World Pet Association Announces Winners of 2011 Groomer SuperShow Hosted at SuperZoo

Every Year, the World Pet Association hosts grooming contests at SuperZoo, a pet industry trade show. The World Pet Association is pleased to announce the winning groomers of the 2011 SuperZoo Groomer SuperShow.

  • (1888PressRelease) September 28, 2011 - SuperZoo, one of the largest national shows for pet retailers. More than $45,000 in prizing was awarded to winners in 12 categories.

    Jackie Boulton won the Groomer Super Jack Pot and took home the top prize of $10,000. Top honors were also given to Veronica Frosch who won $2,000 for "Best Pet Stylist in Show" and $1,500 to Olga Zabelinskaya who won "Best All-Around Pet Stylist in Show."

    In addition to testing the skills of the industry's top groomers, SuperZoo supports the local community in Las Vegas by hosting Rescue Rodeo, a competition that challenges groomers to makeover rescue dogs from local shelters. Prize money is awarded to the top three groomers and the shelters that house the winning dogs receive a cash donation.
