Time To Make The…Bath

September 16 | 25 Comments

Me Cleaning Up For A DateThis sounds better than bathing at home.

No more sore backs, or wet dogs — half soaped up — running through the house.

Mark Narduzzi of Livonia takes his three dogs to the self-serve dog washing stations at Dunk N Dogs in Livonia.

“At home, I get as much of a bath as she does,” said Narduzzi, 42, while rinsing Molly, a 4-year-old black Lab-greyhound mix.

At the dog wash, he said, “the facilities are much easier to manage, instead of hunching over into the tub, the shower door getting in the way. And Molly likes to be around other dogs or go to any event that involves a car ride. Seeing other familiar faces here also helps.”

Dunk N Dogs was hatched by Sharon Lutz Robinet, a self-taught dog and cat behaviorist, certified obedience trainer and occasional groomer. Because of medical issues, she needed to cut back on the physical demands of grooming and came up with the idea to shift business direction while still working with animals.

Dunk N Dogs’ main service provides pet owners the opportunity to wash and dry their dogs in a controlled environment, inside standard bathroom tubs that are raised on platforms to keep the owner from bending over, complete with sprayers and a special hookup to keep the dog in place. The price per wash ranges between $8 and $20, depending on the weight of the dog. No-heat blow-drying is also available to avoid wet fur matting, plus owners can rent clippers to trim their dogs’ fur.

Persoanlly, I prefer the donut and coffee special at Dunkin’ Donuts over the Super Sudsy special at Dunk N Dogs any day.

    Hi Bo, Sorry to break it to you…I'm not a dog but I am a dog owner.  Just wanted to say I enjoy your wit and insight.  Underdog has nothing on you.  You really should consider writing a book.  You have quite a talent. Oh yes, I almost forgot…hate to break it to you but Dunk N Dogs is the way to go.  Get used to it.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of
    your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    The days of peeling your vegetables with a knife have been over since we have been blessed with the
    peeler. People who love to cook prefer to have gadgets that will make your life easier in the kitchen. With it,
    I just insert the probe, program the device to the temperature that I want, and
    continue on with whatever I have going on elsewhere.
