The 2012 Pet Stylists Super Show is coming to the Knoxville Convention Center on May 31, and Young-Williams Animal Center will be the beneficiary.

The show is put on by Pet Stylists of Tennessee Inc., a non-profit organization for professional pet groomers founded here in Knoxville in 2006. Their mission is to promote high standards of integrity and professionalism in grooming skills, business ethics, and safety for both groomers and pets. They place a high emphasis on continuing education, and that’s where the Super Show comes in.

The Pet Stylists Super Show will bring together professional groomers from across the state and as far away as Miami, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania to network with fellow groomers, learn the latest information and techniques on pet grooming and show off their skills through competitive grooming contests.

Entrants in the show will stay busy all weekend. There will be grooming competitions in several categories including sporting breeds, terriers, and poodles. There will even be cat grooming competitions. Sunday morning the always popular creative styling competition will be held. This is where stylists get creative with unusual cuts and colors – always interesting. Professionals from beginning groomers to experts in the field will have a chance to win some great prizes like cash, rosettes and trophies. One lucky winner will get their hotel stay covered for the whole weekend, so the competition will be fierce!

In addition to the grooming competitions, the event includes informational seminars where groomers can learn new techniques from professional pet stylists with topics including “No More Problem Coats” and “The Art of Pet Styling.” And groomers appreciate special show pricing on the latest equipment and supplies from vendors on site.

The public is invited to attend the Super Show and watch as these exceptional groomers clip and style all sorts of pets. The cost is $10 per day, $25 for the entire weekend. Proceeds go to Young-Williams Animal Center.

You are especially encouraged to come out on Sunday for the Rescue Rodeo where groomers draw numbers to see which adoptable pet from Young-Williams Animal Center they will get to groom. Half of the entrance fee paid by the groomers for this competition also goes directly to Young-Williams. And who knows, perhaps you will find a freshly groomed pet you will just have to adopt!
