Dark staining under chin

I have a two year old black and white havanese who is bathed and groomed regularly. I cannot seem to remove dark stains under her chin. Any ideas would be appreciated.

If what you see are saliva stains, I don't think there is much that you can do. Just try and keep the face clean. Many say to use filtered water in one of those water dispensers where they have to lick the spigot. Like what you see in a hamster cage. Willow uses one and gets filtered water plus I keep her face clean. However, she still has saliva stains.

Perry uses a water bottle because if he drinks water too fast he throws up... but he still gets his chin soaked when he eats his breakfast / dinner

I had the same issue. Finally figured out that it was from having a wet face all the time. I changed to this travel non-spill water bowl - prestige road refresher. It is available on Amazon. It took a few months but the staining stopped. See before and after pictures.

Wow - the before and after shows a huge difference. Nothing seems to really help with Willow. I've grown used to it though. It always looks worse when she is wet. Not nearly so bad when she is dry.

My Bichon had this. I switched to Pyrex bowls and that fixed it.

Oh! My Gosh ... those are some STAINS. LOL!!! Sounds like you are the expert on this issue. You have a beautiful dog and we do not want stains around that lovely face.

I see you have her Looped Around the Chest on the grooming table. Does that work better than around the neck? I have perpetual-motion-dog on the grooming table.

I purchased same non-spill drinking bowl Barabara recommended about a month ago. I had their water bowl on a mat, but with Truffles long beard water dripped all over the hardwood floors. Plus I had to always follow her around and dry her off. I tried the Prestige bowl and it solved the problem. I can see it helping to prevent staining if the coat was white .

I really don't need the loop which is why I put it around his chest. If he is on the counter he walks all over the place but if I put him on the grooming table he normally stays. The grooming loop just reinforces that he isn't supposed to leave. It doesn't keep him from turning in circles though. He hates when I brush the back of his legs so he tries to turn and face me.

I use that same one for training and trials, but it doesn’t hold enough water for 3 dogs at home. I’d be filling it multiple times a day. For multiple dog households, this one does the same thing... only letting a little water into the drink cup at a time, so their beard doesn’t get wet, but the resevoir is big enough that I only need to fill it once in the morning:
