“Pooch Perfect”: different but interesting


Hannah Chelton, Reporter

Pooch Perfect is a newer TV show that aired on February 27, 2020 on the ABC network. The show is hosted by Rebel Wilson, additionally Lisa Vanderpump, Jorge Bendersky, and Dr. Callie Harris are the judges. The show consists of contestants that are the best pet groomers in the U.S. that battle one another in efforts to earn a cash prize, and the one and only coveted “Pooch Perfect” trophy. There is a series of rounds that the contestants compete in. At the end of the round, the animals are judged, and the lowest ranking team is eliminated.

Pet groomers are required to think outside the box when given tasks to complete. There is a certain theme that is given to the group each round, and it is up to the contestants on how they bring that creation to life on the dog assigned to them. In order to bring their creation to fruition, they can paint, cut, dye, and style the dog to their preference. The only requirement is that they execute the task that was assigned to them. For example, one challenge given to contestants was Halloween-themed. From there the competitors are given a certain amount of time to create a masterpiece on their dog.

Overall, “Pooch Perfect” is enjoyable to watch. It is a different type of show, but the diversity in it makes the show interesting. The talent that the groomers have shine through their finished product to demonstrate their creativity. Everyone has different interpretations on topics, so it is neat to see the how each individual carries out the task. I would rate this show a 3.5 stars out of 5.
