Self-Service Dog Wash and Full Service Pet Salon

Bergen County New Jersey’s 1st Self-Service Dog Wash and Full Service Pet Salon ™

Gentle hydrotherapy massage system is used to bathe your dogs and all pets are safe and secure on our tables which are equipped with the LIPS system (dog is secured from back and front) and we can do geriatric dogs with no pain to their back ends. All dogs are dried by hand; we do not use cage driers for your safety and the pet’s well being. We also do not cage dogs unless it is more comfortable for them or unless they have a medical condition which would make it dangerous for them to sit on a counter.

…They wait on our counters secured by a tether.

Wag ‘ N Wash salon has a warm and inviting look. We have a comfortable waiting area for our human customers and our bathing and drying areas are  separate so no unwanted hair will be coming your way when you walk in the door with your pet. Classical music is always playing and we are always diffusing an essential oil to calm the pets and keep the karma balanced.

We still provide an elevated tub to prevent bending; long spray hoses, tearless, natural shampoos and conditioners; safety chains to prevent your dog from jumping or falling, professional pet dryers, towels, brushes, aprons and colognes. We also provide pet stairs so that you may comfortably get your dog in the tub and/or onto the counter for blow drying.
