I'd have to say the Quick Sniff Challenge segment was my fave part of the last episode of Groomer Has It. This week the remaining groomers had to create an impromptu, original dog snack for Mark Bodner, owner of Three Dog Bakery, to review. Bowls of essentials (wheat flour and cornmeal) were provided along with mix-ins like apples, carrots, yams, carob, and spices like cinnamon and coconut. In what Jonathan called "Iron Chef, Doggie-style," it was so funny to watch these nonchefs concoct treats for picky pups. Winners were judged on the tastiest – yes, they had to test their creations, too! – and most nutritious treats with Jessica coming out on top for committing to her treat and concept. She was the only one to choose a savory flavor and created a super-cheesy snack she couldn't stop snacking on herself.
In keeping with the "chow" theme, the groomers next had to put their talents to the test against one of the most notoriously tricky breeds to groom, the Chow Chow. Find out who came out as top dog when you read more.
Rebounding from a weak performance last week, Artist came out on top with Jasper close behind. I'm happy with this decision – and hope that it gives the super-funny and quirky Artist needed confidence booster to keep him strong in the weeks ahead (with only six groomers remaining)!
