And you thought celebrities had the craziest hair!
At Angela Kumpe's grooming studio in Arkansas, pet owners with a flair for the dramatic can give their dogs almost any look imaginable – looks so wild, they got their own TV show. The new Animal Planet special Clipped!, airing Friday, May 3 at 10 p.m. ET, follows Kumpe and her staff as they work to turn a loyal customer's pup, Buggy, into a bumblebee.
"I can transform dogs into almost anything," Kumpe says. "You name it, I can do it."

For his last Animal Planet show, Dave Salmoni set out in search of dangerous predators. This time around, he's kept his costars decidedly cuter.
"This is Tyson, he's a male lion," the host of Frontier Earth tells PEOPLE. "Tyson's about 5 weeks old."
Showing off the growing cub, whose coat is still dotted with spots, Salmoni explains that the lion will eventually grow to be 550 lbs.

Wayde King and Brett Raymer have worked on their fair share of impressive fish tanks, but a recent addition to their resume introduced them to some very special collaborators.
"It was pretty painless," Raymer says of working with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS, who came out to admire their handiwork at the grand opening of a KISS-themed miniature golf course in Las Vegas, where the duo built a tank bearing the band's logo.
The structure is just one of many the pair, who are also brothers-in-law, construct in the newest season of Tanked, which airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Animal Planet. Later this week, King and Raymer will head to the home of 30 Rock star – and noted animal lover – Tracy Morgan to install a shark tank.

What's the most frightening creature you can think of? Marvin Cruz, a burly, 47-year-old man with tattoos and a shaved head, can't think of anything worse than being in the same room as a puppy.
In fact, his fear of pit bulls is so debilitating that he cries at the sight of a pit bull puppy at a dog park.
Marvin is just one of the subjects of Animal Planet's My Extreme Animal Phobia, a series in which people who fear everything from birds to snakes to moths go through immersion-therapy treatment with psychologist Dr. Robin Zasio in order to overcome their phobias.
