As I mentioned in another post,
Caesar is a handful when it comes to bathing and it takes a special someone to handle him.
When we fostered Caesar I took him to one of those places where you can rent a bath and the supplies on site, just to see what it was like to give him a bath. While he wasn't mouthy or fidgety with me, it was exhausting. With the double coat it takes A LOT to get the fur drenched, scrubbed, and dried. By the end he looked like water was just sprinkled on him while I was soaked through my t-shirt, and we had to still walk home.
After we adopted him I decided it was worth the money to get him bathed. Plus, while we have a tub and walk in shower at home, and I think he would just walk right in since he follows me everywhere, I don't want his fur clogging our drains. My hair already does that.
So who do you call when there's no where else to turn?
Nina at Doggylicious!
Nina is friendly, patient and best of all she comes to you! Literally, she parks in front of our condo! While her schedule does get packed I try to keep a regular cadence so that Caesar gets bathed around the same time every month, and even those times when I completely forget Nina is very proactive and always reminds me. She's extremely reachable (we just text each other) and her prices are very reasonable (approximately $90 for the larger Northern breeds). Note: she only does bathing, no cuts.
Within an hour, voila! Caesar is shockingly bright white, and we just love how extra soft he feels. I think he knows how handsome he is, too.
If you're curious about Nina you can check out other customers' reviews here.
On a completely different note, I'm equally astonished how she manages to maneuver big dogs because she's so tiny!
