We have a doggy day care and dog wash in our area. I have taken Susie there quite a few times. It is $15.00 and they supply all the soap, conditioner etc. They have a ramp up to a raised tub and after they are washed and rinsed, they have another ramp on the other side of the room, up to a grooming table. With a seventy pound dog it sure saves the back. They have a high velocity dryer that really blows all that loose hair out when they start to shed. I would not want to try and clean up all the mess in my own home. Susie only sheds twice a year but when she does, it is wall to wall hair. Well worth the money.
