All kinds of businesses are closed for now and that means people have to improvise in many aspects of their lives.

You might not have thought about it before all this started, but cutting your pets’ hair is no easy task and is definitely best left to the professionals.

But pet owners are learning the hard way that this is NOT something that should be tried by amateurs…

Let’s look at these epic fails and try not to laugh TOO hard.

1. You had one shot…

And you blew it!

2. He looks downright pissed to me.

Don’t ever try that again.

3. Poor Riley…

We all feel your pain…

4. He might never recover from this one.

Not a pretty picture, that’s for sure.

I, too, gave my dog a deeply regrettable quarantine haircut. I’m so sorry, son.

5. Keep the scissors away.

You are prohibited from ever doing this again.

6. No pants, no problem.

Actually, this looks like a HUGE problem.


7. It went downhill very fast.

I bet you can’t wait for your groomer to open up. And FAST.


8. Oh, poor Mimi…

Abort the mission!

9. At least you apologized.

I hope the dog forgave you…


10. The mohawk is a nice touch.

The dog sure does look confused, though…

11. Damn right is it.

He’s a mess!

This is why we pay professionals…

12. Just like a leopard.

But I don’t think that’s what you were going for…


Yikes…if you’re attempting this at home, we wish you the best of luck.

Have you tried to groom your pets at all while you’ve been stuck inside and businesses have been closed?

If so, please tell us how it’s going and share a photo in the comments!

We’d love to hear from you!
