get a tip?

Thanks for the responses. Like I said previously, I thought they should be tipped too, but I was thrown off when the owner told me years ago that he doesn't accept tips so I guess I thought since then that groomers don't get tipped. My dogs are big and very furry and I know they aren't the best with getting brushed let alone groomed so believe me when I say I am completely appreciative of a good groomer! puppy

I've been taking my dogs to get groomed at the same place for years. The first time I went years ago, I tried to tip the guy who did the grooming and he said he doesn't accept tips. Incidentally, he is the owner. Yesterday, I bought my dog to get groomed and the lady who was at the front desk who I handed the payment to looked like she was expecting a tip. Now I feel terrible because I came with just the amount for the service. What is the proper etiquette here? Does the owner not expect a tip but everyone else is supposed to be tipped? I never really know who the groomer will be working on my dog. Am I supposed to ask who the groomer was and hand them the tip myself?

Great Pyrenees > Anxiety with thunder and fireworks........

THE GREAT WHITE- HYPE!

I recently adopted a 5 year old female Great Pyrenees. She has extreme anxiety with loud noises particularly with thunder and fireworks. I tried the thunder shirt and it doesn't seem to help. They've already started lighting off fireworks in my neighborhood and I think she now associates nighttime with loud sounds. She will not go out at night anymore even when there are no sounds. I have to pull her out the door and she when she finally does go out, she walks extremely slow and is panting heavily. She won't sniff the ground or even attempt to go to the bathroom. It's like she is just going through the motions. And I'm sure she does have to go to the bathroom and will hold it in until the next morning which worries me because it's unhealthy and also in case she has an accident inside. Any advice is greatly appreciated. shrug

I was afraid of the same thing - ingesting hairspray, glitter and even the non-toxic glue. I think it's a complete waste of money too and I laughed at the designer's comment as well. I don't need my dog to be fashion forward - just happy and healthy.
