Putting pets into primetime

Britain’s hairiest hounds get a makeover on the hunt for Britain’s best dog groomer

Pooch Perfect is a primetime, competitive, family entertainment series that celebrates the nation’s love of dogs. Hosted by multi- award-winning actress Sheridan Smith OBE, the show searches for the UK’s Best Dog Groomer with contestants competing in a series of ‘pawsome’ challenges to create epic ‘transfurmations’ of adored family pets.

In each episode, the groomers reveal their creations on ‘The Dogwalk’, where the two expert judges deliberate over the week’s canine contenders, and their owners are given the chance to see their newly transformed dogs for the first time. Who will stay and who goes ‘walkies’? Over the course of the heats, quarter finals, semi-final and final, the stylists are gradually eliminated until one claims the title of the nation’s Top Dog Groomer.

As well as breed standard and freestyle makeovers, the show is also packed full of useful information for dog-lovers and owners, delivering top tips on responsible ownership, fun facts about dog breeds and a guide to at-home pooch pampering techniques.
