Snow clumps on fur

Anyone have suggestions as how to remove clumps of snow from fur
Izzy is almost 2 and loves, loves jumping in the snow. When she comes in she is covered. Her feet, paws, belly,
Even with a coat. Not sure how she comes in with so much snow on her
She hates when I try to remove the clumps and winter has just started.

Any suggestions
Thanks

Sure thing! There are several voices of experience on here, haha!

The best way we've found is to put them in the sink or tub and rinse their legs (and belly, chest, whatever,) with warm water. I've also used a tall cup filled with warm water when I didn't have a sink or tub to use.

You can then dry them with a dryer, wrap them in a warm towel, or just towel dry them and let them air dry before letting them out again.

I put Luna in the shower and rinse them off with water.
The 1st year we had her she didn't have a coat and she could barely walk because of the snow balls (and she was in a puppy cut). Now we have a coat that covers her legs, so she only gets snow balls on her feet and private parts.
(It's a custom k9 cleancoat)

Yup. I usually use the sink with a warm sprayer. But last night, Kodi went out for a long play shortly before bed, and I didn't want to send him to bed wet. So I used the dryers instead. It took longer to get the snow out, but he was close to dry when I finished!

Thanks
Snow really gets attached!
Tried the blower and she went nuts. Warm towel took awhile, but she was patient. I think she realized I was helping, so she wouldn’t have to bite the snow off!!
Winter is just starting. This should be fun

Snow clumps

Snow really seems to like Havanese
It’s probably their short little front legs!
