“My childhood was full of weekend adventures at dog shows all around Australia and my family had a business selling pet products out of a caravan - such as leads, treats and the best dog styling equipment available,” she said.
“This show with Seven is going to be a ton of fun and showcase some amazing dogs and dog lovers. Technically I’m allergic to dogs though…so hopefully they can edit around my sneezing!”
Seven’s Director of Network Programming, Angus Ross, has commented on the new production: “Rebel has a fantastic energy, great timing, the sharpest wit and like many Australians, she loves dogs. With her passion, humour and insight, she’s a great host for this entertaining and heart-warming series.”
38% of households in Australia own dogs, so we are pretty accustomed to our four-legged furry friends getting the best of the best from their owners. From winter coats to car seats, doggy daycare to dietary needs, dog owners are prioritising their pet’s care, comfort and wellbeing.
As a result, the dog styling industry is booming, and man’s best friend has never been so well pampered.
The series will feature ten professional dog stylists from around the country competing in a series of themed challenges revealing epic transformations of beloved pets.
The winner – who will take home $100,000 in prize money - will be determined by a panel of the industry’s top judges who will critique the overall styling.
Pooch Perfect is a Seven Studios production for Channel Seven and will premiere Thursday, 27th of February.
