Hollywood Feed Grooming & Bathing
At select Hollywood Feed locations, we have on-staff groomers who offer a variety of services from a simple bathe and brush to an all over cut and style. Grooming appointments are made by phone or in person at one of our grooming locations.
Some locations have self-service dog wash stations that are stocked with everything you need to bathe your pup without an appointment. Dog washes close an hour prior to the store to allow us to clean and sanitize the bath.
Grooming Your Dog Is Important
Brushing and combing your dog helps keep their skin healthy and fur matt free. The fact is, bathing helps maintain your dog's skin and coat and keep them parasite free. Bathing a small dog isn't always quite the chore that bathing a large dog can be. At Hollywood Feed, our groomers groom dogs of all sizes, and we keep all dogs in mind with our Self-Serve Dog Wash Stations. Whether 15 or 120 lbs., the tub door and stairs or ramp make it easier to load your dog in the bathtub.
Our Self-Serve Dog Wash Is Only $13.99
We provide everything you need including dog shampoo, dog conditioner, towels, grooming brushes, and even blow dryers. And it gets even better...that mess of dog hair and dirt that's left? Don't worry about it! We'll take care of all of that for you! Ask your local store about our self-wash packs where you can save by buying washes in a pack of 5!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY DOG GET A BATH?
Bathe your dog as little as possible.
Unlike humans, dogs don't need daily baths. Bathing your dog every one to three months can help keep most dogs feeling clean. Bathing too frequently can strip your dog's skin of natural oils drying out their skin and coat leading itchiness. When you bathe your dog, use a high-quality, sulfate and paraben free shampoo and don't forget to condition.
Lifestyle influences how often your dog needs a bath.
You can't help if your dog is smelly, rolls in mud, or is just messy. But if your dog doesn't stink too much, consider rinsing them with water and then brushing. This will give most dogs the splash of freshness they need. Brushing and combing between baths can help keep your dog's coat clean.
Certain breeds have different bathing requirements.
Coat type plays a large role in how often your dog needs a bath. Short-haired breeds with smooth coats like Pit Bulls need less frequent baths than long-haired breeds like a Maltese. Breeds such as Labrador Retrievers should be bathed less often to preserve their natural oils and water repellent coats. Dogs with curly coats like poodle mixes need tons of brushing down to the skin and consistent bathing.
