Any pet owner knows that keeping your animal's fur clean can be a chore. One problem that dogs are prone to, particularly those with light fur, is the brown discolouration that can form around the dog's mouth. Although this is a natural occurrence, it is unsightly. By staying on top of grooming, however, you can remove your dog's stained fur and prevent the problem from coming back.

  1. 1

    Run the washcloth under warm tap water.

  2. 2

    Wring it out so that it is damp but not soaked.

  3. 3

    Gently wipe the areas of your dog's mouth that are brown with the damp rag.

  4. 4

    Repeat this process once a day until the stains disappear.

  5. 5

    Take your pet in for a grooming, or groom it yourself. Trimming the hair will remove stained fur and allow clean fur to grow in.
