Doggy Styling: New Channel 4 doc follows world of extreme creative dog styling
The doc follows a British dog groomer as she tries to make it big in the US
From the channel that brought us the much-talked about Dogging Tales this year, Channel 4 returns with one-off documentary Doggy Styling.
But all is not what you might think. Behind the suggestive title, the programme explores the benign but equally bizarre world of extreme creative dog grooming.

The documentary follows Su Eld-Weaver, a British dog grooming champion who wants to make it big in the extreme grooming world, which can only mean one thing: moving to the US.
Across America, poodles are being crimped, pimped and dyed to compete in the multi-million dollar ‘sport’, and Su wants a piece of the action with her dog Dobby.
She hopes she can win at Hershey, Pennsylania- the world’s biggest extreme creative dog grooming competition- where owners claim their dogs are the “Picassos and Monets of the industry”.
For the first time in history, could a British dog triumph at Hershey? And could Dobby become the first non-American poodle ever to grace the cover of the industry's prestigious Groomer to Groomer magazine?
Doggy Styling airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 4.
