Barkleigh Productions’ GroomerTV Is Honored with Prestigious Dog Grooming Industry Award

GroomerTV Wins Industry Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Grooming Industry

LAS VEGAS, NV – (For Immediate Release) – The Oscars of competitive dog grooming, the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards, were held recently at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, with members of the industry gathering to honor the best and the brightest groomers, contest judges and pet salons of the year. Among the award recipients was Barkleigh Productions’ GroomerTV, which was presented with the David G. Salzberg Award for outstanding contributions to the grooming industry.

Barkleigh Productions was founded in 1979 to fill an educational void in the dog grooming industry. For 35 years the company has expanded from a simple newsletter for grooming clients, to an organization creating news, magazines, and quality industry events for groomers and clients alike. True to its origins, Barkleigh launched GroomerTV, a live Ustream of grooming competitions throughout the USA. The online network has been credited as a contributor in increasing the grooming trade show turnout by allowing groomers to truly see what happens at the events. It has also established itself as an educational tool for new groomers unable to study with a master groomer and a simple way for professionals to keep up with the industry.

“The David G. Salzberg Award is presented annually to an organization that contributes the most to the advancement of the grooming industry. GroomerTV has brought trade shows and grooming education into the homes and lives of professional groomers and dog lovers across the country – advancing the industry on a deeper, more personal and more widespread level than even imagined. Their contributions make Barkleigh Productions’ GroomerTV the perfect candidate for this award,” said Barbara Denzer, Vice President of Cardinal Pet Care, a major manufacturer of pet products and sponsor of the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards. “We are honored to present the David G. Salzberg Award to GroomerTV for their contributions to the grooming industry as a whole.”

The Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards were founded in 1988 by Cardinal Pet Care President and CEO Tony de Vos and Shirlee Kalstone, then owner of the International Intergroom trade show for competitive grooming, for the purpose of establishing standards of grooming excellence and recognizing professional skills in the competitive grooming industry. Since the beginning, the Cardinal Crystal Grooming Achievement Awards have been considered one of the highest honors in the pet grooming industry, annually presenting awards for outstanding achievement in several different grooming categories.
