How does Pooch Perfect work?

It is a competition series that aims to find the UK’s best dog groomer.

With 16 contestants, 4 different heats take place during each episode, to judge who can give the dogs the best hair cuts and makeovers.

The dogs’ transformations will be shown off to owners on the dogwalk, where judges will see how each groomer has taken to the challenge.

Filmed over 8 weeks, there will be two quarter finals, one semi-final and the final – with the winner crowned the official UK’s Top Dog Groomer.

When was Pooch Perfect filmed?

  • August 2020

When Pooch Perfect was first commissioned in February, it was planned for the show to have 10 stylist pairs, but the Covid-19 pandemic changed that.

As reported on dock10’s website, when the lockdown was announced, they could no longer allow the groomer’s assistants to be part of the show as originally planned – and they had to reduce the number of people.

The casting had to be done through Zoom calls – including for the dogs!
