We Love These Creative Cuts From the Grooming Competition at SuperZoo

Groomers let their imagination run wild, snipping the likes of Snow White, Hello Kitty, and Luigi into coats at the annual pet industry convention.

If you follow dog-centric pages on social media, you’ve likely seen posts this week from SuperZoo, happening now in Las Vegas. The annual convention for pet retailers and other industry folks — Dogster and Catster are there! — features a wide variety of exhibitor booths, seminars, and grooming competitions.

Our favorite competition category is the one that lets groomers get creative with their cuts, going above and beyond the breed standard. Why do we like it best? These photos by Dave Fry, owner and chairman of Dogster parent company Lumina Media, and his wife, Meidee Goh, answer that question perfectly.

Meet Snow White and three of her dwarves.

This Poodle asks, is this my best side?

We have no clue what this cut is meant to represent. Anyone?

Butterflies are the best, says this Poodle.

Another head-scratcher, though it, too, may involve a fairy tale.

And the winner is Lyin in the Sun! That’s quite the impressive cut.
