Bond with your pooch with Dog Wash’s unique self-wash.

June 29, 2010 1:21 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.

Dog Wash, located at 177 MacDougal Street in New York City, offers a wide array of services, including training, boarding, daycare and the ever popular self-wash. The self-wash is a great way to bond with your dog in a fun atmosphere. And for those city dwellers not lucky enough to have a utility sink, the self-wash also helps to keep your bathtub free of unwanted hair and dirt.

For $19 you get access to a tub, pet shampoo, nail clippers, and a blow dryer. For another $15, you get a special flea-and-tick shampoo – not a bad idea during summer months. The self-wash is done in a large room that contains a number of convenient tubs. The atmosphere can get a bit rowdy when the place is full of excitable dogs all jostling to get a gander at each other. So I wouldn’t recommend the self-wash if your dog has any sort of social anxiety.

If the self-wash isn’t for you, then for between $35 and $40 – depending on your dog’s size – you can have a staff member wash and groom your dog for you. The day care and boarding facilities are spartan but cheap. You can board your pooch for $45 a night – about two-thirds the cost of other facilities in the neighborhood – including walks and meals.

Day care costs are $23 for a half day and $29 for a full day. For day care options, you can choose to have your dog in a social setting with other dogs or be cared for in its own private space. Reservations are required for both. Unfortunately, they only allow Manhattan residents to use their boarding and day care facilities.

Training is done by kateperrydogtraining which was named “Best in NY” by New York magazine in 2010. Kate is an experienced, reputable trainer who will train your dog in the comfort and safety of your own home. Two hours with Kate costs $145, and her various packages and discounts can lower that fee to about $125 if you purchase multiple sessions.

Pros: The reasonably priced self-wash option keeps the mess out of your house — and gives you and your dog some quality time in a fun setting. Day care and boarding options are cheap, although spartan.

Cons: The rowdy atmosphere of the washroom, especially when crowded, may not be a good fit for dogs with social anxiety.
