Any light-colored dog can be dyed using Kool-Aid, no matter what size or breed the dog is. A small dog can be dyed in the sink; a large breed may require a kiddie pool or big tub. Your dog should be clean and dry before beginning for best results.

Step 1

Fill the tub or sink with warm water.

Step 2

Add the Kool-Aid and stir with a wooden spoon to blend.

Step 3

Place the dog in the water.

Step 4

Use the plastic cup to pour Kool-Aid over your dog's shoulders and back. The dye will work best is you can immerse your dog for 5 minutes; some dogs will enjoy this more than others.

Step 5

Drain the tub and refill it with warm water. Pour warm water over the dog to remove extra dye. Drain the tub and allow your dog to air dry on a porch or patio.

  • Expect the color to last for a few days or a few weeks, depending on the breed of dog and the intensity of the color.

  • Wear gloves to keep the dye off your hands.

  • Don't use dye formulated for humans on dogs, it could harm your pet.

  • If you have an acrylic tub or sink, use a baby pool instead -- the dye could stain your bathtub.

  • These directions can be used for light colored chickens, rabbits and cats as well.

  • A dog that already likes to be bathed will not resist the dyeing process.

  • It will not hurt your dog to drink the water; the Kool-Aid is edible and sugar free.

Items You Will Need

  • Warm water
  • 5 packets of sugar free cherry or strawberry Kool-Aid (add 2 more packets if you have a very large dog.)
  • Wooden spoon
  • Plastic cup
