  1. Do not like this at all. Dyes are so caustic and smell awful – imagine how it would smell to a sensitive canine nose (no mention is made if these dye products used are safe – I really hope so) and the “Tiger/elephant” looks like his ears were cropped to look rounded. Grrr… Cut on your own ears first, leave the poor pooch have his natural ears.

  2. The ears on the tiger are completely made of hair, the dogs actual ears are the tigers cheeks. Its all about illusion. Do some research before you freak out. This is a form of competition, pet owners typically do not pay for this because it would cost several hundred dollars. The dyes are pet safe

  3. It’s cute I admit but isn’t it dangerous for the dogs to have dye? Why do we need to do this?
