2Groom can be read as TwoGroom and as ToGroom. TwoGroom is a unique competition in the world of doggrooming.
Two groom is a competion with two groomers and one dog.
Good cooperation, good workmanship, probably a lot of fun and viewing pleasure is the base of this competion.
ToGroom is a competion specially for grooming students and starting groomers. Dare to show what you have learned! It is educational, exercise your speed and learn about grooming competions.
Two groomers (a mix of students, beginners, experienced or professionals) work together on one dog. One left and the other on the right. One person is responsible for the left side, the other for the right. Deliberation and watching on both sides is allowed. It is not allowed to change sides or to to rotate the dog. The end result has to be an even and nicely groomed dog.
One groomer, one dog and one table. A grooming student or starting groomer need to groom a dog to salon standard. A clean and neat dog has to be shown to the judges. It has to be as much as possible to the breed standard. You may ask any question about your work to the judges during the competition but they will only advise you and not help you scissor or strip the dog. It is a educational competition.
If you won a class with TwoGroom in previous years you will be placed one class higher this year. So if you won in the beginners class you now have to compete in the experienced class.
If you want to enter with your teacher-groome unless your teacher-groomer is less than 2 years graduated.
