If you’re looking for a place to wash your clothes, you go to a laundromat. If you’re looking for a place to clean your car you visit a car wash. But what about your dog?
My Pet Warehouse have had dog washes in their stores for years but recently we’ve just unveiled a stand- alone DIY dog wash and grooming salon! Located in Malvern, the My Pet Wash store is focussed on one thing and one thing only – getting your dog looking good and smelling fresh!
Our new Grooming Salon & DIY Dog Wash in Malvern Victoria
What is a DIY dog wash?
Many of you reading this will be familiar with a hydrobath dog wash but for those who are unsure, a Do It Yourself (DIY) dog wash is exactly what it sounds like. You bathe your own pooch using a special coin operated dog wash system.
Our new Grooming Salon's DIY Dog Washes in action!
These dog washes are pretty nifty because they give you everything you need to wet, shampoo, condition, rinse and dry your dog. Some people may be reading this and thinking “I can do this all at home!”
This is true but if you have a 40kg Bernese Mountain dog, you can’t exactly pop him in your kitchen sink… Not to mention even the littlest of dogs can scramble out of the bathtub leaving behind a trail of soapy destruction.

How can I make a booking?
