New dog grooming craze hits UK

A NEW craze in which dogs are clipped and dyed into different shapes for wacky competitions is spreading to Britain from the US.

Artists called creative dog groomers take ­owners’ pets and turn them into everything from dragons and chickens to pirates and footballers.

Award-winning British groomer Su Weaver – inspired by the coats of tigers and zebras – has now transformed two poodles named Willow and Floyd into a Tigoodle and a Zeboodle.

“People do a double-take on seeing them out together,” said Su, 36, who owns a dog grooming salon in Rushden, Northants. “Some think the practice is cruel but all our dyes are vegetable-based so the animals are totally unharmed.”

The contests are expected to grow in popularity since a law change on January 1 that allows easier movement of pets between Britain and the US.
