Pic shows: Dog with shapely haircuts. Dog owners in Taiwan are queueing up to take part in the latest craze by getting their pets shapely haircuts. Although cutting hedges into shapes has been practised for centuries, the idea of cutting a dog's fur to give it similar shapes has only recently taken off, with hairdressers opening up to cater for demand. Hairdresser Tain Yeh, 42, who runs a parlour in the Taiwanese capital Taipei said: "I am aware of the trend although we don't have much request for it here because it's very difficult to keep the shape. It came about because people were always looking for more impressive haircuts, and somebody came up with the idea of shaping the dog like a hedge." Pictures of the dogs with their shapely haircuts proved extremely popular on social media platforms prompting ever more people to sign up for grooming and to get shaped dogs of their own. Proud pet owners have realised that having their beloved pet looking groomed and tidy will mean a lot more likes, and a lot more shares, than a messy pet. Tain said: "The dogs don't mind, and the owners keep coming back for more. This sort of haircut needs a lot more maintenance then the regular type. It is also not suitable for all breeds. The dog needs to have plenty of hair to play around with so that you can shape it around the face and body." (ends)
