Switch to a high quality 4 or 5 star kibble, solved pup chin acne here.
As your in Brampton, ON, Canada....try Holistic Blend Lamb & Rice (TO company)...it works very well !!

i have read a couple of times to wipe their chin after they have eaten, especially with wet food as it obviously gets all over their chin when they are eating and will only add to the chances

Wash all bowls out after feeding. Change and wash water bowls 2-3 times a day. No plastic bowls. Try and wash all toys.
You can wash the dogs chin with a antibacterial soap or Peroxide on a cotten ball. Put a warm wash cloth on the area for 10min. 3-4 times a day.
If it gets really bad a Vet might have the area tested and give oral or topical antibiotics.
Most times this dog skin problem usually plagues dogs in their teenage years - puppies from 3 months of age and older can get acne.
Inflammation of blocked oil glands caused by scratching;
Hormonal imbalance especially in young dogs and puppies which can be associated with puberty.

Another thing that can cause (or make it worse) chin acne are plastic bowls. I only use stainless steel bowls for all my pets on recommendation of my last boss (a vet), because one of my cats had awful chin acne. It helped a lot.

Yeah, stainless steel, glass or enamel bowls, something with slick surface where no pitting can occur to hold old food bacteria. Wash bowls after feeding. I wiped Parker's chin with stridex pads after eating when he had an outbreak. It was gone by the time I finished the jar.
