Barking mad dog lovers descended on southern Sweden for the first ever Swedish International Grooming Competition (Swedgroom). Check out some of the best shots of the show, which drew a strong crowd in Malmö.
Among the trophies up for grabs at Swedgroom were gongs for best poodle, spaniel and setter - and the highly coveted, best Swedish groomer.
Not only were prizes handed out but there were a number of educational grooming conferences and seminars featuring some of Sweden's top groomers and breeders.
It's the first time an international dog grooming event has been held on Swedish shores, which was held in Stadionmässan in Malmö.
