  • What to Do When Dog Splashes your Face

    I work at a rescue place and bathe there but I keep getting acne whenever dog splashes my face while bathing them. What should I do in order to avoid? And yes they are very dirty and that happens when I shampoo

    Hardware stores have a full face plastic mask. Not glasses, it's a full safety guard. Easy to wear and can still see everything.

      Have you tried wearing a full clear plastic face screen/ mask thingy that dentists and orthopedic surgeons use ? I've got one for drying big shedding hairys, works well for me. Work got it for me so not sure where you could get one? Maybe amazon ?

        Hang a shower curtain that you can duck behind when they shake. You can usually see it coming. That and turn your head away should work

            Protection, as others have said, would help. But why let them shake all over in the first place? You can usually tell when it's coming, so hold the dog's head in place by putting your hand on the side of the head. When you control the head, you can control the body. I don't like to get wet! When the bath is done, I have a towel handy to cover my face, and then, I let them shake.
            Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

            Groom on!!!

                      If for some reason you don't have the mask or other protection, take a clean wash rag and some apple cider vinegar. Wet the rag and work in a little of the vinegar and this dilutes it a little, or in glass dilute the ACV like 1 to 3 with water. Then lightly wipe your face. Amazing results. Many stars and models use ACV on their skin on red spots, but I started do thing proactively and don't get the red spots. Let it dry and later you can moisture as it can dry skin. I don't get acne but I do get red spots from gunky dogs like you.

                        Great suggestions. I have rosacea and get breakouts from time to time if I forget to rinse my hair during the evening shower. This sounds like great thing to try. Thanks!!!

                          I found one on Amazon for $10! So going to try this as I hate my safety glasses always fogging up.

                            I think mask is the best solution.

                              If this happens, don't open your eyes or mouth and intake anything. That's my first reaction. And that was a learned response. LOL I have clean towels right there at the tub, so I grab for one of those.
