Most pets enjoy water until someone adds soap, just as most people enjoy piñata parties until someone adds a hornet’s nest. Lessen the sting of bath-time for both you and your best friend with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of do-it-yourself pet washing and grooming services at Scrubbers Self-Serve Dog Wash & Grooming in Royal Oak.
Scrubbers Self-Serve Dog Wash & Grooming arms pet owners with professional purging products and equipment, producing silky manes that helped the establishment earn an award for Best Grooming in 2010 on the Detroit A-List. Douse and lather sullied canines and felines in spic-and-span, waist-high tubs during the self-wash, which includes an undercoat rake, house shampoo, washcloth, rubber scrubber, ear cleaner, and towels (regularly $11−$17 depending on pet weight; $8 for verified service- dogs). Specialty products ($2−$5 each) are available to calm itchy, irritated hides and remedy odiferous furs, allowing pets to sneak past each other undetected. Grooming tables in private cubbies ($5) put modest animals at ease and situate the newly bathed for styling with high-velocity blow dryers ($2.50 for 15 minutes). Staff can also trim nails ($10) and talk rebellious terriers out of dyeing their fur panther-pink, or customers can opt to use this Groupon toward professional grooming services. All pets must arrive collared and leashed so they can be anchored like furry kites to stanchions in the grooming areas, and Scrubbers advises animal owners to review its complete list of policies and FAQs prior to arrival.
Scrubbers Self-Serve Dog Wash & Grooming
Scrubbers Self-Serve Dog Wash & Grooming owner Nikki Budaj realized her passion for animal care when she began fostering dogs and cats in college. This pursuit prompted her to seek more in-depth pet health and hygiene advice from veterinarians and other groomers, which she now dispenses from her own grooming center. Her team of careful staffers hand-grooms dogs and cats of all sizes or gives owners free reign of the self-service facilities to beautify their furry companions. Using waist-high bathtubs and hydraulic grooming tables, staff and visitors are able to clean their four-legged companions with a range of supplied and upgradable shampoos, conditioners, and rinses such as Tropiclean and Top Performance. The cleaning-center staff also performs de-shedding services or fur and nail trims to keep animals well manicured, and forced-air drying is available to gently slough off excess water and recreate the feeling of sticking one’s head out of a car window.
