I think it looks pretty cool, very creative. As a groomer I have dyed a few dogs that came into the shop. We had a Bichon who was a regular that we always did something different every year right before he went to the Blessing of the Animals.

I'm sorry but none of these dogs ^^ looks very comfortable.

Much as groomers might appreciate the artistic quality of their endeavors (and, yes, there is a lot of creativity and skill involved here), I believe that one should consider that this is being done to a living creature who may not be entirely thrilled with being treated like a Barbie Doll.

I'm not sure it's abuse, but I can't fathom wasting the time.

Thanks for posting. Cute pics,
We better get a petition up against beauty salons for abusing all the women getting dye jobs!
I understand this is done fo show. I don't have a problem with it. If that's the worst an animal endures they are living the good life.
My show dogs have to go through full groomings sometimes every week. Must enjoy it some because they push and shove to be the first one on the table Any sensible person also would not use toxic dyes. Definitely not more toxic than the wearable flea control we put on our dogs.

Hummm.....I have never been forced to get my hair dyed. Flea products?? What benefit is there in having fleas???

I look at my dog's treatment as the best thing FOR them. Not, "the worst they could endure".

Just sad.

I really doubt it bothers the dogs. Not something I would do, but whatever. Those chow pandas are really cute.
