I can barely keep up with the latest fashion trends as it is. And if you expect me to keep up with trends for my dog? Forget it.

Of course, most dog owners think of their pets as members of the family, perhaps they even consider them their children. Just as parents support teenagers trying to be up-to-date with the latest trends, many pet parents try to keep up with the latest doggy trends including beer for dogs (don’t worry — it’s nonalcoholic and good for them) or even eyebrows for dogs.

The latest dog-grooming trend comes straight to us from Taiwan, and though the results seem pretty ridiculous to us, they’re doing it with the best of intentions, and hopefully some good things can happen to shelter and rescue dogs who need a little extra attention.

Take a look at this bizarre grooming technique and let us know what you think about it in the comments!
