The Season Finale of "Groomer Has It" on Animal Planet: Who Won?

Groomer Has It: And the Winner Is . . .

In the final episode of Groomer Has It, the remaining two contestants, Jonathan and Artist, had to beautify one dog from each of the seven groups, in addition to these bonus "mutt magic" pooches seen below! Polar Bear, an adoro Westie/Eskimo pup, and Corey, the Dalmatian/Lhasa Apso mix, were the eighth and final dogs groomed as part of the competition. This week's quick tip was to pay attention to the type of dog you're working with and use appropriate techniques for each type of coat:

  • With long haired dogs, avoid vigorous scrubbing as to not tangle their hair and don't forget to use conditioner.
  • For shorter haired dogs, use a rubber brush in circular motions to remove excess undercoat in the wash.

With most of our votes, seems like many of us were rooting for Artist . . . but did he pull through to beat Jonathan, top dog from the very start? Find out in the video clip from the final announcement when you

I've been wondering who won...I didn't see the last few episodes, so I'm so glad to have stumbled upon this post. Thanks! I'm so happy that artist won. Jonathan was probably the best groomer, but Artist was the all around best contestant. He truly loves animals and has a passion for his job. Adorable family, too!

I was SO psyched to see Artist win! I thought he was great...he had a great personality and I think he definitely had the most to gain from winning. I kind of felt that Jonathan was sort of full of himself and he was so negative about everyone else because they weren't "celebrity" dog groomers.

Even though I didn't watch that much of the show, just one episode and pieces of others. Personally, I would of liked someone else to win than Artist. I do not think he has that much experience as a groomer (which is probably what they were looking for in some ways) and he needs work on the business side of grooming.

Yay!! He won my heart in the episode where he chose to groom the puppy-mill mother with the matted fur, even though he knew he would probably lose the challenge. I get choked up just thinking about it!

I'm so excited that Artist won! He had a lot more to gain, and I think he was genuinely a good person. He's always chosen dogs that took the most work, just to prove to himself & the judges that he was capable of doing just as well as these "high-end" groomers. Congrats, Artist! PS - I didn't like how Jonathan didn't say anything congratulatory about Artist, just "I am very, very disappointed", he seemed a bit like a sore loser to me :-/

artist is a sweet guy. he deserves to win because he has a big heart and is talented at grooming. you know he genuinely cares if you saw one episode how he chose the most matted dog to groom during a challenge.

Eventhough I've never seen an episode of this show I am so glad that Artist won.....It takes a special heart to choose the dog that needs the most work in order to be adopted and just for that he deserved to win! Way to go!
