The double dog, once invoked to up the ante in daunting dares, has come to describe the swimming preferred by people with four legs. Help mutants and canines tread water with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get a self-serve dog wash and grooming (up to a $15 value) at SplashHound USA in West Sacramento, named #1 Best Grooming service by the KCRA A-List three years in a row.
Aiming to keep the friendship between man and man’s best friend as fresh as possible, SplashHound is home to an easy and fun dog-washing system that helps your favorite canine companion stay clean without splashing your home bathroom in eau de dirt. With the self-serve dog wash (a $12–$15 value), owners don’t need appointments to completely cleanse their dirty pooch, and the only clock they’ll be racing is a broken one. Standing in a well-spaced and waist-high line, six large metal washtubs allow walk-in entry for the biggest dogs while leaving plenty of room for complicated pre-bath exercise routines. After donning a waterproof apron, parents purge impurities from their animal children with SplashHound’s special bathing wand, which conquers the thickest of coats with cleansing hypo-aloe and hypo-watermelon shampoos while also administering a satisfying massage to worn-out cat-catching muscles. After the bath, dogs are blow-dried and pampered at the grooming station.
Though SplashHound provides all the basic tools and supplies to get your pup prettified, the expert hound stylists also provide specialty shampoos and conditioners ($1 extra) for dogs with special grooming needs like dandruff, fleas, or dreadlocks. While washing your family’s St. Bernard sextuplets, keep in mind that cramming all six into one bathtub is a good way to destroy that age-old man-dog relationship.
- I've never been to doggie self-serve dog wash, but this was super fun and the best place to take your dog if you've got one that's a shedder extreme. – Maggie C., Yelp
- ...they were nothing but kind and helpful to me. Showing me every step to washing my pet in their special tub and special equipment (a hose that has both water and and soapy water with a switch!) plus a tearless face shampoo to get rid of buildup around the eyes. – Amber H., Yelp
- I love Splash Hound, but better yet my dog "Sky" loves Splash Hound. They are great, very nice and helpful. Very inexpensive, have everything my dog needs. He leaves looking great and the mess is left there and not at home. – Ronald Rogers, CityVoter
