What You'll Get
Today's deal saves you the tedium of bathing your barking beauty at home: $15 gets you $30 worth of self-service dog washing at Dirty Dog, the do-it-yourself canine bathhouse that has four locations in Austin.
The concept is simple: Dirty Dog provides a raised, industrial sink with spray hose, tearless shampoo, conditioner, ear wash, hair dryers, nail clippers, grooming tables; you provide the dirty pup and a post-wash skateboard. Show up with your dingy dachshund, strap on a waterproof apron, and give him the comfort of being washed by his most trusted compatriot. Dirty Dog even provides washing instructions and stairs to help larger canines into the tub.
Dirty Dogs' bathing rates differ by weight and additional services. Dogs that weigh less than 30 pounds bathe for $13, 31- to 70-pound dogs bathe for $15, and more than 70-pound pooches for $17. Specialty shampoos, such as oatmeal, whitening, and flea and tick, can be purchased for an additional $2.25. A dog wash and hair clipper rental costs $25. Since most dogs rack up about a $15 bill at Dirty Dogs, you can apply the balance of this Groupon toward the next washing. Grab this deal and give your pet a professional, yet personal washing that's both professional and personal, while including washing.
