FIRST TIME IN? Please sign the Customer Card which says your dog is current on all vaccinationsand this can be verified by your vet, who can be called if requested. (We spot check.) Now you are in the file for next time!
Next, you take a tub in the Tub Room and get comfy. There are nine (9) shampoos to choose from which are INCLUDED in the Base Price. One is not included, that's the flea shampoo. (It's priced by how bad the fleas are, so $5 to $20, plus tax.) All the tools are provided, brushes, ear cleaner etc. Endless towels and a professional-style power hand dryer. Base Prices are decided by your dog's weight. Yes, there is a scale. Small: $10 Medium: $15 Large: $20 Extra Large: $25
Often asked is the question, "Is my dog a Small? Medium or Large or Extra Large?" 1# up to 25#...small 26# up to 59#...med 60# up to 89#...lg 90# up to 200#...Extra lg
The answer is, Ann must "ok" or "reject" your personal shampoo, then a note is made to your card for Next Time, that she ok'ed it last time. If the label says "100% Bio-degradable" your shampoo will pass. If there is no info on it being Bio-degradable, or if it says "Ani-Bacterial" or "anti-" something, then it's going to be rejected, sorry. The exception to this is if your vet has prescribed this shampoo and a vet sticker is on the bottle. Ann will make this decision out of the need to protect the septic system allowing her to stay in business.
UPGRADE Shampoo PACKAGES There are also Upgrade Packages for extra
services... they start at $5.
B-Gone (Come in ahead-- while your dog waits in the car--to sign in and get set up.) ...(Yes, this one costs more...$5 to $20 more, plus WA tax.)
Super-DUPER Stinky Dog for extra smell control (ahem.)... (no extra charge for "nominal stink"; usually not for rolling in "something" (Bear Poo, Dead Fish, etc) --- but...Actual skunk or Extreme Stink? yes, there is an added fee! $5-20$ plus WA tax.)(Why? because Ann may have to close the shop for clean up, that's why.)
FYI: Tax is charged for Shampoo Up-grades, but not for the Base Price or most other Extra Services. Hey, I'm just following the taxman's orders!
