It is a real dog...or so it says...There are lots of grooming competitions where they do these crazy things....and if you watch some videos alot of the dogs seem to really like to be groomed! Lady would not be one of those dogs...but some just love it. I remember a video being posted on here about a dog who would get so excited when he would go for a grooming.
Well it's mad but as long as the dog is relaxed and enjoying the attention!
They don't have self awareness like we and the dogs don't live in these styles.
So if the dog is not compromised in any way its not a dangerous activity
