THESE hairy hounds were quick to become crop dogs when restrictions eased this week.
Those getting a much-needed trim included cockapoo Lola, labradoodle Mango and poochon Fern.

Groomer Scott Learmouth, owner of Bone Idol in Brighton, said: “It’s really satisfying to see the transformations from drab to fabulous once more.”
He added: “Our customers and their dogs love coming to the salon.
“We love to see them. So the lockdown once again has been really hard for everyone.
“On the first day of opening, and for the foreseeable future we have a packed schedule.”
The business also runs the Bone Idol Academy which trains would-be dog groomers and has seen a giant surge in applications since the start of the pandemic.

Scott said: “Dog grooming is a flexible occupation.
“It’s also really fun and creative, and people who have been stuck in lockdown home working in jobs they don’t like are coming to dog grooming and starting their dream career.
“The pandemic has been a real time for reflection for many people.”
