Though it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there, a careful grooming and bathing is proper etiquette before any pup sits down for a frankfurter feast. Prepare a pet for a dinner-party debut with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get six self-service dog washes (a $72 value) at City Dog in East Village.
Operating from a convenient downtown urban oasis, City Dog combines a fully stocked pet supply store with an extra-clean bathhouse for keeping dogs happily healthy and sweet smelling. All self-service dog-wash stations are disinfected after every client and offer a selection of canine-friendly shampoos and conditioners that leave fashionable fur coats silky smooth and shining. Six washes allow pooches to be pampered in individual tubs as their prized collection of sand, dirt, and powdered milk is washed away by water that is constantly maintained at a safe 80 degrees. After the cleansing, pay a visit to the drying station to give your dog, doggie, or doggette a grooming, ear-cleansing, and coat polishing.
Founded in 2005 during the restless months of San Diego’s second historic stray-dog uprising, City Dog provides a large, colorful space for cleansing mankind's best friend. The convenient self-service removes the problems of at-home dog washing, including insufficient sink space and cleanup resulting from instinctual wet dog shakes, and puts them in someone else's tub.
