Had enough of your Schnauzer for one day. Then sit back, relax and put your feet up. You can let off a little steam here about things unrelated to your four-legged schnauzer.

How do you keep your schnauzers beard clean please!!!!!!!!!! Mollies is always brown at the ends and there must be a secret that no-ones shared with me as no-one elses schauzers look so mucky!

I've often wondered why their beards go that colour you see it in Westies too. I think it looks quite sweet!

I wipe Maggie's developing beard with my husbands flannel when he's not looking. (sing)

I use baby wipes - great for when they've had fish in tomato sauce (sick) .

If they've had something messy, like sardines in tomato sauce, they get the wet flannel treatment.
Other than that, a daily dose of the slicker brush followed by a comb through seems to do the trick with my blacks.

I bath my dogs once a month but they still have stained beards. Every other bath they get a clip with it. I wash there beards 2-3 times each time and use a whitening shampoo, which helps a little bit. Bascically the staining in the beard is from their saliver but I think dog food and the dye thats in it is also a cause? So maybe barf dogs dont have such a problem?
My Westie does have the same problem but not as bad around his face as his hair is not so long, but his feet are brown because of licking, being a Westie he is prone to foot licking!
I have been told that a paste of bicarbonate of Soda removes some of the staining, leave it on for a few minutes then rinse and shampoo off. Bicarb is used for household stain removal in the home too. I have not tried as yet, but worth a try, mind it does not get in the mouth though.

Anyone tried bicarbonate of soda and egg white? Or cider vinegar? Why does bottled water help?

I've tasted the food of my pup few times... and it seemed pretty tasty (not awful as I thought).
