What do you think of this as a business idea? Do you think it would be profitable? A u-wash dog wash store?

Would you invest in one?

Scrubadub in the tub: Self-service dog washes are taking off (http://www.boston.com/news/local/maine/articles/2007/12/31/scrubadub_in_the_tub_self_service_dog_washes_are_t aking_off/) - Washing a dog, especially a big one, is messy. The dog shakes. Dirty, soapy water splashes on the walls. Your knees, your back, or both hurt from kneeling next to the bathtub. Then there's the big lump of dog hair in the drain.

That's what was on the minds of Francisco and Gloria Gamero when they opened their first dog wash 15 years ago in Santa Clarita, Calif. They now have three U-Wash Doggie locations. U-Wash, like Dirty Dog, offers franchising opportunities.

I get my dog washed about once a month. But I have them do it. They are good at it and its just easier so I don't get all wet.
It is cheaper for me to do go there and do it myself.

There is also more places around here that offer a place for the customer to do it rather than them doing it themselves.

How much is the service? How long does it take?

With tax about $35.
They clip his nails, flea bath, regular bath, and dry him off.
He's usually there about 4 hours so he can dry off all the way.

Well worth it to me so I don't have to do it. I used to do it at home and the whole bathroom floor would be wet and so would I. I don't even want to take him somwhere to do it myself. Just let them deal with it.
