New reality show will spiff up difficult dogs
Aside from the Scottie News home page, our most popular landing page last month was Dionete Simoes’ excellent Scottish Terrier grooming video. And once, visitors arrive at the Scottie Terrier and Dog News, they are more likely to click on our archive of grooming stories than any other subject heading.
Well, good news grooming fans, this month marks the start of a brand new reality series all about spiffing up dogs: Groomer has it. The show premieres April 12 on Animal Planet and will run Saturday nights at 9:00. Twelve groomers, professional and amateur, will compete to see who can turn some of the scruffiest dogs around into well behaved beauties.
The host of the show is actor and singer Jai Rodriguez, who made his name on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The judges who get to decide which groomers make the cut include veterinarian Karen Halligan, champion dog handler Xavier Santiago and grooming expert Joey Villani.
Contestants will compete in a grooming salon and live in a Los Angeles loft, dubbed the “Dog House.” The grand prize winner will receive $50,000, a mobile grooming salon from Wag’n Tails Mobile Grooming, and the title “Groomer of the Year.”
If the producers are still shooting they might want to check out that groomers’ chat board where the pros discussed the worst dog breeds in the business. Scotties came in for a lot of criticism so maybe we can expect to a few on Groomer Has It.
Set your Tivos and grab your clippers. As the show’s motto goes, “Some dogs are naturally beautiful, but others need a lot of work!”
