Dyeing dog's coat in fun colors is fairly new. It works best for dogs with long white or light color coats, but not black.
NYC offers 15 fun shades of dyes for dogs. These are semi-permanent dyes that could last from three to six months depending on the dog's type of coat.
The NYC personnel we spoke with said the rates differ per job as dogs come in different sizes and coat types. But dyeing a grown-up poodle's ears, for example, could cost more or less P3,000 she said.
Abroad, dyeing pets' coats are getting more common that there's even a pet grooming contest held in New Jersey, USA recently to showcase it as an art form. The groomers took it to a higher level by even creating images on the dog's and cat's coats which in effect make the animals their live art medium.
One dog's coat was cut and dyed to look like he's adorned with butterflies, a cat's color and cut were made to look like Scooby Doo, while a poodle showcased Disney characters all over his body – all by using complicated haircuts and dyes.
So far, this new hairstyle for dogs has reached Japan's dog sporting events. The square and sphere style haircut is not cheap though. Grooming salons were said to be charging around £25 per dog as the elaborate haircut takes two hours to complete.
