Pampered Pooch

Sometimes being stuck in traffic pays off. It gives you a great photo opportunity! I was stuck behind this van on the one-way system around town on Monday and it got me thinking. What on earth is a dog Hydro Bath?! What is Turbo Drying?! Why do fleas need a rinse?! Why does it need to be a 'heated mobile dog grooming parlour'?! Do they have a radiator in there?! All these questions remain unanswered, unless I get a dog and give Dial-A-Dog-Wash a call! Has anyone out there used one of these mobile dog washers? For their dog, obviously.

i wonder, does the dog have to enter the van for hydro fulfillment? great find.

wow! the dog sure has his day!

brian said...

i've seen one of these before, but never used one! it's a good idea =)

Rambling Round said...

Great idea! If they deliver at-doghouse service, the owner doesn't have to haul the dog in to the groomer.

The idea seems barking, and it certainly gives you a paws for thought. Quite a good little tail, but in these hard times, I wonder if they are hounded for business!

@Gail's Man: groooooaaaaan!!

I'm surprised this sort of thing is in business, it doesn't look like a very credit crunch-proof profession! You're right though - far more questions than answers!

The vans I usually get stuck behind are the ones with stray and misplaced apostrophes, which winds me up worse than normal road rage!

Doggone Gail's man for getting in there first with the barking pun. Pmpered pooches, blin, bling for birds does Cheltenham have the affluent scoiety or what. What next Mobile "hare" dressers for rabbits.

I almost said that I've never seen anything like this before and certainly not here - but then I remembered a similar one posted on the other NZ Nelson DP (not Ben & Meg's - another now defunct). Must be some pampered pooches in Cheltenham - I wonder if Jilly of Riviera Dogs (Menton & Monte Carlo DPs) has seen this.

I'd love to have that kind of service around here! Sigh. I'm getting old — dog grooming can be back-breaking for me nowadays.

Knoxville Girl said...

Very amusing, nothing like that in Knoxvegas. Turbo drying sounds painful.

Lori said...

That shot was a great find! Those are lucky dogs to get the full treatment like that. They must be beautiful when they are done!

Bibi said...

Bibi gets her own personal bath care here at home! But it would be fun, albeit probably expensive, to try one of these. And thanks for visiting my blog! I think the two dogs I posted would love a visit.

That Turbo Drying sounds ominous!

D.C. Confidential said...

Someone not far from me has a similar business. All I can say is, those who uses their services have very pampered pooches.

I'm with DL: Turbo Drying sounds terrifying.

Well Paris was in town recently and I'm sure Tinkerbell needed these services at least 3x a day.
