Self Service Dog Wash

This past Sunday, we took Maya to the beach for a playdate with Tachi (another Shiba Inu) and DonDon (our relative's Westie). Maya got super dirty running in and out of the water, so it's time for a bath.

We usually bathe Maya at home in our shower room, which usually involves a pup running around desperately and a human getting all wet. Since it's Memorial Day weekend, we decided to give ourselves a treat and took Maya to Pet Food Express to use their self service dog wash.

Overall, it's a pleasant experience for the humans. The raised tub, tie-downs, and aprons made it a lot easier for us. The choice of three different Earthbath's all natural shampoos are really nice too. We ended up getting the "buy 3 get 1 free" deal for $45 instead of just paying the $15 one time fee. It's a bit pricy, so we'll probably still bathe her at home, but it's nice to enjoy this luxury once in a while. 

As for Maya, of course she hated every moment of it...

Note to self: things I should bring with me next time, 1) a worn collar, 2) a Zoom Groom brush, 3) some yummy treats.

(Sorry for the blurry pictures. Cell phone cameras are not meant for this type of chaos.)
