Pet groomer wins big

Local groomer Annie Williams wins big at northwest grooming show

Annie Williams, a pet groomer from Langley, won first in Poodles Intermediate Division and third in Group, first in Salon Freestyle Intermediate Division and third in All Other Purebreds Intermediate Division at the Northwest Grooming Show dog grooming contest in Tacoma, Washington.

For her wins, Annie took home a free contest entry to Groom Expo in Hershey, Pa, trophies and featured coverage in the grooming industry’s most prestigious magazine, Groomer to Groomer.

Annie won with a Standard Poodle named Emily and owned by Mary Lou Williams, her own Cocker Spaniel named Murphy and a Bichon named Ella that is owned by Kathy Martin.

Annie Williams has been grooming dogs out of her salon in Langley for three years professionally and was thrilled to be one of the many winners at the Northwest Grooming Show. After her recent winnings in February, Williams challenged herself by competing in more classes and taking in dogs with significantly more hair growth. She earned her awards over several of Canada and America’s top ranked professional groomers. She continues to work to achieve her goal of one day representing Canada at the world grooming championships.

The grooming contest was sponsored by Nature’s Specialties, Electric Cleaner and Groomer to Groomer magazine.
