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.
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.
I assured him I knew what I was doing. He seemed skeptical at first, but with the help of a few treats, I talked him into it.
It went so wrong, so fast. I guess some things are better left to the professionals.

8. Oh, poor Mimi…
Abort the mission!
My advice: abort this 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…
For the first time ever, I gave my dog a haircut. It went about how you would have expected. pic.twitter.com/C06kvg4OZO

11. Damn right is it.
He’s a mess!
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!
