Removing Poison Ivy Oil from a Dog?

How can I get poison ivy oils off my dogs without actually bathing them? I was hoping to be able to use something like the dog wipes, but can't find any that are for poison ivy/oak.

My step dad is a firefighter and he recommended for me when I got poison Ivy to use Hydrogen Peroxide or rubbing alcohol to try and dry the affected area. By drying it out, it helps get rid of the irritating oils. You can try that, although I'm not sure how it will work for dogs. Hope this helps :)

I was just reading about using wipes and a vet recommended using rubbing alcohol on a towel. I am going to try that.
