Chow Beards !!!

Postby Hades&Titan » Tue Mar 07, 2017 2:17 pm

my chow pup is now 7 months and under his chin (we call it his beard) is always wet ! we are always drying and brushing it but he always drinks and makes it wet again and it never has time to dry naturally at all ( he is rough coat) i see so many photos of chow chows and they all look so nice and not wet in that area and they are quite rare where we live so ive never seen one before to compare :)

I try to keep a towel handy to wipe away the excess. This does not always work and my crew often have wet beards (or bibs... as I call it) Once a week I rinse out the bib area and blow dry it. I only do a complete shampoo about once a month. Many do not bathe that often but my crew always seem to find the muddy spots of the yard. They all sleep inside and I try to keep the inside of the house from looking like a barn. Good luck!

You could always trim some off the beard and it would really help. I've done that in the past so if you don't mine a little shorter beard area you could try it. Please post a picture of it so we can see what you are talking about.
