This one should make your tail wag. HBO Max released the trailer for the absurd dog grooming competition “Haute Dog” on Tuesday — these pooches will make your pet look like a mangy pooch. (Let’s be honest, it could have been anyway.)
On “Haute Dog”, fame dog groomer (yes, that’s a thing) Jess Rona leads the jury as three dog the groomers compete in two rounds of hairball fur trimming, with the Best-in-Show winner walking away with $10,000 and a first-place rosette. (We had to look up that term: a “rosette” is a “rose-shaped decoration, usually made of ribbon and awarded to the winners of a competition”. Cool.)
Or as the logline puts it: “These doggy makeover wizards compete to turn K-9s into K-10s.”
Matt Rogers hosts the show; Robin Thede is a judge.

The series was inspired by the social media presence of famed dog grooming expert Rona and the “Groomed” coffee table book.
Jax Media’s Tony Hernandez, Brooke Posch and Séamus Murphy-Mitchell will serve as executive producers along with Nicolle Yaron and Rona. Abi McCarthy will serve as showrunner.
“Haute Dog” debuts Thursday, September 24 on HBO Max.
