Grooming Competition

If you can snip, clip, bathe, brush and dry, saddle up and pack your grooming gear for the Pittsburgh Pet Expo.

The International Judges Association for Dog Grooming Competition is back to do it again in 2017. In this our fourth year, the competitions and fun continue to grow!

The Rescue Me Rodeo Round Up Grooming Competition Championship competition highlights the talents of groomers and brings attention to rescued dogs who need homes. Groomers do their magic to transform dogs who are then available for adoption.

Nash Academy is proud to return as host and sponsor of the IJA-sanctioned Rescue Me Dog grooming and creative competitions.
