The IPDGA held their annual Dog Grooming Championships on Oct 29th and 30th. It was their 20th anniversary celebration and proved to be their biggest and best Championship to date with so many Irish groomers travelling across the country to compete in the various classes. Among the classes were Novice, Clipped, Scissor, Hand strip, Creative and Asian styling. World renowned groomers and judges Anita Bax and Peter Young were invited to Ireland to judge the competition. Jean competed in the Open Scissor Class with a black poodle and was awarded 4th place. She has won multiple awards at 1st, 2nd and 3rd place at the annual grooming championships prior to 2016 and hope to compete again next year.
