Grooming Competition

Judging Team and Sponsors


International Juding Association (IJA) is proud to offer an IJA Judging Panel at all shows to ensure fair and equal opportunity competitions for all competitors.

With one set of standardized rules and a panel of talented judges — all of whom are past competition groomers and winners, experts in their field and experienced in conducting judges’ makeovers for competitors, hosting educational seminars and training sessions —, competitors are given every chance to “Be All They Can Be” and “Go All The Way with IJA.”

IJA and Nash Academy recognize that events are a success thanks to the generous support and partnership of our industry sponsors. Take a look at all of our sponsors including the sponsors that help award the “All Competitors Are Winners Gift Bags” to ALL competitors, and the IJA “Exceptional Eight” sponsors who are a part of every IJA Sanctioned Rescue Me Dog Grooming Competition in the USA – All For The Love Of DOGS!

Without you it would not be possible, but with you, there is excitement, motivation and friendly competition. Thanks for the support and inspiration!
