The Grand’s Trainer Selected to Compete at the 2011 Extreme Mutt Makeover

In an effort to promote adoption of homeless animals (some shown above), the Mustang Heritage Foundation is working in conjunction with the Humane Society of North Texas to host The Extreme Mutt Makeover, a unique event that will showcase the talents of dogs who have lived many days or months in shelters across North Texas (and one from California). The Extreme Mutt Makeover will be held in conjunction with the “Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover,” September 16 and 17, 2011 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Selected trainers will be assigned a shelter dog through random draw, train it for eight weeks and return to compete for prizes during the Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover.

The Grand Pet Resort & Salon nominated Rachel to be one of the trainers. We were just notified that she has been selected to participate. On July 23, Rachel will learn who our shelter Mutt is through a random draw. This lucky homeless pooch will live and train at The Grand until the event in September. We will also be tasked to give our Mutt a makeover! During the Extreme Mutt Makeover, Rachel and our dog will have a few minutes to demonstrate basic obedience skills and showcase any special talents. The event culminates with people having the opportunity to adopt these great dogs. We hope our Mutt wins the ultimate prize – A NEW FAMILY!

Check out the video we submitted along with Rachel’s application:
