It’s not just scissors that get a workout – each episode the teams make over their dogs with glitter and pooch-perfect outfits. Strutting their stuff on the dog walk, the top three compete in a sudden death round where one team is eliminated.
Alongside Wilson is her four-legged co-host, Russell the Brussel, a gorgeous Brussels Griffon who is full of personality and attitude! Also joining the crew at Pooch Palace headquarters are international styling experts and judges Amber Lewin and Colin Taylor.
“Dog grooming is so important for the overall health of the dog as not only does it make the dog feel happy, but it keeps the dog healthy and allows the owners to cuddle a clean smelling dog,” Lewin says.
And according to Taylor, he is looking for “kind handling, attention to detail and a style that suits the dog”. And they’ll decide who wins the $100k.
Ones to watch
Davina & Natasha
AGES: 33 & 30
These polar opposite besties and sisters-in-law are ready for a little healthy competition.
“I may not have the master groomer or competition winning status of other contestants, but I believe I have the most creative ideas and I’m willing to put everything on the line to attempt them!” Davina says.
Brad & Annie
AGES: 28 & 34
Taking a very different approach to the art of grooming, these close friends believe that bigger definitely means better.
“My work is about transforming dogs and enhancing their prettiness. I don’t ‘shave off’ - I prefer to make hair look big, fluffy and gorgeous!”
Wendy & Nikki
AGES: 50 & 27
Known in local grooming circles as ‘top dog’, salon owner Wendy and her stepdaughter Nikki are licking their lips for the top prize. “
I’ve been pet styling for 30 years. I’m the only groomer who has won eight Best in Shows with six totally different breeds. People get scared when I walk in the door,” says Wendy.
