Any regular dish detergent like Dawn works very well -- just let it sit for a bit and then give a good scrubbing. If you get a blue dish detergent, the blue color actually helps whiten the fur as well.

Using my shampoo did it...also, lemon-fresh joy (which has the added benefit of killing/repelling fleas)....just dilute the joy with water (otherwise it's a pain in the ass to rinse out).

Because training caused the staining.

because the grey marks are from a prong collar, and a prong collar is a training collar, so this is in the training section.

At the groomer my girls works at they use palmolive for really stained areas and it works great.. Although obvious keep it away from the face :)

I've heard that using a Stainless Steel prong collar will prevent that grey staining on the neck.

The regular chrome plated steel ones do make a white dog's neck grey and stainless steel does not "shed" the metal color.

I think Herm Springer makes one. It might be worth a try.
