Dogs who weren’t there to join the competition were likely being groomed by their stylists, as if they were in a salon. There were multiple grooming stations around the arena, with many of the Dogs — particularly the Long-coat Chihuahuas, Poodles, and Bichon Frises — being combed, hair-dried, and cut to perfection. NOT-SO-SECRET FACT Most of the participants have handlers who prep the Dogs. They train and nurture the Dogs so that the canines arrive in their best form.
