The pairs move through three different rounds of increasing competition while being judged by pro dog trainer, Travis Brorsen and style judge, Crystal Powell, and one pair is eliminated in each round. The two best teams move on to the final showstopper round to see who wins game and $5,000.00 to donate to the charity of their choice.
