This Dog Groomer Turns Pups Into Adorable Balls Of Fluff

This Dog Groomer Turns Pups Into Adorable Balls Of Fluff

They say it's a dogs life, and the United Kingdom's pet market is one of the biggest in Europe right now with 44 per cent of people claiming to own a furry friend.

It's a whole new ballgame over in Japan though, where dog groomer Yoriko Hamachiyo has mastered the art of transforming dogs into the cutest little fluffballs we've ever seen. What a time to be alive!


Hamachiyo runs a dog salon called Yorikokoro in Tsu, Japan that produces delightfully fluffy pooches, and if his Instagram is anything to go by, we're tempted to hop on a plane right now for a haircut ourselves.

And if you were wondering why, check out these snaps and prepare to explode with a cuteness overload...

First up there's this perfectly spherical pup who looks all pretty for a night on the town


While her date is looking just as dapper with his fresh trim and fancy bow tie.

These two cuties have bonded over their perfectly preened locks

Oh, and there's this dog that's nailed the season's pastel hair trend

We're not actually too sure what's going on here...

This one is too cute for words

Teddy or dog?

Yoriko isn't afraid of a good prop either


Can't justify the flight ticket halfway across the world? These UK-based salons are the next best thing...

Nestled in the heart of Chelsea, The Pet Spa is reserved for the most pampered of pups, with a treatment list of everything from pedicures and tea tree conditioning treatments to a blueberry & vanilla facial.

The only luxury dog spa in North Yorkshire, this puppy sanctuary caters for all breeds of dogs - yep, even if you have a Doberman - with sleep-inducing massages, cuts, styling and blowdries.

3. Posh Pups, Richmond

Part-salon part-doggy daycare, why not go for the full groom which includes dead hair removal, two shampoos, haircut, a sanitary trim, ear cleansing and trimming, a teeth clean, blow dry and more. Still not convinced? They can even whip up a goat's milk pupachino for your dog.

4. Wags Dog Salon, Preston

The ultimate doggy destination, pups can indulge in a VIP service at Wags Dog Salon, where there's even a bespoke salon blow-dry using fine brushes to suit each dog's specific coat type and size.
