We are all in search of new trends, especially when it comes to fashion and this goes the same for pets as well who are being groomed and pampered no end, says Rachitha Dundoo.
New Delhi, January 14, 2020: Fashion is the need of the hour, thanks to social media which has become a platform to express one’s talent, opinion and what not! Whether it’s the all-consuming Facebook, Instagram, Tumbler or Twitter, it’s showtime baby with style trends galore! The trend to look the best and different from others isn’t limited to humans alone – it is slowly taking over the pet industry as well. Pet parents all over the world are looking for new ways, sometimes even bizarre, to make their beloved furbabies look different from the rest.
In China, for instance, people won’t stop at grooming and dressing their pets imitating other animals like a lion or a panda! We have seen t-shirts and dress shirts being tailormade for the pets. When ‘Pokemon Go’ game was released in early 2016, a few pet owners even dyed their dogs and transformed them into their favourite pokemons! Not only this, grooming products also have taken a drastic change. Even pet products are coming in organic, paraben free formulas to enhance their fur and coats. Pet spas have mushroomed even in India and pet parents are going to any extent, be it monetary or fashion, to ensure that their dog looks appealing and beautiful. Here are a few grooming trends, which are here to stay for a while.
Round & Square Shaped Face
We are all inclined towards geometrical structures and this is the latest trend in Taiwan, which is fast taking over the world. The dogs are groomed to sport either round or square shaped faces and this trend has been the highlight of social media for a few months now and videos of pups with the new trim are still doing rounds. Stencilled Designs: People have taken up a new way of showing their support towards their favourite team or a holiday and pets are becoming a live canvas of this trend where stencilled designs are used on their bodies. The colours used are toxins free and are temporary which come off easily after a wash. This also allows one to use creativity to come up with unique designs to pledge their support!
Jewels & Nail Polish
Your pets can now sport colourful nails and both of you can coordinate colours or match your nail colours when getting your nails done. jewelled collars, feathers and headbands are the trends for fashion conscious pet parents. Colour Highlights: Before you latch on to this trend, please ensure that you get this done by a certified dog groomer and ensure that the dye used is non-toxic and vegetable based. Remember that human hair is different from that of a dog’s fur. Do not try to colour the dog with human hair dye as it is harmful for your pets.
