Dying your dog’s fur is fun and your four-legged companion will look absolutely adorable. Whether you want to dye your dog’s fur for a holiday, a special event or just for fashion’s sake, choose one of the best dog safe hair dyes and be sure to follow the instructions.
Why Shouldn’t I Use Regular Hair Dye?
Dogs lick their fur for grooming purposes. They also have a natural tendency to lick the new things they encounter. If you apply hair dyes meant for humans on your dog’s fur, you will expose your pet to harmful chemicals.
Hair dyes made for human hair have a pH adapted to human skin. Because animals have a very different skin pH, these products are likely to cause an adverse reaction.

You can have some fun with pet-friendly hair dyes without endangering your best friend. Take the time to read the instructions that came with the product you selected, follow them carefully, and pay attention to stress-levels since this process could upset a dog who is naturally prone to stress.
