Secrets to Dog Training: Consultation


Please help!

I have a problem with ubiquitous chewing gum on our Rottweiler’s coat. Friends of our boy (or my wife’s nieces when they visited) have been chewing gum and throwing it on the paved area in front of our house. "Ron" has been rolling on the ground and has got it on his shoulder and more seriously, on the side of his face about an inch from his eye. Ordinary dog shampoo won’t touch it, his coat is short haired so I can’t cut it off, and I have also tried rubbing alcohol. No success!

I definitely don’t want to try petrol or paraffin near his eye so please can you recommend something which I can use to remove/breakdown the gum – which might be available at a hardware store or "local" corner shop.

We are in East Indonesia so our choice of materials/available ordinary chemicals is not like it would be in a "civilized" metropolis.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks and Regards,

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your email. It seems that you have tried a couple of things to remove the gum in Ron's coat with little success. Fortunately I have another couple of suggestions.

You could try freezing the gum with ice cubes. This will cause the gum to harden, and when that happens, you can break or lift the gum off.

Or you could try using Peanut Butter (full fat version) or salad oil to remove the gum.This is a much safer option than using a chemical substance, because it’s likely your dog will lick himself afterwards! Work the peanut butter or oil thoroughly into the gum using your fingers to soften it. Then, shampoo your dog, and if there is still some gum left in his coat, repeat the process.

Good luck Paul!

Kind regards,

"Secrets to Dog Training - STOP Dog Behavior Problems!"

Hi, my name’s Daniel Stevens, I’m the creator of Secrets to Dog Training.

I've been a professional dog trainer for well over 20 years, and in that time I've helped thousands of dog owners just like you to get the friendly, well behaved, slipper fetching, best pal they always wanted.

But it didn't start out that way. I've always loved dogs, some things never change. But when I first started my professional dog training career I relied on the so-called 'best practices' when it came to dog behavior training. It was only when I heard people tell me over and over again that they just weren't seeing results that I started to question the old accepted wisdom. So I started a journey, a quest to search out the best, most effective, techniques, tips, and tricks that really work.

And that's how I came up with Secrets to Dog Training. Year after year I found new techniques that achieved the results I wanted. Eventually I had a whole book worth of great resources: Secrets to Dog training...

So, if you want to:

  • TRAIN your dog effectively
  • CARE for your dog the way they deserve
  • UNDERSTAND just why your dog behaves the way they do
  • NURTURE a life-long relationship with your dog that you'll cherish

Then Secrets to Dog Training is just what you've been looking for!
