Dog grooming competitions has been around since the 1970s and have become a phenomenon across the United States and the world. Recently a new trend called Creative Grooming has began to catch on. Groomers use chalk, Sprayza Airbrush System, Blo Pens, semi permanent and demi permanent colors to achieve their creations. Although critics claim this is abuse, groomers say that the products are 100% safe and that the dogs enjoy it. So far there has been no human fatalities.
