The British Dog Grooming Championship returns for 2017

The British Dog Grooming Championship is back for another year. The event takes place at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, on 29 October 2017, and is organised by the British Dog Groomers’ Association (BDGA).

The lead sponsor for this year’s event is Pet Dandy – a producer of ‘smart tags’ which help to reunite lost pets with their owners. Pet Dandy’s tags combine affordable and fashionable designs with simple, mass-market technology.

They are proving to be particularly popular in the US, and are just starting out here in the UK. Pet Dandy tags are an impulse buy, so suitable for sale by groomers and walkers.

Each competitor and visitor to this year’s British Dog Grooming Championship will be able to get hold of their own Pet Dandy tag at the show.

Education Zone

One of the key focuses of the British Dog Grooming Championship is learning. The BDGA will be holding a range of seminars and demonstrations at the event over three rooms. The programme will be announced very shortly.

This year will include an ‘Education Zone’, which will feature information on courses run by PIF along with helpful tips and techniques. A representative will be on hand to answer any questions.

The British Dog Grooming Championship plans to provide trade stand opportunities for dozens of businesses. Last year saw a record number of trade stands with many having already booked to come back this year. To book a stand at this year’s event contact

Also returning after such a positive reaction last year is the ‘BDGC Bring and Buy Sale’ where groomers can bring along any spare/duplicate equipment that you wish to sell on the day.
