Introducing our wonderful 2020 Pup Cup Judge - Annett Whitelum!
Annett is a passionate pet stylist and the owner of Turners & Pooch Pet Salon est. 2003.
She is a self taught groomer and has travelled Australia and the USA to attend seminars hosted by the best dog groomers from around the world.
In 2006 she became one of Australia’s first Internationally Certified Master Groomers and then in 2011 one of Australia’s first Certified Feline Master Groomers.
Annett started competing in dog grooming competitions in 2004 and is a multi-award winning pet stylist.
Many wins and placings made it possible for Annett to be selected to represent Australia at 4 consecutive World Grooming Championships during 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015 and team captain in 2017.
Now retired from competitive grooming, Annett thoroughly enjoys judging grooming competitions and is an active member within the grooming industry.
From Jazz’s perspective:
Annett is one of the most humble, kind and caring people I have met on the grooming circuit.
At one competition I was stacking a dog incorrectly for photos and out of all the people there, it was Annett that came forward and showed me how. As little as that gesture was at the time; it meant a lot, as she didn’t make me feel silly.
I have watched her interact with others at competitions and she cheers them on and is very supportive of newcomers.
With Annett’s expertise, knowledge and kind heart, she will be an amazing asset to our 2020 Pup Cup
