Groomer of the Year - The Masterclass

This exciting new dog grooming event, focusing on quality and professionalism will take place on Sunday 13 October at The Slate, Warwick Conferences.

The Masterclass is an invitational competition, and we have now invited and secured sixteen of the UK’s top groomers to take part.

The competitors are drawn from the Guild of Master Groomers and former Groomer of the Year winners, as well as those who are working towards their Higher Diplomas.

Each competitor has to undertake two grooms (one morning and one afternoon) with each groom scored by the judging panel to determine the winner with the highest total score for both grooms. The winner will be crowned Groomer of the Year and win a £2000 prize.

Limited tickets are available to come and watch this amazing spectacle and celebrate the achivements of the nation's top groomers.

Tickets include a buffet lunch and refereshments, and as it's an educational event where you will be able to watch and learn from the best, visitors will also receive an attendance certificate. There will also be limited shopping opportunnities and a scissor sharpener.
