Mich Dale of the Lynnsto Terriers took BEST IN SHOW with a
West Highland White Terrier at the first Premier Groom competition which took place recently. She beat 47 other competitors
on her way to the title.
The competition which was organised by Groom Team England and Red Cape
with the BIS prize money of £1000 sponsored by WHAL UK, is aimed at giving people a chance to develope their grooming skills
and to encourage more beginners into the competition ring.
It also raises funds for Groom Team England.
Classes were judged by Jitka Krizova, Su Eld-Weaver and Colin Taylor,
and special judges were Alison Rodgers and Peter Ensell who judged the beginners class.
All competitors received a groomer's bag from WHAL. All first place winners
received £50, a plaque and Les Pooch groomer pack, plus a trophy. Second and third places also received prizes.
First in the Hand Strip class was Mich Dale, second was Steve Richardson
with a Minature Schnauzer and third was Louise Tandy with a Wire Fox Terrier.
