Shaving designs into hair isn’t a new idea, but applying the technique to dogs? Now that’s something I’ve never seen before! According to groomers Jessica Allegri and Amanda Marshall, who came up with the idea during a quiet day at their shop Groomers on the Green, these temporary “tattoos” or “pooch patches” do not hurt (except your dog’s pride, maybe). The whole process — shaving the design with clippers — takes about an hour and lasts up to 14 weeks. Of course, this leads us to our Bark Out Loud question this month:

Would you give your dog a “pooch patch” or temporary hair tattoo? If yes, what design would you choose?
