Bathing and Grooming

Are you tired of wrestling with your dog to get them into your bathtub? Or dealing with the guilt of just hosing them down in the yard? We can’t say enough about how much we LOVE self-service bathing, now available at Dogs At Play. No appointment necessary, just walk on in for a do-it-yourself dog wash. Many of our clients like to come by after a swim around Masonboro Island or a romp around Hugh McRae Park. And some of our self-washers, well let’s face it, won’t fit in the shower at home; they just need a little extra room.

Our one-size-fits-almost-all self-serve wash tub has an easy access ramp to make it comfortable for both you and your pet. We have a collection of doggie shampoos and conditioners for all types of skin and fur; a dryer, plenty of towels, ear cleaner, nail clippers, and cologne to make this the most fun bath ever. We also have waterproof aprons for the parents to wear so you can stay nice and dry! Best of all, you leave the mess here and we clean up after you!

Small (1-20 lbs) $14
