Ok new delima - I noticed that I must have clipped Lady's skin when cutting off the stickers and she keeps licking the spot. What can I put on it that will help but not hurt her?

Hi, I'm new, but I've had Cleo (a shelterpoodle, small miniature apricot) about 3.5 years. Her back fur's not as thick as my previous poodles, showing freckles if cut too short. Yet, of course, burrs happen, especially when exploring our streamside parks. Cleo really doesn't like the wire slicker brushes much, nor the hairbrush styles.

A few months ago, I happened on a plastic palm brush thing (loop goes around my middle finder) that she really enjoys. I bought a couple extra at our local beauty supply store for 59 cents each(!)--to leave in the cars for after-adventure petting/grooming.

Great advice! yes they looked like kiwi - had never seen them before up close and personal. Lady does love to be off the leash and running around. Not many places for her to do that here but I'm still looking...

Are they the kind that look like a teeny-tiny kiwi fruit? This is the time of year for those, and Mitzy loves to stick her head in the underbrush looking for mice, and always comes away with a topknot full! Don't completely rule out off-leash adventure, though. Our kiddos need to stretch their legs. Just be a little more judicious about where you let it happen. Also, I've found if we give them a good brushing BEFORE we "go forth," it makes burrs and such easier to comb out in the end. We've also learned to keep a comb in the car, and comb them out before we load up to come home. I've combed them out on the patio only to find I introduced the weed to my own yard. Duh-OH!

Vaya con perro!

Good ideas. These were nasty little green things that got suck in there on the rest of our walk home. I wish I would have thought of the oil though.... emoticon

If you grasp the sticker, and pull the fur away from it, Don't pull the sticker!! Pull the fur away from the sticker, just hold the sticker steady.

A little oil of any kind makes sticker removal easier. Blast the things!

Lady and I added a local park to our walk today to increase our walk time and (duh) I let her off the leash to run around. Well she got into stickers and I spent 20 minutes when we got home snipping them off of her with scissors. She was very well behaved for me (and glad to have them off I'm sure). Fortunately she was cut short last week so this unfortunate incident shouldn't be too visible. No more off-leash adventures for us.
