We talked about just washing him in one of our bathrooms, but we decided to give a self-serve dog wash we had heard about a try instead.
We had drove by it quite a number of times, but didn’t know exactly what it was. We visited the website and learned that for $13.95 we could wash Tebow ourselves and use the bathtub, towels, shampoo and brushes offered by the store. It may seem a little steep for washing your dog, especially when we plan to go every few weeks and we could just wash him for free in our own bathroom. However, when you estimate the time of cleaning your own tub, bathroom, towels and the expense for shampoo, brushes, etc, the price starts to look very reasonable! So we loaded up the car and went to give it a try.
The poor little guy was really nervous about his first time, shaking and crying. As far as Tim and I know, this was the only time he had ever been in water and he definitely didn’t know what to make of it! We picked our shampoo from the options and used the Blueberry Face Wash offered, which was tearless and edible.The neck tie was kind of scary for me at first, but it worked out as a great way to hold him in the tub and was actually just like a collar and leash.
I would say that my one major complaint was that we couldn’t adjust the pressure of the hose or the dryer. It may have been a little too much pressure for our little guy, and he was definitely scared of the dryer noise, but overall it worked out just fine!
Tebow’s first bath was a success and I am looking forward to all of his firsts. Friday was his first leashed walk and he did pretty good! He doesn’t quite understand how to be led, and enjoys zig-zagging in and out of your legs, but he will learn over time. He is hilarious though and absolutely cracks us up! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
