Photo Series Documents Dogs Before And After Japanese Grooming


I’m an animal photographer and these images are from my photo series titled HAIRY.

All the dogs have been groomed in a Japanese grooming style. Japanese dog grooming does not follow the rules of traditional, breed-standard grooming. In fact, it only has one mission ― to bring out the dogs’ individual personalities and make them look as adorable as possible! With extreme attention to detail and careful consideration of a pup’s best attributes, Japanese dog groomers and salons achieve the perfect transformations by forgetting the uniform looks and getting creative.

All the dogs in the series were groomed by the incredibly talented groomers from Healthy Spot in Los Angeles, CA. Many of the groomers there specialize in this style of cut and have been trained by Japanese masters.

The series is now available in a book called Puppy Styled, available on Amazon and in bookstores everywhere. I hope you enjoy!
