The Abstract Runway Design Challenge is to underscore the beauty of a “simple abstract design”, beautifully sculpted with minimal color and accessories.  We are looking for stunning quality and artistry which would be appropriate for a client’s dog or cat and can be reproduced in the salon in one day.

Entries used for this class must be groomed prior to competition check-in.

Competitors will check in at the Grooming Stage at 5:00 pm.

Any purebred or mixed breed dog or cat may be used.

Competitors must be ready for prejudging and the runway walk.

Competitors’ attire should not detract from or overpower the groom; it can be complementary or an extension of the design.

Before each presentation, the emcee will briefly interview the competitors for biographical information and design explanation.

Runway music will be provided by the show producer.

If using an entry from a previous class, the Competitor must make a distinguishable difference in the design.

Open Division – Entry is open to ALL competitors

Prize Money:

1st Place – $300
