Red face Puppy keeps getting poop stuck on her butt...

My mutt puppy keeps on getting poop stuck on her behind after going to the bathroom. I know it isn't comfortable because she keeps nipping her rear end. Any suggestions on keeping her rear end nice and tidy without having her feces smeared on her butt?

I keep washing her butt and wiping her down but she gets really fussy.

If it's getting stuck in her fur then I would just trim the fur.

Both my dogs have their "butt fur" shaved every 2-3 weeks.

Ask your groomer for a sanitary trim, they will shave a little "path" so the poo doesn't get stuck to her hair.

Hahaha thank you. She's 8 weeks and the groomer said she's too young to get groomed yet. Any at home solutions? (Can't wait till she's old enough....)

she is not too young to have a sanitary trim. I would ask another groomer to do it. When I worked at a grooming salon we did sanitary trims for like 5 bucks, sometimes we wouldnt even charge

Your vet can do a sanitary clip as well, though it may not look as nice.

What are you feeding her? Sometimes if the diet isn't quite agreeing with them they will have softer poo and it will stick to their fur. My girls have never had sanitary trims (lhasa apso and lhasa/bichon) and they never get poo stuck to their behinds, but they also have nice firm poos.

Just agreeing with everyone else here...Definitely look at changing foods if the pup is having soft stool all of the time. In the meantime I see nothing wrong with her having a small part shaved for sanitary reasons.

I have 4 very hairy little butts and they never have poop stuck to their behinds.
If runny poop is a regular occurance, I think a trip to the vet may be in order and a food change might help as well. But until you get all that straightened away, you can clip/trim her butt-fuzz yourself. You don't need a professional to do that and even if it doesn't turn out great, it does grows back
Congratulations on your new puppy.
How about some pics of the little one? (from the front tho, for obvious reasons...haha)
