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
