Pet grooming specialists supply vital kit

A Shropshire company has scooped the contract to supply the kit for new prime time television series Pooch Perfect.

Mutneys Professional Pet Care Ltd, based at Stoke Heath, near Market Drayton, has supplied all the equipment for the new BBC dog grooming reality competition series which aims to find Britain’s best dog groomer.

The Mutneys equipment is now being featured in the BBC One show presented by actress Sheridan Smith and featuring 16 leading pet groomers. The eight episode competition will culminate with the crowning of the Top Dog Groomer next month.

Mutneys director and co-owner, Jamie Roberts, explained that the television show producers approached the company last year.

“We’ve been involved in the dog grooming industry for the past 25 years and we know Colin Taylor who is one of the judges. He recommended us to the production company as he knew we were experienced and flexible enough to make whatever they needed.

“As a result we were able to tailor the height adjustable electric tables and the baths to their specification and supply all the driers, trimmers, brushes, shampoos and conditioners. It was a bit of a rush to get it done for the start of filming last summer but it’s great to see all our efforts on show in the series now it has started,” he said.

Jamie added that the dogs’ welfare was top priority for the show with a vet and support team on hand at all times to make sure all the pets’ needs were taken care of.

“The production team was very keen to use only products that had been fully tested and were safe to use. All our shampoos and conditioners are specifically formulated for dogs and have been developed over the past 25 years to comply with all animal welfare regulations.”

He said that Mutneys was delighted to be involved in the programme and all the nine-strong team had been glued to the series so far.

“The great thing about the show is that it is highlighting the skills of professional dog groomers focusing on grooming for pet dogs rather than show dogs. It really shows how much is involved in making your pet look and feel good and how much training professional dog groomers need to have."
