Dog Wash Rules Tips
Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?

Just your dog(s)! We provide shampoo, conditioner, wash cloth, towels/dryer, latex gloves, brushes, combs and aprons.

Do I need to make an appointment?

Not for a DIY wash, but note that the last bath of the day is at 4 p.m. Please call 671-9274 for a grooming appointment or to schedule a full-service wash.


Can I get nails clipped or other types of grooming services?

Yes. We’ll provide nail clippers if you want to do it yourself. And, we have a complete a la carte menu of “Spaw” services.

What do you do to keep tubs, tools, brushes, etc. clean?

We use special “dog-friendly” cleaners to sanitize the tubs, which we do after every use (the only exception being if you bathe more than one dog during your visit). All the combs, brushes and towels are cleaned every evening. Beyond that, we regularly clean floors and the grooming area to ensure the place looks good, smells great and is a healthy, happy environment.


What if my dog has fleas?

If your dog has fleas, we offer a flea dip that kills fleas on contact.

Do you require proof of vaccination?

We are stringent about proof of vacination for rabies, bordetella and distemper. This is to protect the health of both visiting dogs and people. If you are dropping in for a DIY service, we will ask for and prefer to see the same documentation. However, we understand that not everyone carries this documentation at all times and, in most cases, are lenient for those visitors. Note: Either way, if we see anything that sends up a flag (skin dander, ear mites, etc.), we’ll let you know so you can schedule an appointment with your vet.

How do you accommodate really big and tiny dogs?

Our tubs can easily hold the super-sized dogs – Great Danes, Newfoundlands and the like are no problem! Small dogs are equally accommodated by special “trays” that can be set in the tub. There’s a step to help dogs get into the tub and, if need be, we have a ramp. No lifting required!

Can I bring my own shampoo and conditioner?

Sure! We may even discover a new product that we should offer! However, we are not able to discount the wash for those who bring their own products.
