PetsAustraliaPets Australia is the peak body representing pet businesses and pet owners nationally. Many of our members are competition standard groomers, who support purebreds by helping owners really appreciate the best of the breeds by keeping them looking beautiful.

Australia has its biggest grooming competition coming up in Sydney in October 2014, to select the team for the WORLD dog grooming championships. Groomers will come from all over Australia for this event.

Competition groomers are currently seeking purebred dogs to groom for this prestigious competition, as it generally takes more than 6 months to properly prepare dogs for competition.
