Penny Dugan Named 2010 Groomer of the Year
NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Penny Dugan of Boffell, Washington will be recognized on February 12, 2011 as the 2010 Groomer of the Year by Laube at the 56th Annual PurinaÃ‚® Pro PlanÃ‚® Show Dogs of the YearÃ‚® Awards, presented by Dogs In ReviewÃ‚®, in New York City.
Dugan has groomed for Seattle-based professional handler Timothy Brazier for many years, with the duo racking up numerous accomplishments in the show ring. A breeder of Standard and Miniature Poodles, Dugan bred the Poodle Club of America’s 2000 National Specialty winner and has bred multiple Best in Show winners. She says she favors Poodles, because “you have to be very artistic” to groom the breed. A colleague agrees, “Penny has never failed to put each hair in perfect order. The dogs walk into the ring looking like a masterpiece.”
The Groomer of the Year Award recognizes an extraordinary individual who has set a high standard of outstanding achievements in the grooming profession. As the leader in the professional grooming industry, Laube is proud to share a passion and enthusiasm for dogs.
In addition to Dugan’s award, the Show Dogs of the Year dinner will recognize the seven show dogs with the greatest number of Group Firsts in 2010, most of whom are going on to compete at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show next week. Along with those dogs, there will be Special Industry Awards honoring individuals whose dedication to the dog world is incomparable.
These individuals will be honored for heightening public awareness of canine well-being and to elevating respect for the industry at large. Awards include Groomer of the Year, Veterinarian of the Year, Shelter of the Year and Trainer of the Year.
