Pooch Perfect: BBC release trailer for dog grooming competition
Series one of Pooch Perfect kicked off this evening and presenter Sheridan Smith was joined by the judges; Colin Taylor and Verity Hardcastle as well as resident vet Bolo Eso. The contestants were first tasked with the Breed Makeover and had to tackle a Shih Tzu pet trim. Viewers were a little stunned by the words used to describe the grooming process.
“I want to see a flattering cut, like a tailored suit with symmetry and balance,” Colin asked.
Verity added: “I want to see really cute face shapes and I want to see those beautiful eyes really well.”
Each contestant was given a hydraulic bath for easy access to the dogs, dog friendly products, specialist dryers, brushed and combs to style the coats and clippers and every king of scissor to trim it.
With two and a quarter hours on the clock the race was on to complete the best makeover.

“Trimming with clippers will quickly take the dogs coat down to a uniform length,” Sheridan explained to those watching at home.
“The different clipper comb attachments determine how short it will go.”
The camera then panned to Abbie’s area where she was deciding what to do with her dog.
“I think I’m just going to scissor her all over,” she told the camera. “Rather than put the clippers into it because I think I’m going to mark it if I do.”
“Scissoring the body gives more control to the groomer,” Sheridan continued.
“She’s [the dog] so little and her coat is so thin,” Abbie added.
“It’s more time consuming but if it’s done well, it can add a more polished finish to the trim,” the presenter remarked.
Viewers were left sniggering at the words used to describe the grooming process.

“The way they keep saying scissor is disturbing #poochperfect,” another remarked.
A third added: “I have decided to scissor my dog all over” – bit racy for an 8pm time slot but let’s see where this goes #PoochPerfect.”
“Did she just say scissor her dog? What #poochperfect,” someone else commented.
