Default Self Serve Doggy Bath

Hello all, I'm new to this forum and curious about dog washes. I myself have never been to one with Riley, my 2 yr old lab/dalmation mix, but my friend Jimmy says he goes all the time with his coley(sp?). Have any of you ever been? How much do they cost? What do you think about them?

Jeff

The only thing I know about washing a dog is that I do it in the bathtub, there is a shower stall at the local shelter or the groomers will do it. I don't know what a dog wash is.

Sorry

There's a post in the Dog Sites about one and it may be in the classifieds as well. It looks like a great idea. Charley and I have even kicked the idea around of putting one at the far end of his warehouse where there's a separate entrance.

Is that the box thing you put them in? I would think they are really expensive but I might be thinking about something else.
My friend worked at a vets office that did it and she said some dogs were good in it but some where way to scared. I think there were problems with the drying part too but I don't know if that was her i heard that from or if it was from another forum. I always do the grooming and washing myself. Heard too many horror stories about groomers.

Welcome, Jeffsputer! Yes! I have done the doggy wash thing. It was called "My Dirty Paws" and cost 12 bucks. They had private stalls with big huge sink-like tubs and non-skid ramps or stairs going up for your dog to get in. Once in, you can cross tie them and they're at eye level. The sprayer was nice with warm water. And they supplied all the soaps, towels, brushes, even a big hose blow-dryer thing! It was great, but has since gone out of business

You might like these then, Joce, since all they supply is the place and everything you need to do it yourself - no groomers!

Good LORD! I've never heard of such a thing! You mean it's like a big dishwasher with the dog's head sticking out? That's terrible!

I don't think that's the way they work. Here's the link to the thread about them here on Chazhound: http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533
