Whether it’s a warm bath or a day at the doggy salon, it’s important to make man’s best friend feel precious and pampered. Yet as owners, sometimes we can take things that one step too far. Anyone who has ever tried to give their pooch a trim will know it’s no walk in the park. For some fun ideas of what not to do we have browsed high and low to bring you the most bizarre dog grooming photos we could find. Be warned, these may get you some odd looks in the puppy playground.

If you have the urge to pick up the grooming clippers and create your own slightly more normal doggy designs, it’s recommended that you learn from the experts before you begin.  Do not fear, on most courses hair dye will not be on the equipment list.
