Groomer Has It Recap: "Rags to Riches"

Groomer Has It Recap: "Rags to Riches"

With just a few episodes of Groomer Has It left, I'm anxiously waiting to see which remaining groomer will be crowned top dog. And, of all the shows we've seen so far, this one definitely touched me the most. The final four got straight down to business at the Lange Foundation, a nonprofit animal rescue organization that works with shelters in the LA area. The upside: they were grooming orphans for an upcoming adoption fair – the contestant with the first adopted pup comes out on top for the week. The downside: the groomer whose dog gets adopted last, gets sent home. Eeks!

Because Kathleen won last week's Quick Sniff Challenge she got to pick her dog first, and deliberated between the canine that needed the most help and the other less challenging grooming jobs. She ended up taking an easier dog and Artist, who chose next, picked the toughest pooch, Teddy (seen above), all tangled, matted, and stinky. As he began to shave the dog, his scabby injuries became more noticeable and it seemed impossible that Teddy would get adopted in this state. Learn what happened in this dramatic twist of events when you


Even if he's not your favorite, I was still so proud that Artist picked that dog – as he said, "life is full of second chances" and it seemed quite likely that he would be going home when his dog was adopted last. However, turns out he had to go back home . . . to the doghouse as no one was sent home this week! Yay! What did you think of this heart-wrenching episode? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Down to two. well Artist you get my vote for groomer has it. As a pet groomer we should be more about all dogs and the true talent of a groomer shows when they are put in a situation of a dog like teddy. I believe in groomers Knowing breed standards. However there are a lot of people out there that like a dog for there personality. and not all the hair that they need for breed standards. This is where a groomer should be able to talk to a client and discuss options that work best for them. I am a Kansas groomer and as much as i may love where i live. It can be a allergy living state for some animals. I have been asked for it all and I do not believe that being able to do mimic clips makes you unprofessional. Because the owner is the one that lives with the dog and I want the pets that I groom to be cute, practical and not full of matting. A mimic clip would have really spiced Lil teddy up but artist you have truly have won my heart and that hearts of many more Americans. You truly do have it across the board A adhering love of all animals. I hope you get it. You have the ability I would be proud to have you grooming in my shop. Good Luck Artist to the PETS

i didn't see this week's episode, but Artist annoyed me when he groomed the dog last wk and was man handling him so roughly. but, im sure if i saw this wk's episode, i would have changed my mind about him. animal shelters are dear to my heart and i completely understand how difficult it is to adopt out animals that aren't puppies and kitties. :( let alone a dog that has been taken care of! so i commend Artist and respect his integrity. it would have been upsetting to find out he was sent home, when all he did was follow his heart.
