Model dogs must still be recognisable as a dog shape, or coming from a dog shape. You may choose to turn it into any breed with dying the coat and trimming, or creatively turn it into something colourful to your own imagination.
You must complete your dog at home before the competition. You have 8.30-9am the Saturday 16th November to set up and add any finishing pieces to your dog. Model dogs may be presented on a 50cm table cloth and any props must fit within this space with your business cards (optional). All ornaments need to be attached securely in case your dog is touched by the public (we will separate from the public where possible).
You must pick up your model dog on the completion of judging the 17th November (3.30pm). DGAWA are not held responsible for dogs not collected.
- Model dogs will be judged on:
- Originality and creativity of your design and theme.
- Quality of technique
- Sharpness and precision of clipper and scissoring finish.
- Blending of colours.
- Degree of difficulty of the trim, style and professionalism
- There will be a public choice prize and judges prize.
