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

The World Pet Association has announced the winners of Groomer Supershow, a collection of grooming competitions hosted at 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.

“Grooming is such an important part of the pet industry and we look forward each year to giving the industry’s top professionals a chance to showcase their talent,” said Doug Pointdexter, WPA president.
