Dog Wash Prices
How our pricing structure works
Tub usage fees are charged by the size, breed and/or coat type of your dog, to make the prices appropriate to the amount of water, shampoo and tub time needed by each customer. Because we charge by the type of dog, there is no time limit..... so please take your time and enjoy bonding with Bowser during his bath. Following are the general pricing guidelines. The actual amount charged for your dog(s) may vary, depending on his size, coat type and coat length/condition. However, once we set a price for your dog, and have it on file, it will NEVER change, even if our prices goes up in the future! **

A New Leash on Life (Email from a fellow independent retailer in Colorado): "My customer picked up her leash yesterday and they were thrilled! Daniel had his mom wrap the handle on his wheelchair and he took off down the sidewalk with Grizzly, his dog. It was just precious! The other cool thing that I didn't count on is that Daniel can wrap the handle on his arm. He can't grasp with his hands but can still hold the leash himself by sliding it down his arm. It absolutely made my day to be able to help them get the perfect leash. I couldn't have done it without you! Thanks!!"
