The third year of The Pup Cup Dog Grooming Competition was held on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th August 2019. 

It took place at The Judges Training Room - DOGS QUEENSLAND 247 King Ave, Durack QLD 4077


The Pup Cup was moved to QLD as there were no other grooming competitions being held in this state for 2020. 

We were honoured to give our lovely Queenslanders an event. 
Due to the small venue there was unfortunately no expo. However with 49 Competitors and 80 doggie entries travelling from as far as Northern QLD , Southern NSW and Victoria the Pup Cup was a fantastic success!

Appointed judge, internationally recognised Melanie Newman from Melbourne enjoyed her time and was in awe of the talent displayed across the seven styling categories:

Mutt Makeover


Purebred Scissor

Coarse Coats


Model Dog


We congratulate:

 *Runner Up Best in Show Winner  - Joel Wakefield from Queensland. Joel placed with a gorgeous poodle trim.

 *Best in Show winner went to Amy Jonas from Melbourne. Amy placed with a Australian Terrier in breed trim from the Coarse Coat class. 

All competitors showed true passion, love for their dogs and wonderful sportsmanship.

Thank you for all your efforts.
