There’s nothing like the bond between a dog and his owner … especially when he can face some of the challenges of ABC’s new Pooch Perfect dog grooming competition (premiering Tuesday March 30th).
As part of the show’s presence with the Winter Television Critics Association, ABC released a promo and behind-the-scenes look at one of its latest offerings. Rebel Wilson moderates the eight-part series that takes 10 of the best dog hairdressers in the country and their assistants through “paw-themed challenges”.
Each week, a team will receive Immunity from Elimination in the Immunity Puppertunity Challenge. The remaining teams face each other in the showdown of the Ultimutt challenge in preparing for transformations. they will show their looks on the dogwalk. The TV personality Lisa Vanderpump, the dog groomer Jorge Bendersky and the veterinarian Dr. Callie Harris will then judge, vote and send a team to the kennel. In the finals, the three best teams will fight for 100,000 US dollars and the “Pooch Perfect” trophy for first place.
“Dogs give you such unconditional love,” says Wilson in the video below and calls it “the relationship people have with their pets … beautiful.” Learn more from her and the judges:
Then in the promo you can watch Wilson greet attendees at Pooch Perfect, “where every dog’s dream can come true”. Take a look at some of the challenges (one of which is turning a dog into another animal) and more while “impressed by the amazing trans formations”:
