From the shaggiest pooch to the best in show - some dogs are naturally beautiful, but others need a lot of work!
Groomer Has It is a quirky new reality competition that has its competitors primping and preening from head to tail.
Hosted by Jai Rodriguez of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Groomer Has It features 12 of America's best dog groomers as they shampoo, shave and shear their way through a series of challenges to determine the title of Groomer of the Year.
The lucky winner will also receive a cash prize of $50,000 and a mobile grooming salon that could jump-start the groomer's career and change their lives.
These self-proclaimed best groomers will live together in a swanky Los Angeles loft - the Dog House - work elbow-to-elbow in one salon and face grooming challenges in an attempt to style their way to the top.
Each episode, an outspoken panel of judges including esteemed veterinarian Dr. Karen Halligan, champion dog handler Xavier Santiago and leading U.S. grooming expert Joey Villani, will decide the fate of these styling guru's in the most unique grooming competition ever.
