The Extreme Duo

Friday, March 13, 2020 4:15 pm–7:30 pm Salon 4

Two groomers, one dog, grooming to perfection and entertain your judges as much as possible.

Acceptable Breeds:  Any purebred or mixed breed is allowed in this class, and groomers will work simultaneously on one dog.

Themes are encouraged, creative gifting and bribery towards the judges and crowd is not unlikely, and joyous merriment must be had by all involved! (No outside food or beverage allowed in venue but creative non-consumable gifting and bribery encouraged.)

Contest Time Limit: 1:30 for all dogs

Accessories: May use accessories for tie-ups if they are relevant or necessary to the style or theme of the groom- however they should not detract from the overall impression of the groom itself.

Divisions: Open to all competitors at any level

Contest Time Limit: 1:30

*Special Note: Due to limitations in the contest area, contestants must provide their own tables for competition. There will be no electric available- contestants should plan accordingly by utilizing cordless tools to complete their groom.

Final Judging: The Judges will evaluate the following: Balance, symmetry, uniformity and style of the trim and adherence to the Duo’s chosen theme. The ability of the groomers to create the most pleasing profile for the dog chosen, according to his/her body type, structure and coat. For scissored dogs, the execution of a plush overall appearance without scissor marks, unevenness or unintended protruding coat. For hand stripped and/or carded dogs, proper technique to achieve smooth and natural appearance. Clipper work should be smooth and free of irritation. The difficulty with regard to the amount of coat removed, difficulty of the coat type, texture, quality and quantity. Special considerations will be given for difficulty, combined teamwork, and the ability for the Duo to work cohesively together either in tandem or unison.

There will be three placements in this class.
