I was born in Iowa and though my family isn't a farming family, we definitely had what I would characterize as a farmer's sensibility about animals--respectful, practical, utilitarian. With such an upbringing, it boggles the mind that my relationship with my dog (Daisy) has evolved to it's current state. She's a great dog (a mutt, the best kind in my opinion) and she's wonderful with my children, but the level of pampering is pretty rediculous.

One of the ways this manifests is in the monthly (ish) bath at our local Petco. You see, Daisy doesn't like cold water. Aparently it doesn't agree with her delicate sensibilities. Also, her skin is sensitive and prone to flaking so we dare not use harsh detergents on her. Finally, with the frigid climate here in Northern California (sometimes dipping in the 50s...gasp) a drying ritual, making use of both towels and blow dryers, is absolutely required.

With all these fussy requirements, we've found not just any dog wash will do - and certainly not the hose in the backyard which would have been considered ludicrous pampering by my grandfather. At any rate, Daisy and I are both happy with the facilities, supplies, and cost of the Petco dog wash (noting that Daisy seems less price sensitive than I am). And, since the whole spectacle provides about an hour of fun for the wife and kids (you should hear the squeels of glee when Daisy shakes her soapy fur all over me, and that's just my wife), I've found peace with the process.

My dog was rescued. He is very afraid of the strangers. Every time when we took him there to get his nails cut, he struggles a lot. The ladies in the grooming department were always very patient with him. They did the job very quickly and neatly. So my dog won?t suffer that much. I am happy that we found the good grooming place for my dog.

Petco is overpriced compared to Pet Club (which is near Costco in Mountain View) and other pet stores. However, it has a lot of pet supplies and you can find practically anything. This particular Petco store isn't in a very good location and the store is smaller than most Petco's.
