WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Those looking for a cheap and quick way to wash their dogs are in luck. A do-it-yourself dog wash manufacturer based in Australia has opened for business right here in the Port City.
The Tru Blu K9000 dog washing station costs $10 for a ten-minute bath for your pup.
The company’s United States headquarters is on Oleander Drive in Wilmington. They held a grand opening charity dog wash event Saturday which will benefit To Your Rescue and Paws4People.
The company’s North American CEO, Paul Baron, says the dog washing stations have been very popular in Australia and he hopes the same for America.
“The dogs love it, people love it, people don’t get wet, the dogs enjoy it,” Baron said. “They can stand, they walk into our system easily, it’s not like the old-fashioned tubs where you have to lift your dog up and kill your back. You don’t have to bring any shampoos, you don’t have to bring any conditioners. We have all biodegradable products that are great for the environment.”
Baron says you could begin seeing the dog washing stations at car washes, pet supply stores and other businesses around the Cape Fear very soon.
