I adopted my dog last summer, when it was easy to use a garden hose in the backyard to clean him off. Then the cold temperatures settled in. After an attempt at bathing him in my bathtub, and spending an hour cleaning all the dog hair off the walls and tub, I swore to never go that route again. Maybe a smaller dog would have been more manageable, but my 55-lb boy was not amused and made one hell of a mess.
So I took a look at all of the other options around the Hill. I’m focusing just on self-serve dog washes since I’d rather save a few bucks to do it myself. If you have any preferences on full grooming services on the Hill, please feel free to leave it in the comments!
