A disturbing new dog grooming trend has seen people putting glitter on their pooches’ testicles.
Photos of dogs with decorated private parts are being shared on social media.
Owners have stressed that it’s edible glitter which is applied using corn syrup, so it’s completely safe.
They wrote: “I have seen so many things in this career. Very few things surprise me.
“Yet here I sit looking at glitter dog balls.
“Done using corn syrup and edible glitter. Those are some sweet balls.”
And they are not the only ones to share photos of dogs with the new accessory.
Royal Paws Pet Salon in North Carolina shared photos on social media, writing: “I just thought I would let everybody know the latest creative grooming trend is glitter balls!
