Eating & Mustaches,Beards, & Ears?

How do your long haired Havs eat with all that hair hanging down?

Do any of you tuck the hair back while the Havs are eating?

What is the secret?

DH mostly hand feeds his sweetie pie
I feed him out of a small flat dish and his ears hang to the sides so they don't get in the food. Cicero is a neat eater. He starts at the edge and eats till he gets to the middle -- then looks at me and I have to turn the dish around so he will finish. Can you say "spoiled"!!

Oh my gosh, Dale. I am just cracking up over Cicero having you trained to turn the dish for him!

Pin the hair back?? Nah, they're just dogs! I feed kibble so it doesn't really matter if their hair were to fall in the dish but I don't think it does. Because I also give salmon oil with one feeding they get the oil around their mouth and smell fishy, but that would still happen if the hair was pulled back.

I just wash her face after she eats. Or, if it's not too messy, I wait for it to dry and comb it out.

We got water bottles for them to drink from (like the kind in rabbit cages) and have them attached to the side of the kitchen island. We have two - one for each dog, since sometimes they like to drink at the same time. It has sure made a difference with wet, dripping beards and spotty floors! And the best thing is the dogs loved them right from the start and wouldn't even use their water bowl anymore - maybe they like being dry and clean too?

The food issue doesn't really arise as they both eat kibble (from a plate or the floor, of course!).

I have to feed Lola out of a Kong because she is such a pig she would scarf down her food too fast. She eats a raw diet and does still get food in her beard. I almost always wipe her face after eating with a pre-moistened wipe from Nature's Bath. It is also a chance to get the eye boogers out, and wipe off any tearing. Then I comb out her face with a flea comb and that gets the last of the food and boogers. (As I describe this I can't believe I do this.) Lola hates all of it but it is about "getting a cookie" at the end. So after eating I ask her if she wants a cookie, and she trots right over to the counter where the wipes and cookies live.

Regardless of whether I wash her face or not, she will always scoot along with her face on the rug or furniture to scratch or clean it herself. We refer to this as her break-dancing routine. I allow it on the floor/rug but not on the silk bedspread, cashmere throws or the furniture!

Dorothy~ Tori's been drinking from a water bottle for quite awhile now and I agree, it definitely helps keep the face dry. However, wet face aside, she has to have a water bottle to drink from, otherwise she tips the bowl over. We have hardwood floors so, this is a big

Anne~ With the exception of using the Kong, your routine sounds similar ours. Tori's eats raw for dinner and she sleeps w/us, so I definitely have to clean her face/muzzle before
