If you are the kind of person who enjoys dressing your dog - then perhaps this is the next step.
These pets have been transformed into a bison, a court jester and a scorpion at America's extreme dog grooming contests.
The dogs have all been sheared and coloured in the name of art.
Animal photographer Ren Netherland from Florida, travels thousands of miles every year capturing these stunning transformations at 'creative grooming' shows around America.
In addition to sculpting other animal's out of their beloved pooches, competitors also carve intricate designs such as a Native American headdress on the side of their 'buffalo' dog,
It takes two intense hours for the creative groomers - mainly women - to produce their masterpieces before facing judges.
Expert dog snapper Ren said: 'The owners have to grow out their dog's hair in preparation for the show - so that it's long enough for them to make something.
'They train and rehearse throughout the year in preparation for the competition, whittling their creation down to a fine art.
'The best thing for spectators is that when the poodles fist come onto the stage, they just look like normal poddles.
'Suddenly they are transformed before your eyes into something colourful and completely different.
'The dogs seem to enjoy the pampering and all the attention.'
