In 2012 the PIAA, in conjunction with the Royal Agricultural Shows, held the first State by State grooming challenge. At each of the Royals attended there was State winner as well as a Best in Show winner.
In the absence of being able to offer a Royal Grooming Competition to every Australian State, the PIAA has opened an invitation for Groomers in WA, NT, TAS and the ACT to also be eligible to enter the 2013 Supreme Royal Groomer Challenge.
Groomers from these States and Territories will be required to nominate themselves and submit information about their grooming abilities. To be eligible for the line up into this prestigious grooming event:- Click here for more information
